Don't understand the good reviews on this place. We ordered the special Meatloaf it was the worst by far. No Meat just lots of breadcrumbs mashed potatoes must have been from another day plus a batch from that day because parts were just undercooked and raw potatoes.

Gatto's is one of our go-to places in the local area. Service is usually good, the food is better-than-average Italian food and the menu has some variety.

Had dinner with friends everything was really good! Had an item that was not even on the menu, service was good. Wanted to order a special dessert but they where out of it that night! Was there with a friend that has been there many times, we ordered what she recommended and we were not disappointed!

Healthy servings and friendly wait staff. Not Italy but really good to have in the area. I would recommend you check it out.

Gattos has very good service. From the moment you arrive, everyone is welcoming. The staff is very attentive throughout your meal. The food is good and reasonably priced. They make the best pomegranate martinis.

The food is very good. The porcini ravioli is cooked to the tooth. The bruschetta is fresh. The chocolate cake is a good dark chocolate and not sweet.

Great family place to eat. The service has always been fast and servers are very friendly. Not too pricey and I believe you get a good value for the money.

I have eaten at both locations and have enjoyed them both. I usually order the specials because I like to try different things. I have enjoyed them all.

They are very flexible with their menu, you change out menu items. They have a very good garbage salad. My husband loves the mussels dish.
