Gallo Nero Ratings and Reviews
Loved it! We went during the pre-theater rush and, yes, be prepared for tight quarters, but food and service was exceptional and other diners nice/polite. Black fettuccine was wonderful, enjoyed the Osso Bucco and the fresh burratta appetizer as well. Tiramisu was also spot on (along with the wine, espresso, and limoncello). Great experience - and was convenient to Richard Rodgers theater too.
I love this restaurant. It has become my go to for small or large group business meal. Authentic Italian that reminds me of being in Italy. Great Chianti and fresh pasta, seafood options and great staff. Nestled in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood and deserves to be there.
Do try the grilled octopus as an appetizer. It is a heaping plate of deliciousness. For an entree My husband had the lamb shanks over risotto. Tender and well seasoned. I had another appetizer of sausage and broccoli over Flatbread. A little too much mozzarella. We shared a tart ufo . Service is attentive and professional. We've been here before and will go back again
Very uncomfortably crowded. They should really take out a couple of tables and jack up the price to make up for it, because the food is pretty good, the service and welcoming attitude of the staff are fantastic, and the place is cute and in a great location for pre-show dinners.
This was my second time at the restaurant. I love the fact that it is small and quiet. You can actually have a conversation at the table. You can enjoy your meal without feeling rushed The food is well prepared and the choices for specials are fantastic! I will definitely be back to this restaurant again.
Small place near the theater district. We arrived early and were seated (about 15 minutes before our reservation) which I appreciated. We had an early reservation so the place was fairly empty but was filled when we left and hour and half later. Meatball app was very good as was the chicken, roasted pepper and cheese crostini. Everyone enjoyed their pasta dishes and the portions were generous. It's a bit tight in there but not too bad. Could be difficult with coats, bags, etc. but we were traveling light before a show on a Sat. night.
Very pleasant for a pre-theater dinner. The service was good and so was the food; not outstanding but good. However, the dessert was undercooked - the pear tart crust was raw and the ice cream frozen. The $5.00 fee for a cup of coffee was over the top. This is not a 5 star restaurant that warrants $5.00 for coffee.
Gallo Nero had a great menu featuring specials as well. The bruschetta was fabulous. We had the lobster ravioli and the hanger steak, and we were pleased with both meals. The limoncello for dessert was excellent - definitely homemade and delicious.
The place is rather small, so larger groups may have trouble getting tables. Since it’s small, it can be quite noisy. We would recommend this place to a friend and dine there again.
I went with a girlfriend to celebrate her birthday. We started with the pumpkin soup which was delicious . Than we shared eggplant parmagina & lasgnia . The eggplant was a little bland and the lasgnia was excellent. We ended with coffee & cheese cake and a pear tart which was excellent.
They also had a breakfast brunch when we were there on Sunday . We choose lunch.
Yes, I would recommend this Resturant .
The service was also very good. The busboy was always refilling our glasses with water.
Been many times. Nice place. Very nice service. Food didn’t have a lot of flavor. “Pumpkin” soup tasted like cream of chicken. Carrot pasta needed LOTS of additional salt. Noted in rez this was my special birthday dinner and no mention from anyone at restaurant. We’ve had nice and special meals there before; last night didn’t feel very special.
What a great restaurant! We had such a great experience dining here - wish we were staying longer so we could have returned. We were welcomed, made to feel comfortable and attentively served throughout our dinner. Order from the special menu - superb wine and creative in-house pasta were fantastic! All the little details too - water refilled often, bread and oil immediately, and although the place was packed our meals were prepared and served in easily enough time to get to the theatre right on time. Absolutely a wonderful evening - thank you.
Absolutely loved it! There were 6 of us, each had something different and everyone was pleased. perfect Italian comfort food. Fabulous pastas: the gnocchi, pumpkin ravioli with pesto and eggplant flavored linguini with langostino (all house-made) were perfect. Meatballs, pumpkin soup, eggplant parmesan, salads- all delicious! The wine was delicious and reasonably priced. A top notch restaurant that will be impossible to get into once the word gets out. Go soon (and, if it's cold out, try to get a table away from the front door). I'm going back first chance I get.
Excellent Italian wine list and handmade pasta dishes and some of the best bruschetta I have ever had in the city -- special kudos for the mushroom and tomato/basil versions! Crowded and noisy during pre-theater service, but otherwise a lovely, casual place for a very authentic Italian meal.
