Stopped on our way to the airport. Was a bit early but they accommodated without a problem. The bar area was lively. Felt like we were in Italy. Sat in dining area. They brought out a small lentil dish with bread to start. Delicious! We had a few salads and they made a penne arrabbiata that puts Little Italy in NYC to shame. Going back on my next trip.

The service at Gavi was outstanding. My wife is pregnant and we opted to eat outside (in 40 degree weather). Franco and the staff at Gavi were extremely accommodating and friendly. They truly treated us like family. Not to mention, the food was incredible! We can't wait to be back at our new favorite Italian spot in Armonk!

The room was filled, even over crowded with a few large parties. The noise level was high such that the server had to lean into us at the table to speak to us & to hear us overturn. The service was excellent. It was fast & attentive. The food was also top notch. The pace if service was spot on. The cost was reasonable when compared to other restaurants of it's style.

I loved the salad with grilled chicken and fennel. It was so delicious. My friend Fiona loved the Penne Voldka! My mom loved her Eggplant Parmigiana! The ambiance is warm and inviting. The owner Frank is so nice to his customers. The staff are so wonderful and accommodating!

Outstanding food, service and in a lovely ambiance. The delicate braised artichoke heart special are a "must return here to have again." My salmon with Dijon cream sauce and spinach was divine. One friend wanted the Grouper special but with a different sauce and the kitchen gladly accommodated her request. Another friend had the double pork chop (on the menu) and said while one chop was very tender, the other could have been more so, but both were devoured.
This was my first visit here but it won't be my last. Great place!

Gavi is always a very nice experience. It feels like an Italian family restaurant, the likes of which you might find in the Bronx.

Loved everything about it. Special preparations on foods had before and to the better—calamari.
Only negative were the inconsiderate loud mouths trying to convince everyone else in the restaurant they were having the best time.

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.
