Real NY sandwiches, fresh bread from Arthur Ave, and a great variety of hot food as well. Have used them for catering and lunch - good stuff! and the new store is gorgeous! A little too much of the "hey baby" for my liking, so I send my husband in when I can.

Coming from a Stratford resident, Gaetano's is hands down my favorite place to go when I am in the mood for a sandwich or grinder. The staff is always happy and upbeat, and truly care for their customers. I believe everyone in Stratford would agree that this place is one of the best!

Gaetano's is the best deli in the entire area. We have many sandwiches there and have used them for much of your catering needs. Their food is great quality delicious and we're never disappointed. It's a family-owned and operated business and it shows.

Was in Stratford for 4 days visiting family and had lunch here 2 times. This place is simply the best deli. Service is always the best. Quality ingredients and fresh bread. Makes a great meal. Not sure if they were just playing with me but they said they were coming to Florida ! That would be awesome

I have been to Gaetano's Deli now two other times since July of '15. Whenever I am travelling the I-95 corridor in CT I always stop. This past weekend was no different. On our way back from a softball tourney in Delaware we got a craving for a sandwich, and we came here. Once again the service was friendly, humorous... More

What can you really say about a deli that's over the top in service, food quality, and affordability? Great subs, quality products, and entertaining workers. Have been to many delis throughout the country and this ranks as THE best. You will not be disappointed if you enjoy Italian food.
