Ate here for our anniversary, enjoyed it very much. Service very friendly. Made most of their own pasta for Italian dishes. Busy place, but we were early so no wait. Ate here in April 2016 and was not impressed, gave it another chance and I was glad we did, definitely would come back.

We always buy pizza we like that you can order half and half pizzas so you get two flavors. This pizza is also excellent cold. You also get a salad which is very good.

The restaurant is worth a stop if you're staying on the island. We had the Antonio's Pepperoni Pizza and it was awesome.

The 35 minute wait was worth it. Dessert first, Tiramasu first with a Pinot Noir, the shared two pizzas (Mediterranean and veggies yum!) Garlic bread comes in small slices so everyone gets some. Staff was friendly and attentive. Love this place!

The bread and olive oil is divine. SERVICE was amazing. Caesar Salad and Angel Hair Pasta Pomodoro was excellent. Mom and I went 2 days in a row. Consistency! I loved it.

ordered a veggie pizza. The pizza tasted ok. Came with a salad and "garlic bread" which was basically toast.

Great food and great service. My wife and I ate outside since the weather was great. The food was great with great service. The pizza is the best in town. A must during any visit to South Padre.

I love Italian food, but I really don't like many "Italian food" restaurants. Most are mediocre at best. Gabriella's was different. They had a unique take on an Italian food menu. I ordered Spaghetti Festival and it was incredible (even tho' it didn't even have traditional sauce). Sauteed with olive oil, roma tomatoes, peppers, onions, olives and topped with thinly... More

I try to visit Gabriela's everytime I visit South Padre Island. I had the Osso Bucco with a Parmesan Risotto. I will give it an average rating. My GF ordered Chicken Parmesan with pasta and as usual it was excellent. Overall everything else was spot on.
