The foods is absolutely fenomenal. The Barraza as an entrance is to die for. The wine list is superb. The crowd very Miami style (plastique). But off course you are in Miami, what can you expect. The sooty I is truly spectacular and the deserts are worth the trip alone. Restaurant was packed but service was good.

It is not uncommon when traveling to Miami to be told you must go to Il Gabbiano. The first time we went there was shortly after it opened and it was so great we returned a few days later with some additional friends. For many years we returned regularly and thoroughly enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service. However each time... More

The restaurant is on the Miami river so the scenery was really nice. The place was very busy and happening and there was a great vibe in there. Our waiter (Sebastian) was a star, great service and so friendly. I started with the octopus carpaccio which was perfect; thinly sliced and perfectly seasoned! Then I had the gnocchi pomodoro which... More

Had a very good meal here with a group of business colleagues. Only complaint is that portions sizes are far too big!

Came here with a very large group (always a challenge) and this resto rose to that challenge -- the food was inventive and fresh, the specials interesting and varied and the service warm and attentive. Kudos all around, this one is worth a return visit!

We had a great experience...Great service. We had a plate of prosciutto and salami as the appetizer. Then we had the rack of lamb, which Its was very good. And for pasta, we had Capellini IlGabbiano. Gino the owner was around making sure that everything was fine. We sat outside and had a great view!!!

My husband booked II Gabbiano for my birthday celebration on a Monday night. We were seated outside and it was fine because the views are just beautiful. While we were eating our entrees, it seems that a large party needed a table (about 14 people). There was a round table behind us that sat about 8 but it was not... More

Even though I made a reservation quite in advance, I got a table on an "annex" which is opened when they are fully booked! If you ever go, make sure to indicate that you want to be in the "main" area. A little bit loud in general. Good food and acceptable service. I had better expectations. It seems to be... More

The best Italian meal my husband and I have had outside of Italy. Perfection! Wonderful ambiance, top-drawer service and food to die for! Loved every moment and taste!
