AMAZING Wedding Reception! :)
Cafe Gabbiano was amazing!! We hosted our wedding reception here for 25 guests. The entire experience was flawless, from the decor set up to the amazing staff! Not to mention the food is DELSIH! :) Not too many people can say their guests raved about their wedding dinner, every single one of my guests said their food was AMAZING and even took leftovers home! All in all I cannot recommend Cafe Gabbiano enough has an epic venue for a wedding reception! Thank you again, Cafe Gabbiano team for a magical night!! Forever grateful!! :)Sent on 10/29/2020

great place and owners are so accomodating!
My fiance and I are traveling to Florida for our wedding because most of my family is there so we wanted a place that we could have the ceremony AND the reception. Cafe Gabbiano is the perfect spot! The restaurant is beautiful and the owners Marc and Peter are amazing and so accomodating, we have 1 wedding guest that has special dietary needs and they said no worries. They can modify anything on the menu. We decided to have dinner at the restaurant before we decided on having the ceremony there. THE FOOD WAS INCREDIBLE! They make their own pasta!! We are so excited for our upcoming wedding day in May 2020.Sent on 10/29/2019

Fantastic service and delicious food
My son and his wife wanted to get married on the beach. They also looked up this restaurant online and said that's where they wanted their reception. Neither one of them had ever eaten there and I did not know anyone that has eaten there so my first response is I don't think that's a good idea. So I read a lot of reviews that gave them 5 stars. I contacted them to check pricing and reception info. From the first phone call they were amazing. I only had 4 months to plan the wedding and reception and they were great about working with me on a short notice. I wanted to taste the food before the reception so me and the bride went for dinner and to finalize everything a month before. I could not believe the quality of the food. Everything was so fresh and delicious. You would have thought we were Queens with the royal treatment we received. Now it's receiption time and I'm trying to be wedding coordinator, decorator and Mom. By the way not a good idea. I was crazy by the time the wedding was to start. I took my reception supplies to them and gave a quick run down on how I wanted it to look. They listen and decorated the room above and beyond my expectations. It was stunning. There was so much delicious food. I coordinate and decorate weddings for people. I have worked at different venues and I have never ever had the service I did at Cafe Gabbiano's. Their staff is PHENOMENAL!!! I highly recommend this restaurant for receptions or just a nice dinner out. There are not enough words to describe how pleased I am with Cafe Gabbiano's.Sent on 01/12/2019

Always a pleasure to set up weddings here. The inside makes you feel as if you're in a wine cellar in Italy, and the staff is always friendly. Perfect place for an intimate reception.
They are a great vendor to work with - very professional and accommodating to their clients! Top Notch!
We love working with Café Gabbiano! It's a great spot for dinner, or any event!
