    Dined here for the first time . Not knowing how popular/busy the Gambi's might be, I made a reservation through OpenTable. The staff member seating us did not even look at the reservation list. I received the seated confirmation email from OpenTable on Friday, for that Tuesday reservation . For the entire 1.5 hours we were in Gambi's, no other diners arrived. This was telling ! Several misses on the whole evening. With essentially no one else to serve, the waiter was Very Unattentive. The appetizer (calamari) was served hot and was delicious. Dinner entrees arrived too quickly, evidencing that the waiter was not paying attention to our progress on the appetizer. Entree quantity, quality and flavor was good, but not exceptional. We were over charged for red wine, but did not notice it until after leaving the restaurant. I will not return to Gambi's.

    We went to Gambi’s be cause it was highly recommended for the quality of their Italian food. The menu descriptions sounded good, but what we received was not what was described. My husband ordered calamari which said it came with marinara sauce & a garlic aoli sauce, but arrived with only marinara sauce. We had to ask for the aoli . I got lasagna which said it was made with a bechamel and bolognese sauce. Bolognese sauce is a meat-based sauce in Italian cuisine. It is customarily used to prepare lasagne . Their lasagne came with marina sauce and a sprinkle of meat inside the layers of pasta. We have a number of very good Italian restaurants in Reno, but this one isn’t among them.

    Three of us ordered chicken piccata. Two of our dinners were cold and when we let the waiter know he took them back and when he brought them out again they were warm. That was disappointing because meals should always be served at temperatures above luke warm. The piccata sauce was also lacking flavor. Another person ordered rigatoni with meatballs and the center of her meatballs was cold. Our waiter was very good and friendly; he had a super great attitude. The bruschetta was amazing!

    We love the food and ambiance, however, they only have one server who also works the bar. Consequently we actually had to go get him to order dessert to go and get our checks. He is a great server, fun and professional. It isn’t his fault that the owner has him doing everything.

    This was our first time at this Pirate themed Italian restaurant. My spaghetti and meatballs tasted like I was back in Italy.,my husband said his fettuccine Alfredo was better than at our usual Italian restaurant. Our ever and bartender, Carlos was great as was all the staff. We were delighted to receive a visit from Chef Donato. I think we just found our new favorite Italian restaurant.

    We had a reservation for 5:00 pm which is early but we were greeted and seated right away. There were about 5 other couples seated. They had beautiful piano music playing at a perfect level. Each one of us ordered appetizers, mushrooms, calamari, Caprese salad, pear salad and beet salad. Calamari was cooked perfect, very tender. Mushrooms were delicious. Our friends each raved about their salads. My husband had the flat iron steak medium rare. Cooked perfect. It was served with fresh asparagus spears. I had the spaghetti and meatballs. Sauce was good, would have liked a little more. The 2 meatballs were very dense, flavor was good. Our friends shared the Linguine Pescatora. Our waiter split the plate for them. Gave them each a very nice portion. Our friends said it was excellent and would have again. Also, had the garlic bread was very good. While eating the chef Donato came by our table and asked about our meals. Enjoyed a nice chat with him. We all shared a tiramisu, that was awesome! We all can recommend Gambi’s and will dine again.

    Chef D has been on board for a a couple months. The food quality has exponentially improved. The red sauces are amazing. I recently had the fettuccine with chicken and it was delicious. The last two times we dined at Gambi’s, the place was packed. It’s nice to see they are finally figuring out what works.

    We had friends from CA and decided to give this place a try. It was great! We all enjoyed our meals. Chef Donato came out and introduced himself he is from Rome! Carlos our server was great as well! The food was excellent and we all enjoyed the dishes we ordered. Arincini, stuffed mushrooms were our starters. I had the fetticini Alfredo it was creamy and delicious! My friend had the chicken Marcella and said it was great. I can’t believe this place is in my neighborhood and I just tried it! We will go back!

    Right in the heart of Somersett. This restaurant has a new chef and new menu that is wonderful. The staff is fantastic and attentive. They have a great wine list and the bartender makes great cocktails. I am surprised that they are not busier than they are having such high quality food and staff.

    First time at Gambi’s so we weren’t sure what to expect. Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service was spot on. We were told they have a new chef and apparently this chef is on his/her game. We ordered calamari to start - very good and fresh - not the rubbery chewy versions you get in so many restaurants. I ordered Cioppino as mains and it was excellent-good amount of seafood and fish in a flavorful tomato base. My husband ordered the scallops and they were very well prepared and very tasty. Good sized portions too. We will return

    I was vey disappointed with Gambi’s This place is very pricy for what they serve for their food. They don’t offer any extras as far as soup, salad or bread. The meatball for the appetizer and in the spaghetti had no flavor they were very bland. We will not be back.

    They didn’t have ANY of the draft beers advertised on menu & only some of the bottled beers, didn’t have coffee for desert. Background music a little too loud. Appetizers, were excellent, dinner was good, desert was dismal. Whole experience was not worth the high price.

    Usually very good food here, and this trip was as expected. We shared crab cakes (excellent), and had the lasagna, and the chicken parm, both very nice. One small complaint: Normally we are there on Saturday evenings. This was a Sunday, and instead of the garlic bread they normally serve on Saturdays, it was just a generic, flat tasting sliced loaf. Service was as always very good.

    I gave them two stars because the new Server Michael on his fist day raised it to that. Let me start! Beet salad was great. The fried Calamari came out of a box and tasted like that. I had the seafood Cioppino' soup was basically a jar of pasta sauce and they added some shrimp clams and mussels to it! Not a soup at all just some sauce without any crab! The wife had mushroom pasta and it was Ok? The bar is the only thing that will keep this place alive!

    Gambi’s closed an hour prior to our reservation and did not alert us. We wasted an hour driving to and from this restaurant on our weekend getaway that could have been better spent elsewhere had we been given the courtesy to know the restaurant would be closing early due to weather (weather that we subjected ourselves to for nothing that we otherwise could have avoided). Spend your money and time elsewhere at a restaurant that cares more about its customers.
