The nice dining terrace was what drew us to the restaurant. The sardine pie served for appetizer was tasty. I ordered the shrimp and onion risotto which had two pieces of shrimp cut into smaller pieces. The serving was huge but it tasted a little bland. My partner has the tuna steak with potatoes which was okay. We had the... More

I have to say that the food at this restaurant was the best food we have ever had. To add to that the service was impeccable. The staff helped explain the various choices and made us feel very welcome. The chef even came out at the end of our meal to say hello! If you are looking for a high... More

I went there twice with my extended family and on both times I received a worm welcome and an impeccable service! The food is simply delicious, the highest standards, some might find it a bit overpriced but trust me if I tell you that it's worth every penny. I'd definitely visit again!

We were recommend this restaurant by a local but we probably speak the wrong language (English, Swedish, German, French) because we felt totally misunderstood. The kids meat didn't include any spices as didn't the French fries. The meat was too raw to be medium cooked and it was very tough, musicians that didn't belong to the restaurant came playing and...

Food was delicious, Massimo was very friendly, the place has a nice atmosphere with good music. The small restaurant is in the old part of the town. We had much fun with Massimo and enjoyed our food. We can really recommend it, best place of the town.

Fresh ingredients treated with simplicity and skillful intelligence, that's what we found. Antipasti are all great, so the "degustazione" is definitely a must. The "paccheri" with fish sauce also were very good. If I must find a flaw, it was the cakes: they could not match the meal. But Gaeta Vecchia is so nice, that you'd better have a gelato... More
