When we visited the restaurant the night was in full swing and the restaurant was packed. We ordered a few Peroni’s and soon a medley of appetizers arrived at our table withing minuites.
We started with an order of Arrancini(fried risotto balls) coated in a delicious homemade marinara sauce. These mouthwatering morsels were cooked to perfection and were the perfect starter. Next we had the Pear & Gorgonzola mixed green salad with sweet and tangy dressing. The portion was large and the salad was a nice contrast to the Arrancini.
Our entrees were two seasonal selections and both were perfect compliments to the cold winters night. We were served a healthy portion of Butternut Squash Ravioli in a creamy butter basil sauce and a bowl of Chianti braised Short-rib on a bed of pasta. Both dishes were complimentary of one another and showcase the diversity of the cuisine at Gaetano’s.
We wrapped up the evening with one of Gaetano’s signature Italian Canolli’s. A nice balance of flavors and textures from the creamy filling, nuts, chocolate chips and cookie like shell.
The next time you get the craving for Italian food coupled with the comforts of a family run cozy atmosphere visit Gaetano’s in Torrance.
