    Went with wife and adult son to concert at The Space at Westbury, 2 blocks away. Looked for nice local place. We share everything, had three appetizers, pasta course, two entrees. Very nice bottle of wine (Masi Amarone) from well curated list and some pre dinner drinks. The best of old school Italian dining and ambiance. Fabulous Stuffed double veal chop special. Classic Eggplant Rollatini. Knowledgeable and friendly service. No problem with sharing dishes.

    We went to Galleria ,with great expectations, & left there feeling disappointed.Of the 5 people in our party,4 thought the food was good,while one (my husband) did not like or eat his main dish.He ordered scallops that tasted very bitter & found them to be inedible,after eating just one. . I brought them home,thinking I might like them,but when I reheated them the next day,I found that my husband was absolutely right.For the money we paid,we all agreed that any one of our tried-and-true restaurants would have provided an excellent(rather than just good)meal for the same price., My husband ordered a Napoleon for dessert & received only half of one ,along with a "complimentary" desset sampler, that was just ok .And the waiters never smiled.

    My husband and I re-visited The Galleria; we had our first date there 13 years ago. We had not been there since Dominick sold the place and new owners took over about three years prior. Still the same- nice atmosphere, good food. The only comment that we share is that we would like for the menu to change- we like to go to restaurants that stay fresh and new. The staff as always, was very professional and friendly. They knew that we were celebrating our anniversary and sent over a little cake with a very nice after-dinner drink. Everything is great here; you won't be disappointed, but as mentioned, we would like to see some new items or maybe the old items presented differently.

    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.

    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!

    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.
