One of the best restaurants on the island. Good food, good service, we liked it. My husband got the ahi tuna and said it was the best he's ever had.

We ordered the pizza which was very affordable, fresh & delicious. We didn't have to wait very long for a patio table but the patio area was cramped. Service was fine, but we waited for the check after our plates were removed for an extraordinarily long time. I would be pleased to go again.

Unable to get a table as this place was so popular so settled for a couple of excellent draft beers at the bar instead. It is true .... there is excellent beer in the USA. You no longer have to suffer on Budweiser and Coors - just do a bit of research and enjoy. Food looked great by the way... More

My family has been visiting South Padre Island every year since 2004, and every year we have enjoyed a meal out at Gabriella's. It's the best sit down meal on the island by far. Be prepared to wait for an hour or more, but the food is worth it! My favorite dish is the clam pasta dish - delicious. Also... More

We were here for a week and decided to get a pizza delivered, boy was it good! I was surprised to find out the pizza included paper plates, flatware, red pepper, Parmesan cheese, and a large salad, all without asking for it! The price was not much more than Pizza Hut or a similar franchise. The delivery man was right... More

Be prepared to wait for dinner because it is so popular and good. We waited upstairs in the bar and had appetizers and wine which were very average He main meal was far better. The shrimp and tuna couldn't have been better and the servings were large. The place was very kid friendly

We went on a Saturday night and it was packed!! The Brick oven pizza was perfect!! Everything on the menu sounded delicious but we had our taste buds set on pizza:) The salad was a little soggy but it's not changing our opinion of the restaurant. The Bellinis were very refreshing:) Looking forward to returning in the future to try... More
