We recently tried Gaetano’s down in Lakeside and it was outstanding! Upon arriving it seemed like we might need a tetanus shot before going inside. Just look at that sign! It was legit Lakeside, that I can tell you. Once inside though I was totally impressed! A modern, clean, comfortable, welcoming and top-shelf environment.
Food was excellent! I had the spaghetti with meat sauce, meatball and sausage. Pasta was al dente; sauce was rich, hearty and flavorful. Bread service was decent. Salad was just mediocre. Jr had the lasagna. It looked very good although I didn’t try it.
In business for over 37 years, Gaetano’s is an east county institution! Definitely worth checking out if you’ve never been.
