A lovely intimate experience. I was pleasantly surprised by the great food and value. The owner was really attentive to us too, and all the tables infact! One of the best meals and evenings out I can remember in a long time! Thank you!

We decided to give the quaint restaurant a try, service was extremely professional, friendly and good. The food was disappointing for me. I ordered linguini marinara - my pasta was drowning in oil and the sea food was frozen Mariana mix - a big disappointment. Yet my husband ordered veal lemone which was good!

After reading various good write-ups about Franco's Gabbiani my wife and I decided to try it.
The starters were absolutely delicious, my wife followed with giant prawns which she found unique and my lamb shank was perhaps the best I ever had. The service is very professional and personalized. To end with we were amazed at the prices: excellent value for money.
