Everything at Cafe Gabbiano’s is made in house! Their pastas, raviolis, and sauces are to die for. Their menu is dynamic, featuring many daily specials incorporating local and seasonal ingredients!

Their entire menu is incredible, so we wanted to have some fun…Try something from their “secret menu” by asking for the Sauteed Calamari Antipasti and adding Pesto! 

We can’t forget their robust wine and drink menu. They have over 200 different wines in house, a great crafted cocktail menu and a flight list where you can sample 3 types of liquors and wines side by side such as their Ports, Bourbon, Scotch and international dessert wines as a few examples.
