March was mud crab month at Gambaro. All of us had the special, it was exceptional. The crabs were cooked to perfection and the crabs were so full. If you want mud crabs this is the place to go.

We went there as a birthday celebration for myself, the cocktails were great, service very attentive and the seafood platter (which was the very reason we went) was outstanding. We also ordered broccolini as a side and that was ample for the two of us.
