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.

Writing a review is a bit of a rarity for me but this place deserves praise - and then a little more praise! It is the real deal! It is situated in the village and even before you enter the place there is a buzz...More

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!!!!

Place was cozy and jazzy, good music and atmosphere. Both the food and service was OK. Maybe a bit too expensive compared to the quality.

We needed a place for a pre-theater dinner in the West Village of NYC. It was by happenstance that we stopped at Gaetana's; it was along the walking route from where we parked to the theater that was our destination. We entered with a bit...More

A friend suggested we eat here before a play at the IRT Theatre, an experimental theatre diagonally across from Gaetana's. At 5 pm the place was mostly empty, and we had great service. It's got a lot of atmosphere and lots of dark wood. The...More

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
