Gallo Nero Ratings and Reviews
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.
Service was very good...Mario our waiter was terrific.
One thing.. the website said it has a prix fix menu for lunch for $14.95 for lunch.The menu which is probably old had it for $9.95. When I questioned it I was told they didn't have that and it was a mistake...but we were never told there was another instead, for $14.95. We all ordered off the ala carte menu and when the bill came, I showed Mario the website on my cellphone. He went inside obviously to talk to the boss who then gave us 15% off our bill. IT WAS A VERY NICE, HONORABLE thing to do. I highly recommend this restaurant. We were 12 people and every single one of us thought the food and service was excellent.
This restaurant is quite a find before the theater, or at any time. They have lots of homemade pasta, and they take great pride in their food preparation and presentation. The food was creative, delicious, and reasonably priced. The owner(s) and wait staff were charming and attentive. They were genuinely happy to have you there.
Pasta Carbonara was good
Grilled chicken was dry
Lasagna was bland + needed more sauce.
No Italian bread....what kind of Italian restaurant doesn't have bread to serve with the meal?!?!
We won't be back. Many other places to choose from near the Theatres
Food was good but noise levels were high. Due to the warm weather the exterior doors were open and since this is mid-town Manhattan the traffic noise was occasionally a bit much. Musical selection seemed inappropriate for a quite dinner in an Italian Restaurant. Possibly some genuine Italian music or some Sinatra and Dino would have been better.
Such a lovely restaurant. The food was cooked perfectly and if anyone at the table had a question, the staff members were all well-versed on the menu options (I love that!). The wait staff members were attentive to our table, so our water glasses were never empty and they were there to ask if we wanted more wine or a new beverage, truly on point. Their pasta was all fresh and handmade, which was lovely. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking a place for great food, a nice space to hear yourself chat with your friends, and great staff!
We were visiting NYC for a matinee, prior to the show we took a walk and stumbled upon this inviting, cozy restaurant. I promptly cancelled dinner reservations at another spot and made reservations to come back for dinner. It was such a welcoming , neighborhood restaurant , far enough away from the crowds of Broadway to be quiet, but close enough to walk. The food was delicious, my husband and I tried two entrees from the daily specials, our daughter loved the grilled chicken and arugula , and our boys the pasta and meatballs. Good wine list, yummy desserts and friendly staff. We lingered and enjoyed our meal with no pressure from staff to leave. Wonderful spot
Gallo Nero has been a favorite westside bistro since we discovered it with friends a few months ago, so we recently chose to celebrate a family birthday there. As always, the waitstaff and chefs provided a warm, casually elegant, memorable evening. We love this place!
