This is our second trip there
This is our second trip there for dinner before a concert. They are good to get you out in time and the service is excellent. We had reservations and we seated promptly upon our arrival. There wine list is wonderful and many selections to choose from. The food looks wonderful and tastes excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a nice dinner experience.

The staff went above and beyond
The staff went above and beyond to make our 1 year anniversary very special and memorable. We were married at Gallettos last year and will be visiting every year to celebrate our nuptials. Chef Michael personally treated us at our table to wish us a happy anniversary and made delicious appetizers to start off our meal. The staff was very gracious and attentive to our needs.

Birthday Celebration Perfection
My friend Lindsey loved her personalized menu and special treatment during our visit. All three of us enjoyed every course we ordered, and only wish we had room for more! Perfect, as always.

We have eaten here a few times and it is always excellent. I made reservations through Open Table and our table is always ready for us when we arrive. The wait staff is very knowledgeable about the wine and the food on their menu. Drinks and food are served in a timely manner and every salad or entree we have had has been outstanding.
I like that the menu does change so it is not always the same and you can taste new dishes.

Great food & service
Second time here. My boyfriend & I went for dinner on a Friday night. Started with calamari, yum! He got the filet Mignon & said it was cooked perfectly. I got the leek soup and brussel sprout salad. Both delicious! We both had 2 beers with dinner. Total was around 100 bucks. I had a $50 open table check which is one of the reasons why we went. This is a very popular restaurant in Modesto. I usually don't go because it can be pricey especially if you want to order drinks. The only complaint I have is the server had a THICK Spanish accent & we couldn't understand a word he was saying. He was stuttering & couldn't remember ingredients when he was telling us the daily specials. Very nice guy though. Could have been new. Would still recommend!

The food was great, the atmosphere was romantic and friendly. If you in Modesto this restaurant is a must visit .

I don't come to Galletto enough, but the food and service is always good. I entertained an out-of-town candidate for an open position and he absolutely loved the restaurant.

I'll be Back!!!!!
Okay, so my husband and I were looking for an upscale restaurant, ambience, a good meal, and a nice glass of wine. I knew of Galletto's and booked a reservation. Subsequently I read the recent reviews which weren't very good...and was a bit concerned about what we'd find. What we found was a wonderful restaurant that I will return to! We went on a Sunday evening and the restaurant was quiet. The food was excellent, we had nice wine (their wine list, though limited, has entries from Argentina, New Zealand, Spain, Italy, California, etc). The service was top notch! Our waiter was attentive without being a nuisance. There was also another individual, not a server, who kept a close eye on all the diners and their needs. GREAT!

I’ve been here many times
I’ve been here many times for lunch and normally make reservations online. The food is good, prepared fresh and served in a timely manner. The price is a little high but worth it if you’re looking for a good meal and tired of the chain style restaurants. I will definitely continue to give Galletto Ristorante my business.

I was impressed that the online reservation worked and at short notice. The Service just as or more impressive. Then offered the choice of bubbling water w/lemon; very impressive....a pitcher full! I had the gnocchi w/chicken...very good! The only thing that might have made it better was to have artichokes in it. The prices were very reasonable! Overall we love Galletto's especially when we go to a concert at the Gallo Center.

Fantastic Margarita Pizza! :)
The Margarita Pizza was fantastic. They should offer a create your own specialty pizza option or expand the pizza menu. The crust was thin and cooked to perfection. Combine that with the fine dining atmosphere and you have a perfect dining experience.

Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. (except the gross throat things with the fillet, ewe!)
The only criticism would be with the drinks where they had a new bartender in training and the first was really weak and the second over compensated a bit. No reduction on the bill for these trials.

Awesome as always. Our servers
Awesome as always. Our servers were wonderful. Perfect food served by pros!

Relaxing night out
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.

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.

Much more friendly than I remember!
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.

Great dinner, service and ambiance.
Wonderful time. Seated the minute we got there. The food is perfect. The service was the best! Love it.

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.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing as always
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.

The only complaint is the first bottle of wine we ordered, they did not have in their inventory.

Weeknight out with friends
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 :-)

Always a good experience
The food is always exceptional, and the service is exceptional as well.

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.

Great Thanksgiving option
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.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
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.

Quality all the way
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
