We Make Italian Because We Are Italian


Family Recipes from Krebs to Oklahoma City.

A Family tradition

Our family has been serving traditional Italian cuisine in a relaxed family environment since 1953. Originally from Italy, my ancestors first migrated to the Oklahoma Territory in 1895 to seek work in the coal mining industry. My great grandfather, Jim Giacomo provided well for his family until his untimely death, leaving his wife, my granny Rose, as sole provider for their seven children. Granny cooked pasta, fried chicken, and even brewed a homemade beer, one of the original recipes for Choc, which she sold to people who came to eat in her home. This tradition was continued when her youngest son, Dominic and his his sister Minnie opened the Isle of Capri on Mother’s Day in 1953. The restaurant’s name was inspired by Dom’s time in the Navy where he was stationed in Italy off the island of the same name.

In 2003 I opened the first Gabriella’s Italian Grill and Pizzeria in South Padre Island along with my family and my best friend Alyce. It was a bit of a struggle at first. We had leapt into an entirely new demographic 800 miles from anyone who knew what we were about. But our dedication, our passion to food has made us one of the premiere destination restaurants in South Texas. We were the first restaurant in the Rio Grande Valley to serve traditional wood-fired pizza and have a reputation as one of the premiere restaurants south of San Antonio. In 2009 we said goodbye to Alyce when she succumbed to pancreatic cancer, and after her loss South Padre simply wasn’t the same; It was time for a change. It was time to bring what we’d learned home to Oklahoma City.

Originally built in 1938 as a speakeasy known as the Kentucky Club, the County Line has a long and colorful history–a perfect venue for my family to continue to learn and grow while joining the ranks of Oklahoma City’s wonderful restaurant scene. For nearly 60 years my family has been in the restaurant business and we’ve been delighting appetites with homemade food for even longer. We take great pride in our recipes, which are prepared fresh every day. From our table to yours, we wish to give you an unforgettable dining experience.

Mongia,

Chef Vicki and Famiglia – Duane, Michael, Brandon, Ashton, Tony, and Staff.

Authentic Wood-Charred Pizza


Traditional Brick Oven Pies

When we set out to make pizzas, we wanted to do it right. We wanted the right ingredients and the right tools that could allow us to make a product that we could be proud of. To that end, our restaurant features a brick oven by Mugnaini Imports, a company that has specialized in hearth cooking since 1989. Our oven is fired exclusively with seasoned oak, and is the first of it’s kind in Oklahoma. There’s no gas connection to our brick oven, which means if there’s no wood, there’s no fire.  The average internal temperature of our brick oven is  700°F, and we burn roughly 400 lbs. of oak a day to maintain that heat. The product result is a pizza with a crispy, slightly charred crust with a slightly smoky flavor.

But our oven isn’t the only thing that makes our pizzas extraordinary. Our pizza dough is made fresh everyday with Antico Molino Caputo flour for its 100% natural 12 percent gluten content that allows the dough to rise to an airy texture that still packs a crunch. Combined with our from-scratch pizza sauces and hand carved and fresh grated cheeses, the result is a pizza that is heavy on flavor, not on your stomach.

Ask your server if you can see the oven in action. We’re more than happy to give you a tour.

Be Together


Come and Share Our Table

In spite of our differences there is one thing that every culture shares: we all have to eat; and we love to eat together. We break bread with each other as symbols of peace, in ceremonies of cooperation, and as celebrations of love and joy.

Food is a passion for our family, and we love sharing that passion with Oklahoma City with handmade pastas, sauces, sausage, meatballs, and ravioli. We grate and shred our own cheeses, we carve our own meats, we even pick our own herbs when it is possible to do so. We don't just care about food. We love food. And we want to share our food with you.

When we share our table with you, we want it to be a celebration. We want you to feel at home. We're happy to see you come over, and we want you to stay and enjoy yourself. That's why we've devoted a lot of thought and effort to the ambiance of our establishment.

Want a romantic dinner? Our private dining nooks are perfect for you and your date. Want to experience a rauncous night on the town with friends in a relaxed public house setting? Our bar and Mead Hall Table is the place for you. Wherever you choose to dine with us, we want you to understand that we view your experience as entertainment.  Good food takes time and we want to devote that time to your experience.

located at one of Oklahoma city's historic haunts

Gabriella's is located in the Adventure District of Oklahoma City at 1226 NE 63rd St. Our restaurant was the original site of the Kentucky Club in 1939, and was opened by Kentucky transplants Tony and Winnie Bell Marneres. The location was far out in the country and a well known gambling den, dance hall, and speakeasy. The original building burned in 1949 and reopened as the Ramada Club. Due to our restaurant's colorful past we have a reputation of being a haunted site in America, and frequently host paranormal investigator groups looking to record strange phenomenon. But don't worry, folks. We save the ghost hunting for after hours!
