We had dinner at Gabriella’s in June. The food was good, but nothing special. But deserts… OMG. They were very, very good, the best actually. I especially recommend to try their banana split thing. The service was rather friendly, the food was a bit on the expensive side, and the place was clean.

Outside appearance is deceiving. Inside is a wonderful dining experience with great service, ambiance, menu and a reasonable price. Our first time there but not our last.

We had the pizza, the calzone, and the chicken Alfredo. The first 2 were big enough to split between two people (which they allow), They will also do the pizza half and half, allowing you to combine two different types or flavors on the same pizza.
Go early as they fill up fast. Little pricey, but worth it. Went there twice on our trip and loved it.
They should be #1 in my opinion.

The staff at Gabriella's are excellent and accommodating. They are obviously harried because the restaurant is always busy. The biggest disappointment here is the food. We've eaten here four times and feel everything we've tried has been overly spicy-hot. Garlic is used profusely on everything - even the fries have garlic salt on them. The calzone is far from authentic, dry and stuffed with chopped beef and seasonings. The pizza is decent, but comes with too much topping (even plain Margherita pizza). Good wine, but beer has been served "flat" more than once. This is average South Texas fare. You will love this place if quantity over quality is your thing. Sorry to give such a negative review since so many people seem to love this place, but this has been our experience.

The wife wanted to go there ASAP after reading reviews about the pizza and lasagne. Once we looked at the menu and the prices, wow, we shared a couple of pizzas and that was our only trip for the week there.
The BBQ pizza was really good. The kids loved the cheese pizza. I really wanted the lasagne, but I think it was $16. Are you serious? Must be really proud!
There is another place just down the road, just as good on the pizza.
BTW, go very early because it gets packed!
