    Everything was perfect for a business lunch meeting. Food, service, ambiance, noise level were all great. Took Greek pizza home to husband and he commented "it was the best pizza he had ever eaten". Definitely will return soon and often.

    They were unable to honor our request for a booth seat therefore we had to sit in a very noisy busy area. While the service was good the food was disappointing compared to other dining experiences at Gavi.

    The food was great, as was the service. The biggest complaint was the ridiculously small tables. There were four of us and the table was so small it barely fit the salad plates that were preset at the table. The waiter had to remove the bread plates, oil and vinegar bottles and candles from the table, just so he could serve the dinner plates. If you have four people in your party and can’t reserve a booth, consider going somewhere else.

    Our dinner was excellent in every way. The food and ambiance takes me back to eating on our trips to Italy. The food is Italian Italian to us not American Italian. As a result we love this restaurant. We had stuffed Salmon and Veal Marsala. The bread and antipasto are excellent - so much so that you have to be careful not to eat too much so there is room for the entree. But it is oh so good!! Our server was excellent. Not hovering but available whenever you want or need something and he had a great personality. That is the best kind of server. The desserts were Wonderful. We had both the gelato, chocolate of course, and tiramisu. Both were excellent. Suffice it to say we will be back soon.

    This was a most enjoyable meal. We had reservations and were seated as soon as we arrived. Johnny was our server and he was outstanding. His suggestions for the various entrees were spot-on so we enjoyed several that we'd never tried before -- very scrumptious. We'll be back soon!

    Tonight was our first visit. The food was truly excellent. I ordered one of the many specials. Perfectly sautéed, egg battered sole piccata. Lightly crisp on the outside, light and moist inside, with hot piccata served hot on the side so the fish stayed crisp, or not, depending on how you wanted. Husband had the 3Ps pasta. Luscious, without being clawingly heavy. We’ll definitely look forward to going again! A little more noisy than we might like, but it ended up no big deal.

    We were promptly seated and the staff was attentive to our needs. My wife had a dish of seafood and pasta which had good flavor but the sauce was a little thin and didn’t add the flavor to the dish. I had pizza and it was good and cooked properly but due to the toppings I ordered it was a little soggy in the middle. The pizza was still pretty good.

    We haven't ever been to Piazza Gavi on the east side of town. There was one at the Foothills Mall years ago and we loved the food. Last night was really great except for the noise level. Maybe next time we will request a different table. Over all we loved it.

    Disappointed with service with waitress. She did not connect with us much and missed the miscommunication with kitchen on not serving our appetizer. Our meal came out wonderful as usual. We did not finish our meal and took home leftovers. However waitress did not pack order right and hubby’s meal did not have sauce on side packed. Our first time ever having issues but it still was a great time and meal. Manager always so wonderful and love talking to her about Italy

    We had a terrific meal, sat inside the restaurant in a booth. It was a Friday evening so the noise level was fine. Enjoyed being greeted by the Host; the best part of the dinner was our Server, Margarita was excellent and super attentive. She really was super attentive-She made our dining experience real special. Will definitely go back to Gavi’s!

    I remember when Gavi's was a hole in the wall at a strip mall when I lived in the neighborhood. The food was excellent back then some 20 years+ and he hasn't dropped the ball since. I had the combo ravioli & the fettuccine carbonara was the second entree. Both were really outstanding and I have a pretty jaded palate so I'm not easily impressed. I was yesterday for lunch!
