Since I now live in Orlando, my trips to Springfield ALWAYS include one dinner at my favorite pizza place, Gabatoni's. This thin crust pizza has been a family favorite since my childhood in the sixties. In the past two years, this place has been beyond crowded so plan to go early or wait for up to an hour for a...

Here’s the thing about Gabatoni’s… It’s a tight space on a weekend, it still feels like you’re about 60 years back in time, it’s still a family owned joint, and it has the BEST pizza ever! The SIDE door is the main entrance, not the one on the end of the building. If you’ve never been there, you’ll walk in... More

Very popular Italian restaurant in Springfield IL. Like going to your aunts home for lunch. Staff is friendly and service oriented. Place is unassuming and old but once again has been there forever. Not in a nice part of town but perfectly safe to visit. I ordered the spaghetti with meat sauce, garlic bread and the additional meatballs and ice... More

I can remember my parents getting Gabby's pizza when I was a kid. Nothing like it in town. It was the first place we went after moving back to Springfield. Our go to pie is the EBA (enerything but anchovies) 16" and sometimes there's none left to take home. It's a Springfield landmark as far as I'm concerned. Get there... More

We ordered pizza last night. It was the worst pizza we have ever had. It was burnt, hardly any sauce and the toppings were not cooked. The quality was not worth for what we payed.
