Always a favorite. Great food. Same atmosphere as their old location just a bit bigger. Service this time was less than desirable as we waited almost 30 minutes before someone came by to ask if we wanted anything for dessert or coffee. Usually much better service than this.

The food was good and the service fine (during dinner). The problem was with the Open Table reservation. Most places, the points are credited even before you've left the restaurant. This place - no. Call after call; the staff had no idea about it - what it was, what to do. The owner/manager at one point said he would do it. Didn't happen for days. You have to keep at them or it won't happen. Why bother using Open Table at this establishment anymore?

We dine out often, I have never had such a horrible dining experience. It was 1 1/2 hours later before we even got a menu. Thankfully we were a party of 8 so we had a lot to talk about.
When we got the bill, we were charged for 4 bottles of wine instead of 2. He (one of the owners) corrected the error without an apology. Six of us ordered branzino @ 20.00. He charged us 65.00 per 2 orders. The math does not add up. He said that the Branzino is only 1 filet and he felt that would not be sufficient so he decided without our consent to double the order (again the math does not add up). The final straw was when he charged us for 9 mains not 8. He became extremely rude and argumentative. To the point that he was swearing at my girlfriend.
Unfortunately, he did not adjust the bill (except for the wine).
The whole experience was absolutely horrible. I would never, ever recommend Gamberoni to anyone.

Family Day dinner with our two girls

Gamberoni’s was where my wife and I had our first date and it has had a special place in our hearts ever since.

Their customer service and family style ownership always make you feel at home. They go the extra mile.

We often as for their advice or changes in menu items and they always oblige and often give helpful suggestions for great combos of pasta, sauce and ingredients.

Outstanding neighbourhood place.

Sadly they did not honour our reservation and we waited and waited and ended up upstairs with no ambiance.

Fantastic food and lovely service - but we will have to think twice about going back.

The service in this restaurant takes away from not bad food.
The waiter brought me the wrong dish and argued with me that I had ordered it.
My dish had seafood and this one was vegetables?
I kept it and ate it but......
Truthfully, when we ordered the waiter seemed disinterested.
Probably why he got it wrong.
Food ok.... service would keep me away.

Absolutely authentic Italian food prepared by the owner whom is Italian. Our server Mamu was polite and attentive to our needs. A must for anyone looking for wonderful Italian food! The quaintness of the restaurant reminded me of places in Italy I’ve been to....

The one issue I do have with this establishment, I never received my 100 points because the owner did not confirm with Open Table that I showed up for my reservation.
