  • "We were a table of six, and each entree ordered did not disappoint. (Grouper, Chicken stuffed with seafood, and a stuffed Veal Chop were among the specials ordered). Everything was fresh and well prepared. Our waiter was gracious, accommodating and efficient. When one guest asked if there was butter on the veggies, the waiter quickly returned with a plate of steamed veggies. Nice amenities as well - a plate of biscotti's with cantaloupe and a complimentary small glass of homemade pepermint-chello to end the meal. A great dining experience - and we were not at all rushed."

The menu offers plenty for all to choose from, and the dishes can be changed to suit certain tastes. The owners are delightful. We have dined here on many occasions and always have a wonderful experience."

  • "Our waiter waited an hour after we ordered to tell us that they didn't have what one of us ordered-not acceptable. When we told the owner he apologized and did nothing-not acceptable. The food was mediocre at best and the noise level was way too high. We will never go back!"

  • "Met a friend for dinner after my husband suggested Galleria after a business group dinner meeting. Met the owner chef at the bar who seemed very sociable. I requested a nice table on Open Table and we were led to a lovely corner table ready with some tasty hors d'oeuvres. Our waiter was old school elegant. My burrata appetizer was creamy & delicious and they had no problem accommodating me by adding some prosciutto! Veal Osso bucco was fork tender and tasty! Our friend said his Chilean Sea a Bass was very good. The bus boys always made sure our glasses were replenished with sparkling water and wine. Look forward to going back again soon!"

  • "The food was really poor...everything was either overcooked, or covered in sauce. The service was rushed, and not pleasant. We met the owner/chef, and he seemed very nice, but that didn't make up for the food."

  • "I cannot decide which was worse, the food of the service. The pumpkin ravioli tasted more like dessert. They were out of tartufo. One person was still eating and his plate was removed."

  • "went on Saturday night with party of 6 with no expectations -- just looking for place near music fair. the menu was extensive and there were some interesting specials (listen carefully as there were many!). Everyone was quite pleased with the find and enjoyed their dinner. We were seated in an alcove next to the piano which was a nice bonus."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "If you are looking for a restaurant experience from 30 years ago...then this is the place. Very traditional Italain menu, with 10 veal dishes all prepared the same way with a different same, retro appetizers, desserts, cool bread basket and pasta dishes a mobster would love. Nothing "special" going on in the kitchen here and a lot of prep - freezer - thaw - cook strategies, but there is nothing you will not like, if you leave your upscale Manhattan expectations in Manhattan. HOWEVER - the service is perfect in every way. Old school, quick, friendly but skilled and sincere. Expect a flawless experience in the dining room from A-Z from the welcome at the door to the Chef coming out to greet every table. This is where my 4 stars comes from."

  • "we have been coming to this restaurant 30 years now. we have seen through 2 ownerships. I aleays enjoy my meal. I thi.k their stuffed veal chop is outstanding. my husband and friend opted for the grouper they were disppointed. my friends husband had the veal oso buco and said it was tops. As I always say I've never had a bad meal here. .I must admit I do miss the blitva (swiss chard or escarole with mashed potatoes, Croatian style) of days gone past, and the vegtable side for four of us was a touch skimpy but what can you do. All in all it's a nice night out and a nice special occasion place to dine at. lets not forget to mention the wait staff who is always on top of their game and makes everyone feel like family."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "The decor is very elegant Italian. The Food is superb. From the clams, Grilled Octopus and the Galleria Chopped Salad all were perfect. The main dishes of Osso Bucco, Swordfish Matriiciana, and the Pounded Veal Chop all were cooked perfectly. We are only sorry that on this visit we didn't stay for dessert."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "My husband and I have been coming to this restaurant for well over fifteen years and the menu has changed but the service, food & ambience have not changed at all. This time we brought our kids and a good time was had by all."

  • "quality of the food was good however the portions were small."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "Chef/owner visited tables to ask about our meals and was very affable. The four meals at our table were all different and each was wonderfully prepared and presented. Their wine corking fee was extremely fair and different glasses were brought to the table when our second bottle was opened. Will definitely be back to Westbury to enjoy another fine dining experience"
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "Very good traditional Italian cuisine -- fresh salads, entrees were just so. We were most pleased with the service -- waiters were efficient, unobtrusive but always available, and quite formal. A welcome change from the ubiquitous "I'm so-and-so, and I'll be your waiter" patter of wait staff who come across as overly familiar. As far as bang for the buck, it was a little on the pricey side. Four salads, four entrees, two glasses of wine and two sodas, and three coffees came to $240 including a 20% tip. So, just a fair value, but a very good dining experience."

  • "I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and we were treated like royalty! We ordered the mozzarella caprese (a true test of how good an Italian restaurant is!) and it was fantastic. We are vegetarian, and when we told the waiter, he was extremely helpful in helping us substitute some items on the menu that had meat in them. They had great sized portions, and the food was to die for. This is definitely some place I would recommend and take my family and friends to!"

  • "Galleria has to be one of the finest restaurants we have ever eaten in. As we entered, we noticed that the owner is a member of the prestigeous Chaine de Rotisseurs which impressed us. We knew from there on that we were in for a great dining experience. The place has a lot of "Old World Charm' that is supported by the fine staff. The menu is varied and has something for everyone. The food was beautifully presented and had wonderful flavors. The portions were very generous. The atmosphere allowed us to have a conversation, without shouting, a rare find these days, a quiet restaurant. There are many reasons why Galleria has such a long success record and we are lucky to have an establishment like it here on Long Island."
