Went here based on it being #2 on the Island. I am a bit more critical of Italian food and this place was a big hit or miss experience. We had the Calamari and the Zucchini appetizers, couldn't decide on just one--wish we had. The calamari came out tough as tires and we sent it back. 2nd round was a little more tender but had no flavor whatsoever. We didn't eat half of it, but waiter was good and realized it, took it off without my even asking---so Service wise all was good--we ate at the bar as it was very crowded. The zucchini was great however, very tender and cooked just right. We split an Eggplant Parmesan entree, they had it though was not listed on the menu. Eggplants were huge and was expecting them to be bitter, but were very well cooked and melted in the mouth. Their sauce however is a bit on the sweet side. Good flavor but too much sugar in it for my taste. Overall we enjoyed the meal, but confused how you get old calamari on the coast?

It's all homemade, pretty fair price, really good and super cute and clean inside! They're open till 11, and it's good atmosphere! They is usually a long wait but it's worth it and you can go upstairs and order drinks and apps!!! Don't be a jerk, tip 20%.

For our trip to South Padre Island, our oldest daughter did extensive research to find places to eat. We had not traveled to South Padre in a number of years so we were not familiar with what would be suitable for dinner. She suggested Gabriella's. It was an EXCELLENT choice! We ordered 2 pizzas for our family which consists of 3 teenagers and mom and dad. We ordered the Sicilian and a 1/2 pepperoni and 1/2 leaning tower of cheeza pizza. This was BY FAR some of the BEST pizza we have EVER had! HIGHLY recommend making a trip here to anyone looking for some GREAT food in South Padre!
