Eight of us got together for our monthly North End dinner and couldn't have chosen a better place. Everyone loved their meal and the setting was fabulous. All at a very reasonable price.

I was here on a Saturday night date night and absolutely loved it! The truffle oil risotto was to die for -- we will definitely be back!

Made a reservation for 8 PM
Made a reservation for 8 PM on a Friday night and we were seated immediately upon walking in. Service was great. The waitress was able to answer any questions I had for her regarding the food or the wine list. Our food came out in a decent amount of time with bread on the table to hold is over until it did. We never had to ask for anything as they were on top of everything. Very nice place and very reasonably priced

We eat in the North End quite offen. Lately we have been trying restaurants off of the Main tourist drag. ( Hanover Street ) The food is every bit as good, less expensive and the staff very friendly. La Galleria is one of the best places I have ever been in the North End. I will go back many times..Veal Parm and homemade linguini was off the charts..

This restaurant is definitely worth a visit! Friendly and quick service (even on a Saturday night), outstanding menu, and delicious food. I ordered the eggplant ravioli, and it was mouthwatering. I highly recommend it. Everyone at my table cleaned her plate! Great for girls' night, date night, or family event. I recommend making reservations.

I had no idea this place had been featured on Kitchen Nightmares-- if I had, I probably wouldn't have gone. But, I'm so glad I did!
Our food was incredible-- I cannot speak highly enough about the linguini & clam sauce! Warning-- it is on the spicy side. Arancini (4) were a perfect size, hot and melty and the red sauce was just sweet enough.
Loved the white bean/olive oil spread with the bread basket.
Entrees ordered were the grilled pork chop and chicken bona boca. The chop came with spicy red pepper strips and mushrooms-- great flavor. Asked the server about the bona boca and the la galleria chicken, he recommended the bona boca- it was wonderful.

Visit inspired by Ramsey's KN
We came here after watching the before and after setups from Kitchen Nightmares. Probably would have been better if it weren't a rainy day, since it got a bit cold inside the restaurant, but definitely looked like the setup from the show.
Food was quite tasty-- the special was delicious (had eggplant, mushrooms, and some other stuff). It felt like the restaurant was really just using the same six ingredients in all their food.... but considering the portion size was excellent and everything was delicious (we ordered canneloni and their super fluffy gnocchi), I really can't complain. Would definitely come back !

Came here with a group of
Came here with a group of 18 for a post-graduation dinner. The menu wasn't extensive, but that's probably because they have perfected everything they do offer. From chicken cacciatore to lobster ravioli, our whole group LOVED every entree and we all ended up sharing with each other claiming we had the best dinner. It was an overall great experience with the exception of how how it was. It is an open air restaurant like many places in the North End, but the tables were close enough where it was just hot inside and a couple people had to step outside periodically to cool off. A fan or two would have perfected an otherwise fabulous night!

Skeptical, but surprised
Did not really know what to expect with Galleria 33, especially with the other great restaurants in the North End. Our service and meal were both fantastic. Would definitely add this restaurant to our "Favorite" list.

The mussels were outstanding!
The mussels were outstanding! The entrees were delicious...homemade eggplant ravioli with vodka sauce, linguine with clams and chicken parmigiana. Things on many menus around the globe, but the preparation of everything was excellent. Nice spumoni sundae. If I lived in Boston I'd be a regular!!
6/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
waitstaff was friendly, knowledgeable, pleasant. Food was terrific. Entrees took awhile to come out but worth the wait.
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dined at this restaurant with my family. The food was amazing, the staff was friendly, and the atmosphere was very soothing. Would definitely recommend.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have eaten here twice: once on a date with my husband and another time with our friends and 4 kids. Both times were fantastic. I love the exposed brick walls and ambiance. We were a little worried bringing young children in there (even on a Monday night), but they were VERY accommodating!! The food was excellent (best veal Parmesan we have ever had), and he wine was also great. The owner was extremely friendly and made sure we were satisfied (even played with our kids!) Definitely recommend going to eat at this lovely restaurant!
6/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Back in Boston, where would I go?
We left for Minneapolis over a year ago, and had the good fortune of visiting for the weekend. This place was a must stop (as we always ate here when we lived in Boston). Of course, we had not been back since the airing of "the show". Very deligjted, and even better than before. Bravo Galeria 33 (and you two sisters)!
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Two familes with kids, treated well
We had 4 adults and 5 kids and they couldn't have been more hospitable, helping the kids order stuff not on the menu, very accommodating. Food was very good as always.

Good North End off Hanover find
Delicious eggplant raviolis and more. Cute and contemporary, small, but not too small. Wonderful easy caring service. Not to pricey and all very delicious. Will be sure to go back and totally recommend.

Good food, good time. Went with a group of four. Our waitress was excellent and everything exceeded expectations.

One of the best!
Being Italian i always am particular when I eat Italian food out. Eating at La Galleria 33 was amazing! The food was exceptional at all levels, the service was superb and the atmosphere relaxing. My wife and I were visiting Boston with good friends and decided to have dinner in the North End. I used Open Table as I always do to read reviews. There are so many choices for great Italian food in the North End but we chose La Galleria 33 from the many great comments we read. What a great choice we made! Prices are amazingly reasonable, the food came out well presented, piping hot with magnificent flavors. One of the best dinners I have had! I will return whenever I am in town! Thank you La Galleria 33!

Charming North End Spot
Galleria 33 is a charming North End dinner spot. It's fine Italian dining at a good price. Nothing too amazing stands out about the restaurant but I'm sure that anyone making a trip here wouldn't be disappointed.

North End gem
It was tough to find a place to book for our party of 10 on short notice - we lucked out when we landed at La Galleria 33! We were seated at a long table in view of the busy kitchen. The staff impressively attentive, given that there was a film crew in the house (doing some last shots for Gordon Ramsey's show). We share appetizers-my favorite was the marinated calamari salad with crisp celery as the perfect foil for the squid. Our table full of talkers went quiet once the entrees arrived. I loved my brodetto entree, but had some food envy over the veal dishes. Concise and fairly priced wine list, lovely ambiance, and nicely spaced tables, unlike so many North End restaurants. We'll definitely go back to La Galleria 33.

Great food, mediocre service
I went here with some family friends I hadn't seen in years. The food was phenomenal! Infortubately, our server wasn't great. We never got water refills and it took sometime before he ven asked us what we wanted to drink. I would recommend this restaurant though, as long as you aren't in a hurry.

Nothing like the north end.
Nothing like the north end. Music ,people, great food, and a wonderful breeze. Would recommend it to my friends.

I had friend in from England and decided to finally try La Galerria 33 and was not disappointed. They couldn't stop talking about it.

Wonderful dining experience.
Wonderful dining experience. Service was great - food was excellent. Nice atmosphere. Planning on going back soon!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
I saw the restaurant featured on Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, and since I was going to be in Boston I decided to check it out, being both a fan of the show, Chef Ramsay, and also because the restaurant looked pretty great. I was hopeful that the La Gallaria 33 would maintain the high standards set with the show - and I wasn't disappointed. The food was delicious and the service was top notch. I was dining alone, and I was made to feel very comfortable. If I'm in Boston again I'll definitely go back!

I went in pretty critical and skeptical of the establishment. The brushetta came out on two toasted pieces of bread, covered in spread topped with cut of tomatoes. Once I bit my criticism was abruptly disrupted. The flavor and cheese spread was amazing and super refreshing. Next my girlfriend and I split the eggplant raviolis and the Gnocchi. We both agree that these were the best raviolis and Gnocchi we have ever had. The Gnocchi was to chewy or too thick, but was super fluffy and the ravioli's covered in pink sauce were packed full of flavor.
All in all I went in with a pretty critical attitude and the food wowed me enough to break through that

La Galleria is a knockout
Whether on a first date, anniversary dinner, or entertaining guests from out of town, La Galleria is the place to go. With a solid wine list and personal twist on traditional entres, this gem on Salem street has quickly gained notable recognition in turn making it a favorite for Bostonians and out of towers alike. The staff is friendly and the chef never seizes to amaze with outstanding main courses, appetizers and specials at very reasonable prices. La Galleria 33 comes highly recommended and the place to be.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
always a great meal
We've eaten here many times and each time we have never been disappointed. Happened to go on the night of the feast of St. Anthony and had the extra please of the parade going by. There wasn't a morsel of food left on anyone's plate. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
La Galleria 33 provided a great cozy setting and food/drink for our party of 14 who came together to celebrate a college graduation and birthday of my youngest son. The wait staff was very patient with our group as some arrived late due to the local Feast of St. Anthony Festival. The delicious appetizers and entree's were served promptly and the portions were reasonable and the cost more than reasonable.
I would recommend La Galleria to anyone.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, very good vine.
Enjoyed our dinner here. We had to wait a but on a busy Saturday evening but it was well worth it. Recommended.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dined with the wife on 9/14/13. This was our fourth or fifth time at this restaurant and the second time since it appeared on Kitchen Nightmares and this time was just as good as the last. We has the fried calamari and some bruschetta as appetizers. Both were excellent and full of flavor. My wife had the chicken bona boca which she loved and I had the veal paradiso which was also delicious. The atmosphere and decor in the restaurant is very subdued and the lighting is soft and relaxing. I would recommend this place for couples and small groups. Also, the prices are ridiculously reasonable for the quality and quantity of the food. Try it out. I think you'll find it refreshing from many of the standard fare places in the North End.

Good spot in the North End
The food was good, although, I felt the menu was a bit limited. Arrive early and you will receive attentive service. However, as it gets later into the evening it will get busy and crowded like most other popular North End locations. We were there for a special occasion dinner (9 year reunion) and felt a bit rushed throughout the meal.
The location is nice and the interior is nicely decorated.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good spot
Our reservation through Open Table was for 7. We arrived early. They had the reservation but were willing to seat us early. It turned out to be a very busy night. Our waiter was a bit distracted, due to the rapidly increasing clientele. The maître d' or owner "stepped in" to pick up the slack. The food was very good and served but seemed to take a bit longer than appropriate to arrive. Again the maître d' stepped in. I had the chicken Galleria, sautéed chicken breasts with asparagus, peas, fontina, in a white wine, chicken broth reduction. It came with pasta. Very good- fresh and not overlooked. The chicken was tender, the veggies cooked just right.
All-in-all a very pleasant dining experience. It does get quite busy on Saturday night.
9/20/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had a group of 7, so we were happy to see a round table, not too common in the North End. The doors were open out to the street giving us a nice breeze and view of the activity on Salem Street.
The wait staff was very good and the food was very good and the portions were excellent.
All in all a very nice evening.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Calamari appetizer was excellent...
Calamari appetizer was excellent...nice, lightly seasoned fresh taste. Veal marsala good dish. Eggplant parmagiana was very midlle-of-the road.

great find on Salem!
Girls day in the city and we were happy to have been tipped off in advance to the good food at this restaurant. We had reservations and were seated promptly. Our waitress, although attentive, did seem alittle harried. We had to ask for water refills, cheese, etc Our food was served promptly. The calamari appetizer was probably the best I have ever had. Our entrees came out piping hot and the portion sizes were nice (altho not as large as some other italian style restaurants i have been too). Definately would recommend the eggplant parm! Overall, a very pleasant dining experience and would go back again.

All four in our party had different meals and everyone was very happy. Food was very fresh and tasty, service excellent. It was a bit noisier than we had hoped....how about some sound softening fabrics somewhere. All in all, a very nice evening.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
My parents and I decided to come to this place again after over a year. The menu was decent, not too extensive and they had a good selection of wines. Our wait staff was attentive throughout the night. We will be back again.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Well worth the trip
We were very pleased with the food and the atmosphere. North End at it's best and a little off the beaten path. Pasta like mama used to make.

My husband and I love to eat out and La Galleria 33 is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is consistently great, and the staff is friendly and very attentive. Nice North End location - great spot for family get togethers.
