Diner Reviews
  • "The food was delicious and had great presentation. Our server forgot about us and seemed a little overwhelmed. However, the food made up for it."

  • "Galletto Ristorante has long been my go to place when I'm in the area and need something special. I've never had a bad experiance or been let down in any way by this establishment. Once again, they did a fine job in all respects. None in my group had been here before and I needed to find great place for us to gather....once again, the whole staff here made me look good with my choice. Thank you!"

  • "Took a group there. Found it to be a Very Good Spot for entertaining customers and associates. Food was good Service was very good."

  • "In a nutshell, the service was slow and pompous, the food was not good but not spectacular and the prices too high. The ambiance is really cool and it was a nice quiet evening. I won't return unless I am someone else's guest."

  • "This is not a great restaurant, it is a sad restaurant. It is a 'gourmet' restaurant that uses paper table linens and cheaply cutout sheets of papers as 'coasters'. The place is dead empty and the servers have a scared, paranoid look on their faces that implies they are moments away from being screamed at, or fired. The food looks like they tried to mimic the look of food they saw on the food channel, without marinating or adding flavor. Locating in that part of Downtown Modesto is the worst part as you are scared of being robbed at any moment. Parking is easy as there are no customers taking the spots. The corkage of $20 per bottle is insane for the region, especially with competitors at $4 to free within a few blocks."

  • "Galletto's has been a highly regarded restaurant here in Modesto for many years and my wife and I along with family and friends have enjoyed eating there on numerous occasions. We have always enjoyed the greatest of food and service and we have also enjoyed the quiet environment that has enabled us to converse with each other without having to contend with a noisy bar crowd or other loud and boisterous customers. Virtually all of our family members, friends and co-workers who have experienced Galletto's consistently voice the same pleasure and satisfaction that we have enjoyed."

  • "I love everything about this place. It is a bit pricey for everyday eating but worth it for a special day or just because."

  • "Our favorite pre-show at Gallo Center destination. We have never been disappointed with the service/food/cocktails over the years. Specials really showcase chef's talents. The patio dining is very nice weather permitting. The veal ragu on pasta is sensational...."

  • "This was a return visit after a couple of years away. I had hoped that my impression would be better this time around. I find the restaurant to be beautiful, quiet, pleasing to most of my senses, but once again I was disappointed with the food choice and cost. The Mahi Mahi was smaller than anticipated for the price and laid over just a few vegetables. My companion's margherita pizza was also disappointing by being dry. He had to add olive oil to eat to make it more palatable. Dessert was a chocolate souffle with salted carmel and coffee ice cream. The souffle was outstanding, and the ice cream delicious, but the six drops of salted carmel was very disappointing. I can appreciate presentation, but I expect more for the price."

  • "While it was openly stated that their menu changes on a regular basis, we had our heart set on an their steamed clams appetizer that was listed on the Open Table dinner menu. They had removed this item 3 days prior to our dinner reservation. We did not stay and eat, they no longer offered what we were looking for....."
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "The restaurant is very large. However, we were seated off the main dining room due to overcrowding. The food was excellent! However, in a fine dining restaurant you don't expect white paper placed over the linen tablecloth!! Poor taste! The owner is a Gallo Family member and should be informed that this is a poor decision on his part. That being said, the food was excellent!"

  • "Service was excellent. Special menu items were well described. the plates were warm and the food was hot. Good wine selection."

  • "We wanted a nice, quiet upscale restaurant in Modesto, CA (it's a good meeting place since we had people coming from Sacramento, Fresno & the Bay Area) for our Christams Eve dinner and this resturant fit the bill. Excellent customer service & good food. Recommend!"

  • "Three couples enjoyed a wonderful evening at this fabulous restaurant. Without making the request, they gave us the private dining room - The Gallo Family room - and it was perfect for a party of six - or even 10. The service was impeccable, the food was excellent. Our meals varied - salmon, lamb, filet mignon. Everyone raved and all were happy. We are all seasoned travelers and have dined at fine restaurants all over the world. I would put Gallettos up with the best anywhere. Not inexpensive, but worth the extra nickel. If you are looking for a special occasion - this is a great place to go. There is another larger private room to hold 20 something or so. Talk about feeling special. Yet, there is an easy ambiance, like home. Enjoy"

  • "The steaks were delicious and done to perfection. The turkey was excellent, moist and flavorful with mashed potatoes done just right. This was a wonderful experience with being greeted at the door to the service we received from our waitress."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "Took advantage of their prix fixe menu. Portions were generous, quality excellent. Ordered the fritto mixto appetizer which was tasty, but not needed because portions were generous. Dessert was acceptable, but not up to quality of the rest of the meal. I'd certainly consider this as a future holiday option."

  • "We had our 75th birthday party here for our Mother, what a great time for all, we also had 2 eight year olds, and they enjoyed themselves also! Our party was 11 guests, from food to service was top notch! Would recommend for any special occasion."

  • "The only complaint is the first bottle of wine we ordered, they did not have in their inventory."
    Dined on 11/10/2013
  • "Overall everything was great. I only have a couple of suggestions.: #1 when guests are enjoying eachothers company and engaging in animated conversation, refrain from interupting them and asking them if they are ready to order, over and over. #2 Most of the food was phenomenal. #3 Coffee was luke warm and had to be sent back. #4 The flourless chocolate cake was tiny and covered in salt. With an extra heap of salt on the side. I didn't complain but it was really terrible. At this point I was wondering if someone, (cook, food server), didn't like me. #5 Staff is very serious..... a smile and a little enthusiasm goes a long way :-)"

  • "I always love coming here. It is a bit on the pricier end, so you should expect your bill to be above $70 for two people , but it is worth it."

  • "Maitre d' barely acknowledge us when we walked in. We were not offered bread and had to ask for it after our food came."
    Dined on 10/28/2013
  • "Went to restaurant after initial visit 7 years ago. Setting and service staff are still excellent but the food list is a bit pretentious. Just as I remembered from last time. Risotto was OK but thought I was ordering handstuffed sausage and got beef instead. A disappointment. We will not be back."

  • "Wonderful time. Seated the minute we got there. The food is perfect. The service was the best! Love it."
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "After a few less-than-desirable dining experiences, my wife and I decided to stop coming here altogether. Then, we met some friends at the patio bar a month or so ago, and had such a great time we thought we'd try it out again. We weren't disappointed. Our waitress was funny and incredibly friendly. Food was fast and perfectly prepared (best Ribeye I've had in a while!), and the atmosphere was more friendly than stuffy. We'll definitely be back."

  • "We had a marvelous time. The dinner and drinks were fantastic and so was desert. Couldn't ask for a better atmosphere. We enjoy our romantic nights out without the kids and Gallettos is now our favorite spot for these or any other special occasions."
    Dined on 10/12/2013
  • "Overall a great experience. Small details made the experience even better - such as special menus that said happy birthday and free glasses of champagne to celebrate the occasion. The waiter forgot to bring a side item that was ordered but was appropriately apologetic. We would go there again."

  • "Upon making reservation I was very surprised and impressed that our menu was "personalized". It made the bday evening that more special for my wife.bdaywkend Atmosphere was great for a dinner of two. This was our first time there and will be back for a nice dinner with my wife. We had had a good first time experience at Gelletto's. Thanks to your staff!"
