Indulge your taste buds with celebrated Italian favorites with an elevated twist, as well as a more modern take on contemporary Italian fare. We invite our guests to sit back and enjoy their meal in our sophisticated yet understated Soho dining room. If you’re in the mood for celebrating, join us at the elegant marbled bar, and enjoy a variety of our signature craft cocktails. We also offer vegetarian/vegan-friendly and gluten-free options, as well as gluten-free pasta that can be substituted in most of our dishes to accommodate your dietary restrictions.

Staff was friendly, attentive, and helpful. Service was quick and the food was great. I also felt like the staff went above and beyond to make my birthday dinner special which I really appreciated. Would definitely recommend Galli!

Extremely loud rap music, over salted and sour tomato sauce, very disappointing cause it’s italian restaurant and they can’t even get pasta sauce right, good meatballs, but again that nasty tomato sauce almost killed them, veal was ok, over fried a little bit and kind of flavorless, but still eatable, bread and cocktails were great as well as service. I would not recommend this restaurant for someone who knows what good Italian food tastes like, but for a drink and just cool ambiance why not, overall decent place, just don’t order anything with tomato sauce.

Awesome food, reasonable price, and the best atmosphere for a Friday night out! I come here once every year when I visit the city and will continue to do so.

It was delicious! Was so happy with the service, food and atmosphere. Only complaint was that it does get a little loud.. but a ‘busy’ loud! Clearly a hot lunch spot.

We had a few questions regarding pricing and options. The manager Ash was really nice to work with. He advised us promptly on all options and was able to make quick changes. It was a pleasant experience and I will recommend in the future.

Thanks for everything!

1. Loud music in a way you could hardly hear your own taught.

2. Upon arrival I was inform that my reservation at 6pm is ok but I will have to leave the table at 8pm. Why? Because the restaurant made another reservation and they will need my table.
When I sad that it’s not my problem “she” (the up front hostess) made reservation at 8pm, “she” said that this is restaurant policy “2 hours for each guest”. I only express that this whole thing is ridiculous and unacceptable... Ian’s is this is the “policy” the restaurant should be upfront on their website and upon making reservation about such in the first place.
she did not say anything and shrugged her shoulders.... regardless she should not get into discussion with me and cut me when I was answering ... another unacceptable thing.

3. Although the food was great, I am not gonna return to this place.

Do not recommend at all!

FOOD WAS GREAT. The place was really nice as well. Loved the eggplant and the penne vodka. They had really good music playing but it was kind of loud sometimes but not really an issue for me. The food was amazing and this is a place I would go back again.

Despite having booked a reservation in advance, we were placed at a table in the bar by the front door that opened and closed all night. Despite asking repeatedly for the draft curtains to be closed, no change. Spent a lot of money to eat in a cold bar. Disappointed as I was really looking forward to it...

I had the gnocchi, and tried out a pasta with eggplant. The food was just average, and way too overpriced. One of my friends abandoned her salad and said she really disliked it. It was very loud and noisy inside (which can be just due to other customers, but it was very hard to talk).

Gallis’ Atmosphere and service was a respit from the constant attempt to turn over tables, which happens often in New York City restaurants. Instead, they encouraged ease and time. The food was out prompt, and fresh, and the meals we shared were wonderful. The hostes was the mostest, as she and the wait staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and well sated. At first glance, and upon arrival I thought I would not have the privacy I needed to conduct very focused conversations, but I was given a booth, and was very quickly surprised at the ability to squirrel away with my guests, and feel as if I was entirely alone and private. I dined during their lunch hours, and when I thought I had overstayed my welcome, they encouraged one last cup of coffee, which was super duper yummy.. just sayin’... Go go go go go.. that’s all folks.. just Go..

Galli is a wonderful neighborhood treat. The food and service are good, and I like that the bar and dining areas are separate. I had their deliciously fresh take on Italian wedding soup, and now I've been craving it ever since.

It was great. Good environment. The sandwiches are huge and you can share. However, the entree salad are pretty small and it does not value the price. When I got mine, I complained and the waitress got me one more portion to make it better and valuably.
Anyway. Recommend to a friend

Everything was fantastic except the atmosphere. The lighting was a bit too dark and the music was wayyyyyy too loud. It was like eating dinner in a club almost because of the noise level and genre of music that was being played.
