Last night after several years of walking by this place we finally made it to Gaetano's and we are happy to report that we had a very nice dinner. Although the reviews have been mixed on this restaurant we would recommend it to others. The only negative was it is now a large space devided into two rooms with ceramic tile floors and other hard surfaces which tend to elevate the noise level.
We shared the calamari calabrese appetizer, which was plenty for two people and it was excellent in quality and taste. For the main course my wife had gnocchi and I had the lobster ravioli - both delicious. Although I brougtht my own wine, I decided to order one of their local NJ selections from Westfal Winery. A sangeovese that was not bad but a little on the sweet side for my taste. At $23. it was a fair price.
Our food server Melanie was attentive and efficient. At a cost of $84. including the wine, before tax and tip, we will definitely return.
