If you're looking for fresh and delicious fish, this is the place. Very generous portions as well. Plus for families, they have a kids menu. Service was also great, will definitely come back and can recommend it!

Great salad and lovely fish and the staff could not have been better. It started to rain half way through our meal and the staff came and moved us to a dry table

Visited il Gambero for the first time and surely will not be may last. The food and the service was great. The pasta is to die for. To top it all the view from the balcony is so relaxing and romantic. Highly recommend.
