Pasta al Forno
creamy meat sauce, mozzarella, parmesan cheese
prosciutto, arugula, mozzarella and tomato sauce
Delicious Italian food! Remind me of being in Italy!
Nice place for lunch the help was helpful and friendly. The food was good a bit pricy but I am sure they have a lot of expenses to meet so they have to up the prices. They have tried to fix up dining out side to be very comfortable and pleasant
Overall is was a great lunch and when they open again for sure we will be back
Perfect Pasta. Add a Caesar. And a glass of wine. Gale's is the place for lunch.
Great food, very good service
Never fails !!!!!
Second time having Gale's and it was better than before. I tried the fettuccini with pancetta which was really good, perfect amount of sauce and not too cheesy. The service was great and I really liked how they designed their outdoor area with heaters, it felt nice and cozy.
Gale's is always a good idea. Their food reminds me of a place I ate at in Rome. Flavorful, paired with just the right wines, and the coconut cake with raspberry is just amazing. I live close to an hour's drive away, but it is totally worth the drive every single time.
Excellent food. Service was a little slow but friendly. Get the coconut cream cake for dessert.
Gale’s never disappoints. It is one of our Pasadena favorites and we are so thankful they remain open during the pandemic. We especially appreciate the daily specials menu. It is delicious!
Wonderful as usual!
Always love going there and having a great experience
Fabulous each & every time ❤️❤️
Gale’s does not disappoint! Our server was outstanding. I ordered the shrimp scampi and my husband ordered the lobster ravioli special. Both were excellent! We will be back soon!
Eat here everything good. Crab salad with beets , luiguini and clams. Brazino cocanut cream cake zuchinni blossoms stuffed with buretta cheese etc
Have heater lamps if cold
The food is always delicious at Gale’s. The servers were all very helpful and friendly. Our server recommended a pasta dish for my 90 year old mom who is very picky and she loved it! I rated the ambience lower since we have to be outside in the parking lot, but that’s not the fault of the restaurant. I always have a positive experience at Gale’s.
We started with the crab cakes -- and they were excellent. Ordered the Scampi Linguini for the main course. Also excellent. The bread they served is incredible. I wish I knew where they bought it.
Service was perfect -- as were the wine suggestions.
Highly recommend. Felt very safe.
One of the best Italian restaurants other than my kitchen. Love the specials, Love the wine list, always a lovely evening with my husband when we dine there.
Attentive service, fresh ingredients, complimentary birthday cake—coconut cake was FABULOUS.
We love Gales, excellent food and service in a lovely new outdoor tent setting.
Great northern Italian food in Pasadena.
Server, don't remember his name, was absolutely fabulous and really made the whole experience. Delicious seafood risotto. The outdoor dining was really quite nice and pleasant. A truly delightful anniversary dinner.
I love this hidden gem. The food is amazing and the staff is very friendly. Gale walks around and welcomes you at the table. Service is also top notch.
The food is delicious. The outdoor experience is good. We will go back again for its extensive menu
Everything here was delicious. We asked the waiter for a suggestion and shortly after a regular patron came up to us and recommended the seafood soup. He told us he had been coming here for years and you can't go wrong. We didn't try the soup, but instead settled on a delicious appetizer with lightly fried shrimp and vegetables with a pesto mayo dip. Our main courses were linguine with clams and chicken parmesan. We split a large simple salad which was very good. The guy was right - everything was good. We had a flourless chocolate cake and a coconut cake for dessert - so filling. Then they brought these delicious mini-biscotti with the bill - very tasty. The house cabernet was very good and it was a very nice meal, all said and done. We'll be back.
Lovely as always. It’s become a Saturday evening tradition!!!!
Always a treat to dine at Gale’s. Lamb chops are a winner!
Wonderful experience at Gale’s Restaurant. The staff is very cautious and courteous. The food is as excellent as always. The wines are very well selected and incredibly low priced for a restaurant. Wonderful comfort dining during worrisome times.
Excellent food. Parking lot is as pretty as possible.
As always, couldn’t have been better.
We really enjoyed our meals. We ordered the penne pasta and shrimp scampi and both were outstanding! The service was excellent. We live out of the area but will definitely go back on our next visit to Pasadena.
Gale's deserves the highest recommendation.
Owner Gale has created a comfortable space
in the adjacent parking lot (you wouldn't know).
Food remains top quality and all employees are
helpful, informative and friendly. We all three
enjoyed the lunches we ordered.
I was disappointed with my visit this time. I had reservations and I was seated in the worst location, next to the exit/entry where the servers come in and out, very busy and annoying. The order was the Linguini and seafood mix puttanesca. The Linguini was hot and the seafood was lukewarm. I expected better with the temperature of the food.
The time before was perfect so I will give Gale's the benefit of the doubt and recommend it to a friend.
Post election bliss
Excellent food, sitting outside is not as nice as indoors but the tent helps.
Our experience was average to say. I must admit that for the first time in many, many years the food and service was not up to your bench mark standard fine dining experience. You're to be commended to survive during these days of COVID-19. Yet, we felt unwelcomed and excluded.
Had a great lunch. The crab ravioli special was delicious! Outdoors with all covid precautions.
Excellent dining experience with excellent food. Always great.
They have such an extensive menu, were impressed again. We had the Burrata with peaches and berries and the zuppe de pesce. The soup had lots of fish and shared it. I have recommended Gales to many of my friends and they've all loved it. We will definitely return soon.
