Service was great but I had to get through the meal with wine. The food was served originally wrong and cold. If you want a restaurant that uses all frozen ingredients to make a meal it is the place for you. Really bad non existent taste of food. Being a foodie I won't be back.

I'm sorry you didn't have a good experience! And I certainly apologize about your order being wrong and cold - it happens but it's rare at our place. I would like to set the record straight: on the "frozen food" because it's simply not true. We pride ourselves in making EVERYTHING from scratch. Sauces, lasagnas, meatballs, we even make the...

Food was good. Service was good. Small quaint Italian restaurant. Adequate selection on the menu. The menu is pricy. I think this is keeping this place from growing. Open tables. Quick seating. Pricy.

I've never left an Italian restaurant hungry before. The food was tasteful and the service was fine. We ordered the shrimp and asparagus linguine for dinner. It came out smaller than a lunch portion. We tried to fill up on garlic toast but it was tasteless.

Family owned/operated hole in the wall, excellent for family dining, reasonable prices, comfortable red-checkered tabletop atmosphere. Sometimes the kitchen is a bit slow. All items my family members have ordered have been good---the boys almost lick their plates--but for me the best is baked rigatoni with meat sauce, artichokes, capers and mushrooms.. One of two or three best meals in... More

Ordered the veggie lasagna. Couldn't find the veggies. All mozzarella and no ricotta. Stringy and chewy to eat. Light pasta but couldn't find it in the mountain of cheese. Colleague ordered shrimp scampi. Big bowl of spaghetti with a few shrimp on top. Don't go to find anything light on the menus.

Gave hostess our name and was told wait would be about 10 minutes. Sat directly in front of host checkin station. After waiting 10 minutes, another party of two came in and was told there was a wait. The next thing we see is a waitress grab them and completely ignore the fact we were sitting right in front of... More

There are several little pasta spots in Norman, OK and none of them are bad, but Gaberino's is hands down the best. The spaghetti and meatballs cant be beat, and the place has a wonderful romantic ambiance to it. The service was top notch and the food delicious. My wife and I have made Gaberino's our go to pasta spot.

5 stars! The food here will blow you away, excellent healthy portions, flavorful, friendly staff ... the best Italian in town, no doubt! We've been twice now and it does not disappoint. This will be a once-a-week or every other week place for sure! Give it a try!!!
