Gallucci's does not disappoint. The pizza is absolutely delicious. Pasta and salads were also super tasty. It was a very busy Saturday evening and the staff was on fire. Great service. Would recommend and Old Towne is always a fun place to visit.

Beautiful weather allowed us to dine outside.
The servers recommendations were excellent.
Authentic Neapolitan cuisine.
We shared the octopus appetizer, and then shared two (personal size) pizzas.
We each had a glass of wine.
Total bill was about $80.00.

The waiter corrected us on how we pronounced Italian words properly and then spilled water all over the table. The appetizers were really great! But the pizza was too thin and fell apart before we could get it to our plate. We will not be going back

Had an amazing experience. Started off with a wonderful wine deal and a salad which was great. The pasta was delicious and the pizza blasting with flavor and truly one of a kind. Food was FRESH and came hot off the press! Staff was incredibly kind and made the experience even better. Will be back. Must go here!

Service was very slow took 15 minutes to get cocktails. The server was very nice but kept apologizing and even interrupting conversation just to apologize. After 12 times hearing apologies it became annoying.

The food made up for it and was very good.

This place is like a club because it is so loud - they refused to turn town the music despite that multiple people asked. Food and drinks were great but wouldn’t go back especially not with parents or grandparents. Couldn’t even have a conversation without yelling over the music.

Service was Horrible. 30 mins to be addressed by a waiter once seated. Wrong drinks were served. Food came out before drinks were corrected. One person never got the right drink. Server closed out our tab before offering dessert.

Rachel, First off Thank you for coming in. I would like to apologize for your experience yesterday. We were extremely busy and had a bartender and server call off. Excellence is our standard and you deserved nothing less. Please ask for me next time you visit ( Gianni ) and I will love to buy you a round of drinks and appetizers. See you soon.

Food was good overall. Pizza and the chicken sandwich w/ fries were 10/10 and so were the arancini. The vodka sauce was okay, probably wouldn’t get that again but I’ll definitely be going back to Gallucci!

We had lunch plans at 1 pm Sunday. The music was playing uncomfortably and oddly loud for this time of day, which was prohibitive to conversation. Hence, only a couple of patrons inside. We first asked for the music to be turned down, which the staff refused - claiming it was the atmosphere for the establishment. We then asked to be moved outside as it was quieter but the only table they would seat us at was directly in the sun. There were several unoccupied tables under umbrellas but they refused to seat us at any of these options. We therefore paid for the sparkling water that we ordered and left. The staff never apologized or expressed and regret. The entire experience, highlighted by the unaccommodating and tone-deaf behavior of the staff, was completely unacceptable.

Service was great, food was good, but it was terribly loud. It’s a small restaurant, most tables had 2-4 people, but the music made it feel like a nightclub. With masks it was nearly impossible to communicate with the wait staff, and conversations at tables were extremely difficult. It was a Saturday night on Wells, but it is still a restaurant and not a nightclub, so I would suggest turning the music down a bit to properly go with the ambiance.

Second visit. First time everything was fantastic. However, this visit, the manager was confrontational from the moment we walked in because we had one less person. We explained that it was a last minute cancellation and he could move us to a different table. It's not a great way to start dinner. We ordered app, drinks and entrees but unable to order dessert because we were told we had only 75 minutes versus 2 hours because we had one less person. It was really unfortunate because the food is great and both servers I've had have been wonderful. Manager really needs to be a bit more accommodating and tactful when dealing with paying customers.

Great food and service, however they have a "strict policy" on their music. They play rap and hip-hop and they have a bass speaker in the middle of the restaurant. It's incredibly loud. Would not recommend for anyone hard of hearing. When asked if they could turn the bass down a little bit, the waiter said "the restaurant management is strict" and they are told they cannot accommodate requests to turn down the music.

Thank you for coming by Rich, glad you loved our pizzas. We source out the highest quality ingredients and our customers love us for that. We are definitely proud of our prices since we provide the finest ingredients we can find. As far as you wishing us not to last, or making a prediction, we have never been this busy. Look for our name on the block since we are actually expanding. Goodluck Rich.

Ok let me tell you, the pizza here was the best gluten free pizza I have had in 10 years. My boyfriend actually had to ask me if it was really gluten free. My experience is solely off of gluten free food however if that’s how AMAZING the gluten free one is I can only imagine the real deal. I cannot wait to come back and enjoy pizza and pastas, which also has gluten free options. Highly recommend the pistachio and calabrese pizza. Finish off with a scoop of lemon sorbet and it’s the perfect meal. 10/10

We were really happy to get a reservation on a Saturday night in Chicago - with COVID restrictions it was difficult to find something that wasn't either super early afternoon or late night. I will say that it was off-putting to be told not only in our confirmation phone call but also as we arrived that there was a strict 90 minute time limit for our table. What if we kept ordering? What if we wanted a leisurely dessert? Would they have stopped taking our money and kicked us out?

Waitstaff was very attentive and friendly - a huge plus.

The stand out item on the menu for us was the fried seafood appetizer. It was divine. We both ordered pizza, and though the flavors were great, the bottom crust was super-soggy. Like, WET soggy. We had to eat them with forks. It was an odd thing to happen for a place that specializes in....pizza.

Probably would not go back, but the experience was decent.

Jeff, Covid really hit the restaurant industry hard and almost every place in the city has table times. We feel it to be courteous to remind our loyal patrons of their times so they are not surprised when their time is up. With limited seating, this is really the only way the restaurant industry can survive this horrible pandemic. The owner Gianni is a 3 time world champion in Neapolitan Pizza, which has a chewy crust with a wet center, so it is not odd its actually what we intend to serve.
