Excellent! While vacationing in Siesta Key we ate here. Allen brother's filet mignon was on the menu that evening, amazing choice.
A really nice experience. We were seated in a small wine room which reduced the noise significantly. Good food, great wine list, terrific service-YO JORDAN!- ample parking. Gave 4 stars on value because I didn’t pay and didn’t know how to rate it. (So for me it was a 10 star!)
Our second visit this month. Nice table with lots of space around us. Service and food were excellent. The best veal dish I have experienced in a long time. We will definitely be back.
Overall excellent especially the waiter. A little on the slow side because of young kids. Food was excellent all around.
This our go to place for Italian made with love. From mouth watering burata to homemade pasta it never disappoints. They have a great selection of wines at every price point. The staff provides great service and is knowledgeable about the menu. The ultimate treat is their Tiramisu which is just delectable!
Very disappointing. Two meals were served luke warm at best. Two other meals were the wrong dishes and had to wait 25 minutes for the correct dishes.
Have been to this restaurant on other occasions. First two loved it. Downhill since. Lasagna was terrible. Gnochhi was soft. Service was terrible. Drinks were weak.
My husband and I were visiting the area for the first time. Cafe Gabbiano was a very good choice. We enjoyed our meal, shared a great bottle of wine and loved our server. I think his name was Robbie. We will definitely go back on our next visit.
good food as always and friendly, personable staff
We have now been to this restaurant three times and each time the food and service was fabulous. We had a fun private room for 8 of us on Valentine's Day and the menu was superb. Will definitely go again!!!
Great food and wonderful service. The pasta was AMAZING!!
My wife and I celebrated Valentine's Day and her birthday here while visiting my parents. It's our 4th time here. It's great for celebrating occasions or just treating yourself. All the the options are awesome. The bread is some of the best around.
great ambiance...slow-paced, but very enjoyable. food, drinks and service were all first class.
A nice menu with classic Italian standards and some interesting other options. I had a house specialty of veal and eggplant with cheese, accompanied by rice and veggies and my husband had a veal stuffed ravioli with meat sauce. We split a house salad which was just the right size. The food was very good and well prepared. Service was very professional. They are only open for dinner and have seating in a couple of indoor dining rooms and outside patio seating. There is ample parking in a lot in front of them. We liked it enough that we are going back tomorrow (ate there Monday). This is peak season in Siesta Key so going to a good restaurant that takes reservations and has parking is top of my list.
Some family members met us in Siesta Key and we wanted to take them somewhere special and wonderful! Our visit to your restaurant was perfect, service outstanding, food delicious and the round table let everyone have good conversation.! Thank you!!
Good food. We had to wait awhile, but was good once it arrived. Waiter did a nice job. Noisy in the room we were in. Bar close by. We are coming back and have asked for a different location. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Great wine list but the fine print makes it difficult to read.
Good food, cozy & able to talk! Dined this past Monday evening & returning with different friends on Friday.
Waiter was great
Fabulous food and nice portions.
Fantastic.... as usual!
While our food and drinks were very good, I was disappointed in the level of service. We were in no hurry but after the adjoining table was seated after us, offered and received drinks and had their food orders taken, we still had not seen our waitress. We had to ask someone to send her to our email table. Once she arrived she was very friendly and helpful with our entree selections, but once again we had to ask for her for our dessert selection and to get the check.
Great ambiance and food...just disappointed a bit with service
All around Excellent meal and ambiance! Service was great !!
Wonderful Italian food right on Siesta Key! So glad we tried it, we will be back. Next time, I will request a table in the wine cellar, didn't realize that part of the restaurant existed until I used the restroom. Our table was nice, but that area was very cool. We will be back!
This place has always been a must do when we are in Siesta Key. I love the way the patio has been enclosed, much nicer than before.
The service is impeccable, the waitstaff friendly and knowledgeable.
Keep up the great service! and food!
Cafe Gabbiano never disappoints! Our party of 5 was seated promptly and the service was great! The food is outstanding!! Even though the atmosphere was great and the service was perfect...the excellent food is the reason to return.
This was my second time at Cafe Gabbiano. The first time was a Tuesday night around the same time last year. That experience was 5 stars throughout. As a result, when arriving at Siesta Key for a quick weekend and having my daughter drop in last week, was looking forward to a great Saturday night dinner. Big mistake. Had 7 o’clock reservation for three. After 45 minutes we finally received our appetizers. After another hour we finally received our meals. The place was packed, our waiter no where to be found and all we heard was all the tables around us grumbling and complaining. A shame because once the food came out, it was delicious at a reasonable price. I chalk it up to a overbook Saturday and insufficient number of wait staff. I will probably give the place one more try, but not on a weekend.
Our Server, Thomas was excellent (Saturday, Feb.3), very attentive and accommodating. The food was excellent and the time served as a very nice get together with old friends.
Unfortunately, we had a very long wait for our entrees. I don't think this was the server's fault.Other diners came and went and we still had no dinner. When it did arrive it was hot and everyone said their's was delicious. I will commend the management for comping the bottle of wine when we expressed our frustration.
Excellent, my wife and I will definitely be back and will highly recommend it to our friends and family
Absolutely great food served by an excellent server named Tiffany if my memory is working correctly . Even the bus lady was exceptional .. will definitely go back on our next trip to Sarasota,
