The food is reasonably priced and the portions are generous. Most of the mains on the menu, except the steak, seem to be in and around a tenner. I love the atmosphere, it always reminds me of being on a foreign holiday! I'm not a fan of how cramped the upstairs seating arrangment is because it seems like all the... More

Dined here for my birthday recently. There were 24 of us. The service I must say was excellent, staff very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent - top class. It makes such a difference to be able to bring your own wine - and we also brought a birthday cake. Really good service - well done.

This place has improved a lot since I was there last. Several unpleasant experiences a couple of years ago with the most obnoxious waitress ever meant I'd resolved never to go back. But I decided to give it another try one Friday at lunchtime. Thankfully 'Miss Personality of the Year' wasn't there. Whether she's not working there any more or... More

Really nice food, reasonably priced, free corkage, busy in a good way. Nice selection of Italian food to suit most tastes. I was there as part of a couple but can see it could be a good spot to bring family. Happy customer

We eat at Galileo often enough, it's a lovely spot to have a nice pizza or pasta but it's just not at the top of the list. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it, the food is good, service generally good . It's just a regular spot and you won't regret visiting. For me , it needs more comfy seating, and... More

It was a busy lunchtime, but I waited for ages to attract attention to ask for a table, and eventually just took one. I felt sorry for the waitresses, as they were young and maybe inexperienced to deal with a lunch rush. At no point did anyone make eye contact when I wanted to order, the waitress seemed embarrassed and... More
