I had the classic calazone and enjoyed it. It's a nice ambiance and a nice break from the "party" style of restaurant seating.

One of you favorite places on the island. The selection and the ambience are fabulous. Enjoyed oysters Rockefeller, tomato bisque, minestrone, and fillo shrimp with mango chutney. A real treat accompanied by an extensive selection of wine and beer to satisfy everybody's taste. Alfresco dining is also a highly praised option during the colder months.

We were very disappointed by our dinner at Gabriella's tonight. Our server, Luke, brought salads and bread to our table before we ordered. His demeanor was very casual and off putting. He kept calling us guys throughout our dinner. We are 60 something women. The salads were bland and overdressed. We both had spaghetti and meatballs which was mediocre at... More

We have dined at Gabriella's when holidaying on S.P.I. in the past and always found it to be a choice place to dine. The food is Italian style as the name would suggest and they know how to prepare and serve any dish you order. This latest visit with friends found us ordering pizza. It is baked in a wood... More

Always a good meal. The lasagna's red sauce is a bit sweet for my taste, but still very tasty. Great wines & craft beers. When crowded, sit at the bar & get equally good wait service from the bartender.

Our server James did an excellent job - great service. The food was good. The family style salad was good and there was plenty for the four of us. The Italian dishes that the other three in our group ordered were good. I ordered the toasted ravioli, which was OK. The marinara sauce was very good but the toasted ravioli... More
