Family owned. Recommended by bartender at The Wine Spot. Had a very nice waitress who was very knowledgeable and part of the family. All staff (most) are family and have really cool Italian names. 5 Star!

Stopped in to sample the intriguing menu items - antelope rage, spinach dumplings, an inventive mushroom stack - and enjoyed it. Our meal was minimal because of starters elsewhere but a full meal looked like it would be quite enjoyable. Dishes were all somewhat salty, but not a problem when the sauces were enjoyed with bread! Appears to be one... More

We really wanted to have a good Italian meal, and ate here at the recommendation of our hotel manager. The restaurant was not crowded, but service was extremely slow. In addition, this restaurant sets a record high for rude and insolent service, and a record low for the lack of service. Imagine a server never checking to see if there... More

The food is pretty good. I'm giving this place a 3 because of the service. I had the chicken fettuccine is was great. My husband had the spaghetti with meatballs. Meatballs were ok and the marinara not the best.

Stumbled on this place three years ago with my son. We would always mention this restaurant when talking about Eureka. Three years later I happened to be passing through again this time with my wife. Had the same dish as last time: chicken and mushroom fettuccine. The food is awesome, the atmosphere cozy and the staff friendly yet professional. Highly... More

What a great find. Family owned and run, in the quaint part of Old Town Eureka, we stumbled across Gabriel's on a Tuesday evening. It was not full so we had the pleasure of speaking at length about the menu, the town, the restaurant's history, and the family with our waitress; the daughter of the owners. (She had a unique...

Had lunch and did not want to leave after a relaxing, delicious dish of prawns. This place is an old building in old town that just grows on you after a few minutes. Interesting small bar downstairs with a well versed staff regarding wine, etc. Just overall, a very comfortable place to eat, with low volume jazz and standards (Sinatra)... More

Recommended to us as we had never visited Eureka before. We were not disappointed. This place was packed. We hadn't made a reservation so sat enjoying a cocktail at the bar while a table was set. The pasta was excellent. The wine suggestion was also great. All the staff were friendly & efficient. Loved it! Reserve if you can to... More

For those of you who didn't have a good experience in this restaurant, don't feel bad. I've been here a few times and the difference in service is like night and day. From the same server. First let's start with the food. I think they are overseasoned but some of my fellow diners disagree with me. Then again, they are... More
