At Gallo, we take our time to source the best ingredients so we can craft outstanding and authentic Italian Cuisine; that means right down to the Tomatoes in our sauce and the oil in our pans.


Our chefs come in at 5AM to turn hand-ground flour and farm fresh eggs into the pasta and pizza you’ll eat tonight. So whether you’re here to spend hours in our dining room or just stopping by for a quick bite at our bar.

Eat Well, and Live Long: time is on your side.

It was Mother’s Day brunch, so the place was packed at first, and it was very noisy. However, the service was still great, and we didn’t wait too long for the food. The menu was limited, but everything was delicious. It was expensive, but you get what you paid for. It was well worth it.

Fantastic meal and great service. Everything was cooked to perfection. Had the chic pea fritter for appetizer; it was a special. So delicious! The eggplant Parmesan appetizer was also outstanding. I could make a meal of it. Loved everything including the house wine selections.

Food was good, service was terrible, slow and had to wave the server down any time we needed anything. Waited for 20 minutes at the table before a drink order was taken.

Love Gallo. The food is excellent. I had a kale salad that was amazing. The shrimp cocktail was fresh and delicious. My husband had pizza which looked delicious. We go there whenever we go to the playhouse. Be back in June!!

Gallo Ristorante helped my family and I create a memorable Easter celebration that we will not forget. We felt welcomed immediately and our waitress Sara took care of all our needs. The food was exemplary, better than I could imagine since I dined at Gallo only once before.
My family is very difficult to please - Gallo surpassed all of our expectations. Cannot wait to dine again soon.

Tucked into a quiet corner in Ridgefield, Gallo is also just steps from the Ridgefield Playhouse, but it's also a destination for fine Italian cooking (especially pastas) and friendly competent service. We were pleasantly surprised by the restaurant and intend to make it a regular visit.

Had the spaghetti in Parm wheel.. tasteless. My sister had the eggplant.. salty. Burrata and arugula appetizer was good but very small piece of burrata. My daughter had the branzino ... very good but for the price tiny portion. Also, very noisy!!dont think we’ll be back.

It was mediocre, at best. We had seafood dishes and they were pretty boring, mainly because the seafood was clearly frozen. For 27-28/for a pasta dish, that's not acceptable. The whole experience, including the valet parking, seemed to project and image to which the restaurant could not live up.

We made reservations one week prior and our only request was for a quiet, corner table. We arrived a few minutes early and after waiting the owner brought us to a high top table in the bar. When I explained that we had a reservation and politely reminded him of our request, he replied that they were very busy and that we could wait at the bar. He comped my glass of wine and my wife's club soda, which was a nice gesture, but that was lost when he then sat us at a make shift table in front of the kitchen and bathroom entrance. The food was decent, though nothing special, and the service poor. Our server never came back to out table after our food was served, except for the check. Overpriced, indifferent and rushed. We will never return and will be sure to share our experience with our friends and on social media. Thankfully many other superior options in and near Ridgefield.

Definitely a good place for a special occasion. The staff, food, and ambiance were all great. This was our first time going out in Ridgefield, and Gallo made this experience one to remember. We will certainly remember this location for the future and tell others that our time was well spent here.

Great place for a quiet date night or dinner with friends. Delicious, fresh food and nice wines. Service was very friendly and the restaurant has a nice relaxing and cozy ambiance. Will absolutely be going back and bringing more people when I do. Not your typical run of the mill Italian place.
