Wonderful

Was here for my son's birthday tonight. We were swayed right away and Sara greeted us quickly. She listened to our silly requests (kid wants appetizer for breakfast, I like a lot of garlic) and delivered. The fettuccine was amazing, and my boys ate all of their food. Kudos to the chef.

We went to this place because of the high rating. Disappointed from the start. Service was rude and uninformative. We ordered the "seasonal oysters" but turns out seasonal to them meant frozen. All of our oysters were still frozen solid. Sent them back immediately. Then we received our salad which was soggy, and overdressed. I looked around at all the... More

My husband, my daughter and I had dinner at Gabriella's. My daughter made a cryptic remark... something to do with Dr. Who... and the waiter picked up on it immediately. He was very nice to my daughter... and great with us. And the food, although pricey, was really, really good. I was glad we got there early, as there was... More

Dana, our server was fantastic-energetic, very funny, and recommended activities on the island for my husband and I. He will go out of his way to make sure everything is perfect. The salad, bread, and my fettuccini Alfredo were all to die for :) it is a little pricey, but well worth it!

The food here is excellent. The bread and the dipping sauce is outstanding. All of our meals were very good. The calzone was a little greasy. The hous salad is served family style, and it is also very good.

Pizza and beer selection were both very good. Liked the food so well we decided to come back a second night. Pasta dishes were also excellent. My only complaint was the extra charge for butter. I didn't care for the dipping oil the first night so I requested butter for the bread on my 2nd visit. I really thought the... More

Maybe because I grew up in an Italian household and in general find it hard to go out and eat Italian, but the other two in my party agreed it was very mediocre, especially given the prices of the food. "Spicy" wasn't at all spicy, the salad was iceberg lettuce, the bread was dry, and the dishes itself were very... More

Closely located to several popular well know condos and a genuine NY style Italian restaraunt. We had a pizza margherita and loved every last bite. Pleasant background music. Great service

My husband says that he had the best lasagna ever at this location. Servings are generous but not overwhelming which is really nice. Service is excellent and the ambiance is wonderful. A great place.
