Nice enough dining room, and when dinner eventually arrived at the table it was good, but service was awful. Waiter was pleasant, when we could get his attention - but he didn’t take our drink order until 25 min after we sat down, and our...More

Great food and reasonable prices. The staff is attentive and the food a cross between old fashioned Italian American and more current options. Never had a bad meal here.

Every time I come to NYC I have my friends meet me at Gaetana's. Located in the cozy West Village, the restaurant is even cozier. They always remember me and always thank me for coming again. The food is amazing. Consistent. I love it :-)

Probably the best service I have ever had in a restaurant. Frankie (the owner) and our waiter were both very attentive, and accommodating. The food was delicious and the service was second to none. Would highly recommend this lovely spot!!!!

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
