This is the best I REPEAT the best Italian food I have ever had. I have been going to SPI for the past four years twice a year and I am so sad I just discovered this place last year. I went on 5 day vaca and ate dinner her every night each day.

A little more upscale than your run of the mill South Padre restaurants, and you'll pay for it. However, it's totally worth the few extra $$$. Great salad and breadsticks. Wonderful menu so everyone (even the kids) can find something they will enjoy. Lasagne was superb.

Gabriella's never disappoints. Make sure you come early or come in and sit by the Bar and enjoy. The bar has a great wine selection but I go for the beer, a great selection. The menu is extensive and the pizza's are great. Manicotti excellent. We brought a friend for his first Italian, we have ruined his life forever if... More

We had a terrific experience at Gabriella's. The food was fresh and flavorful. The service was top notch. Ana was our server and she seemed to know what we needed before we did. We would recommend this restaurant to both families and couples wanting a quiet place. If we'd had another night in South Padre we would have gone back.

This is by far the best Fettuccine Alfredo I have ever had. I can't recommend it enough. The place is pricey, but well worth the extra money for quality Italian food. Their sauces are homemade from scratch. The bread is absolutely delicious mixed with the spices you dip it in. I would love to go back someday.

I tried to order delivery from this restaurant, but they said they were not doing delivery during spring break, despite that being the most popular time of the year on the island. I then went to pick up my food and bring it back only to find that they did not give me one of the items I ordered but... More

Great atmosphere, music, fine Italian food. Walking distance from La Copa Inn. They offer sun room dining, or the dim lighted dining. Very good wait staff.
