Fantastic back to old standards. Snappy friendly service early days but will definitely give it a sit down try.

Have visited Gaetano's many times and as one of our favourites have always had good food, however under new ownership we did wonder if it would live up to previous visits. Very glad to say new owners have maintained the quality. Warm friendly staff, excellent food and better house wine than before. The Rissotto I order was excellent, as was... More

Myself and my friends went on a Friday evening. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. I was recommended the vegetable lasagna by a member of staff who seemed genuinely concerned about me enjoying my meal and the meal was lovely! My friends had the carbonara which they also enjoyed. This restaurant is definitely worth checking out!

Wanted to try this restaurant for some time it having been recommended several times by different people. Sadly we had to wait until after the refurbishment had been completed, new management in place and a new menu so all that went before is history and the accolades belong to others. The only positive comment i can make is that the... More

Went for lunch on Mother's Day, son booked it last minute and they managed to fit 9 of us in. The place was very busy but nothing was too much trouble, all meals arrived near enough at the same time, I had Calamari for starters and it was the best I have eaten in years, absolutely to die for, my...

We chose the restaurant for a large party for a leaving do and the staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Though there were 20+ in our party all the food came out virtually at the same time. It is quite a small restaurant so we did take up a large part of it. I would visit... More

New owners. New menu. Choose your pasta and choose your sauce! No thanks. Many old favourites not on the menu, but reading another reviewer they were if you asked! How confusing. Walls painted white so I found the restaurant far too bright, it was like sitting in a toilet! Wine list extortionate. £25 for Pinot Grigio! Really. £29 for Valpolicella!... More

Have been visiting this restaurant for approx 25 years and have always loved it and recommended it to people. But tonight the restaurant was under new management, the staff were very friendly, but the food was bland and Luke warm. One meal was not eaten, but still charged for it.
