Good Food, but ..............
I've been to Gypsys three times and the first two times were great. On the third night, our dishes were mediocre. Normally, I wouldn't complain but the food was so off that I decided to bring it to the attention of the manager. Standing in front of me was a young man who was asking the manager it he had been served the correct food. The manager exploded, called the young man a N...ger and looked as if he was going the strike the young man. I was so stunned at the manager (who I've learned is also the owner) that my wife and I paid the bill (without eating the food) and left. Other patrons left as well. Every restaurant in entitled to a couple of off nights for food, but the owner/manager's attitude was inexcusable. My wife and I will never eat there again.
Great food, good price!.
My favorite dish is the Gypsy's Chicken (with garlic and pasta). It is flavorful and delicious! The food portions are generous. I've ordered the Calzone which can easily be two meals. Can get pretty busy so best to avoid the usual lunch hours.
BEST ITALIAN FOOD IN BERKLEY AT THE BEST PRICE!.
You get a big plate of pasta for less than $7 and ithe pasta taste really good! If you want to eat really good for a good price then go there, you wont be disappointed.
the (2nd) best italian food in the bay area.
After Coppola's restaurant in SF. But this comes as a close second. I just love this place, I have taken many friends there and they've all loved it. The food is very tasty, it's a popular place with students (close to Cal) which adds to the ambiance. Food is cheap, minimal service but the food makes up for it. One of my favourite restaurants in the bay area.
