Italian | Forest Park, Near West

Love, love Gaetano's. So much so that we are going back in two weeks. That will make 3x in 6 weeks! It's a good thing as there are so many dishes that we want to try. Food is awesome! :-) Try anything with mushrooms, scallops, pasta. Heck even the salads are special and beautiful. Gaetano himself is a real presence in the dining room. The entire staff is thoughtful, accommodating and don't take themselves too seriously. The place is warm and perfect year round. More
