Ordered the veggie lasagna. Couldn't find the veggies. All mozzarella and no ricotta. Stringy and chewy to eat. Light pasta but couldn't find it in the mountain of cheese. Colleague ordered shrimp scampi. Big bowl of spaghetti with a few shrimp on top. Don't go to find anything light on the menus.

Gave hostess our name and was told wait would be about 10 minutes. Sat directly in front of host checkin station. After waiting 10 minutes, another party of two came in and was told there was a wait. The next thing we see is a waitress grab them and completely ignore the fact we were sitting right in front of... More

There are several little pasta spots in Norman, OK and none of them are bad, but Gaberino's is hands down the best. The spaghetti and meatballs cant be beat, and the place has a wonderful romantic ambiance to it. The service was top notch and the food delicious. My wife and I have made Gaberino's our go to pasta spot.

5 stars! The food here will blow you away, excellent healthy portions, flavorful, friendly staff ... the best Italian in town, no doubt! We've been twice now and it does not disappoint. This will be a once-a-week or every other week place for sure! Give it a try!!!

Hidden from the main roads within a shopping center is this little Italian restaurant I had the chicken Parmesan and it was good, nice tasty crust on the chicken. Marinara sauce was good; hearty and thick. Well portioned as well. Not too much and not to little. Spouse had pizza it was good as well.

We checked into a nearby hotel after a long drive from Illinois. There are plenty of "franchise" places to eat in Norman Oklahoma but we wanted to find a local establishment. We were so lucky to find this place. Friendly staff and prompt service. We each ordered an individual size pizza, house salad and wine. It was excellent. Gabe, our... More

My son and I both had chicken parmesian. Chicken was so-so and the noodles were rubbery and huge from being overcooked and soaked too long. Did have some pretty good artichoke dip though. They were busy, so as long as I grabbed a waiter/waitress for attention it was ok. We'll find another place next time.

It's a nice place--inexpensive, located in a strip mall. Nice portions; fast service; friendly enough. Service is not the most attentive. Probably not worth a special trip.

Can't say enough good things about Gaberino's. If you are driving through Norman, time your meals for the day so you can eat a lunch or dinner there. :) A lot of the pastas are homemade - always my favorite. Their lasagna is good. The lemon butter sauce with fettuccini and veggies is divine. Their Alfredo isn't my favorite -... More

We went on a week night and were seated right away. Our server was great. He made sure we had what we needed and left us alone to enjoy our meal. He definitely knew the right balance of service. We ordered the Fettucine with meatballs and they were huge! Very tasty and the pasta was fresh. Our 2 year old... More
