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!

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.

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!

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.

The food was good. However, I ordered the Fluke Francaise and it wasn't available. I then switched to the Blackened Grouper and that was not available. I ended up with the Bronzino which was very good.
Both my husband and I ordered dessert to go. I ordered the Ricotta cheesecake - which was delicious and a good portion. My husband ordered the peanut butter pie. I opened them both last nite and he wanted me to take a picture of the peanut butter pie. It was only maybe 3" by 4" in length. The cost of it was $7.00 which was a horrible price for about 4 bites of pie.
We both thought our bill was high - $98.32 for the dinner we had.
We still will order take out - We love your pizza and subs, but I don't think we'll be dining in any time soon.
Thank you,
Doris and Frank Jacoby

Anniversary dinner. Little concern: they charged for the coffee refill. They adjusted it when I called their attention to it. Then they charged $9.00 for ricotta cheesecake. On the menu it states $6.00. On the table, it has a dessert sign for $7.00. Which is it?

as usual food and service was excellent-I have been coming to Gaspares for many years--My main problem is all the upgrade charges--I especially found the upgrade for soup instead of salad very petty-your help felt the same way

Without a doubt, our very favorite Italian restaurant. Everything is cooked fresh and is fantastic. The tables are a little tight, but it's part of the vibe. The staff is always efficient, friendly and responsive. We've eaten there countless times and have had catered food delivered to our home. Every time...perfect.

We enjoy our experience here every time we come. The wait staff is experienced, professional, and very attentive. The menu is so large, that it is almost difficult to choose just one thing. Every meal has been excellent that we have had here.

Mother’s Day dinner. Outstanding eggplant rollatini, not enough servers working for the busy holiday resulted in poor service which is very unusual for this place. Recommend not going for a holiday unless they get more help!
