I was in search of a really good Italian restaurant that is comparable to what I'm used to in New Jersey. That when I came across Gaetano's and was very satisfied. The service was amazing and the food was perfect. Would have given a 5☆ but felt a little cramped do to the tight seating. Definitely a must try.

My friends and I go there frequently for lunch. Every meal has been wonderful and my friends would agree. I love their coffee and even inquired about the brand. The Eggplant Parmesan is one of my favorites.

We have eaten here 50+ times and are always totally satisfied with the food and the friendly family service.
My favorite is Linguine with white clam sauce and my wife's eggplant parmigian.
They also have the option of a 6 oz or a 9 oz glass of wine with 2 glasses.
Reservations are a must!
Once a month they also have regional italian dinners , usually Wednesdays.

Been going there for over 13 yrs. Has gone through a real transformation--had a couple of dozen very good family Italian recipes on the menu. Over the last 3-5 yrs, family matriarch has transitioned management to daughter and now to grandson. All good as it has evolved from a good home-style restaurant to an Italian gourmet establishment with a much reduced (yet ample), but very select excellent menu that the grandson has developed after 6-12 months spent in Italy training on and selection for Gaetano's very choice dishes. This is the place to go for authentic, tasty and very satisfying Italian dishes.
