The Menu
Pear and Green Apple Salad with Goat Cheese, Honey and Balsamic Reduction
Prosecco DOC
Soft bubbles at the palate, light yellow color, fresh and harmonious taste. The fine and soft bubbles of this wine perfectly match with the delicacy of this appetizer.

Seared Fresh Sea Scallops with a Mango Pineapple Coulis
Ribolla Giolla
It's an old indigenous and typical wine from Friuli Venezia Giulia, whose main features are its dryness and intense aromas. The dryness of Ribolla Gialla cleans the mouth and therefore enhance the taste of the fish.

Pan Seared Seabass Aquapaza (Cherry Tomatoes, Potatoes, Garlic and Olive Oil)
or
Scaloppini or Pollo with Chopped Artichokes in a Truffle Oil and White Wine Sauce
Grion
Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Perfect balance of flavors and aromas. Its best quality is elegance and can be paired both with meat and fish.

Chilled Pear Tart
Recioto
Valentina Cubi Recioto Valpolicella (Veneto): made from organically grown grapes. Perfect balance of sweetness and freshness with notes of chocolate. Meditation wine that can be enjoyed on its own but that also perfectly match with desserts.

My wife and I wanted to go somewhere a bit more fancy while on our honeymoon and Cafe Gabbiano definitely delivered. The staff was very knowledgeable and polite. The food we ordered was worth every penny. We plan on coming back in the future and we both would highly recommend this establishment to anyone!
Response from the owner - 2 weeks ago
Isaac! So flattered that you would spend one of your honeymoon evenings with us. I am so delighted to hear that everything was to your liking and can't wait to have you back again! Cheers. - Marc, Owner

We had a party of six and sat in the wine room. We felt the atmosphere and service were excellent! The food was very very good. We had an appetizer, main course and dessert. The staff was very attentive. We went there for a special occasion. We would recommend this place for sure.

Party of 10 what a waste of time. Worse food ever. Completely out of steaks. Pasta was all stuck together. Chinese waiter messed up our bill. Go to the to another restaurant. Very over priced. Should have went to McDonald's

Tried this restaurant for the 1st time being it was my Birthday had the worst experience. Had a reservation for 7:15pm we arrived at 7:10pm we were seated right away waited for my drink which took about 25 min ordered 2 appetizers which one of them was cold then our Main Dishes were not put on the table until 9:10pm. No sense in staying for coffee and desert which we were looking forward to because it was so late. Extremely Slow Service. The food was average.
Response from the owner - a year ago
A wait like that is absolutely unacceptable, Cheryl. We had a communication breakdown with your table that night. I have already discussed the details of the issue with the team. Please know this is out of the ordinary for us. To make up for it, I would like to invite you back in. Ask for myself or Peter and we will take care of you and make up for our shortfalls that night. Hope you'll decide to give us another shot — I know we won't disappoint twice! Thanks, Marc, Owner
