Delicious tapas style restaurant with the best wine list of any of the restaurants in the area. Lovely views of the lake, bright and airy decor with excellent and knowledgeable servers. I wouldn't recommend the pizzas (they were too dry for my liking), but the other options were delicious. I especially liked the arancini, meatballs, calamari. I do wish they had a slightly more expansive tapas menu (as opposed to just a wide range of crostini/pizza).

we went in for the buy one get one free pizza night and they were great. Small plates are fun to share and give an opportunity to try more than one thing.

A new favorite stop for us after a long day working outdoors. Small plates ideal for sharing. Loved the selections, many of which made us feel as if we were back in Spain. Small, intimate setting, with great lighting and a friendly professional staff. Excellent service, dishes appear almost instantly but there's no sense of being rushed. Hint, if you're not into beer and wine (large selection) check out the desserts and order a root beer float, then enjoy pouring your own bottle of Saranac Root Beer into a frosty mug full of Gannon's hard vanilla ice cream. An ice cream float made just the way you like it. Add the view of the jewel of the Finger Lakes, Skaneateles, and you'll have that "vacation" buzz in a matter of minutes. Enjoy!

On a nice Saturday afternoon my wife and I stopped at Gilda's for lunch. You almost get the feeling of a small New York City neighborhood restaurant. We had the Catalina and the Arugula salads which were very good. We then shared the wild mushroom pizza which was very tasty on a very thin light and crusty dough. From my understanding most of the items are small plates which I think is nice and the menu has some interesting items. Overall great atmosphere, comfortable setting and good food.

Gilda's is a small restaurant that at first glance seemed to be mainly a pizza place. What a great surprise to find not only excellent pizza but delightful small plates that were prepared with care and skill. The roasted brussels sprouts were the best we have tasted.
The restaurant is pleasantly cozy and bright. The staff is terrific--friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. They know how to make guesst feel at home. The beer selection was outstanding.
Gild'as has become one of our measuring sticks for really good food.
They do not take reservations; we waited for about 25 minutes--honestly, we are so glad we did!!!
