NYE dinner - food and service consistently exceptional! We love that it is quiet. Highly recommend for dinner as well as for catering - they do an outstanding job!!
This was probably the worst service we have ever experienced at Gaspares. We waited over an hour for our meal. We also were next to a table of four and they never stopped talking in loud voices. They also decided to FaceTime a young grandchild. This is a very small restaurant and I don’t really want to hear a conversation with a child. My husband and I couldn’t even hear each other.
Finally we waited more than 15 or 20 minutes to get our check so we could pay and go home.
A very disappointing experience all around. I hope Gaspare looks into the long stretch of time to get our meal. There were empty tables so it wasn’t that busy.
Excellent food and dessert was delicious
Great food, even my finicky 9 year old loved. Worth every penny.
great dinner,patrick was awesome! had pizza,lasagna,meatballs w/ricotta. love this little place
Small warm place. Food was delicious
Great local place to get a terrific meal. Make a reservation- space is very limited!
Excellent gourmet style Italian food in a casual but nice atmosphere
My family and I have been coming to Gaspare’s for twenty years. They treat us like family. Their food is outstanding with the service to match. Everyone they make is delicious.
Have eaten here often! Food is always delicious, service is always superb! Love this little gem!
Always exceptional. Delicious food. Kind waiter. Chilled wine glasses.
Food was outstanding, martinis were excellent!! Gaspares is a hidden gem in EHT. We’ve been eating here for 30 years!! Highly recommend this restaurant!!!
Couldn’t have been happier with our dinner last night. The food was great and the service was awesome. Even though the staff was busy, they all took the time to si g happy birthday to my sweet god-daughter. THANK YOU,
The food was amazing. There are some menu items that weren’t available that were listed on the menu but with so much to choose from it wasn’t a problem. It is a very small place so definitely need reservations.
Great menu, delicious food and excellent affordable wine choices!
I loved that you can choice meat or fish with many delicious toppings over your choice of pasta. It is such a fun concept!
It was like eating in a friend’s home. Our waitress was as helpful, kind and efficient as could be! We liked everything about our experience!
We’ll be back soon.
I have been to Gaspares restaurant many times, I almost always get the veal because it's ALWAYS the best I have had anywhere. But all their food is amazing, I just love it there.
We have been dining at Gaspare’s whole on vacation for the past 18 years! Of course, with the pandemic we had not been there for almost two years. However, over the entire time we have been going here absolutely nothing has changed. The staff is always friendly and accommodating and the food is beyond delicious. No matter what you order everything is consistently delicious. We always recommend Gaspare’s to anyone we know will be in the area!!!
Amazing food and service! Veal Spartacus was incredibly tender, sea bass was cooked perfectly, seafood pescatore was abundant and delicious and the penne alla vodka with shrimp was delectable! Special shout out to the marinara sauce with garlic bread! And Jillian continues to provide incredible service. We love Gaspare’s!
Amazing food and service! Do not let the fact that it’s in a strip mall sway your decision on this gem of a restaurant! Seven of us went and there was not one complaint! We had six different appetizers everything from the meatballs ricotta, eggplant rollatini, eggplant with goat cheese, stuffed long hots, all amazing! I had the mushroom ravioli with colossal crab meat, outstanding! Everybody’s plates were clean is all I can tell you! We'll be back!
We go there on a regular basis. At least once a week.
Outstanding food, reasonably priced. Consistently good.
Everything was wonderful!! Heard so many good thing about this restaurant that we had to try it out. From the moment we walked in, until the time we left, the whole entire staff was super friendly and attentive. Food was delicious!! Can’t wait to go back again!!
Food fabulous!!!! Highly recommend… Service over the top!!!
From the outside it looks like an ordinary place, but don't let looks fool you. The food is great. Service is fine. I have been here several times and I will be back again real soon,
As always our dinner was delicious. We brought friends with us who hadn't been there for years and were very pleased. We were lucky enough to have Emily as our server once again - she knows the menu, answered questions and made suggestions.
All in all, looking forward to returning soon.
Haven’t been to Gaspares in a while so wanted to go back. Nice that they take reservations although it was not as busy on a Friday like the days of having to wait to get in.
The hostess/server was awesome. So friendly and efficient. The back server/busboy/ pretty much do whatever asked was awesome. Totally on top of what was going on and very polite.
The garlic bread and salad were delicious. The Calamari has too much breading but the spicy marinara was yummy.
My Veal Mileaneae was ok but again too much breading. My wife’s Chicken Francaise was very good. Tender and the sauce was VERY GOOD!
My side of Pasta was perfect!
One more note- while they need more than old Grand Dad and Jim Beam on the bar our server(also the bartender) made an excellent Manhattan
Food was great.. Jillian our waitress was wonderful... So enjoyed our evening!!!!
We are regulars at Gaspares. Food is always wonderful, and they will even create whatever you ask! One of the best restaurants in this area!
great little place, pizza,marinara to die for,meatballs, all good!
Always very good food.
Always enjoy eating at Gaspare's. The food is always excellent and the servers do a great job of taking care of us. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in a family owned and run Italian restaurant.
As always food was excellent... Service was over the top... Emily was fabulous!!!!
Love then food
The food was delicious!! My husband has the chicken parm and I had the Chilean Sea Bass grilled with lemon and broccoli brabe. I have a severe gluten allergy and our server Emily was so helpful navigating the menu and alerting the kitchen. When we return to NJ we will go back for sure.
Small place but the food and service are excellent ... reasonable prices too. One of the only restaurants at the jersey that will take a reservation. Wonderful dining experience!
The restaurant is very nice but very small. You start to feel very crammed. The food was good up until my girlfriend got her shrimp which tasted like dish soap. The servers were great and did everything in their power to ensure we had a good experience though.
Reservation was honored and we were seated immediately. Small restaurant, but with an attentive staff. Complimentary garlic bread is brought to the table right after being seated. Extremely large menu selection. Everyone had a different meal, and everyone enjoyed their choices.
The food here is exceptional!
