Selection was very poor, Italian dishes (???). The Service was poor as well. Olive Garden would put you to shame. The only thing good was the wine, of course you charged me double the price for that as well. I won't ever waste my time coming.

We love going to Galletto because the food and service are consistently amazing. We started going during the pandemic and this was the first time we had seen the restaurant full. The service was a little slower than previous occasions but not awful.

Service was slow, had to ask for our server on multiple occasions.
One pasta dish was undercooked, another was spicy without mentioning spice on the menu.

The ambiance and location were good. It wasn’t easy to find parking on a Friday night.
The fish and ravioli entrees were great.

The Bruschetta appetizer was not good, too much tomato flavor which drowned out and garlic, basil and balsamic flavors.

Do not order the spaghetti & meatballs. It was more than al dente, it was very chewy. The meatballs tasted just like hamburger meat rolled into balls. I tasted my boyfriend's halibut and it was outstanding. Wish I had ordered that!

I will go back to Galletto's. We all enjoyed our food. It was all flavorful. My rib-eye had more gristle than I like. I'll try something else next time.The bread came after the starters. The bar service was also a bit slow. But, I recommend this upscale, beautiful restaurant.

I made last minute reservations via OpenTable App. Very easy and convenient by the way. In the app it asked what was the occasion and I chose anniversary. (More on that later) We were running a bit late because downtown was closed because of graffiti nights parade. We called the girl was very friendly and understanding, she even suggested a good parking spot. When we got there they found our reservation emidiatly (great job OpenTable) The hostess was very friendly and inviting she pointed out our server and we were seated. The inside is as nice as the outside of the restaurant. Lighting is dark but still feels very warm and inviting. They had awesome oldies music playing inside and outside of the restaurant. Our server was amazing very friendly and informative. We got our menus and It was so awesome that our menu said "Happy Anniversary" AMAZING TOUCH! My wife teared up because she thought it was a very special gesture, I totally agree! We ordered our food and it was Amazing! When we were done with our dinner we asked our server if we could be seated outside in the patio area. He kindly said he would check if there was room and lucky for us there was. It is an awesome atmosphere beautify decorated. We will be definitely coming back and we definitely recommend for any special occasion or just to hang out. 😀

Sitting on the patio at Galletto for lunch is always a treat. Though the food takes a while to get to your table, it is worth the wait. You just have to plan on taking more than an hour for lunch. The service is always fabulous!

Overall experience was outstanding. Enjoyed dinner on outside patio on a warm evening. Staff was very friendly and service team was very attentive. Dropped a rating for food because the nightly fish special was lacking in flavor and disappointing. Our party also had the pork chop entree which was phenomenal as was the lobster pasta. Will definitely visit again.
