Really had a great visit to Gabriella’s. Sat at the bar and ate a wonderful pizza and bottle of wine. If you are a beer lover, this place has a remarkable selection of domestic and foreign craft beers!

Best margarita/rocks on the island. Bartender Robert knows what he is doing. Very generous portions of food so share if you want. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and great pizza. This is a must if you like Italian food and good drinks.
