I found the price a little high here. There service was great and the food was good but not best Italian food I've had. The salad that comes before your meal was just lettuce and tomatoes tossed in dressing and the lettuce wasn't crisp. This place won't be my first choice when I come back to padre.

Absolutely all around outstanding experience. Great service and food. Surprised this level of service found on the island. Waiters Joel and Richard gave outstanding personal care. Manager Tim as well.

My husband and I went with a group of people for dinner. I have lots of food allergies and was a little nervous that I wouldn't find anything I could have. I ordered the tuna, no sauce and grilled asparagus. It was awesome! My husband ordered a pizza and also looked it. Everyone in our party really enjoyed their meals!

We are having a 20-year birthday reunion on Padre. What a wonderful way to celebrate! Dana, our waiter, was amazing. The food was awesome, decor so comfortable and inviting. We had a lovely time and will definitely go again. Their desserts are to die for. Don't miss a chance to go to Gabriella's. Susie

Just returned from dinner and can only say that if you come to South Padre Island and don't eat at this restaurant you are really missing something special. The complexity of the tastes in your mouth sends you instantly to Nirvana! Sampled each of the dishes my fellow diners order and can truly say that any choice from the menu... More

There were 3 of us, I was going to have bread bowl soup and salad, another ordered a pizza, and 3rd ordered pasta nachos. The soup, salad and pizza were very good but this was the first time I ever had pasta nachos and they were the real treat! All portions were so large we could have skipped the soup... More

I recently spent several days in SPI and I was excited to eat at this restaurant after reading so many positive reviews. Unfortunately I did not have the same experience as those reviewers did. I ordered wine, an appetizer, and an entree. The fried zucchini appetizer was unsalted and flavorless. The chopped salad was SWIMMING in dressing (and I like... More

We weren't expecting this nice of an Italian restaurant. Great décor on the inside, and excellent food quality. The pizza comes with a free salad, breadsticks, and cheese plate.
