Recently hosted a birthday party for my Canadian friend having eating here a year ago. The service was top notch. Friendly. The cuisine was delicious. The prices were quite affordable for the level of restaurant that this is. I would highly recommend Il Gabbiano Ristorante!!! My favorite place to eat in Windsor. I cant wait to return in 2018!

The food at Il Gabbiano is outstanding but the night was made perfect by our waiter, Michele. Everything she recommended was spot on. Her bubbly personality was refreshing. A positively "go back" place for a relaxing, enjoyable evening of good food.

Poor service -non -attentive server-waited over 2.5 for our dinner finally called server over to cancel. After 2.5 wait you would think they would have done something to offset poor service not one thing was offered. Matter of fact paid $30.00 for bread, ceasar salad and 2 rye/coke

I met with a group of women friends for New Years Eve 2017 at this amazing restaurant. We orders a bunch of stuff off of the menu and shared all of the dishes. The staff were friendly and attentive to all of our needs. The food was excellent cooked just right with flavors that just popped in your mouth. We... More
