Visited for dinner based on business partner's recommendations. We cannot experience real Italian cuisine in SOMD, so Gabrielle's fit the bill. They had a nice selection of wine; I am partial to Muscato and thoroughly enjoyed my glass, which was a pretty good size.

They have an assortment of Italian food, so there is bound to be something for everyone. The pizza was ok, but there is a lot of better pizza in the area. The decor is old-style Italian. Service was good and attentive.

It was enough for 3 people at least. I ordered pasta in lobster sauce. It was delicious! For dessert 2 scoops of homemade chocolate mousse. I took most of my... More

Gabriele's is a local landmark and deservedly so. Over the decades their level of excellence in food, service and atmosphere has been consistently high. Not only is the food both excellent and authentic but the portions are very generous! Worth mentioning the bar as well. Some of the best mixed drinks and wines by the glass available in our area...

plenty of food, but not that great. Had reservation for ten, I felt like we were squeezed in. Individual checks were very helpful.
