Good pizza, reasonable delivery, fair price. Burnie and Bettys would give them a run for their money for thin pizza but they don't answer their phone.

Decided to check out Gabatoni's since it received the best pizza award from a local news publication. Visited on a Wednesday night and the place was pretty full. Luckily it was just my wife and I so we were able to be seated right away in a table in the bar area. We ordered the EBA and I would have... More

The first time we went the place was very busy but we were seated quickly. We were served in a timely fashion and our pizza was great. We went again , everything was about the same but this time our pizza was not as good as the first time we went. It's a little hard to figure it out. I... More

After moving away from Springfield, whenever I'm back in town this place is a must! So good I couldn't stop eating it! Excellent thin crispy crust pizza. To die for!

If you want to talk to your friends, don't dine on a Friday night. At 7 pm the place was mobbed with large families with children and extremely noisy. In spite of that, the service was excellent (Victor) and the food pretty good - we had veggie pizza and salads and beer/wine. I hear it is quieter later in the... More

Went here tonight without a reservation. Was told it would be 30 min, more like an hour. Finally got a table in the bar, two tables put together to seat 7. Very cramped. Waitress was running around focused on other tables, not overly concerned about ours. Pizza was good, but didn't make up for the horrible customer service.

After my July 9th, 2011 Bernie and Betty’s Pizza atrocious experience (read my July 9th 2011 review); Gabatoni’s is the place to go for great tasting pizza and good service. The atmosphere needs to be updated as fake wood paneling went out in the 70’s. Look past the out-dated décor and enjoy Springfield finest pizza. They have a pizza named... More

Some of the best pizza and ravs (in my opinion) that Springfield has to offer, the price brings my review down to 4 stars since it has been increasing more than other pizza joints over the years, but the recent remodel and consistent food makes this a decent stop on any trip.

The food is excellent. My most recent visit included nacho appetizer and a 7 topping pizza at a fair price... Dinner for 3 for $28. Why I love the food??? Because it is home made deliciousness. There is that something special about a mom and pop restaurant that doesn't resort to cheap quick ingredients. However, while I was there the... More
