I would much rather say nice things about restaurants and have superior meals than focus on the negatives and feel our money and time could have been better spent. Sometimes, you need to do both to be honest. On a mid-September Friday evening Gabbiano filled with mostly well dressed regulars-anticipating pleasant meals and being greeted with suitable friendship. The restaurant's... More

Lovely little place, serves excellent, nicely prepared food. In a little town noted for its busy night life, this little place retains a peaceful relaxed atmosphere.

We had dinner last Saturday evening with some friends at "Il Gabbiano", which is located near Alassio's pier, on a street packed with many restaurants. The place looks pretty simple and does not give the impression of actually being a very fine restaurant. Anyway, that is perhaps the only negative aspect with the "Gabbiano". Menu is short and stands on... More

The restaurant is the best in Alassio! There are only 2 such places. The service and food at the bestest quality. We have ordered 2 menues for 37 each one that included 3 sets each and desserts. Also we have had the best ever wine Umberto by Francesco I. The level of cooking, service was amazing. The only one negative... More

We still have nice things to say about this restaurant, but our most recent experience was a little uneven. The ambiance is nearly elegant; the place settings attractive; the welcome correct. Elbow to elbow with a lot of more basic restaurants and pizzerias close to the Molo, clearly the objective is to represent a more formal and sophisticated option. But... More

Il Gabbiano's relative position on TA's listings make no sense. This is one of a handful of high quality restaurants in Alassio with attentive and gracious service, fine cooking and an exemplary wine list. Your dinner could be expensive, especially if you opt for fresh fish, but you can be assured that the cooking will be skillful and the presentation... More

We found this place while walking near the beach. The restaurant at night looks beautiful and cozy. We were welcomed by a lady that is actually the owner. We received very good advices on the food and wine. We had a pata negra as a starter followed by superb Spaghetti Vongole, great Paccheri with baby octopus and excellent scampi in... More

Il Gabbiano is undoubtedly my favourite restaurant in Alassio. The food is always excellently sourced, prepared and presented by head chef Paolo and his team and his wife Barbara is probably the friendliest host you will meet in any restaurant in the world - Even in a country as welcoming as Italy. Needless to say her team of waiters share... More
