I needed to block off stairs from my dog which had iron rails and no place to secure the simple "baby gate" solution I had envisioned. Frontgate's free-standing mesh pet gate in bronze was perfect for our Tuscan style home. My decorator saw it and is ordering one for herself!
Pros: Quality, Appearance, Durability

can the gate go on the other side (right)

Yes, my husband successfully installed the door backwards by mistake. It puts the fancy details on the other side of the screen, but still looks nice.

How strong is the mesh?

The mesh is pretty thick and sturdy although I imagine any dog that was really determined to scratch its way through might bend it and ruin the finish.

gate latch

is the gate latch easy to operate with your hands full? does it lock top and bottom? And does the latch operate both or do you have to stoop down to unlatch the bottom? Is the gate easy to scoot if the dog tries to push it? Our little Yorkie often moves the gate we have now, so we are looking for a heavier one.
The gate is nice and heavy and our dog hasn't been able to move it, though to be fair, she hasn't tried very hard. It latches only at the top and requires just a finger to slide the bolt out. If you're coming from the other direction, however, you have to reach over the gate. When we come down the stairs, it's a little awkward to bend over and reach the latch. It closes easily behind you.

If a door opening is 48" wide, will this gate be able to adjust to fit?

The description states that the opening is 55" wide, so I am concerned about whether or not it could adjust smaller.
The smallest we were able to adjust it was for 51".

Can this gate be attached to the walls so it does not slide forward or back & is there an extension available?

The gate would be placed above stairs so I want to secure to the walls - does the gate include holes/hardware to attach ends to a wall?
2) Is there any way to make the gate wider?
Sorry, the gate has no way to attach it to walls. I don't know if there's an extension available.

gate depth top vs bottom

what are he depth deminsions of the top of the gate versus the bottom of the gate?
The mesh panels on the side extend back 10 inches and the narrow "foot" that protrudes at the bottom is 8 inches.
