Italian
Galli Restaurant features Italian comfort food and exceptional cocktails on charming, cobblestoned Mercer Street in the heart of Soho. Guests will find old school, classic Sicilian recipes that are as iconic as the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District itself. 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.

Everything was amazing, service was very fast. My girlfriend and I were there for our anniversary dinner in the food met our expectations, but we would have liked to take our time and not be rushed. Overall great though!

GREAT friendly neighborhood place. WONDERFUL food at reasonable prices too. Staff is just the best, efficient and care! Great mix of young people and long term Soho residents. We find sound level too high, but other than that its about as good as you can get!

I went here for a birthday dinner with 6 friends and the food was delicious. We split the magic mushrooms and mozz chips and everyone got their own plate. The chicken parm was out of this world. And a free bottle of wine on Mondays, what could be better!

Two moms took 4 college age girls to Galli on a Thursday night. Had a reservation and as soon as we all arrived we were seated (nice host showed us to the bar to wait). Once seated, waiter was attentive but didn’t rush us to decide on drink or food order. Yes, the restaurant was loud but had good energy and the girls loved the atmosphere. Cocktails & wine were delicious, food was good...chicken parm & pasta was a bit salty, salmon was good not great but two had shrimp salad and loved it. Overall, cool atmosphere, good food, great drinks and nice waiter. Also, love the area! I would recommend if you want a lively dinner spot.

I have been to Galli a few times and would highly recommend this restaurant to family and colleagues. The menu is excellent, portions are generous and the food is just delicious. The service is always great and the waiters always provide good guidance on choices. I can't wait to return. My only issue is that there is always a long wait for the bathroom. :)

Really cool place. Very casual atmosphere with excellent service. Food was very good. It is a bit on the noisy side but some of that was due to an extra loud group of ladies who in fairness were out having some fun. Great spot.

The back room is pretty with a brick wall and glass ceiling. I had the Caesar wrap and fries. The wrap was good but the fries were chunky, dry and tasteless!! Cocktails were strong and good.
Not rushing to go back anytime

Galli is a gem! Nice bar area with incredible staff! The ambiance was comfortable with appropriate background music. Service is the restaurant was timely and the food is probably the beat part of our experience. Five of us had very different dishes - pasta, seafood and chicken with different salads, and we all were very happy! The portions are just right, and the value of the entire meal with alcohol was incredible. I would highly recommend Galli for any occasion and look forward to another visit when I’m in NY again.

Het eten is matig, niets bijzonders. De bediening brengt de starters en het hoofd gerecht tegelijk, waardoor je binnen 30 minuten weer buiten staat. Fast food service met een hoge prijs. Nooit meer.

Love, love, love the location and environment! Our server was a bit busy, so we didn’t get our bread and drink orders in for quite a while after getting seated. Food was great — would stick to the more sauce-filled dishes next time and skip the “salciccia” — May have gotten a little sick from it.

There are pro's and cons to this place. An attractive old brick building, however, it draws a younger crowd and is impossible to hear your dinner partners. Menu is nice and food is good, however, all of our main courses were way too salty.

Everything started off great, the server brought out the drinks and first course. I ordered the arugula salad, it was amazing. The entree was brought out and I was still trying to finish my salad, I felt pressure to either stuff my face with the rest or not finish it. I did not get to finish the salad do to the fact my entree was ready. I felt very rushed and was very disappointed. The food runner was not apologetic.

The food was okay. The stuffed mushrooms were drenched in some kind of sauce and had too much garlic. The rigatoni was fresh but over cooked. There’s potential but it just didn’t hit the mark during our dining experience.

The weirdest vibe imaginable, like someone put a nightclub crowd in a half-decent restaurant. I couldn't even hear my other diner for the majority of the meal, and they were playing music I'd expect to hear at a college reunion. Food was good, but not worth the price, particularly for the ambiance or lack-thereof. Cocktails were the only thing that was worth it.

The front of the restaurant is quiet and the back is very loud. The food was okay, we had mozz chips with pomodoro sauce, chicken parm sliders. The sauce is what makes the mozz chip okay to eat, the sliders were regular. For our main the penne alla vodka was super salty, the chicken marsala was decent the sauce added flavor the chicken itself was bland. The restaurant was in a great location but the food needs a few upgrades.
