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

Great italian home-made food and it's open late! The place could be teicky to find but definitely a must-try if you are in the area.

I had not been here in years and we went with friends and were delighted by the experience. We'll be back much sooner. We used to always order the pizza. This time, we got pasta and it was so delicious. The garlic bread is amazing. Service was prompt and didn't seem to like that we were lingering over our food,... More

This our second trip to Gabatoni's Restaurant and once again, it did not disappoint. The staff is friendly and efficient and the pizza is just the way I like it. We had the EBA (Everything But Anchovies) which is actually the first 7 items on the list of things to add. It was great! They do serve other items besides... 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.
