Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had just an amazing evening here. We hadn't booked, but despite there being a large party in, were able to get a table for the 3 of us on Saturday evening. The staff were fantastic, service was really good too and the food was...just what we were looking for. Can highly recommend this restaurant, and the baked mushroom starter !More

If you are looking for a friendly, unique restaurant, then look no further. Authentic Italian home cooked food, great selection and absolutely delicious. Intimate, cosy atmosphere and plentiful parking nearby. Would highly recommend

A delightful, authentic smaller Italian restaurant in Old Town. A traditional setting offers a pleasant experience with friendly Italian staff. We loved the ambiance and felt like we were in Italy itself! The food was very good, we both had pasta which was plentiful and...tasty. I would highly recommend.More

Gaetanos - what can I say? Other than Superb. Carlo is a fantastic host , the food is fantastic. I would recommend the entire menu but you can’t go wrong if you stick with the specials. Tonight’s special starter, Stuffed pepper was a meal on...its own. My wife and I discovered Gaetanos this year after being frequent fliers at another Italian in old Town . Wish we had found Gaetanos sooner. The food is fantastic and you will never go hungry!More

This venue is beautiful. We booked for a party of approx 25 ladies for a baby shower. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was amazing! Beautifully cooked selection of starters, mains of various pastas and freshly cooked italian pizza! The staff are very...helpful and polite. Would definitely recommend this venue to anyone for both parties and a cosy meal with friends and family. Thank you for a wonderful experience! We will certainly be visiting again.More

The starter of calamari was ok. The meal was really let down by the main. I had the chicken and mushroom pasta. The ‘chicken’ in the pasta was the cheap pre sliced chicken that comes in packets from supermarket. It was clearly just added to...the sauce. Unfortunately, sauce was watery and lacked flavour.More

My wife and I stumbled upon Gaetano's while searching for another well known Italian restaurant. And we're glad we found this gem first! We ordered fillet steaks and I can honestly say that I've never eaten a more generous, perfectly cooked fillet steak in my...entire life! What a joy!! Sadly, we were only on a temporary visit to Swindon and live over a hundred miles away, otherwise this restaurant would feature very high on my 'return to' list. The owner (who also doubles as the chef) is clearly a very talented chef and the very least I could do for such a sumptious meal and wonderful evening is to leave a fitting recommendation. Very highly recommended indeed!More
