Filet mignon was perfect and paired with a Ceasar salad just right.

The service and food was good but the drinks were extremely weak and for between 11-13 dollars a piece it wasn’t worth the drinks and I did tell the waitress however she didn’t ask to bring me a drink on the house or comp that drink.

We had trouble with the table even though restaurant was almost empty we were given a table facing the bar and tv which is not our idea of having nice dinner.

Very happy to have fine dining again ... Galletto's has returned in fine form. While the restaurant only had a few patrons, the service remains top notch. The filet mignon with port reduction was excellent, but the risotto with crab suffered from excessively earthy spices (sage? rosemary?) that conflicted with the seafood. Regardless, after 2+ months of takeout, it was a very well appreciated experience

Overall. A very good dining experience and the waiter Freddy was fabulous. Our main course was just OK considering the premium price for a restaurant in Modesto. I had the rib eye steak which was extremely over salted, very chewy and had an odd chemical flavor to it. My guest had the filet and it too was over salted and over cooked.

One of our first dinners out since COVID-19. They have done an excellent job reopening and their service and food remains outstanding. The restaurant lays out really well to provide social distancing without depleting any of the energy or ambiance. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.

Galletto's is our favorite restaurant for special occasions, or just for a special night out.
The food, service, and ambiance is always very good. I highly recommend this restaurant.
You will not be disappointed! It is also a lot quieter than most dinner houses which is very nice.

Disappointed with the host/hostess service. Made reservations on multiple dates. We would walk in, many tables open, and be told it would be a second. 15 minutes later we would be sat. There seems to be a disconnect between the host/hostess staff and waiters for table availability. Very off putting when plans have been made for days or weeks ahead of time.

Disappointed to see how much this restaurant that once had so much potential has slid below the mediocre mark. They don’t even accurately serve what is presented on the menu. It’s almost a bait and switch. We will never take guests or visitors to Galletos again. It’s obvious the restaurant is suffering financially and the only thing you can count on is that you are not going get what you pay for. My advice is to check out Wildfire Public House of of Oakdale Road and Briggsmore or Fina by John Surla in Ripon.

My objection had to do with luncheon Cobb Salad. Lots of old tough lettuce and other hard to eat greens, a glob of chopped bacon, and a spicy green goddess dressing. The other ingredients were ok. The presentation was not appealing. We ate what we could.
