My wife and I tried this place on our honeymoon and we had the best Italian food and service. You have to try the Italian wedding cake! Ask for Angelo. Anytime we needed service it was like he read our minds. He was so polite and friendly that he made the visit even better.

Overall, great food, romantic atmosphere, and the best service!

This place was unexpectedly awesome! I enjoyed the food, the wine, and the cute waitstaff :)
Robert was very professional and David was so nice! The pizza was soooo good. The osso bucco was way too fatty, but we were able to send back. They have an awesome wine and beer selection. I wasn't a big fan of Spinach Dip, but oysters were great. We will be back next time we are in So. Padre!

Unaware of the opening time we waited outside until the 4:00 pm opening. The first thing we saw was a yellow jeep type pull up next to the access steps. Out came two people who entered and were employees. At one minute to 4:00 we along with others waiting started to enter but were stopped as they were moving a piece of furniture and some boxes to the upstairs. We were told they were not ready for customers and it would be awhile. A few minutes passed and they were still not ready but we could sit at the bar. That was okay, but even near 4:30 they were sweeping the floor. When we were finally allowed to sit at the table we requested the waiter, Art, was a delight. So polite, and attentive. The food was great as we have experienced the other times we were there. However, not one, not two, not three, but four young girls were at the entrance chatting. A rather intimidating entrance for customers entering and leaving. If the opening is 4:00 why are the young people not prepared for customers? One of the "hostesses". Was rude and loved authority she assumed. It will be an even longer time until we patronize this place again which is unfortunate as we did enjoy the food. We had been warned by another and now we had the first hand experience.

We had dinner at Gabriella’s in June. The food was good, but nothing special. But deserts… OMG. They were very, very good, the best actually. I especially recommend to try their banana split thing. The service was rather friendly, the food was a bit on the expensive side, and the place was clean.

Outside appearance is deceiving. Inside is a wonderful dining experience with great service, ambiance, menu and a reasonable price. Our first time there but not our last.
