Meet The Neighbors: Gamberetti’s Albany

Meet The Neighbors: Gamberetti’s Albany
June 4, 2019 Lise Grato

When Gamberetti’s owners Treva and David Gambs looked to expand, they found the inviting, iconic spot near the Ellsworth Bridge a perfect fit for a Downtown Albany location

As with their original Downtown Salem location, they wanted to create a place that they themselves would go to.

“Someplace warm and affordable; a place that you could often go to with friends, family, or even on date night, said Treva. “This is why we choose fresh and local foods, farms, and wineries.”

Treva isn’t new to the restaurant business. Her restaurant in Victoria, BC gave her the passion for this kind of great food. Her place was just outside of town nestled within the farming community. Daily produce deliveries from neighboring farms sculpted a wide range of new specials using whatever was in season. What once was a small tea room outside the city grew into a hugely successful restaurant.

Even before everything started going green, sustainability proved it’s importance within her establishment. Scraps were sent out to pig farmers and recycling properly sorted. “These are things we still strive for at Gamberetti’s,” added David

Gamberetti’s Albany is open seven days a week serving lunch, dinner and an early/late happy hour menu. They are also open for brunch on family holidays and offer catering.

They serve classic Italian entrees, seafood, appetizers and desserts in an upscale bistro atmosphere. Favorite dishes include Chicken Picatta, Misto Mare Alfredo, and Gamberetti Scampi. They offer a selection of local wine, beer and have a full bar. Their Lemoncello Drop is an Italian twist on an old favorite.

Treva’s catering portfolio has covered everything from small weddings to Arch Bishop Tutu and the prime minister. With over 30 years of experience feeding family, friends, and countless strangers, she can cater any event to customer needs.

“We hope to bring these customers joy while sharing our love for food!” commented Treva.
