First of all, I can’t believe my husband and I had never been to Gaetano’s. It had been voted South Bay’s Best Italian for 4 years straight. We arrived to a full house and then some for sure. It’s located in a strip mall in Torrance, I wouldn’t have guessed this little place was the winner of so many awards but everything seems to surprise me these days.
The atmosphere was very family like, welcoming, and definitely a lot of regulars & families were there. I really wanted to try everything on the menu, which ranged from classic Italian dishes and appetizers to house specialties and believe me, I’ll be back for more once I’m off this restrictive pregnancy diet.
I ordered the Veal Picatta. The meat was tender and cut like butter. The pasta was cooked to al dente & the vegetables were very crisp. I really can’t say more about this dish. It was very tasty for sure. I was eyeing the desserts, but that will have to wait until after I deliver. Maybe they’ll deliver to the hospital?
