I love Penne Arabbiata but not every Italian restaurant offers it. I had been waiting to have Gaetano's Penne Arabbiata for a month -- and it did not disappoint! It was actually better than I had imagined. Just the right amount of an actual pepper to bring the heat but not so much heat that it overpowered the flavor, the exceptionally good flavor.
The other three diners enjoyed their meals. My friend who had the Chicken Piccata said it was good but she likes her Piccata to be very lemony, as I do. She would have preferred it to be more lemony. Knowing that, I'll stick with the Penne Arabbiata on my next visit, although Chicken Piccata is a favorite of mine.
We were seated within a minute or two of arrival, even though it was a busy Saturday evening. (We had reservations.) Our waiter Angel was excellent, as was his bus support. Our water glasses were kept full; the wine glasses were topped off frequently. Angel helped us select a bottle of wine. It was good, it paired well with the food and it was reasonably priced.
The restaurant offers free valet parking.
Great food strong drinks and an amazing atmosphere. Our waiter was fantastic and took very good care of us
Wonderful Italian food with terrific service
Yummy food! They were able to accommodate our party of ten last minute. Everyone loved their food and the dessert was also delicious! They brought out a variety of of desserts for our table to share and indulge in. We had the filet mignon with the butternut squash, spaghetti and meatballs, pork chop was huge, spaghetti carbonara, along with a variety of appetizers. The only issue was the noise level. It was difficult to have a conversation due to the noisy atmosphere. Other than that, everything tasted great and service was also good.
Truly authentic southern Italian cuisine. Atmosphere and service are fantastic. The food is phenomenal. Just love this place.
Gaetanos has always been a favorite of ours. Our problem is we live on the opposite side of town, so a 30/40 minute ride is always challenging but well worth it. When we had out of town, east coast friends in town and wanted to go off-Strip for great Italian? We chose Gaetanos. While old man Gaetano is no longer with us (RIP) the family at Nick's helm has kept the food, tradition and ambiance alive! Well worth the trip. Everything is delish!
This is one of our favorite places in Henderson. Very hard to beat for the best Italian food around.
This was our 1st time at the restaurant. We were greeted and served professionally. We were there on a Tuesday night it was very quiet very few people. There were a number of specials offered and all of them seemed good. The owner Nick stopped by to check on us. That made us feel special.
It is always nice to go to a restaurant that serves exquisite food and has excellent service, without being haughty.
Beautiful dining room , excellent food and adequate staff
Enjoyed all the courses. I had the signature dish , Ossobuco, which was excellent. My guests all enjoyed their choices for appetizers and main course which included a duck special dish. One of my guests had the Tiramisu for dessert and loved it. We will be back.
Squash ravioli in sage butter was fantastic. Eggplant parm was a large, flavorful portion.
Always, top-notch. One of our favorites in Las Vegas/Henderson.
Good food as always, good service, we'll be back as regulars.
This was our 1st time at Gaetano's but not our last. One of the Best Restaraunts in Henderson!! The Food and Martini's were Fantastic and the Service was 2nd to None!
Gaetano's is a MUST while in Vegas. Food and drinks are the best in Vegas. We have been "regulars" at this restaurant for a long time and it first on our list for "date night!"

Food was excellent. Service excellent.
We had a Lovely Birthday celebration!The service was excellent and meal outstanding!
Fabulous flavors and great ambiance. I ordered the special (and waiter’s favorite) the Ossu Buco and I was blown away. His suggestion is one of my new favorites!
I enjoyed the ambiance in the dining room. It’s low lite pink walls with a splash of color from some fun paintings were elegant and comfortable. The music was very nice and I even caught one elderly man nearby singing softly to his wife.
Great food served by our excellent waiter, Barry. This is a neighborhood gem that continues be one of our favorite Las Vegas restaurants.
The wife and I decided to try this place out for NYE as many other restaurants didn't have availability. We are glad we did. Prices a bit more than average (it was NYE too). The service staff were hustling but still a bit slow and inattentive. The food however was PHENOMENAL! Will go there again sometime in the future when we have the $ to spend.
NYE dinner was not up to previous standards at this restaurant. Best to go during non holidy times for a better experience.
Always quality food and service especially on a special night
Staff did a good job of serving our table. I had to ask for wine (he forgot) but given shortage of staff he di very good overall. Sea Bass was a little fishy and braises Short Ribs were excellent. Bread didn’t get served with cocktails and salads.
Food and service are always 5 star
Amazing loved the meatball starter, house salad was yummy the star was the pesto Pistachio risotto. The butter nut squash raviolis I liked as well.
Outstanding once again. From the greeting when we first walk in throughout the entire meal, Nick and the entire staff at Gaetano’s delivers an amazing dining experience. We have been dining here for years and the specials are always the show stoppers for us. Thanks again Nick, the Chef’s and the rest of the team.
Wonderful holiday atmosphere, great service and great food.
Christmas Eve dinner. Within the fabulous menu we celebrated the traditional Sicilian feast of the seven fishes.
Place was packed for Christmas Eve. Food was terrific and service was good.
One of our favorite places. Will be back, but we could tell the staff was stressed. Got charged for an item we didn’t get. They made it right, but that is a pet peeve.
Great atmosphere. Phenomenal food. Awesome wine and spirits.
An absolutely amazing culinary experience. We had a special, Christmas Eve dinner. Delicious family recipes. It’s a high light spot for the Vegas area. 9.7/10.
The food was phenomenal! Everyone in our group raved about the food. The staff were very attentive and accommodating. Thank you for a wonderful meal
Great neighborhood Italian restaurant. The food in excellent, and our server, Arnold, is terrific. The owner, Nick, is very personable and will always make sure everything meets your expectations. Highly recommend.
Always great food and service. A neighborhood gem worth a trip from anywhere in Vegas.
First time was very nice will definitely go back.
Best place ever. Food and service was over the top
great atmosphere, reasonable prices, terrific food. This is one of the best restaurants in Las Vegas. I would eat there more often if it were closer and the parking there is absolutely horrendous. They do have a valet however.
Outstanding food. Specials change every week. Wednesdays a great time to go - half price wine and free valet!
