We had a great dinner and the restaurant even drove us back to our hotel after dinner (Llao Llao). Wonderful appetizers. I adored the Parma Prosciutto, others had antipasta and tomato soup. For the main, I enjoyed a pasta that was supposed to be spicy but not for my palate. My table had the over sized gnocchis (I forget their... More

This small and cozy restaurant located minutes from the Llao Llao resort, offers a fantastic food and great service. Very nice wine list. Daily specials are presented the old fashion way on a chalkboard at the table. Delicious food is created by the hands of Chef Noemi Barchetta, her dishes, flavors, freshness are incredible! Do not miss a chance to... More

Had a very nice meal here. Home made pasta, a good bottle of italian wines and creamy deserts. Service was friendly and past. Not too much space for parking. Close to llao llao resort, concierge can make reservations for you.

We had a wonderful meal here while staying at the Llao Llao resort. Free transfers from the resort. Delicious food and wine. I had the ossobuco which was superb, trout was also very good.

My boyfriend and I went there for our last dinner in Bariloche and everything went fantastic. The waitress spoke English so she really helped us to pick the perfect dish. The menu doesn’t have many options, but the food quality is absolutely incredibly. We had a delicious bottle of Luigi Bosca Malbec , highly recommended. Hopefully we will go back... More

Probably one of the best Italian meals 'ever' combined with sterling service and a fantastic wine list. The ambiance was extraordinary, the menu written in chalk as it changes frequently and all pastas made fresh each day.

We were at Il Gabbiano during our stay at Bariloche for an amazing dinner. All dishes were perfect and the staff attention was magnificent. If you ever come to Bariloche, you should pay a visit to Il Gabbiano for sure!

This restaurant suffers from voting inflation. It is nowhere near as good as suggested by people on TA. We have been to several good Italian restaurants around the world, and this is not one of them. The food was not terrible, but it's something an average chef can make at home (we had the spaghetti carbonara and rigatelli with tomato... More
