A nice place with a beautiful view, a pleasant decoration and ambience, but , I believe, that the service is rather snobby.When I compare the service of IL GABBIANO and the service of the best Italian restaurants that I have frequented and still frequent, I question, what is the reason that they aren't as nice/respectful and that they insist on...

When my son was beginning his freshman year at U of Miami, we wandered in to this restaurant after a long day's drive in the SUV to deliver him. Fast forward three years and I'm in a meeting in Miami and the group is raving about an Italian restaurant near the hotel. Called my son, suggested we go there, he... More

Expensive YES, delicious YES. No way you're going to strike out. The food is great in every aspect. They serve you a lot of different bites to start at no charge so don't over eat otherwise you will be full for the feast.

Went to II Gabbiano yesterday for dinner. The restaurant was recommended as being one of the best Italian in Miami and and it didn't disappoint. The food was fantastic as was the service. The ambiance and view of the intercostal was also great. Can't fault this place and will definitely be returning.

We had lunch at ILlGabbiano and as usual we loved the service and most of all the food. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We had a house Caesar Salad, which was good and the Lobster Ravioli which was great. For the main course i had the Chicken Scarpariello which was different, chicken and sausage were very tender and... More

We visited here on the last night of our honeymoon. We asked for a table outside and got a beautiful view of the city with boats going in and out of the marina. The food was exceptional and our waiter Marious and his team could not have been more accommodating. Marious was very friendly and polite and explained the long... More

I was invited for a business dinner here three nights ago. What a delight! Stunning views of bay, impeccable service, the best tuna tartar appetizer I have had east of Hawaii, and delicious porcini mushroom ravioli with black truffle. The only problem was eating outside. The heat was stifling but it was worth it. I gather it was very expensive... More

From the decor to the staff attire and presentation, we knew we were going to enjoy ourselves. The service & food along with appetizers & dessert were prepared to an extreme excellence. For those unaware, the staff was in white Tuxes, the meals on the menu were exquisite, and the service was done by a headwaiter and assistants. I must... More

Gorgeous views of bay, delicious food, impeccable service. Eat outside to enjoy the breeze. The only problem was that the waiter convinced us to order a healthy fresh fruit dessert. I felt pressured because I wanted something chocolate but he saved me a lot of calories!
