We have never been disappointed at Gaspare’s. Our friends really enjoyed their first visit and couldn’t believe the service and quality of food.
We have now become sort of regulars here. Excellent food; friendly staff. Thank you.
This place is a hidden gem. Not what you would expect from what looks like a pizza/sub restaurant in a strip mall. The service and quality of the food was superb. The prices were very reasonable for excellent quality fish. I love the fact that you can have your (generous portion) protein prepared exactly the way you want, with any number of sauces. All entrees come with soup or salad and pasta. We ordered a bottle of wine which was a good value. I understand you can BYOB but there is a corkage fee. We plan on returning for another meal.
We have been going to Gaspares for over 15 years and have never been disappointed..the service is excellent and the staff personable and courteous.The food is AMAZING...always hot and plentiful...I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a great Italian meal.
Very good food and service. Quality stands out. Small, intimate.
As usual, service and food was very good. Had an additional guest with us on Sunday and my brother and his wife enjoyed it as well. Earlier in the week, I mentioned our first visit to my brother and how good it was. His friend was nearby and as soon as I mentioned Gaspares, he said it was one of his and his wife's favorites. This conversation took place in Philadelphia, not at the shore. My brother's friend has a home in OC and travels to Gaspares frequently.
This is THE best Italian restaurant we’ve been to in many, many years. What a great find for us! Thank you.
Has been our go to Italian restaurant since it opened in the ‘80’s.
Gaspares always offers wonderful food. The vinaigrette was a little too acidic, but everything else made up for it. They offer such a great early bird that I hate to advertise it. So many choices make it hard to choose, but every one delicious. No wonder they’ve been in business for so long.
As always, we enjoyed our meal. Restaurant looked beautiful and was decorated for fall, enhancing our experience. Wait staff is extremely attentive, food was delicious. Look forward to returning soon
Wish this place was in center city Philly...there would be a line out the door from when they open til they close. Place is charming & very inviting & comfortable...I didn't want to leave
We were in AC & to Egg Harbor...short ride...the most delicious lunch @ 11am HOUR HOUR starts so we were right on time.
For an appetizer..we had a glass of wine & a slice of pizza. Pizza was perfect! Following that, shrimp scampi had to bring some of it home, good size portion for lunch,
All the reviews I read were true! Gaspares is a delicious place for many years...our waitress who ran the place could not have been nicer....very helpful a lovely lady.
Hope before the first frost we can get back to GASPARES this place could be habit forming....the food is FABULOUS!
Wow! We've been to dozens of Italian restaurants, but this one is very special. Top-of-the-line food with more than ample portions, and sauces among the best we've ever had. We're goin' back next week to try some of other interesting stuff we saw on the video menu along the walls.
Food was delicious and service was excellent! Can’t wait to go back!!
Food was wonderful,will be back soon
Always good at Gaspares
Outstanding food and service, always a go to place for excellent Italian food...the menu has something for everyone!
Always a treat to come to Gaspares for great Italian comfort food.
His marinara (gravy) sauce is to die for.
Who else would travel 1200 miles each summer to AC and Gaspares?
All the best.
Always a great go to place when in Ocean City.
Food was decent, portions were massive, price felt high.
ANOTHER DELICIOUS MEAL!! Can’t wait to come back!!
Thank you for another perfect meal 🥘!
And great service as always 👍😊
delicious as always, a hidden treasure, my halibut was amazing!
Great food and excellent service
Love this place!!!!
Excellent food and superior service. I highly recommend.
We have coming to Gaspere's for over 35 years. We love and our grown son's love it too. Every time they come home, they want to come to your restaurant. Great overall experience
Gaspares is an outstanding place to have really good food without breaking the bank. We had a Brooklyn pizza that was so thin and full of cheese, fresh tomato chunks that it made a memorable appetizer. The gnocchi in blush was outstanding. I had eggplant parmesan with fettuccine and it was absolutely delicious.
Food is exceptional. Limited seating so reservations is required especially on weekends. A wee bit noisy on a crowed Saturday but did not bother us. We foodies enjoyed our meal. Will definitely go again!
Great food, great service.... a large selection to please everyone
We went to Gaspares to celebrate my husbands 60th Birthday. Everything was wonderful, the waitstaff friendly and attentive, the food excellent as always. We are never disappointed with Gaspares!
Again we had another DELICIOUS MEAL!!
I ate everything on my plate!
It was delicious.
Our favorite go to restaurant for years. Everything is cooked to order. Reservations are recommended because the dining room is small.
It’s a very small restaurant in a shopping strip. They do a ton of takeout. We waited 45 minutes for our table and sat next to an orange bucket of dripping water from the ceiling. The waitstaff was very nice and did the best they could. The food was delicious and their martinis are very large so that was a bonus.
The Italian Dishes are excellent !! That's why Gaspares Italian Bistro has been around for 47 Years !!
Wonderful dinner last night. We enjoyed the chicken parm, chicken franchise, and chicken Florentine. We all enjoyed our meals that came with salad and garlic bread. Service was very friendly and prompt. You can’t go wrong here!
Always DELICIOUS 😋
Everyone is very nice.
Very Consistent every time!
Thank you !
Very nice, very small, very good Italian restaurant.
Menu is amazing and our dinners - halibut and Lobster ravioli's were delicious.
Other diners choices looked ample and equally delicious.
Reservation definitely rec. as there are only about 10-12 tables.
The brusetta that they serve every table is delicious and they had no qualms when we requested twice more. Entrees came with pasta and salad and was served piping hot. The four of us enjoyed our dinners very much and plan to go again.
Thank you for another DELICIOUS MEAL!!!
Love the service and everyone is always consistent, kind and so friendly.
Can’t wait to come back!!
Very good food and service! Great menu with lots of choices.
