    Best Italian restaurant I've ever been even after my trip to italy. Lamb chop with truffle cognac sauce is to DIE for. Branzino is amazing too. Calamaries and tuna tartar is a must for appetizer!

    By-the-book veal saltimboca, osso buco, salt-crusted branzino, and other classics make Il Gabbiano one of Miami's top spots for quality, authentic Italian fare. Read more

    Great Italian in the water ask to sit outside. Trendy. Great appetizers to start even before you get menus. Love the wheel of Parmesan. Pastas great

    Great service and delicious food. I had the pollo alla martini w/ side of spinach and roasted potatoes which was superb! I enjoyed all the complimentary appetizers, come here on an empty stomach!

    Even though the focus of their cuisine is Italian, they also have a delicious filet mignon. I also really enjoyed the pear salad.

    Beautiful views outside on the patio. The portions are rather large so they can easily be split. We had the filet mignon, it was delicious!

    This is my favorite restaurant. I've been everywhere but I'll always come back to Il Gabbiano. If you're ever in Toronto and looking for our favorite buzz us and we'll hook you up!

    Cristina C. is an idiot. Obviously is talking about a different restaurant. Been here three times never had to wait, never even made reservations and have been on busy days. Amazing staff as well.

    The bread basket alone impresses with three different choices but once you get pass that, they offer great veal dishes and large portions of pasta. The ricotta cheesecake is unlike any other.

    You start out with an antipasti of cheeses, meats, olives, breads and more...a fresh fish of the evening helps balance things out the heavy start.

    Go elsewhere. I had a TERRIBLE service experience. I wrote and called to let them know,never heard back. Bottom line: They don't really care...not even when you spent $200 on a lunch..w/ no dessert.

    The food is good, but extremely over priced for small portions. Even w/ a reservation you gotta wait 30+ minutes for a table. The staff is very fake and rude they charm you into spending more money.
