The spaghetti western film genre is noted for its good use of extreme close-ups, its bad use of tomato sauce during gunfights, and its ugly use of Clint Eastwood’s puppetry skills. Get a fistful of western-less spaghetti with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 of Italian fare at Gaetano's Ristorante in Henderson.
Winner of numerous distinctions, including the title of Best Italian Restaurant by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Gaetano's Ristorante serves up the finest in Italian cuisine. Be pro-delicious with antipasti like the prosciutto di Parma con melone ($13.95), which wraps fresh slices of melon in ham imported from Parma, or a helping of brodetto ($14.95), an appetizer that bathes sautéed clams and mussels in a white wine and spicy tomato broth. A raft of main course options — such as the gnocchi con gorgonzola ($17.95), a vegetarian-friendly dish of potato dumplings and creamy gorgonzola sauce—pacifies even the pickiest palates. The ossobucco alla Milanese ($31.95), rocks a braised veal shank to sleep on a pillow of saffron risotto.
Owner Gaetano Palmeri and his family provide customers with the quintessential upscale Italian dining experience. Crisp tablecloths, glowing sconces, and dark wood furnishings make the dining area an elegant backdrop for a romantic evening out with that special person, persons, or houseplant.
