Gabriella's has excellent food along with a great selection of beer and wine. They have thirty or forty different beers on tap and a great wine selection. We also got great service. Our server, Sammy was great. She was friendly, knowledgable, and provided excellent service. We really enjoyed our meal.

This restaurant is one of the few that are on our itinerary every summer when we come down for our week away. The kids usually ask when are we going to the beach and when are we going to Gabriella's? It is a great atmosphere and a delicious meal.

This place always seems to be crowded, and there will usually be a wait, but it is worth it. Prompt, friendly service and excellent food. Most of our table ordered pizza which also comes with bread, garlic dipping sauce for the bread and a family style salad. Delicious and a very great price for the amount of food you get.... More

The pizza we ordered as a take out order was not ready when we went to pick it up. The crust tasted like a tortilla instead of pizza crust. The cheese tasted like imitation cheese. I would try another place.

We had the most wonderful meal at Gabriellas Italina Grill. Our server Robert was very friendly and very attentive. The food was incredible. We ordered the spaghetti and lasagna meals and were very happy with our choices . It is a great place to eat and we would definitely go here again.

I read the great reviews and must concur on the vast majority. The food is great and many of servers and staff are great as well. My sticking point is simple...I'm not paying $3.50 for soft drinks for myself or my children (no, kid's drinks are not included with kid's meals...they are priced as adults). The pizza was great with... More

Marcelo was an amazing bonus to the many menu options! Busy Tuesday night but really friendly and attentive service. We tried lasagna, ravioli, and manicotti and all were superb.
