This was our first time and it was Fabulous!! Great atmosphere and service. We were a group of 4. We all ordered different entrees and all were excellent! Can't wait to come back!
Amazing service and food was delicious
Had a nice dinner outside! Excellent service, good food!
Amazing!! Service was impeccable. Food was absolutely delicious. Dessert was perfect. Best restaurant in the Village.
Cafe Gabbiano is truly a diamond in the rough. Surrounded in Siesta Key Village by tourist driven Tiki hut hamburger spots and frozen drink joints, this restaurant tucked away off the beaten track....over delivers every single time we partake. The food is awesome (fabulous Italian-chef inspired -the real deal) , the wine is special and most of all the people (owners to the wait staff are some of the nicest & best people you could spend any evening with anywhere). Hey don't take my word for it, get over to this wonderful place and have some wonderful il mangiare.
Tommy was superb. He made our anniversary dinner the best ever. Could not have asked for a better experience. Food was great (lobster ravioli, bruschetta), wine was amazing. Ps - ask to sit in the wine cellar :)
quaint charming spot. food and service were very good.
Nice evening with very pleasant waitstaff. We were there for our anniversary and they comped us dessert which was a very nice touch. This was our second visit and unfortunately the food was not as good this time around but overall a nice dinner. We’ll be back.
Dinner was fabulous…First class service!
Superb Italian food!
We love this place... the food is outstanding. The service is the same.
Food was amazing! Service top notch! Server knew the wine list well!
Great place, great food, great service. Definitely worth a visit.
It was our last day of vacation, the meal and service was wonderful thank you ! I had the truffle ravioli,, it was soooo good ! it was gone off of my plate
Almost instantly ! Even thought about it some more the next day (:
One of the best places on Siesta Key - NEVER disappoints -
great menu, wine list and service team
Absolutely a fantastic experience! We were celebrating my daughter’s 18th birthday and they hand wrote her a birthday card signed by everyone, the service was fantastic, the food was beyond amazing, and the whole experience was absolutely amazing. I will definitely travel back to Siesta Key just to come here to eat again.
Discovered this little gem last year and had to go back again this year. Food is excellent and very fresh. The service was great and very accommodating when my friend wanted to change her order 10 minutes after it was placed.
2nd visit here in few weeks. Requested Tommy after our great experience on 1st visit. Everything was great again. Great food, great wine selection, great service!!!
Amazing food, amazing service!
Enjoyed the great wine least!! Food was wonderful. Loved the waiter. I would definitely recommend
Excited to take fincee out on our 11th anniversary I decided to try Cafe Gabbiano. Nice place, good waiter but the actual food wasnt the best and the price was high. Staff/ Mgmt was kind enough to compliment dinner with desert and cocktails for both of us which was really gracious. Being originally from NYC, I struggle with most resturants here..quality of the plate and service (typically) at the cost dont seem to equal. I expected high quality Reggiano cheese on the platter but found it very basic which was the first impression. Next..I ordered an off the menu item which is my fault but i had high expectations going in. Fiancee ordered filet mignone..looked great ..cooked correct temp but had no wow at all..she said taste like a hamburger...all n all alittle dissappinted. With some tweeking this place could have been great. Any decent resturant in NY would have a demi glaze for a veal chop or atleast a better fake...oh well ..better luck next time..seafood maybe?
absolutely fantastic in all regards. The Veal Chop and Salmon were amazing and we enjoyed the Key lime pie and cannoli.
Everything was fabulous! It was our 2nd time there and we took friends. Ricco was fantastic at suggesting and very professional yet personable. We will definitely be back!
Great food, the service I could not rate a 5 star as our waitress was a little slow on reacting to request. We will go back in the future.
Meal was phenomenal and service was outstanding!!
Amazing food!!! So good. Loved the whole place!
Wonderful place in Siesta village!!! Great choice of Italian food:pasta, fish, meat! Our waiter was very attentive and friendly!!
We had a wonderful evening dining at this classic restaurant. The decor was welcoming, our server Nora was excellent and the food was outstanding. My wife and I shared the Gnocchi Bolognese as an appetizer and the sauce was a perfect fit for the pasta. Our entrees consisted of the Scaloppine Mamma Lucia and the Veal Chop Parmigiana. The veal for both dishes was so tender and the vegetables were very fresh. A bottle of the Porter Family Cave Dweller blend was the perfect accompaniment to our meal. It was more than worth the 197 miles round trip drive and we are already looking forward to our next visit.
food was superb as was wine list menu prices were moderate and portions large would definitely return
Service and ambiance was amazing! I will definitely go back. I order chicken parm and it was a little dry/ overcooked. But overall everything was great
Server was amazing!!! I believe his name was Tommy. Great server!
The food was excellent and the wait staff very attentive. I couldn’t decide on a wine, and the waiter brought two for me to sample and choose. We were very comfortable with the seating and mask wearing by staff. The touch less checkout with QR code was a great option. Will definitely return!
We had a wonderful dining experience! The service was excellent and very attentive, we will definitely return!
Food, atmosphere and service were all superb! It was perfect for my birthday celebration!
Our waitress so so friendly and patient with our kids. The food was amazing and it was such a treat.
Dined outside on the patio on a breezy evening. Good wine and great food with superior service
Amazing place with delicious food and friendly staff!
Always a great choice. The food and service are equally fantastic!
Great food and service. Good social distancing. Veal Parmigiana was excellent.
Food was pretty good but nothing knocked my socks off. Our server had his mask around his chin but the other wait staff were wearing theirs. No enforcement of masks in common areas for other patrons. Our meal was pricey for what it was and for the area.
Delicious food and great service.
