I am a wedding planner in Sarasota and am so happy that my clients chose Cafe Gabbiano for their wedding reception. Marc and the staff are flexible, professional and amazing to work with!
The space is very versatile and can be transformed into any vision that you may have. I can't wait to work with Cafe Gabbiano again, thank you to everyone at the restaurant - you really made Mary Kate and Jeff's wedding one to remember!
We previously had a different restaurant for our reception location, but 3 weeks before our wedding they decided to give us problems about how they were going to accommodate our party (after accepting our deposit).
Cafe Gabbiano was more than welcoming to take our reservation with less than 3 weeks to go, and during a very busy season I might add. Including my husband and I, there were 16 of us total. They accommodated us in their middle area, and had it divided off to be private.
The food was absolutely delicious! The value was great too! It was very affordable, and we got so much more for what we paid than what we had planned at the previous restaurant. We got four appetizers (calamari, mussels, bruschetta & I think pickled eggplant), a salad, and then we had three separate dishes (fish, chicken & veal).
Cafe Gabbiano wedding event staff also cut our wedding cake up for us and served it. The servers at Cafe Gabbiano always made sure the glasses were filled, whether it was a glass of wine or a glass of water. The waiters were very nice as well, especially the one we had mostly for our party. We are so glad we ended up here for the reception. And the owners are incredibly sweet!
We had a small wedding of about 16 guest and had chosen their restaurant for our special event. I was very pleased with their services. The Cafe Gabbiano servers was excellent especially Alberto! They were very attentive to our needs, explained the dished very well, and also cut and served our cake.
The only thing that I would have changed would have been communication of the fee for the cut and serving of the cake. When I emailed them in regards to having our cake delivered, they stated that it wouldn't be a problem and that they would also cut and serve the cake.
Just would have been nice to know that they were gonna charge us for the extra service. But by far had a great time and if I had to do it again, I would have still chosen Cafe Gabbiano's!
Decided to do a wedding dinner following our beach side ceramony. Marc the event coordinator at Cafe Gabbiano was so helpful and patient throughout this process! The food was amazing, and staff was very helpful and friendly. The Cafe Gabbiano building itself is very intimate and lovely.
We went last night to Cafe Gabbiano for dinner and was pleasantly surprised by the staff, quality of the food and overall atmosphere. I had the veal and my husband had the red grouper special, both recommended by Tommy, who was very accommodating.
Cafe Gabbiano entrees were amazing and the overall service made me feel like I was on vacation-everybody constantly checked on us and the owner even came out to make sure that we were well taken care of. Would definitely recommend this place to anybody wanting a true, authentic Italian experience. We will definitely be back...BTW...the lemoncello....definitely a must-try!
