    We were pleasantly surprised. Very good old school service and food. As a CT Italian I prefer a simple scampi or Zuppa, often you end up with fusion. We will definitely go back.

    Second time at Gavi, both times the food was delicious. During my first visit, the waiter made a minor calculation error on the bill. I didn't think anything of it. I brought it to the waiter's attention and he amended the bill. At my most recent visit, the waiter over-charged me by $10. I pointed it out and he immediately grabbed the bill out of my hand and said he would fix it. His actions were of a person who knew that the mistake was on the bill - he didn't question my raising the issue. I do not know if the waiter is bad at math or was hoping I wouldn't catch the error, but two billing errors in two separate visits by the same waiter??? Not sure what to make of this.....All I can say is double-check the bill when dining at Gavi.

    Despite the negative reviews on yelp we found the service and the food to be quite good. We had eaten here several years ago( that should account for something it's been around a while) but didn't remember and I guess it didn't blow us away!!! The swordfish was very good, the mussels as well!!!

    With a party for 5 we were all delighted with Gavi. The menu definitely offered something for everybody and was priced appropriately for a nice restaurant. I started with the Spinach salad with raisins, walnuts and apples which was dressed lightly and delicious. My main course was a swordfish which was cooked to perfection and delicious. Our waiter was a little difficult to understand at times, but very knowledgeable and on his game. We met people here as a half way point and will plan to do this again as it was an enjoyable meal in a great environment.

    Repeat customers. Have dined at Gavi 6 or 7 times and never been disappointed. Carbonara is great along with the regular menu items I have tried and specials are not to be missed either. It's a hidden gem!

  • Salmon disastrous
    Carole
    Dined on 8/28/2014
    Despite excellent appetizers ( fried calamari, eggplant rollatini and mussels) the severely over cooked, dry salmon sitting on a few raw spinach leaves next to three reheated dry pieces of potato made this a place to not eat again. Lovely tiramasu tart for dessert but although I notified them at the time of reservation that we would be celebrating my motherinlaws birthday, the candle I requested was missing. Coffee and dessert was expensive and cancelled out the bargain $15 prix fix menu. I cannot imagine how this salmon was ever served and as the waiter never inquired as to our satisfaction, we just suffered through it.

    A little pricey for Italian food. We come from Northern New Jersey were good Italian food is plentiful and about 25% lower in price overall. Chef is trying and comes close on most things. I thought the sauce on my clams and pasta special was very tasty, but it was also a bit gritty and too thick. The "egg-roll" special was interesting. Atmosphere and service is above average. One visit is probably insufficient to judge a serious restaurant. I would return and give them another opportunity to wow me.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/28/2014
    We found this restaurant through OpenTable whch allowed us to select our party size and time. We arrived and saw a sticker on the front door that stated they were the OpenTable Diner's Choice for 2012. They did not have record of our reservation, made hours earleir, in their book but located it in the computer. I noticed the menu pricing was quite different than their website through OpenTable. Upon question, the burly manager said the difference is only $.50 to $1 when most items were $3-4 higher. All pasta is $22 and the website said $18. He said they have several dinner menus and said OpenTable was not updated. I said you accept their reservations and must accept the pricing and he did. The bill came properly adjusted.

    Tucked away on old route 22, the crowd of cars outside are a hint to what a nice place this is. This is classic Italian done really well. Creative preparations, really concerned service, and a wine list with a a good selection that is notable for reasonable prices. Very glad to have found it, and looking forward to going back.

    We arrived promptly for our reservation at 7:45 on a week night. The place was busy, but not full. We were seated immediately, and then -- waited. It took a long time to get menus, and a longer time to finally place our order. Meanwhile, several other tables were seated nearby, and their orders taken. When the waiter did get to us, he was apologetic, but again, food arrived slowly. We split a salad and had a main course, no dessert, and didn't get out until 10 pm. On the other hand, the food was very tasty; not exciting, but well-prepared, fairly classic Italian food.

    The Italian food served at Gavi is the real deal. My marinara sauce was "like mama's" and the pasta cooked "al dente". My tri-color salad was crisp and the salad dressing was nice and light but still full of flavor. My friends ate every bit of the food on their plates and we all agreed the food was delicious. The only down side was the noise level made conversation difficult. We were all busy eating so it was a minor annoyance!

    i have been a loyal patron for many years and returned after a year and found the menu had changed--a good thing---but the quality of the food preparation had eroded significantly. the Gavi antepasto platter--previously a delightful mixture of high quality and well prepared antepasto--had eroded to low quality calamari, portabello mushrooms that were old and overcooked and a ricotta cheese filled roll that was barely warm. the main dishes of fish were over breaded and the accompanying vegetables were cold. the wait for the food was excessive---a 2.5 hour meal was nearly 1.2 hours waiting for the food to be served.

    A good local standby Italian restaurant,local crowd celebrating birthdays; noticed a moving red beam of light on my husbands face, and determined it was coming from a table w/a bored child as he entertained himself pointing at the patrons. The food is very good, traditional menu w some specialties. The lamb meatballs were very good, but served warm. Mushroom Risotto - very good, but 2 much as a dinner - better as a 1/2 portion. Waitstaff were 2 fast, standing around the table etc., but then let us sit with empty wine glasses, never asked us if we would like a 2nd. The noise level is loud w a slight beating sound of music in the background that you cant really distinguish

    Our experience was fine but not special. Nice food, okay environment, easy parking (possibly because the restaurant was not that busy on a Sunday evening.) I did enjoy the appetizer of sautéed shrimp and artichokes. Salmon entrée on spinach was good as was Tiramisu dessert. Guess I was expecting more.

    We had a nice evening at Gavi. My meal was good, not great . I would like to go back and try different dishes. My husbands meal was very light and flavorful and mine was a little heavy . The service was good but rushed. It was a busy night and the waiters seemed under a lot of pressure which made it hard to relax when they came by.
