I selected Gaspare's from the map on Open Table as a place to stop for dinner on the way to AC. When we arrived and found it was a pizza parlor in a strip mall, my date was somewhat uneasy. Fear not, for inside is a nicely appointed, cozy dining room with a menu that should be the envy of trattorias and osterias. The selection included the traditional pasta and simple dishes along with a three course deal that had some really unique items. Butternut squash ravioli was prepared perfectly and presented beautifully. My chicken parmesan was huge and delicious. The homemade italian dressing was heavenly. Service was outstanding!

We found Gaspare's on the Open Table App, had not heard anything about it before. Food was made fresh and very good, service was great and the price was decent if a bit high for the location. Only comment is that the place is very small inside so you are sharing your meal/conversation with everyone else in the restaurant. We were there with three other tables, one was very quiet, the one next to us spent half the time figuring out how to split the check and the last one was a group of friends that had not seen each other in a long time so they were noisy.
Good food, great service, but can be noisy

This understated restaurant has some of the best Italian food around...including Philly.
Also, the service is very good and attentive. They also help guide you through the many choices.
I had a seafood and pasta dish that was very fresh and hot. Great scallops, calamari, and shrimp.
My wife had a pasta dish with goat cheese.
Very good too.
Homemade Italian food with special care given into every dish. Quaint and close atmosphere and, good happy hour specials. Weekends get busy so hurry in before the dinner rush. One of my favorite places to eat.
This place is our home away from home! We have been dine-in as well as take-out customers for 15 years!! They NEVER disappoint! Even had my son's graduation party catered by them and everyone raved about the food!! A must- do if in the vicinity!! Our faves are the white pizza and Italian subs for take out but we have also experienced many great gourmet meals in their intimate dining room over the years!
Great Burger! I order all the time from you and it was the first time that I had one. It was cooked perfectly
Friends invited us to meet them for dinner at Gaspare's. What a wonderful surprise finding this marvelous little restaurant, in an out of the way strip mall. The room is small and intimate but alive with activity and joy. The staff were extremely friendly, professional and attentive to all our needs. The eggplant rollatini, chicken Caesar salad, Parmesan crusted grouper and penne with oil and garlic were expertly prepared for our dining pleasure. The home made cannoli for dessert was one of the finest I've ever tasted. The prices are moderate and a bargain for the quality and portion size of each item. This place is wonderful and should not be missed.
