A little hidden gem in a strip center. The service was top notch, the food was fantastic. A nice evening out experience. My husband and I needed an escape from the family so we hopped in a cab and went here. Completely different from other Island restaurants. The menu offered a huge variety, the server covered everything. Near the end... More

We have been her a few times in the past couple years and it is one of our favorite places. The food quality is amazing we haven't had anything we didn't love! The bruschetta in my opinion is to die for! This place has a wonderful romantic atmosphere and the staff has always been wonderful! We will be back many... More

WE were hungry...but sensibly looked around....Gabriella's is the way to go if you want a deliciously dark and aged look...not a lot of spoken Italian accents but certainly a TON of Flavor... We had the plainest of the plain Spaghetti with Meatballs and a side of Italian Sausage...the al dente pasta and the sauce were delicious...I want more as I... More

We had a great time at Gabriella's! The calzones were excellent, as was the manicotti, and spaghetti! Not to mention we got the house wine, Casteggio Moscato, which was delicious. Our waiter, Joe, was very polite and gave us excellent recommendations and service. Also, I can't say enough about the dessert.... Just go, you will love it.

On a cold day at the beach, I so wanted a warm bowl of pasta. We arrived and had to wait over an hour (although, they did tell us this when we arrived). Once we were seated, we had to wait at every step of the way. Our server had way too many tables. This place was bustling and packed... More

Take a friend for birthday celebration. Our excellent waiter recommended the oyster rockefeller appetizer with great pilsner beer. Then recommended the veal pasta dish can't remember the name, but we loved it, with the pinot grigio wine. Very good! Then a complimentary desert from the manager Chris!! Thanks Chris she loved the caramel with a scoop of vanilla! Wow. Have... More

We had great service but had a problem with no Miller Lite Beer. Our guest was disappointed that they didn't have his brand of beer. Loved the food however.

Football games were too good to leave for long. Gabrella's was the perfect solution at half time. We had a fantastic shrimp pizza and their standard pepperoni sure beat Domino's. The two pizzas were ready on time. I would order takeout again.

A pretty good experience. Nice, fast service, a diverse menu and impressive wine list. Mains were great American-Italian. I had the classic calzone, the rest had pizza and spaghetti (marinara and simple tomato sauce). My only hesitation is recommending the family-style salad. It was overdressed and way too acidic; diced tomatoes were from the bowl of those that went into... More
