“One of the Best Italian Restaurants in Jeddah”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

This is one of the best Italian restaurants in Jeddah , it has very nice location with sea view.
The food is Excellent , they make Great Pasta and Pizza.
The service is very good but could be better... I don't like the decoration , its very basic and classical..Chairs are not comfortable.. Otherwise I would have given it full mark.
Wearing short is not allowed , at least this what they wrote at the entrance..
This doesn't look professional , they can simply tell the person wearing a short that it is not allowed before he gets in , but writing a Banner at the entrance doesn't look nice.
In brief , this is a very good restaurant and with some upgrade it can easily becomes the no.1 in Jeddah.

“Excellent food, needs re-decoration !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We had a seat on the second floor in the family section, near a window. The view is nice since it's on the Corniche. Service was very friendly and you have a wide variety of food to chose from the menu. Their Pizza is really good and my friend had the veal which was also great ! Food wise, you will not be dissapointed. The place needs to be re-decorated and the ambiance makes you feel like you're in the 80s. Other than that, I would definitely recommend you try Al-Gabbiano !
