I went here as my first dinner when vacationing on South padre island and it set the standard for all other meals this week....i was thoroughly impressed by the freshness of the food... Robert is a primo server...we're here for 5 days and I'm definitely coming back before I leave the island. Great job Robert! Great job Gabriella's! Ciao!

Everything we had at Gabriella's was excellent, and waiter Juan's service was superb. The fresh bread was accompanied by wonderfully seasoned balsamic, the salad was fresh and perfectly dressed and the pizza authentic. I had the Osso Buco special which came with an incredibly tasty sauce and perfect risotto. The meat was just a bit tough for my taste but... More

My hubby and enjoyed the early bird special. The minestrone soup was the best I have had anywhere. The grilled tuna was superb. My husband's spaghetti and meatballs was the best. Caneloni for dessert was great. We will be back.

Okay, that said, the lasagna sauce was really good, but with all the cheese, it was difficult to find the noodles. The bread was too doughy for me. Service was slow, but cordial. Would have appreciated more attention, as I would have liked to order some garlic bread and a glass of wine. Waiter came back to the table too... More

My wife and I decided to give Gabriella's a try after a very pleasant afternoon boat ride around the bay and dolphin watching. We were very pleased with our visit!

I read the review here and arrived at South Padre Island and went there without even going to the hotel. The choice was very good! The pizzas are great! We got the Margherita and the Pepperoni. We all loved it so much that we came back the following day!
