    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.

    The food was very good, although the bruschettas were hard to bite on them and they were crumbling. The waiter was a very attentive and pleasant gentleman. I believe his name was Chris.

    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.

    We dined before a show at Gallo. Service was great. Even our wine came to the table exactly when our entree came. If you are lucky enough to go on a night where they have scallops as the special, order them! They were served with a parsnip purée and asparagus and blistered grape tomatoes. So good! My husband’s beef short ribs were great too!

    Very delicious. Our server was excellent. Because I can only eat minimal carbs she worked with me and I was able to order with healthier options like mushrooms, seasonal veggies and broccolini. It was my sons birthday and the complimentary champagne was an extra added touch.

    I Imade a reservation there to celebrate my 4th anniversary with my wife, and it was an amazing dining experience. From the beginning to the end of the dinner, the service provided by the employees was truly special. They never forgot the reason for our presence there and always added special touches to make us feel like we were truly celebrating our anniversary. I highly recommend this place for any occasion, but especially for anniversaries and birthdays. They are really, really thoughtful! Thank you so much!
