Excellent, creative apps - chick pea fritters and bresaola arugula to start were truly excellent. Three entrees in order of preference: chicken rollatini, lasagna, and the pistachio sole special (more like cod and just a pile of chopped pistachios on top of the fish). Yummy, decadent mocha crunch ice cream dessert.

Tables were well separated, staff all wore masks and the atmosphere was relaxing. What more could one ask for in a pandemic?

Great food, staff was very good. Once we finished our food no one was rushing us out to turn over the table. Owner was visible throughout the evening- overall a great restaurant and we will be back.

Had a lovely Easter meal that was both delicious and timed well with the salads. We were seated in the bar area which made it lively and casual. Once the large party also seated in the bar area left, it was almost too quiet and we wanted some company! We'll be back for the next special occasion.

A wonderful Valentines menu that consisted of the biggest shrimp you can imagine in the shrimp cocktail that were perfectly cooked accompanied by the most flavorful and tender blue crab cakes, followed by a unique creamy, lobster risotto accented by orange citrus. The main course was a duo of NY Strip and Chilean Sea Bass. Both were perfectly seasoned and cooked, but the stars were the sauces that accompanied both. It was all finished off with a generous slice of chocolate raspberry cake that was rich and moist, but not overly sweet. We’ll be going back for more.

It's a lovely restaurant with very nice staff. Unfortunately, the food didn't seem quite what we thought it would be. Lovely presentation but taste was lacking especially in the appetizers. We will definitely try it again some day but maybe for lunch instead.

I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant very comfortable feel in this pandemic. The food was delicious and they were accommodating to one of the guests special needs. The Ossobucco was delicious very soft and flavorful. The branzino was made to our guests special diet and was moist and flavorful. The creme brûlée was light and delicious with a nice cappuccino. Would recommend this restaurant and will return soon.

I first went to Gallo Ristorante because of its close proximity to The Ridgefield Playhouse. I loved the establishment immediately, whether to enjoy a cocktail at the bar, or to sit down to a fine meal. I have been back numerous times, as it has certainly become a favorite restaurant of mine, if not THE favorite restaurant of mine. The atmosphere is terrific, and the staff is diligent in following all COVID safety guidelines, which is reassuring during these difficult times, allowing for a night out. The menu is delicious and the specials are constantly changing. I usually go there with an idea of what I will be ordering based upon my most recent fabulous meal, wanting to duplicate my last experience, but I always order a new tempting special and I have never been disappointed. Each meal is rated a 10!! The staff is nothing short of professional and attentive to every need. I must specifically name the wonderful waiter Louis, who contributes to makes our dining experience a wonderful event each and every time we visit Gallo Ristorante!!!
