Limp lettuce in the salad and soggy noodles in the spaghetti combine to produce a horrible dinner. The waitstaff was friendly and service was good. However, great service does not compensate for the horrible food---we won't go back!

When visiting Oklahoma City - after a quick tour of the OU campus in Norman we decided Italian sounded good for lunch. Searching for a restaurant using my Garmin’s "Points of Interest" feature, we decided to try this place based on the name “Gaberino’s Homestyle Italian” and drove right to it. It’s tucked away in a little strip mall; but don’t let the fact that it is small with a limited number of tables discourage you. (Red checkered table cloths and fresh flowers on each table was a nice touch to the décor, and gave the place the home-style its name promised.)
We ordered the Garlic Cheese Bread as an appetizer along with an item from their summer menu which consisted of cherry tomatoes, mozzarella cheese balls, and basil, skewered on a pick and served with a homemade sweet balsamic vinaigrette.
My husband kept it simple by choosing a “create your own pasta” item consisting of Fettuccine, Alfredo sauce, and adding lemon pepper chicken – which was seasoned to perfection.
I opted for one of Gaberino’s specialties: Chicken Lasagna Florentine. The way all of the flavors were blended had my taste buds going crazy after the first bite. I don’t know if I can recall ever eating something so wonderful.
Even though we were full, we were tempted to try the Italian Cream Cake for dessert. Unfortunately, they had sold the last piece of cake the night before; so we left without dessert. I noticed on their menu that they offer carry-out and catering. I just wish they offered “mail order” because I would pay to have it shipped to me even though I live 350 miles away. It was that good! (The service was excellent too, and prices were reasonable!)
