    The best pasta e fagioli I've ever had and comes in a good portion. Service was good and the inside was nice. Took my parents here for a nice dinner and they loved it. Shrimp parm was very good as well.

    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.

    Always a great spot in the north end. The antipasto is fantastic. I love the gnocchi and the risotto, and it's great that you can get half-plates... it means you don't have to carry the other half around when you don't finish it. Diverse wine list, and lovely atmosphere.

    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.

Good wine selection and food was fresh and delicious-Gluten Free options available! Our server was awesome; had great knowledge of the food and made solid recommendations. Would definitley go back!

    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!

    Dined here last Sat night - had a group of 4. I chose this restaurant hoping that it would be a little less noisy and packed in as many North End restaurants are, and thankfully, that was what we found. The two men in our group are hard of hearing, and when there is a lot of background noise, dinner conversation is impossible. Dining here was a very comfortable, enjoyable experience. 3 of us had the seafood risotto special - outstanding! The chicken parm was OK, a little heavy on the cheese, but that is a personal taste. The caesar salads were fresh and perfectly dressed. The pasta fagiole soup was a meal in itself. Service was relaxed, we didn't feel rushed to turn the table over. Overall great experience, we will be back.

    I was entertaining a group of 9 work colleagues from across the country and selected La Galleria 33 based on other positive Open Table reviews. When we arrived a long table was set for us. We requested a round table to enjoy better conversation and the team set us up quickly. The evening was perfect, with great, friendly service and, with everyone selecting a different meal, all meals were hits.

    Open Table and Yelp guide me to selecting this wonderful spot. My wife and I met our son and his girlfriend here during a business trip to Boston. The food and the atmosphere were terrific. The waiter, Patrick, did a terrific job guiding us to make the proper selections. It was a great value for the price. La Galleria 33 is on Salem Street. This is not on the main North End thoroughfare. This helped to remove some of the hubbub. We will certainly return.

    Group of 15 family members on Saturday night to celebrate a college graduation. Everyone loved the food and wine, the service turned out good after a sluggish start (last-minute waiter change seemed to throw off the arrival of menus, settings, bread).

    I asked the waitress about a pasta item on the menu and she didn't elaborate or explain the dish to me, she just answered "yes" to my question. When the dish arrived to my table it was not what she said it would be. She then asked how everything was, I told her it was not what I had expected and she snapped back, telling me she had explained it and basically putting the blame on me. SO unprofessional. Her lack of knowledge about itallian cuisine and her rude, inappropriate remarks have made this restaurant one I will never return to.
