Good standard for coffee and cake

Just passing and sat outside for coffee and cake. Pleasant and helpful staff and tasty and fresh food. They serve larger meals which looked equally inviting.

I love this place more and more each time I go, although I did have one disappointing starter one night - major surprise - there has to have been a different chef on - the food was soon different. But I cannot fault the place in general and they do take away as well as sit down service.

We were staying overnight in Clonmel and came across this lovely Italian restaurant. My husband had a Galileo pizza, I had calzone pizza and our 7yr old son had pepperoni pizza. The food was equally as good, if not better, than the food at our favourite Italian restaurant near where we live. We were offered the children's menu which we... More

Have eaten here on many occasions. I would have lunch here which is gorgeous. Their menu covers everything from steak sandwich (which I normally have~devine) to pasta dishes and pizza. The food is cooked fresh so everything tastes amazing. When I'm on a night out with friends I would either have steak or the chicken caccitori (not spelled correctly) Their... More

Brilliant good quality food , always a great buzz around as well as the best pizza in Clonmel the only thing that Galileo lacks is more space seating is a little squished !

This is an ideal restaurant to meet up with friends or go to with your family for an economical and thoroughly enjoyable meal. We were there recently and loved the meal, found the staff helpful and area clean. we will definitely return.

Have dined in galileo on many occasions and very much enjoyed it. Most recently dined here two weeks ago. It was a busy Saturday night so luckily we had booked a table. Had two starters, and two pizzas for under €40 - good value in my books. The food is always simple, tasty with quick and efficient service
