Gale's Restaurant is a totally local spot. It offers remarkably solid Northern Italian fare just down the road from all the hubbub. Couples, families and friends that seem to have just finished a day outdoors snuggle among the brick walls and small marble tables, drinking wine from elegant Brighton goblets. Start it off with a Burrata Salad or a steamed artichoke and then move on to the country-style Tuscan steak or one of the house made ravioli specials. For dessert, don't miss the Tiramisu or the Coconut Cake which is uncommonly tasty. The wine list is a favorite among the guests for it's variety and excellent value.

We were really disappointed. All signs pointed to a good meal. The appetizer was excellent, as were the drinks and wine. The bread was delicious. The entrées however fell short. My husband had the risotto with peas and it was unlike typical risotto. I had the gnocchi and it was only ok. The portions were large. The service was very good. Not sure if we hit them on an off night or if we chose the wrong thing

I enjoyed our meal at Gale's. Getting seated was a little odd; it seemed that the host and hostess were a little overwhelmed. We arrived on time for our reservation, and had to wait 10 minutes. Once we were seated, there were no more glitches. Two of us the lamb, and we were both very happy. The roasted potatoes that came with mine were excellent. My friends split chicken piccata, which they enjoyed, and gnocci. I tried the gnocci, and I thought it was very heavy. The waiter warned us that it would be -- which is not a good sign. We started with the meatball appetizer. Not particularly generous for $16, but very tasty. The rest of the dishes were all very generously sized; the "split" chicken Piccata was downright massive. In all, I'd recommend for a low-key dinner if you are in the mood for comfortable, casual Italian.

I have eaten here many times and it is consistently good. I recommend the House mixed salad and the eggplant 🍆 parmigiana. I’ll be going back.

Gale's is always consistently delicious, with friendly, solid service. We have been dining here for many years, and while we don't get to come very often, we enjoy it every time we do. Highly recommend.

Kind, pleasant servers, fine food for lunch, limited and not so carefully prepared food for dinner, quiet for lunch, much too crowded and noisy for dinner, uncomfortable chairs for both, ridiculous decor -traditional, elegant chandelier, some traditional presumably Italian touches -walls, for example, mixed with an open kitchen and minimalist, super modern, super casual wooden look and floors.
