I have to say both myself and my wife thouroughly enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere in il gabbiano, the pitzas are ti die for , so are the pasta dishes, but remember this is an italian resterant so go for the italian food and fish and you will be amazed at the tase ! our larger than life host always made us feel very welcome and the staff were pleasant and attentive. Watch out big guy w`ell be back !

“bad service and a awful attitude to customers who complain”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2011

just come back from Lassi after being there for a week. On our last night we decided as it was late to have a light meal or snack, and as all our friends were across the road in a bar we decided to pop in to IL GABBIANO. Soon as we went up the steps we felt this was not going to be good....just the attitude of the staff......miserable and could not care less comes to mind. My wife ordered stuffed vine leaves(the only stuffing being rice),i ordered the pizza,and my other two friends just wanted a.........prawn cocktail(ok i know they are on holiday) They were offered the choice of large or small they chose small and the price being 6euros which we all thought a bit expensive. When it did arrive on the table, it was the smallest prawn cocktail we have ever seen presented either in england or anywhere else we have holidayed in the world......it was the size of a old babycham glass,full to the brim with only lettuce and topped with 4 of the smallest prawns you could find...and one still had the dirty bits in it. the stuffed vine leaves were no better...arrived on a plate dripping in oil, soggy and not looking very nice at all...my wife tried to eat one but was disgusted by it and so were friends. I must say that my pizza was excellent and no complaint about it at all. Not once did anybody come over to us and ask if everything was ok. When someone did come over to see us and we told them we were not happy with the meal, the attitude was well we told you it was small Prawn cocktail, oh and we gave you a extra stuffed vine leave(which was unedible). They were not bothered with trying to give any sort of customer service.....all they wanted now was for us to get out. We asked for the bill, when it did arrive it was wrong....all the other tables were given complimentory drinks. when we asked for ours we were told we were not special enough. We were with a group of about 80 plus people on the soul week which was being held across the road in Trentis bar. Let me just say we will be back in the resort next year and IL GABBIANO will be one to avoid.

“Not good”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2011 via mobile

This was the only bad restaurant we ate in all holiday. The food was greasy and luke warm. My husband had the kefalonia meat pie, which had obviously been microwaved, and spent the majority of the night being very sick, luckily it didn't affect the rest of the holiday. The staff were ok, although we came across much friendlier people elsewhere. I would say avoid this restaurant, there are much better in lassi and argostoli. Retseto in particular stood out for us.
