    The food was delicious, and as well presented as the fun setting in the patio. On top of those aspects, the waitress was very personable.

    Two of us made a dinner of four appetizers, mainly vegetables, that was delicious and plentiful. I wouldn’t hesitate to return. Also, great Prosecco!

    This was the second time my wife and I have eaten here and everything was fantastic! Our Halibut was tender and flavorful and everything else was a delight to the taste buds. A very quiet, romantic spot with amazing food!

    We love Gabriella's! The appetizers and salads are outstanding. We are often too full to enjoy the main dish until the next day.

    We went for Mother's Day brunch and really enjoyed it. We were seated quickly, service was very friendly, and the food was timely. Eggs Benedict were quite good, but the waffle did not seem freshly made (seemed just a little old from sitting in the kitchen). All in all, we liked it and will return for dinner.
