Extremely relaxing place for our neighborhood dining.
Restaurant is very noisy and loud other than that is great
We are never disappointed. the food is great and they have wonderful service.
Been to Gales' many times and we're always satisfied with the food and service! Can't go wrong; highly recommended! :-)
Had a great dinner with friends Excellent service and fantastic martinis and a very reasonably priced meal
As always a wonderful dining experience. My friends and I have been going here for 20 years.
We eat here frequently and have never had a bad meal. One of the best Italian restaurant in Pasadena. Service is always terrific. Highly recommended.
Gales is always a wonderful experience. I love taking friends there.
We enjoyed it but it was very noisy.
We have been dining at Gale's since its inception. Gale and Rene are gracious, welcoming and generous hosts who make every effort to ensure everyone in their elegant (but approachable) restaurant feel at home and appreciated. After a long absence (we lived out of California for 8 years), we returned and were so pleased to experience again the friendly, professional, knowledgeable and cordial staff; the fabulous cuisine and the thoughtfully designed ambiance. These are people who care about their guests and prove it time and again.
Such an excellent meal! Prosciutto and melon to start was ideal, followed by a fabulous salad and then two different pasta entrees, with plenty left over to take home. Everything was perfectly prepared, nice and hot on arrival, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious, and great service to boot. What a great spot. Wish I lived closer-- I'd be a regular.
Best beet salad in the USA! Staff is super, from hostesses to servers, bartenders and expediters.
As always the food was delicious ... the service great!
We took our good friend there for dinner to celebrate his first granddaughter's birth. The food was outstanding and the waitress was amazingly warm, friendly but NEVER intrusive, excited about the baby and the Reserve Chianti was delicious. We have been coming to Gale's since it opened and it has only gotten better and better. We almost always come for dinner.
Love this restaurant. Food was wonderful and service super efficient and friendly.
Really solid local fave. One of the more authentic Italian restaurants in the area, with a friendly staff, good wine list, and super cooking. Get reservations!
Gale's has become a regular for our family--always good food and usually too full to enjoy their excellent desserts. Very friendly staff and reasonably priced courses.
We love Gale's for the authentic and delicious Italian food. My only complaint is that the tables are too close together and it is noisy - not where you'd want to be if you were having an intimate conversation! Otherwise, it's one of my favorites in Pasadena!!
Very poor. Truly disappointed. Was there for a business dinner. Ordered a bottle of wine and the waiter immediately started peddling and forcing more expensive bottles. When I politely refused and stuck to the wine I selected he was upset and in front of my client, saying that it was cheap wine and not good, making me feel embarrassed. The food was not good either.
Then when the bill came I noticed that he had charged me for the more expensive bottle of wine he was forcing me to get . When I politely pointed out the error, he started arguing with me and told me I was wrong. I pointed to the empty bottle on the table and the price for it on the menu and he was denying and arguing however that’s not the right price!! All this in front of my client making it worse for me. Then I asked to get the manager who came and just said the owner put the wrong price in the computer and kept making me feel like I was wrong. So up to this point no apologies and completely denying their mistakes and rude responses but also throwing their owner under the bus by blaming on them the pricing error. They finally reluctantly adjusted the price without any apologies after this level of humiliation in front of my client - even when I was right. I hope the owner of the restaurant takes notice what type of operation.
Service was outstanding all the way around. The food was terrific. We were looking for a new place to try and found Gale’s. Loved it.
It was our first time going there. I had told them it’s a date night with another couple, and they sat us in the corner of the back room. It was so stuffy, we left earlier than planned. I wish they had sat us in the main dining room.
For most of the pasta dishes you can swap the pasta, which was great! I got to combine my favorite kind of pasta with my favorite kind of preparation! And you can request to add some marinara or other sauces in the dish with no additional charge! Free sourdough with olive oil and balsamic as dipping, finger-licking!!!
Excellent food and service
As always the experience at Gale’s was excellent. The food is always delicious and the service is good. The vibe is lovely, without being so loud you can’t carry on a conversation. It’s a great dining experience.
We always enjoy Gales. The wine and food are very good and it is a fun Pasadena gem. It can get very loud but that would not keep me away. We enjoy bringing out of town friends to Gales
I love going to Gale’s. It was a special occasion. I asked to be seated in a quiet area and was accommodated well. Great food and nice service staff.
This was my first time at Gale's; loved the shrimp scampi, spaghetti with lemon caper sauce. Six large tasty shrimp; generous portion. Shared a Caesar salad before--just the perfect amount. Many delicious sounding dishes on the menu; looking forward to another visit soon.
Disappointed in food quality and lack of innovative Italian cuisine.
Gale's is a long time favorite that never disappoints.
Gale's is our "go-to" place when we get together for dinner with friends. It is conveniently located to where we live. It is noisy and not conducive to quiet conversation, but the food is always exceptional. The servers/staff are friendly and attentive.
It was great
I've eaten at Gale's probably 12 - 15 times. I have never been disappointed.
I was there with my boyfriend and 2 grandchildren. The food took 45 minutes to arrive. It was overcooked and nothing special. We were very disappointed.
Gale's is out go to! It is always outstanding from a meal and service standpoint, as well as an energetic atmosphere. Fish is always cooked to perfection, never overcooked. Pasta is freshly made, and creatively sauced. The secret, though, is their coconut cake! It is truly the best I've had
Chicken Parmesan is really bad nd chicken breast not good
Front room is too loud for large group conversation .
Would have given all 5’s but they didn’t take discover cards! Food was excellent.
Chopped salad with grilled salmon is THE BEST!! LOVE this place♥️
Our waiter was amazing and took very good care of us.
Excellent good, responsive service, super convenience for pre concert dining.
