Great deal for great food!

We went to Gabatoni's for the first time last weekend. There were 30 of us there for my Dad's 82nd birthday. The wait staff were very accommodating and had tables set up for us since we had called ahead. They were attentive and polite during our meal, and even got us plates for the birthday cake... read more

Gabatoni's has the best pizza in Springfield. It is the thin crust St.Louis style and no other place comes close. Of course, that's my personal preference. It may be a little more expensive than other pizza restaurants but it's sure worth it!

Your pizza is specially prepared with old family recipes. The triple meat pizzas are incredible . You will love the atmosphere and polite wait staff.

I recently read that Gabatoni's is one of the top eleven pizza places in Illinois. That's doing something with all of the pizza places in Chicago alone. I've eaten a lot of Gabatoni's pizzas in my life, but the EBA pizza that I ate last Sunday was really special. It's a loaded pizza with everything but anchovies. I've never been... More

Lively place. Staff seat quickly and know the menu inside and out. Many different choices for pizza. High quality food!! Prices are reasonable. A bit hard to find, but very well worth the search. I totally recommend.

Ordered spaghetti, it was a pile of noodles sitting in a bowl of water. It was dark in there and a little chilly. Just not my cup of tea.

Gabatoni's has been serving Springfield residents some of the finest pizza for generations of locals. I grew up on this pizza and whenever we have friends or family that come back to Springfield to visit, Gabi's is on the top of the list as a must do.

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
