“The best value in Berkeley”

Gypsy's Trattoria Italiano
Ranked #63 of 726 Restaurants in Berkeley
Cuisines: Italian
Restaurant details
Reviewed January 5, 2012

Am I dreaming? An Italian entree, salad, and drink for under $10, including a dollar tip? These guys prepare consistently wonderful Italian entrees...try the Godfather Special, or Gypsy's Special, or Frutti di Mare, or Funghi, or Fettucine Alfredo with chicken and mushrooms, or Capricciosa (vegetarian), or Chicken Marsala, or Chicken Piccata.

The place is usually crowded with students and it is nuthin' fancy. If you just want to enjoy the hectic U.C. Berkeley Southside scene and don't mind the simplicity, you'll have a surprisingly good Italian dinner. There is no better value in Berkeley, except possibly the Stuffed Inn on Berkeley's Northside.

This is a great example of excellent Italian food done cheaply. Tried a number of dishes as did friends and all were given the thumbs up. The flavours are quite authentic and the atmosphere is always buzzing. It's a fun, casual dining experience. Try their calzone...I still dream about it from across the globe!

Gypsy's is awsome. I tried the frutti di mare. It had all kind of sea food with tomato sauce, bread, salad and a drink for less than $10. I will be back to try their other items soon. Yammy

Gypsy's is one of Berkeley's best places for good italian food. Everything there was just awesome, and cheap enough for students to eat. The calzone and pasta in particular are mind blowing. The pizza is nice too. The only negative would be the fact that the place is forever full and shuts earlier than the other restaurants.
