Our first time to this restaurant. I have been wanting to try it for some tine. Drinks were delicious- bread always good- appetizer ordered calamari could be the best I have had in quite some time. I ordered the butternut squash ravioli and my boyfriend ordered the lasagna. His lasagna came out as a giant delicious brick. It was enough for three meals. My ravioli came out as a mushroom pasta- not wanting to wait and not liking to waste food I ate it anyways. The dish was heavy and was ok tasting. They charges me for the dish, which I think they should have given complementary. We split the spumoni ice cream- glad we did it was huge. Between the both of us we did not even eat half of it. Overall, we liked the place and will go back. I will be getting those raviolis next time though. Hopefully, second time is a charm.
Marissa was great as a server. Stephanie is an awesome bartender.
We were pleasantly surprised that, on one of the busiest dining days of the year, Valentine's Day, and albeit, a little crowded, service and food was still great! We had a wonderful time and the whole experience exceeded our expectations. Thank you.
Food and service are excellent as always.
Perfect. Service good, noise level fine.
It was a nice luncheon, my lasagna was not hot enough, even after asking.
Always good food here and the service is usually fast & friendly.
Service was excellent but food was average. I’d been there a number of times before and food was better.
Wonderful food and service. Such a special place!
This place is amazing. I was in Torrance for the Oscar shorts on a Monday at the movie theater and needed somewhere to eat before the movie and looked up where to eat and Gaetano's was recommended. We went in and immediately loved the vibe and the service was amazing. When we left, we immediately made reservations for that Wednesday because we were going back to the movie theater and knew we HAD to eat here again. IT'S THAT GOOD!! I can't wait to go back. On Monday's they have a great deal that's called the ladies' night out where the main dishes are half the size and price which is perfect for going out with the ladies! HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
We arrived in time for happy hour prices, and enjoyed the bruschetta & a glass of Merlot at a reduced price. The bruschetta was crispy with fresh tomatoes & plenty of garlic. The house salad came with olives, which I loved but my partner didn't (don't think the menu mentioned them). I had the penne with asparagus & enjoyed every bite. The service this time was very good, but last time not great, otherwise I'd give a higher rating.
Give it a try - molto delizioso!
Always wonderful! Food is great as is the service. Love the Ladies Night.
Gaetano’s is always sooo wonderful and every one really cares about their customers!!
McKenzie is always sooo wonderful
I just loved our dinner. Our server was so cool and made our night extra special. Thursday night 3-course dinner with wine is such a great idea. Looking forward to our next time at Gaetanos!!!!
Attentive! Meal was excellent as usual. Never disappoints.
This restaurant is a favorite for my husband and me. The ambiance, the food, and the service are always a 10+.
Delicious food and great ambiance. Very friendly staff and great service. We will definitely eat there again!
The noise level was low because we were seated outside. If noise is an issue, I strongly suggest you sit outside.
We really had a great time on my birthday. Our server Diane was fantastic. A great night.
My only recommendation is to make the patio dog friendly. I live in Orange County and it’s a drive to come there just for dinner. It would be nice to spend the afternoon walking my dog and go eat dinner after.
Lunch combo is always a great way to eat some favorite dishes.
We have been to Gaetano’s twice and both times our meals were amazingly delicious!! Their bruschetta is the best I’ve had! Hopefully we will go again and again and again!
The food and service are fantastic !! We eat here several times a month and are always pleased with the excellent food options. Their cocktails are fabulous too! This is a must try for any Italian food lovers. They also do a fabulous job celebrating birthdays and special occasions. It’s no wonder they’ve been in business almost 30 years and are always packed every night!
My husband and I enjoyed dinner on the the patio before going to a movie. It was a really cold night but Gaetanos had eight heat lamps on in the patio. Everything was delightful!
Great Local Neighborhood Italian Restaurant. Always enjoy going there and the food and service is very good.
Spouse & I in town & met to catch up with friend from high school. Seated and served quickly but not in a rushed way. Was busy but it did not feel uncomfortably crowded or loud. Alex was a great server striking just the right balance of being there and not. Food was exactly what I was looking for. Looking forward to going again.
I’ll go back. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Personally, I liked the baked mostacioli.
Gaetano's is a go-to local favorite. The food and service are consistently good, and the restaurant is always busy. Highly recommended.
Asked for a booth, and got it! Everything was great. Love the place.
I've been here before and the food is great. There service was just ok this time. They need to work on the timing of bringing out their dishes. For example, despite asking for our appetizer 3-4 times, it came out long after we were finished eating our entrees. When we ordered our desserts, there was a 10 min wait between bringing them out. My suggestion is to at least bring out the kids dessert before the adults. My youngest waited as she watched the rest of us eat our melting spumoni. We also had to make multiple requests for our 2nd dessert to come out as I wasn't sure if they had forgotten it like they had our appetizer. Our server was super nice but I just wish she had been more on it with the appetizer being so late... and then having a repeat performance with our dessert being late. We should have cancelled our appetizer at that point. We still tipped well considering this was a one time experience.
Consistent quality and service
A little noisy but that's ok.
The citrus salmon salad, bread, peach limonada and tiramisu were excellent! Love the outdoor patio and grape vines out front.
Good food if you like Italian. Service was a little on the low side but the excuse as we always hear is someone called in sick or in other words lack of staff. But the food is good.
New Year’s Eve with family.
Unaccommodating front desk... was cold sitting by the door and they would not move me. I did notice tables open.
The place was very busy. We had to wait a bit but it was it was new year's eve. Sat outside which was fine with the heaters. Probably quieter. Wait staff was attentive. The bread is a great enticer of what's to come. Had Capresse appetizer, excellent presentation. Then split a green salad, which is large, nice dressing. Entre's of butternut squash ravioli YUM and the baked mostaccioli. Both outstanding and plenty. Took home lunch for the next day. Highly reccomend this place
Enjoy the friendly staff and delicious food. A little noisy, but mostly pleasant. I miss the piano that used to entertain!
Food great as always, But my lasagna was barely warmed.
