    As a professional chef and general manager I would have to say the food was fair. The ambience however was excellent and sitting on the patio is worth the price of admission.

    The food was excellent. Salmon was probably the best I have ever had. We sat on the patio, which was lovely, but the noise level was too high. There was a lot of traffic noise from the street. We will definitely be back.

    Galletto RistoranteResponded 7 days agoThank you for the great review and feedback. We will keep the doors closed to soften the noise.

    Anniversary dinner. We sat outside on a warm evening. My lobster was great with a great presentation and tasted even better. My wife's shrimp was perfect. The calamari appetizer was unique and enjoyable. Service was attentive and friendly. It's not an inexpensive restaurant but you get what you pay for! We'll be back.

    Positives: Filet was fork tender, cooked perfectly. Roasted Beet Salad was great. Caesar salad was all time best ever. Chocolate bread pudding with caramel sauce and Vanilla Bean Gelato was superb. Wine was priced competitively. Negatives: Frito Misto (Calamari & friends) was worst we've ever had, ever. Old rancid fry oil, few calamari except over-fried legs. Pork chop ordered medium was cook well done, thus kind of tough. Root veg side, had so much mustard, that zero other flavors came through. Broccolini side was barely cooked/crunchy. Overall: higher highs, but lower lows - makes the price/value weak.

    We had a large group for a special event and 5 out of 6 people loved their meals. The steak risotto was a favorite as well as the rib-eye. Scampi pasta was a bit spicy and dry. We loved the desserts but wish they were served warm. Seriously, does anyone like cold bread pudding? Service was fantastic, very friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back.

    Galletto RistoranteResponded on May 4, 2023Thank you for the great review and the feedback. I will definitely speak with our chef about our desserts being very hot.

    Went for a pre Gallo Center dinner. There were six of us. The bruschetta was good. The beet salad was ok but it had too much dressing. My husband thought his chicken was average. My ravioli were so salty I could not eat them. Also the broccolini on two other plates were also too salty. Drinks were great. Service was great. For the price point we paid, I would expect a better quality of food and a bit more attention to plating. Probably wont come back but the location is very convenient.

    To my surprise, the music was loud, it’s usually “background” music. That’s one of the things that separates Galletto Ristorante from other restaurants… the details. Any restaurant can play loud music, a fine dinner house should not! Service was slow, very unusual.
