Gabriele Ambrosetti (born 7 August 1973) is a former Italian footballer who played as a winger.

Born in Varese, he played for several Italian sides, including Brescia and Vicenza, before signing for English club Chelsea for £3.5m in August 1999. He arrived as, according to his manager, Gianluca Vialli, the 'Italian Ryan Giggs', but struggled to live up to the tag and in four years made only a handful of appearances. He made his Chelsea debut as a sub in a 1 0 home win against Aston Villa. The only goal he scored for Chelsea was in a 5 0 win against Galatasaray in Istanbul in the UEFA Champions League. He was spotted in a Cup Winners Cup Semi Final by Chelsea against Vicenza in April 1998.
