    The ambiance inside the restaurant was good however when we were there (Friday evening) the bar was very noisy - the music was loud as well as the patrons who were obviously drinking. It would be better to have a barier noise between the bar and the restaurant to make it sound proofed. The service was great and prompt, I may have ordered a wrong dish (John Dory grilled fish); the fish was salty; the salad that comes with it was mediocre and 1 skinny piece of Lemon.. i was expecting the presentation and taste to be more appealing and special, fish was dry - nothing special really. Maybe try another dish next time - but won’t be in the near future.

    Staff were friendly and polite, a lovely restaurant, there were plenty of tables but unfortunately all of the patrons weren't spaced out, so not so private, apart from that the food was delicious and fresh. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Beautiful food, excellent service, went for our wedding anniversary. I do think the tables for 2 people are very wide and therefore not as intimate as I would've liked. Other than that, couldn't fault it.

    It has been too long since we last dined at Gambaro’s. The fresh seafood, specially the seafood platter for two, is magnificent. Service was subtle and unobtrusive; professionally conducted.
