Perfecto - Italian Cuisine

Enjoyed my first visit to Il Gabbiano and definitely not my last. Located in Downtown Miami and overlooking Biscayne Bay - this is a top notch Italian restaurant. I had the Osso bucco with Risotto and was impressed with the presentation and taste. Service is attentive and our waiter provided an... read more

What a view! What great Service! The best Italian and seafood in Miami. Also love all the nibbles they give you in the beginning the parmesan and balsamic is terrific

My wife and wife and I visited Gabbiano for our last day at miami. The food was delicious and we were attended as the royalty. We were attended by at least 3 waiters who were always checking up on us. The fettuccine alfredo was creamy and delicious,I cant wait to go back.

Four of us went for our anniversary celebrations. Had to send back 2 langastino dinner specials ($75 each) because they were so salty- and inedible. The replacement dinners were less salty but The risotto was full of butter cheese and grease. The gnotti was overlooked and mushy. The 4th dinner came out when the rest of us were almost done...

Located waterfront overlooking Biscayne Bay/Port of Miami, the view is lovely and worth sitting outside weather permitting. Super attentive service and knowledgeable waiters present the day's special which are so numerous its almost why bother with the menu? Food is excellent but pricey as are the wines. Great for a special occasion or a business event.

This is by far, the best italian restaurant in miami. The owners cook table side and are on too if the restaurant all day long. Owner operated with best ingredients and more than fifty years building up places such as il mulino rosso in ny. All dishes are best. My favorites are ossobucco or branzino. Ambiance, service, and location are... More
