    So we have been to la galleria33 about five times now and love it!!! But this last time was not so great. We had gone with another couple and when we arrived for our reservation we were told they over booked I didn't think to much about it until we waited an hour and a half for our food!! When it finally arrived my friend and I ordered tge same meal and it was gross! It was veal in a vodka sauce. The breasting in the veal was like scrambled eggs and very spongy. They were nice enough to get us new dishes and free glass of wine! I was impressed with that also my husband and friend were offered free sambuca shots while they wait for tge girls new dishes I really liked how they handled the situation and I will definitely go back one more time

    A pleasant enough restaurant in this great district. Smiling and attentive service. However the food was lacking in flavour and expensive for what it was. Minestrone soup and their special penne pasta with veal both tasted bland although the quality of the ingredients was clearly good. Disappointing. But at least it was not noisy there as tables well spaced and the open front makes it nice and cool in warm weather.

    My wife and I chose La Galleria 33 for our anniversary. The overall experience was perfect. All the employees were friendly and attentive, the food was delicious, and the prices were very reasonable. Using Open Table was very helpful, as it was a busy Saturday night and people that did not have a reservation were looking at an hour wait. We highly recommend La Galleria 33.

    This place obviously got over any "Kitchen Nightmare" it may have had. We celebrated a birthdy there on Friday 10/10 and arrived half an hour earlier than anticipated. While crowded, we got seats quickly. Service was awesome, attentive, knowledgable and fun. Our waitress offered menu suggestions that lived up to her hype. We were with our two kids (10 and 12) and they found numerous dishes to their liking as well. La Galleria 33 was very crowded with a large party that night which slowed the kitchen down a bit; however, our waitress was excellent in communicating the wait time. Once it arrived, all 4 entrees where exceptionally good and proved to be a nice twist on some classic Italian menu items. Great Food. Great Atmosphere. Bravo.

    The food was terrific, but the service was very, very slow! We know it was a busy night and the server came up to tell us, but some type of reward for how long we waited for our main courses (1 hour!) would have been nice. Perhaps consider a free appetizer, glass of wine, or dessert in the future, if the service can't get faster?

    The restaurant is warm and service was friendly. We did, however, sit for a bit (10 minutes or so) before were even given menus and service thereafter was a bit slow, though not terrible. It was obvious everything was cooked to order, as everything was hot and fresh. Bread is typical white French/Italian bread with a nice white bean puree for dipping. Garden salad was eh, with lots of iceberg lettuce, but the creamy dressing was very good. We had Chicken Parm and Chicken Buona Boca. both of which were very good. Skipped dessert/coffee, which was the plan anyway, but we found it interesting that no one ever offered. Just got a "are you all set?" and we confirmed we were ready for the bill.

    Due to an accident on 24, we arrived late for our reservation. When I asked about how long the wait would be, the hostess/owner said she didn't know/"hard to say". She seemed angry to be so busy and I saw a lot of people leave frustrated with that. The service was so slow. It took over 15 minutes to get our wine and the food took a long time to come out. We enjoyed our food, but when we asked for fresh parm, the waitress brought over a tiny dish of grated parm that didn't look fresh & wasn't enough for the 4 people at our table. It was also incredibly loud. The sound doesn't carry well and you could barely hear the music. We won't be back. Plenty of options in NE where you won't be treated like a nuisance & can have a better experience.

    The food here was excellent. I went on a Sunday evening with my husband and two children, ages 9 and 12. We had the antipasto, which was delicious, as were the crab cakes, for an appetizer. I had the lasagna, which was excellent; my husband had the veal cacciatore - it was delicious - very fresh... the veal was superb. My kids had chicken parmigiana and veal with penne, again, both were delicious. The server was very attentive. Now the bad news: It is very hot in the left side of the restaurant; there is an open kitchen, it was uncomfortably hot in the dining area. Also, took OVER AN HOUR to get our meal. Something about a delay due to a large party. The food was great when it finally did arrive, so we let it go.

    Chose place due to appearance on Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares show. Ambiance was "busy"--it was Sat night w/lots of tourists about. My lady had the Filetto Livornese (Cod) minus anchovies, & I had the Asparagus & Black Truffle Risotto & Seafood Ravioli. Cod was cooked perfectly & adorned w/toms, capers & blk olives--quite tasty. The accompanying penne was disappointing--obviously box w/a mediocre sauce. Risotto was good but isn't anything I would order again. Seafood Ravioli was EXCELLENT--freshly made pasta w/crab, scallops & shrimp & a very tasty Vodka sauce--highly recommended! We split a piece of Tiramisu for dessert which was very good. Overall experience=pretty good. Meal w/tip, no drinks=$70, good value for Boston's North End.

    Was excited to eat there..food was good. Carbonara was excellent. Service started out great...ended poorly. Courses brought out on top of each other. Food was delivered, server disappeared..never checked back. All i could hear was the owner's cackling laugh all night. A other server cleared my appetizer and dinner plates at the same time...10 minutes after i was finished...waiting. When the servers saw another reservation appear on computer..they both moaned together. I will never return.

    My wife and I and two friends had a terrific meal at La Galleria 33 on Salem Street last Saturday evening. The room is very interesting and lovely, the service is outstanding (friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive), and the food is terrific. Moreover, the prices are very reasonable. I am very glad that we "discovered" it, a mere block away from too-busy Hanover Street.

    We wanted to check this restaurant out because we saw in on Gordon Ramsay's show. We also really liked the women who run the place as they are Bostonians as we are, and well, we have to support our own. I took an out of town friend here for lunch and my family a few days later. I was very impressed with the food and I can see why Ramsay liked their Tiramisu. You can tell the food is fresh and not microwaved. You can smell it as it is being made. The service is not too bad. The waitresses are very nice. I think they are slower to tend to tables because the location is short staffed. We got seated by one of the owners which was fine with us. :) In the past we have eaten on Hanover Street, but clearly the tasty places are on Salem Street.

    We have lived in Boston for 20+ years and have only found maybe 2 restaurants in the North End that are not pedestrian and tourist centric. In fact we hope to find more we can frequent since we eat out 2-3 times a week. Unfortunately La Galleria 33 is not one of them. Service was very spotty and the food was rather generic to be honest. Perhaps for a tourist it is more about eating IN the North End than enjoying the food. That is too bad. Oh and I also found the bathrooms to be a bit dirty as well. So there is definitely room for improvement.

    Cute ambiance and nice server but that's about it. We went there because out of town friends had seen it on Kitchen Nightmares and were keen to check it out. Wish we could give it a thumbs up, but can't. Had linguine with clam sauce and it was flavorless, the clams huge and rubbery. There was not a stand out dish among us. It also took forever for us to get our meals. Definitely not worth the wait. There are so many great places in the North End but Galleria 33 is not one of them.

    This was my 2nd time at LaGalleria33. The 1st time was good. This time, the service wasn't. We asked for bread and it took so long it came after the appetizer. She asked if we wanted more soda and we said yes but she never said that they didn't offer free refills. If I had known, I wouldn't have let her take my glass when it was still half full. When I ordered the eggplant parmiganna, she said it came with pasta. But when the food arrived, it came without the pasta and I just decided not to bother and started eating. Then the pasta came when I was half finished. It was just ziti in plain tomato sauce with no seasoning and it didn't go with the main dish. The rest of the food was great but I probably won't be back.

    This was our first time dining at this restaurant. We were seated promptly for our reservation even though one of the couples had not arrrived. The restaurant was full but we were not pressured about the couple who ended up being a half hour late. The antipasto was excellent. The prices are moderate and a very good value. The food was very good. Our waitress was attentive but not overbearing. We will definitely return!
