One of the best Italian food I've tried. Their steak and pasta is to die for coupled by beautiful ambience and good service delivered by a multinational team mostly Filipino. Will go back again.

Gabbiano is a nice enough Italian restaurant. We ordered Quattro Formaggio, Chicken Escalope, Nagro and a bottle of Evian water. SR256. To be honest, for what we expected we were disappointed, we had been told it was fine dining but just didn't make the grade....More

Very nice restaurant. A bit more expensive but you get what you pay for. The gentle music helped create a very nice athmosphere.

I went last Saturday with my family to have lunch. The decoration is nice, family section upper floor either by left or using stairs. Not crowded if you like quite atmosphere. The waiters don't bother you while eating between courses. Good food, I recommend risotto.

Had a lunch at the Il Gabbiano which offers decent Italian food. The meat and chicken meals were of decent size and tasty. The display and general atmosphere was good as well.
