This place is totally underrated. I'm honestly not sure why they aren't more busy. They are how most Italian restaurants SHOULD be - all homemade pastas. It was AMAZING!

Place has gone way down hill over the years I will not go back. Place was freezing inside heat must be off , they were out of some stuff on menu it’s a Friday night at 7pm if your out then that just plain poor planing. No specials what Italian restaurant has no specials on a Saturday night. I turns around to get a waiters attention and they are all on there cell phones texting or facebooking right in front of the owner and she said nothing. It’s a shame place used to be really good

We love this place! Our first experience here was several years ago with a group for our wedding rehearsal dinner and we were so impressed with the service, the delicious food, and the great prices we’ve come back several times for our wedding anniversary, New Year’s Eve (2017/18), or anytime we just want a great meal and a warm and welcoming environment. They continue to impress. Can’t miss with this simple & lovely spot!

I had booked at table for 12.30 and received a confirmation. It was my husband’s birthday. We arrived a little early - the restaurant shows its opening hour as 10. The door was unlocked but there was no-one around.
We came in and waited. Eventually one of the chefs appeared, saw us but ignored us. After a few minutes of waiting we called through to the chef and asked about lunch. He shrugged and said there were no waiters there and he didn’t know what time the waiters would be there.
We cancelled and left. Very disappointing.

Terrible Service. We had a 6 pm reservation and we told them we were attending the Celtics game later that night and 50 min late we still had no food. The staff was ignoring our table and did not offer any drink refills while we waited. After we tracked them down to ask where our food was, they informed us it would be 15 min longer because two large parties had come in. If you can not handle a large party, do not take a large party. We ended up walking out and not receiving any food. Staff was rude and took no responsibility. Do not go here.

Brought our son and daughter-in-law here for their last night in Boston. As usual, La Galleria 33 did not disappoint. The kids enjoyed every taste and my husband said that his Veal Parm was the best he’s had in Boston yet. And he entertains vendors weekly for the last 3 years.
Will definitely return again

We waited 1.5 hours for our average tasting, overpriced North End dinner. The waitress never acknowledged our entrees taking an hour to arrive (two appetizers and a pasta), but bought my husband a glass of wine while I was in the bathroom.

The manager/hostess rolled her eyes at me as we were leaving and I asked to speak to her.

Having managed restaurants in NYC for many years, I was shocked she would be so rude before I said a word about the miserable service.

I understand being short staffed and overwhelmed and tables getting lost. I don't understand not speaking to the table to acknowledge the screw up and being rude when a 'guest' approaches the host/manager. She said she had no idea our order was lost, but open kitchens are very revealing, even if you've never worked in the industry.

I hope that if you read this you spend your money and time elsewhere.

Making customers feel like a nuisance at 8pm on a Saturday night is not a way to do business.

I wouldn't be writing a review if they were remotely professional or the food was amazing. No one said sorry, no one cared. This place is a mess.

Selected your restaurant due to the Gordon Ramsay show but mostly wanted to meet the two owners who seemed so authentic and determined. The fact that they are still opened is a tribute to their desire to succeed. The staff and food were fantastic and do not regret our selection. Came all the way from Québec City, Canada for this and would do it again in a flash.

We had a reservation, but our waiter wasn't all that interested in us when he learned we were ordering just a few small plates rather than larger more expensive entrees. He rushed us through taking our plates very quickly each time. Never asked if we wanted a second glass of wine. When we ordered dessert he didn't offer coffee or anything else other than the check. While we were putting on our coats, they were clearing the table. If you're looking for average food, rushed service and unfriendly wait staff then I suppose you'd like this place. I didn't and would not go back.

Took over 1.5 hrs to get our food. The service was below par but the food was even worse. The price was very good compared to competing restaurants. I would recommend spending a little extra money and go anywhere else.

I chose this restaurant because my favorite pasta dish is cannelloni with white sauce and it was on their menu. Although the menu said white sauce and tomato sauce, I asked the waiter if the red sauce could be left off, and he said it was no problem. My order came and it was delicious! I also had a Caprese salad and it too was wonderful. I highly recommend this restaurant!

The pasta was excellent, the bread was fresh and warm. The food came out relatively fast and it was cute and romantic. Relatively fairly priced for the North end. Centrally located, easy to get from one place to another, not far from north station. Everyone in my party greatly enjoyed their meal. Will be returning.
