You Gae's should go to Gaetano's!

A quick trip to Gaetano's Deli in Stratford


Acorns were good until bread was found." Francis Bacon

This Tuesday my Dad and I traveled to Gaetano's Deli on 1886 Main Street Stratford, CT, 06615 (Tel: 203-377-8869) to pick up some huge Italian sandwiches.

Gaetano's obtains its warm, pillowy breads from Arthur Avenue's Addeo's Bakery every morning!!!! When we arrived we noticed the large amounts of salami and aging cheeses hanging from the ceiling.

The place smelled like freshly sliced salami and garlicky, juicy roasted peppers. My dad ordered the Kovac's Special Sandwich (a tender, succulent chicken cutlet with smooth fresh mozzarella, tangy roasted peppers with a good char to them, and juicy broccoli rabe spread over the top).

I ordered the John Wayne without the fried eggplant. The John Wayne was paper-thin, savory prosciutto, awesome juice filled roasted peppers, creamy refreshing mozzarella doused in silky olive oil, and tangy balsamic vinegar.

The sandwiches were fantastic and the soft, hot breads made them even more delicious. In addition to that we ordered a piping hot fried rice ball. The rice ball was crispy on the outside and oozing of fresh mozzarella on the inside. It also had fantastic peas and crumbly, spicy sausage mixed in.

The food was very good and the Deli looked very authentic. I would definitely go back for a humongous Italian sub. I would rate it ZZZV= 3 1/2 Z's= Good!

I live close to Gaetano's, I'm not a weekly visitor but I try to go there once a month a least. There stuffed breads are awesome and they make there own mozz, what i like best about Gaetano's is whenever i walk in they remember me, being a small business owner myself i believe this is a great quality, they treat me like I'm there every day. Also the food is fantastic.

I live in Fairfield, so I frequent A&S Deli, but Gaetanos is the real deal too! I love that place! The John Wayne with eggplant is my favorite! The staff is fantastic and the food is consistent and yummy.
