Gavi is local gem with consistently good food and attentive and reliable service. We sat on their patio which gets unobstructed sunlight throughout the day (shade umbrellas are available!). We had a Caprese appetizer, two excellent Arugula salads with shrimp and an order of Gnocchi. All were fresh and well seasoned. We also enjoyed two cocktails, expertly made and two glasses of wine. Sue took excellent care of us.

Overall passable but unimpressive. The service was spotty at times. Started with calamari and burrata special. Calamari was lightly battered and tasty. Burrata special totally uninspired - basically cheese with tomato and arugula. No seasoning and no balsamic or oil. We had gnocchi with vodka sauce, double veal chop and scallopini di Gavi. The gnocchi was so al dente as to almost be inedible. The veal chop was a nice piece of meat which was cooked well to order but it came with three potato halves and a small portion of broccoli rabe. The whole plate lacked pizzaz and not a lick of seasoning anywhere. Not even salt or pepper which was also not on the table. It’s as if they grilled the meat with no seasoning whatsoever and put it on the plate. Nothing on the vegetables either. The veal di Gavi was tasty but also lacked any real seasoning especially on the vegetables which were similarly unexciting. Also the Marsala sauce seemed off in terms of taste. Not like a traditional Marsala. Overall not a horrible meal but quite frankly the place was packed and I am not sure what folks see in it. There is way better Italian in the area at or less than the price point here.

I hosted three other people for dinner last Sat night. Only when I asked for the check did the waiter inform me -- in front of my guests -- that if I paid by credit card the restaurant would add 4% to the check to cover the credit card fee he said the restaurant is charged by the credit card company. He said if I paid cash for the check and the tip, I would only be charged the amount of the check and they wouldn't add an additional 4% for the tip. He said "all the restaurants we doing it." Not only is that not true, but the waiter had no issue opening an extra bottle of Peligrino water on the table near the end of the meal that no one asked for or drank from. If this is the restaurant's policy, it needs to be crystal clear upfront -- when the reservation is made. This was slimy and tainted the experience. Be wary.

I enjoyed the Tri-color salad with grilled chicken and it was so delicious! My friends had the pork chop with peppers and they loved it! My other friends had pasta dinners and enjoyed them. We sat outside and the heaters were on so it was warm and cozy. The service was excellent. We missed seeing the owner-Frank.

We enjoyed an antipasti dish. I loved my Tri Colore salad with grilled chicken and extra fennel...so delicious and healthy! My friends loved their pasta dishes. My family member loved the pork chops with sweet peppers. Excellent service and warm ambiance. The owner Frank is so wonderful and nice to all his customers!

Another fabulous dining experience at Gavi. Consistent Delicious meals and attentive waitstaff. Frank and his staff have gone above and beyond to make sure that all CDC guidelines are being followed for safe dining inside and out. The outdoor dining is a beautiful setting and has plenty of heaters for warmth and comfort! A long-time neighborhood staple.

Gavi was the last restaurant we went out to before the world shut down last year and we were thrilled to return a year later to celebrate my son’s 20th birthday. The food is always delicious and the service friendly yet professional. They even came out with a special dessert and sang happy birthday. Tables are well spaced and COVID precautions followed. I hope more people return to eating out soon to support them.

Food was not food. It did not seem fresh..Eggplant rollatini was cold in middle and very dry. The Parpadelle with Wild Boar and very little boar meat. The chicken in the chicken scarpiello was dry and over cooked, may have been rehaeated. The tiramisu was awful. It was basically lady fingers and whipped cream...this was a bad experience..would not go back or recommend.

Overall disappointing! It had been recommended by friends and was expecting something quite different. The dining room was loud, not well decorated and the service was well intended but inefficient. The food was either over flavored (Gorgonzola sauce on rollatini over powered) or under- (chicken parmigiana stuffed ravioli special had virtually no chicken) and butter was foil wrapped! For a $50+ meal, I won’t be returning.

Gavi continues to be an excelled classic "old school" Italian restaurant. The senior wait staff comes straight from Italy with accents that only add to the authenticity. Wherever we went on the menu, everything our group ordered was excellent. Salads, special appetizers, were great. Service was extremely attentive, fresh bread and creamy butter, water glasses constantly be re-filled, was all in the background, trying no to interfere with the evening's conversation. Special seafood dishes were ordered and the consensus was that it exceeded expectations.

We got in our car to drive home and we looked at each other and said "Wow, what a great evening".
