    My mom and I were in town for Mother’s Day and visited Gambinos for an early Mother’s Day dinner. Parking was a challenge but we were in and out in about an hour but never felt rushed by the staff. They were friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious. (This bread sticks are incredible!!!) I enjoyed the chicken Parmesan and my mom had the spaghetti. The portions were great sizes and the prices were reasonable. Great experience!! (Especially for someone from out of town)

    This was my first time eating here, and I can't believe it took us so long. Our server Sarah was great. She told us the special and gave wine and food recommendations which were quite useful. We had the artichokes for an appetizer. I had the lasagna while my husband had the taste of Italy for our entrées. All of it was great! We can't wait to take out of town guest next time they come to visit. The portions are plenty big, enough for lunch leftovers the next day. The atmosphere was cozy and comfortable. My son tried my lasagna leftovers and wants to go, so we'll be back soon!

    From the moment we stepped into Gambino's Italian Grill, located in Alabama, it was clear we were in for a vibrant evening filled with delectable surprises. Having ventured from the Saint Louis Metro Area, our expectations were exceeded by not just the food, but the charming atmosphere that’s perfect for families and celebrations alike. The energy in the restaurant was infectious, and it set the stage for an unforgettable engagement dinner. "Incredible" barely scratches the surface when describing the mastery behind their culinary creations—every bite conveyed the freshness and passion put into their food. Adding to the already lively ambiance was a bartender whose skill at crafting drinks was only matched by his ability to make our wait for a table enjoyable. The cocktails were not just refreshing but also beautifully balanced to perfection. Our server, Tiffany, deserves a special shout out for her attentiveness and professionalism. She navigated our celebration with such finesse that we felt taken care of in a way that was both familial and impeccable. Her service was a significant part of why our dining experience was so extraordinary. We cannot overstate the impact that Gambino's had on our special night. Leaving Alabama with full hearts and sated appetites, we are already planning our next visit. It's rare to find a place that not only meets but surpasses your dining expectations—Gambino's Italian Grill is that rare gem. We'll definitely be returning, and we encourage anyone who finds themselves in Alabama to stop by and allow the team at Gambino's to create a memorable experience for them, too. Thank you, Gambino's, for making our celebration not just a meal, but a treasured memory.

    Wow, what a great place. Can't believe it's taken me this long to visit. Drove an hr to check out Gambinos. 1st impressions upon entering was a cool spot with lots of history. Menu has something for everyone. Almost too many options if that's possible. We ended up starting with the fried eggplant fries with marinara and fried mushrooms. Both were delicious. Salad and bread were fresh. Sirloin and grilled shrimp were spot on, and my 24oz Prime Rib was maybe the best I've ever had. We both will opt for a different side than the steak fries on our next visit. Service was on point, and the amount and quality of food received were very well priced. Can't wait to visit again.

    Fantastic service. Had crab claws, mozzarella with prosciutto, seafood Palermo, and Chicken zingari. Our Server was informative and helpful. We had tiramisu and limoncello marscapone cheesecake. Everything was fantastic. Can get a little loud when it fills up. Luckily they did put up some soundproofing on the ceiling that helped a lot. Get there early. Not sure if they take reservations. We will definitely revisit when we return to the area.
