Had some of my favorite pasta here at Galli!
Started with the ceasar salad which was so delicious.
For dinner we got the Pesto and Funghi pastas which were incredible. Never had anything like the Funghi before in nyc!! Definitely would recommend

Perfect mid week dinner. Our waiter Jason was new to the restaurant but was already on his game. Recommended several popular items on the menu. We will definitely be coming back

The hostess was extremely rude upon checking in. I told her we had a 7:30 resy, she stopped me mid sentence and walked away. There was an issue with the seating of another table and it apparently needed 2 people working there to sort it out. After waiting for several minutes, she came over to me and just looked at me very blank in the eye and didnt say anything. So I had to repeat myself again and she didnt say anything and sort of just grumbled something and sat us down. The pasta was def over cooked. My boyfriend is Neapolitan so this was very disappointing. The food used to be so much better, I dont know what happened.

I just wanted to stop by and grab a bite somewhere after shopping and this was close. I wasn’t a fan on my food by bacon tasted like it was freezerburned then chopped up into the carbonara. Ehh but the sauce was awesome and the waiters were exceptional.

Very mediocre. Pasta was very al dente. Received cocktails after our meal when ordered well before. Low staff for the amount of tables they were waiting. Not sure if this is just during COVID.

I understand the stress and adjustments that have to be made during this time so I wasn’t upset. However, this review is just being made to encourage everyone to pay attention to all of their customers. If you don’t have the capacity or man power to take on reservations, simply don’t. I was there for an hour an a half before I got an appetizer. 30 minutes for a glass of wine. Hour for the 2nd glass. Never received dinner. It’s fine... I get the times we are in, simply try to do better or make adjustments to accommodate everyone. I watched the table in front of me get their drinks and appetizers in less than half the time it took me to get mine and they were a table of 6.

Disappointed. Felt like the server was overworked and we were there for over 2 hours and never even received our main course.

The place has always been such a great spot. Need to help out their servers as it seemed like it was too much for them to handle all by themselves.

Had a reservation but was seated all the way down the block next to parked cars on the street. Completely away from the main outdoor dining area where there were string lights and a nice ambiance. Felt like we were eating dinner isolated on a random city sidewalk, because we were. When I looked to my left, I was looking inside the window of a parked car. Was not the experience we wanted or expected. We were not walk ins - we had a reservation.

Salmon was completely raw in the middle.

Only 1 or 2 waiters for way too many customers. Sprinting back and forth, stressed out. Service was sub par because they were understaffed.

While the food was good and the value of our meal was great (due to a Pulsd deal), the noise level and vibe of the restaurant was terrible. What I thought was going to be a romantic Friday evening dinner turned out to feel like eating a meal in a club. Gnocchi and Chicken Francaise simply don't mesh well with blasting hip hop music. It was also difficult getting the attention of staff as the restaurant's small bar was heavily populated.

Food was okay.
Service was subpar. Perhaps server was new. She barely checked in. Ended up asking other servers for water, additional drinks, check etc...

Salad was good and so was portion. Unfortunately our entrees were extremely salty. My husband sent his back and didn’t bother to order another dish. I ate a bit of mine and then gave up. We decided to leave with no dessert. Our waiter, however was great and very attentive. Restaurant is loud but fine if you’re into that vibe.

I’d recommend for a birthday celebration, not a date night. Food was okay, service was pretty bad but i think the waiter was training. Overall better for a young crowd.

The food here was average. Unfortunately, the service was not great. It took a while for the waitress to come over to our table to acknowledge us or take drink orders. The appetizer was brought out after everyone got their food and the food was brought out at different times, so my husband finished his pasta before my children and I even received our food. With the amount of italian restaurants in NYC- I would go somewhere else next time.

I loved Galli when I first came to New York to visit. I made tonight’s reservation for a late Valentine’s Day dinner with my boyfriend and we were both disappointed with the food. I first ordered the Pollo dish and it was bland and flavorless. Tasted like an expensive buttered noodles. My boyfriend ordered the Bolognese and it was basically rigatoni with red sauce and a tiny bit of meat. The service was okay, but nothing great. Overall I’m really disappointed with the experience for a Valentine’s Day dinner and I don’t see myself coming back anytime soon.

You'd be hard-pressed to find another spot in SoHo that accommodates bigger groups, costs less than $30 per entree, and bears little resemblance to the incredibly snobby see-and-be-seen joints up and down the block. Our server was incredibly kind and didn't rush us through entrees or dessert, even though there was high demand for a table. The music was bass-heavy and loud, and the environs reminded me a little of a club (what with the neon art & dark interiors), but it's a place I'd go again in the neighborhood for delicious pasta in a responsible-yet-decadent portion.

Some of the entrees were good, some not so much. It would be a pretty loud place if they didn't play pretty loud music, but they do play pretty loud music, so it's not exactly a restful dining experience. Service was uneven and the waiter did that classic thing that I've never understood where he disappeared right as we wanted to get our check. We had high hopes for this place as it's only a couple blocks from our apartment, but I don't think we'll be going back.

What looks like a fun atmosphere with great food on Instagram is actually just a gimmick. The food lacked flavor and the drinks were beyond disappointing. Only thing saving this place is that pink neon sign and the attentive waiters. Our waiter was very pleasant and I felt bad that I had to send my drink back twice. It’s not his fault everything was basically inedible.

Service was terrible the food came out super fast like they had everything already made. The cheese plate had three small pieces of toast and a couple of cubes of cheese and some meat slices. The food wasn’t that great drinks take longer than the food to come out. Again service was terrible I had to ask the server or get his attention every time I wanted to order something. Ambiance was the best part. Long line for bathroom.
