Arrived at 6:58 already crowded! Waited 5 min for table. Not a problem... Server was personable. Service was good but due to the crowed not great. We had bruschetta for an app. Good but became great when we added bread dipping sauce to the top! House salad was plentiful and well dressed. Food arrived in a timely manner after app.... More

I had chicken parm and he had well I don't remember what he had, he doesn't share! Well I had to send my chicken back it was too salty to eat. Bottle corking fee is outrageous for this laid back family filled place. All in all it's a good find.

We visited Gabriella's 9/16 as a date night while on our honeymoon. Joe was our server. He's fantastic! Very polite! He knew the menu through and through and even suggested certain dishes that he enjoyed! We loved the Rockefeller oysters, shrimp scampi, and lasagna! The portions are HUGE. I would definitely suggest visiting!

Great atmosphere, busy as heck at 6:30p this evening, visited 0n 6/10/14. Our second visit in as many years. The mussels were really excellent as was the Leonardo 'd Veggi pizza. Put it on your list, but go early or go late or prepare to wait, but hey, that's the SPI lifestyle and why bars were invented!

We spent 5 days in South Padre and visited Gabriella's 3 times! The food is wonderful, and the portions are very generous. We absolutely loved the bruschetta!!! One night we ate a light supper elsewhere, so we could go back to enjoy the decadent desserts at Gabriella's. The wait staff are great. On our last night, we ate outside and... More

The food was excellent, and you get very generous portions. I had the pasta a la tonno, and after working on it for a good half hour my plate still looked full! I didn't care much for the fried ravioli appetizer but that's just personal preference. Be prepared to pay at least $15-$25 per plate. We went in the evening... More

We always grab a pizza from Gabriella's...made in a brick oven...Luv the Soprano ...flavor is great, very cheesy...sometimes a little too much garlic but still worth the trip. Prices are good, u get a large pizza with salad and garlic bread for under $20. They will deliver if your order is more than $20.

Long wait for the dining room so we sat outside. We ordered Italian nachos and fried asperigous. Both were excellent. Took a while to get our food after ordering. In the mean time the mosquitos were eating us alive. We couldn't take it anymore and got our food to go. Overall good service, long wait and higher prices for the... More
