Not inexpensive but the food was outstanding and the service was beautifully timed. The time between courses was exactly right to maximize enjoyment. Not an every week destination but we'll be back for special occasions.

Food was excellent.
Service was just ok and the server was impersonal and not friendly to deal with.
May be the result of new personnel still working on perfecting their people skills.

Last night my wife and I had our first meal at Gallo Ristorante. It as a great experience. We had tickets to a show, so we had to be careful with timing. Our waiter was very good and the food came out on a timely basis, transitions were smooth and we never felt anxious about the time. The food was cooked to perfection and the chef created very complex, delicious flavors. The staff were all friendly and seemed to be very happy to be there.

We were there for an hour before we even were able to place our orders, it then took another hour for our food to come. The server never checked on us and we had to ask for more drinks etc. If it wasn't for the company it would of been an even worse review.

Sat on the patio under awning. Lights can on as it got dark and we’re very bright. It would be advised to have an electrician put dimmers on those circuits. People want ambiance when spending this kind of $. Food and service were excellent.

6pm reservation, allowing 90 minutes for app. and dinner, no dessert.
Wait staff asked twice during the initial ordering process about our time frame based on attending a local performance. (BTW, this restaurant is quite familiar with local performance time management, as they are one block away)
Entree was not served until 75 minutes (apps took 30 minutes) after ordering. We needed to leave based on performance and did not even have the opportunity to taste the entrees.
No apologies from proprietor, no care or concern regarding the customers needs.
First time experience for a highly recommended establishment. Sadly, a current and future revenue loss for Gallo.
The associate with the most concern was a bus staff member.

Solid menu, creative specials, well cooked and plated, experienced caring staff. All of this says 5 stars.
BUT
The manager was a disaster!!!
We dined outside under a large awning. A thunderstorm popped up suddenly. The spray began to blow sideways under the awning. The waitress asked if we wanted to finish inside. Yes, of course. Meanwhile the awning is RETRACTING. By the time we could get to the door, we were drenched. The manager stood there saying nothing. I said "Why didn't you warn us before you retracted the awning?" He replied: "It is sensitive to the wind and retracts automatically." Me: "Well you need to warn your guests beforehand so that they don't get soaked." Him: What do you want? It's a little water. Everybody is fine. What do you want?" (These were my exact words and his exact words said in a tone that was condescending at best.) I told him that I did not want anything and walked away. After being seated by our diligent waitress, I took the cloth napkin and pressed it on the top of my head. It was wet clear through. That is how wet we were.
Needless to say the restaurant needs to be proactive is keeping its diners dry in light of its Automatic Awning. Further the manager should be moved to the dishwashing position or fired immediately. With his attitude, he ruined an otherwise excellent evening.

We were a group of four and all were pleased with their dinners. Orrechiette, Lobster Risotto, Halibut, and Fettucine with cockles were great. Our server was knowledgable and efficient. We'll be back.

Food was excellent. Short ribs with pasta melted in my mouth. Service was great. Nice ambiance. Desserts were phenomenal. Only disappointment was fried calamari. Pieces were too large and flavor was okay. It was good - I guess I just expected “spectacular” for this restaurant.

Had a lovely meal outdoor on the patio. We shared the eggplant parmigiana which was excellent. I had the pasta with mixed seafood which was very good and my husband had the pasta with the ragu sauce. I also had a very nice glass of pinot grigio. Very nice overall experience and we would definitely return.
