Hidden from the main roads within a shopping center is this little Italian restaurant I had the chicken Parmesan and it was good, nice tasty crust on the chicken. Marinara sauce was good; hearty and thick. Well portioned as well. Not too much and not to little. Spouse had pizza it was good as well.

We checked into a nearby hotel after a long drive from Illinois. There are plenty of "franchise" places to eat in Norman Oklahoma but we wanted to find a local establishment. We were so lucky to find this place. Friendly staff and prompt service. We each ordered an individual size pizza, house salad and wine. It was excellent. Gabe, our... More

My son and I both had chicken parmesian. Chicken was so-so and the noodles were rubbery and huge from being overcooked and soaked too long. Did have some pretty good artichoke dip though. They were busy, so as long as I grabbed a waiter/waitress for attention it was ok. We'll find another place next time.

It's a nice place--inexpensive, located in a strip mall. Nice portions; fast service; friendly enough. Service is not the most attentive. Probably not worth a special trip.

Can't say enough good things about Gaberino's. If you are driving through Norman, time your meals for the day so you can eat a lunch or dinner there. :) A lot of the pastas are homemade - always my favorite. Their lasagna is good. The lemon butter sauce with fettuccini and veggies is divine. Their Alfredo isn't my favorite -... More

We went on a week night and were seated right away. Our server was great. He made sure we had what we needed and left us alone to enjoy our meal. He definitely knew the right balance of service. We ordered the Fettucine with meatballs and they were huge! Very tasty and the pasta was fresh. Our 2 year old... More

Not a chain. They have homemade dishes. All have been really good and I have tried a good number of them. Very small seating capacity but if you go a bit early for lunch or dinner or a late lunch, you shouldnt have a problem. Their cheese toast is really good with all their entrees.

I have eaten here solo on 3 occasions and each time I was impressed with the quality of the food. The pastas remind me of the pasta I ate during my 3.5 years sojourn in Sicily during the 90s. I think this chef must have been raised by a Sicilian, or at least, trained to cook by one. Everything I... More

I like the food at Gaberino's, my spouse does not. The service is fair, nothing special there. The atmosphere is also without note. What I like is the comfy, homestyle feel and the food, which is fresh and flavorful.
