Get there early!!! So worth it!!!

Gabriella's has the best lasagna, in my opinion!!!! My dad loved the fried shrimp and nephew enjoyed the pizza! They open around 4 so if you don't want to wait, get there early! Another option if you don't want to wait for a table, sit outside. They have great apps and desserts too! Delicious... read more

Excellent food, service and good prices for Island. I dined in and had carry out as well. It's a very laid back place, so dress up or go in beach coverups.

Gabriela's is a staple on our must do list! The food is great, ambiance is pleasing and worth the wait you will experience at dinner. Can't lose with Mamas Spaghetti...it was perfect and the meatballs were terrific. Next year again!

No, we didn't have Italian for Breakfast, but the restaurant itself was the best eats we had in South Padre. So maybe we should have? Upon entry, the staff was friendly and the ambiance was Italian and romantic. There was a bit of a wait, but they had a waiting area where drinks were served. We sat outside the restaurant... More

Amazing Chicken Alfredo, Pizza, and cheese sticks! Great atmosphere and the service was excellent! Desserts looked amazing too, but we were too stuffed to try them! If you come to SPI, eat here!

One of my top 2-3 recommendations for viditors to SPI. Always clean, friendly, consistent, and not once has my meal tasted "boxed" or frozen. Staff is typically one of the best-mannered on the island. I've never been a fan of mussels - ew! - but friends once ordered the Mussels Italiano as sn app, and I've been addicted ever since....

The Italian Nachos were amazing. We had a party of 5, and everyone's food portions were more than plenty. Our waiter, Joel, was excellent. He frequented the table and made sure our dining experience was perfect.
