Had a lovely meal and evening...
Impossible to have a conversation when the restaurant is full. Inadequate sound insulation on walls, ceiling and floors. Otherwise, the food was quite good.
My go-to restaurant!!
Perfect service, staff was so friendly and food was delicious... perfect to celebrate birthdays!!
Service was gentle, quiet place and excellent food, from appetizers to deserts, homemade tiramisu is the best that I never taste... authentic Italian experience.
Food was not food. It did not seem fresh..Eggplant rollatini was cold in middle and very dry. The Parpadelle with Wild Boar and very little boar meat. The chicken in the chicken scarpiello was dry and over cooked, may have been rehaeated. The tiramisu was awful. It was basically lady fingers and whipped cream...this was a bad experience..would not go back or recommend.
Overall disappointing! It had been recommended by friends and was expecting something quite different. The dining room was loud, not well decorated and the service was well intended but inefficient. The food was either over flavored (Gorgonzola sauce on rollatini over powered) or under- (chicken parmigiana stuffed ravioli special had virtually no chicken) and butter was foil wrapped! For a $50+ meal, I won’t be returning.
Very good food and the service was great
Would definitely go back and also recommend it to friends and family
Love place been there 3 times always good from appetizers to dessert
Gavi continues to be an excelled classic "old school" Italian restaurant. The senior wait staff comes straight from Italy with accents that only add to the authenticity. Wherever we went on the menu, everything our group ordered was excellent. Salads, special appetizers, were great. Service was extremely attentive, fresh bread and creamy butter, water glasses constantly be re-filled, was all in the background, trying no to interfere with the evening's conversation. Special seafood dishes were ordered and the consensus was that it exceeded expectations.
We got in our car to drive home and we looked at each other and said "Wow, what a great evening".
Always can count on Gavi for an exceptional meal
Very good food and very attentive wait staff. We were all very happy overall.
Have been here a number of times never disapointed. The food is always good, the service always great and accommodating. We were there with 6 people, and we were comfortable. The fees were reasonable. The server we had this time, I believe Cesare? was super friendly and we had fun chatting in Italian. We will definitely be back
❤️delicious. Great service, could eat here everyday! (Sometimes I do!)
Always a great meal at Gavi....no complaints..[
They were having a large private party in back of restaurant & the rest of the patrons had to wait long time for food. Waited at least 15 min for bread & water. 45 minutes for apoy’s. Staff pleasant but rediculously over stretched . All food was very good. The Arancini was delicious but if it didn’t come with hot bolongnese sauce on the side it would have been too cold to eat.
We love this restaurant ! We always know we will get a delicious meal , great service, If you have a favorite dish not on the menu.They always make it perfectly cooked and generous portions !
Highly recommend Gavi!
Gavi is a good neighborhood establishment with a traditional southern Italian menu. All the food had good ingredients and was properly prepared, but the seasonings were a little weak and they could use more of that. Service was fine. The place was starting to fill up as we were finishing up and it was getting very loud. So, if you do not like loud restaurants, avoid peak times.
No bread in an Italian restaurant not a great dinner
I have never had a bad dining experience at Gavi. I recommend it to anyone looking for a great Italian meal.
I’ve been going to Gavi for over 15 years - consistently great food and service!
I had my birthday dinner here and it was amazing!!!! Perfectly cooked lamb chops and a special dessert!!!
What a great place! Big portions, fresh sauces, and pastas. Can’t go wrong.
Food is always fabulous! Atmosphere is so fun and cozy!!! Love my Gavi!
Staff is always lovely. I had a pasta dish that was quite good. Others had lamb chops and said they were done perfectly. Nice evening!
Great service and excellent food.
Great meal with great service in a wonderful ambiance.
Consistently good food
I loved my eggplant and mozzarella pasta dish. my husband had the lamb chops and they were the tiniest lamb chops we've ever seen. stuffed clams appetizer were also teeny clams. calamari appetizer and drinks were good! service was great. ambience very good.
Went on a Saturday night. First time there. Branzino and Halibut specials were delicious. Trenette Riva - fresh linguine with shrimp, crabmeat & arugula in a blush sauce was outstanding. Only area for improvement would be to add another waiter and bus boy. Waiter was attentive when we arrived however once at capacity he could have used some help.
Delicious! Big portions, fresh ingredients. Makes you Feel like home.
Best restaurant within 100 miles of Manhattan!!!
“Delicious” experience in every way. The service and food were terrific! Only wish the noise levels could be lessened.
Ravioli was out of this world!
Every meal here is fantastic!! Love the Chicken Scarp! Best around!!!
I WILL NEVER BE BACK
Had dinner , can not say one bad thing outstanding owner Franco made you feel at home
Too noisy. We moved outside during the meal
The service staff was lovely, but the restaurant itself is old and tired. We waited almost one and one half hours for our appetizers. The food was less then mediocre. I am at a loss as to why the restaurant was completely full. This is not Italian food .. it is food that is actually pretty embarrassing. I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone.
