Galli Restaurant SoHo
What Insiders Are Saying
Crowd-pleasing Italian in Soho. Bring a crowd of your friends sometime.
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.
very cool. quick service and cool little atmosphere
Birthday dinner. Great service and they brought and comp’d us for a birthday brownie and champagne. Great food and service.
We had a great evening. Service, food and atmosphere were wonderful. Best Chicken Marsala I’ve ever had. Our waiter was very attentive to our needs. Definitely will be back next time we’re in town.
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...
Food was good, service okay. Tight, tight, tight quarters. They area making use of every square inch of floor space.
Amazing food with reasonable prices. The waitress was attentive and friendly. Highly recommend and will be back!
Good experience over all. Food is ok, nothing extraordinary but good.
Wonderful food and service, but the noise level was very high, unable to hold a conversation on a Friday night.
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).
loved it all, even the noise, it has a great vibe!
Fantastic Food and Service
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..
Interior design was beautiful and food was great . Just a little bit too loud in that back room. Drinks could have been served quicker as well . Other than that , I’ll be back .
The food was way too salty
I didn’t have to wait long for my food after I ordered
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.
Amazing service and food!
Need to add another restroom was a bit annoyed ppl were hovering over us due to a long lineand our table was near the restroom
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
I booked this restaurant for my birthday dinner and I absolutely loved it! Service was top notched and the food was great. Although it does get noisy and loud, it's all part of the atmosphere.
First time here. Nice atmosphere. Good food. Good service. Will be coming back.
Everything was great except it was a bit cold in the back.
It was great service and attention. Plus the ambiance was very much like in the pictures which I liked! Hosting could be more attentive but all the servers and were excellent!
Two friends gathering on Galli’s best pasta dish- pasta di funghi!! Best mushroom pasta ever with Madeira! Lovely service as always, and we have returned here for past four years for the same dish! Cheers!
Galli never disappoints, food, service, all 5 star
Great food and service
Venue is in a very good location. Ambiance is very nice and has that homebody feel. Very amicable staff, and very accommodating to large parties.
Galli is my go to. The ambiance is cool and the food is amazing.
This was my first time dining at Galli, and the whole experience was amazing! Loved the drinks, loved the gnocchi, loved the server!! Will be back!
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.
Came for New Years. Great experience. Had a great host, they like to have fun. Very friendly. Food was good, wine was better ;) Overall good experience
Always great, wonderful service and the food/cocktails are excellent.
My favorite restaurant in NYC! Food is amazing, staff is amazing, and great location.
