First time here, I visited as recommended by friends. Well the restaurant itself boring and dead, zero atmosphere it’s like I’m in a unfinished restaurant, tight, I’m talking about single section anyway. Food bit pricey but was tasty and fresh, service was great too. Some...of our orders in the pictures.More

One of the best Italian food I've tried. Their steak and pasta is to die for coupled by beautiful ambience and good service delivered by a multinational team mostly Filipino. Will go back again.

Gabbiano is a nice enough Italian restaurant. We ordered Quattro Formaggio, Chicken Escalope, Nagro and a bottle of Evian water. SR256. To be honest, for what we expected we were disappointed, we had been told it was fine dining but just didn't make the grade....Service was reasonable.More

The food was tasty and good size portions. Decent selection on there menu. No gluten-free options ( not for me personally) speaking in general Service was very good! Only 1 bad remark & I left it with the Restaurant Manager....

Very nice restaurant. A bit more expensive but you get what you pay for. The gentle music helped create a very nice athmosphere.

High quality atmosphere, great service and tasty food, recommend the fettuccine and grilled salmon. For me best Italian in Riyadh.

I went last Saturday with my family to have lunch. The decoration is nice, family section upper floor either by left or using stairs. Not crowded if you like quite atmosphere. The waiters don't bother you while eating between courses. Good food, I recommend risotto.
