Exceptional Italian food! Three of us had the gnocchi with three different sauces. Each was wonderful. The others has eggplant rollatini and a seasonal pasta with butternut squash. All were served with salad and house dressing. Coffees completed the meal and their great canolis. Make a res...... last time we were turned away!
This visit wasn’t as good as usual. I had penne with vodka sauce which was good, but my husband ordered his favorite lasagna.. That was what disappointed. He said it was not good at all. Unusual for Gaspare’s.
Food is outstanding!! This was our second visit, first time was a little crowded and short staffed, second time was great!! Can’t wait to get back!!!
GREAT EVERYTIME! WE BROUGHT A NEW COUPLE WHO LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THE RESTAURANT
My wife an I love Gaspares. We eat there once every couple of weeks. The Italian food is excellent and the best value in the South Jersey area. The staff is also very friendly and the service is terrific!
Excellent food, excellent service, friendly atmosphere
we have been going to Gaspares for 30 years. we brought our grown son & 2 of his friends tonight who, even though they are local, had never been there before. everyone enjoyed their dinner, deliciousness all around!
Great food, reasonably priced, big servings and great service. Been going for 40 years and never had a bad meal. Small but cozy atmosphere. I wouldn’t change a thing! I try to go every Saturday and never get tired of it. My favorite place!
Absolutely perfect evening. Excellent food! Excellent service!
Gaspares never disappoints. I have introduced many people to the restaurant and they go back to frequent the restaurant time and time again. Great seafood, fabulous Italian dishes and delicious cocktails. My family compares every restaurant to Gaspares and so many do not meet the standards set by this small, quaint family restaurant.
Returned after my initial visit 2 weeks ago I was not disappointed. The food was great and we the servers were very customer friendly.
Excellent food and service nice local restaurant that is much better than well known fancy restaurants.
Food was very good!! Looked short handed in the service area only two waitresses to a full house with large parties. Will definitely go again!’
The food is always outstanding. The service absolutely spectacular. What a great combination!
Can’t wait to return just to dine! This time was our 47th anniversary! Just a wonderful experience.
We eat there weekly. Food and drink specials are great.
Very busy place last night... very small and intimate seating.. had to wait 20-25 mins even though we had an 8:30 resv. Enjoyed and joked abt the people coming in and staring over the dining area, hoping diners would hurry up and eat so they could take their place.. some were relentless..
I thought the wait was worth it!! I enjoyed the house salad and my veal marsala... my Wife thought her crab pasta dish was good but nothing special...
wait staff was very attentive and apologetic for the longer than average wait!! If you are looking to get in and get out, forget it!! If you are looking for a new Italian experience then give them a try... I wasn’t disappointed... manga
Great food. Great price. Great service. Who could ask for more?
This is a small neighborhood place so plan on the tables being close together. Nice happy hour drink specials and the bread and sauce is a nice touch.
Great food!! Service was friendly. This is definitely a winner. I have already made another reservation.
Gasser's never disappoints! Consistently delicious meals with an unbelievable menu selection!
Will get going back!
I wouldn’t go back... Food was meh at best. Everything was just ok. The place is way too small with small tables. There’s a difference between cozy and small, this place was just too small for the amount of people they pack in. The place was also very pricey. $250 including tip for 4 adults and 2 kids, 1 kid had a small pizza only and no one had any alcohol...
Fabulous Italian food! Always happy with what I order! Their red sauce is so good that I always get something with that!
Had another fantastic meal at Gaspare’s. Food and service were outstanding. Jillian was our waitress and she was extraordinarily attentive.
Always very good. Recommend that you make a reservation.
Been going here for years. Always excellent. Got there early and was only two tables occupied but by the time we left there was a waiting line. Food is always excellent, service is great and you cannot beat the prices. Highly recommend.
Service and food were very good. Extra noisy, couldn’t even talk or hear each other.
Always dependable, good food, tacky with so many tv's with food pictures.
Great food and service. Food is always great, highly recommendAAA
Best restaurant and Italian food ! It’s our go to place for dinner & sandwiches.
Seats were ready on-time. Excellent service and food.
We’ve been dining here for nearly 30 years. It is by no means just a pizza place - alrhough the pizza is delicious. The food is varied, fresh and never disappoints. The marinara sauce is particularly outstanding. Terrific veggie options, great chicken, shrimp and everything in between.
had a chocolate martini delicious food always great
Service was terrible. Portions were not the normal for them. Presentation was only fair.
Excellent Italian food near ocean city with a full bar. Great menu choices. Reasonable value. TV screens all over the place with pictures of their delicious food, exactly As prepared. Little tacky however.
We had a new server who was overwhelmed and not well trained. It took forever to place our order, and we asked for a corkscrew. Because so many restaurants at the shore are BYOB we mistakenly thought that was the case as well. We brought 2 bottles of wine which the server finally opened. After being extremely patient during our 2 hr meal, imagine our surprise when our bill contained a $20 corkage fee!! We were never informed they had a bar and would have willingly ordered wine instead. We took it up with the owner who shrugged and charged us $10 instead! Her attitude and total disregard for our overly lengthy meal ruined the dinner for all of us. Our friends all said they won’t return.
Great food as usual..BUT..there were signs advertising $5 Martini's.but when ordered one from there martini menu u were charged $10. After the fact u were told those weren't included. Still don't know what was $5.
GREAT food. Try the pasta with sausage and broccoli rabe. Decor is more of a local pizza place. Tight but pleasant. Service is slow, but everything is made to order. Good value. Authentic Italian.
Like the place but have to pay extra if vegetables instead of pasta, how does an Italian restaurant fun out of Parmesan cheese, waitress needs more training. Tends to be expensive for a neighborhood restaurant-$90/couple only 1 glass of wine.
Great meal and service
restaurant small but friendly. Food excellant. Service fair
