    My husband had the scallop risotto and it was superb. The scallops were cooked perfectly, not overdone. I had the tagliolini with prawns and it too was cooked to perfection. Chris, our server, was friendly, polite, efficient and excellent. Upon learning after we had finished dinner, that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, he brought over some complimentary for us! It was very thoughtful of him. All in all, we had a delightful and relaxing dinner. We would absolutely recommend Galletto for dinner! It's 5 stars from beginning to end.

    Fantastic dining experience with my family. The staff were so kind and attentive to us with two little kids and a baby! The rib eye steak was tastey and cooked perfectly as I asked. They even split my meal in two so I could share with my granddaughter. The wine selection is nice as well.

    My wife and I come here for special occasions and they always do an amazing job for us. I requested the same table we got engaged at and they accommodated and even printed a special menu congratulating us on our anniversary. They have incredible food and spectacular service. The staff are warm and welcoming. We truly love this place and it will continue to be our destination for special events.

    I believe that there is a new chef. I’ve previously ordered spaghetti carbonara and it was great. Last night I ordered it and it was too salty and lacked creamy texture and flavor. There were four of us and my friends thought their dishes were ok. I tasted some of the pork chop and it was a bit strange to have a tomato base with apples.

    The relaxed, warm atmosphere was enjoyable and makes it classy enough for a formal night/date night but not so stuffy that you don't feel uncomfortable if you swung by casually with friends or a quick bite to eat. The food was very good. My party had: grilled octopus appetizer (tasty and cooked well. Nice presentation. Portion was a bit small), 14 oz. ribeye (excellent), tagliolini with prawns, and Tiramisu (pleasantly light). Service was excellent (I would put it on par with upscale...borderline entering fine dining...at least for my server). In a nutshell, I would absolutely keep this place on places to go or refer friends to if I or they are in Modesto.

    We eat here several times a year. Most things were great. We all loved our salads. Our main courses were good. I had the duck risotto which was quite tasty but the duck seemed overcooked. I would have sent it back but we were going to Gallo for a show and it seemed to take longer than usual to get our entrees. One other was the bottle of white wine we ordered was not chilled and wasn’t chilled until hanging out in the ice bucket for a while. I still love this restaurant though!

    Cal treated us like VIPs, and frankly, he deserves a raise for his professionalism, warmth, and hospitality. It’s obvious the rest of the staff are caring and well-trained because of Cal. Our server, Denise, was lovely to us; attentive and fun to chat with. A server who has worked with us before, Chris, also came by just to say hello and check in on us. He treated us like old friends, and was also incredibly kind. Combined with the sensational food and beautiful atmosphere, Galetto’s never fails us when we want a great night out!

    Our meal was excellent from new cocktails to begin with through every course, and we enjoyed four of those. Our entrees were served piping hot, the flavors delicious and the portions generous. Our server, Kasha (?) was engaging and all helpers very attentive. We enjoyed a very pleasurable dining experience for our anniversary celebration.

    Galleto's is our favorite restaurant. If you are in Modesto for the Symphony, it is walking distance. We never dine anywhere else as it is so good, there is no reason to switch. Cal, the manager, makes you feel like a friend and warmly greets all guests. His sincere attention to detail rewards diners with a spectacular experience. The food is sensational, and the service is 5 star. I had the pork chop. I must say it was cooked to perfection and was perfectly accompanied by the peppers and sauce. I can't wait to go back.
