Just dined here for the first time the other day. So glad we did...amazing and authentic Italian cuisine prepared in - house. Lovely European atmosphere on the Kennebec River right in downtown Augusta. They serve Italian bread with a delicious aioli as well as with a serving of bruchetta tomatoes. Caesar salad was fresh and crisp with just the right... More

Real pizza with high quality ingredients. Homemade sauce, homemade dough, homemade sausage. Real mozzetta and fresh mushrooms. This pie is the real deal, we can now get takeout pizza that's just flatout great.

I've had a few meals at Gagliano's Italian Bistro, they are a diamond restaurant in downtown Augusta, Maine. The quality of food, I love the Pumpkin Ravioli, is divine.

Absolutely delicious food in an unassuming location. Family owned, serving recipes handed down the generations. A real find!

Small Italian restaurant located in an unassuming location. Servers and cooks who truly care about the quality of service and food. Top notch food. The atmosphere is a little lacking but a minor gripe compared to the overall experience.

I was so pleased to find this wonderful, romantic little place. Family owned and it shows. Awesome food, great personal service and a nice local environment. It's not Olive Garden, it's like being in Italy....Will return often....

No need to deconstruct or reinvent Italian cuisine to be popular. In fact, traditional flavors and hominess are staples at Gaglianos. The cuisine is rich and flavorful, reassuringly Italian. Signature dishes include lobster risotto for two, abalone carpaccio and lamb alla Romano. The waiters aren't excessively fawning and the prices aren't excessively high and the food is various but not... More

The Pasta Dishes were amazing. We had a Restaurant.com gift that we used to dine there. It was a bit on the pricey side however the food more than made up for the price.

The owners are very friendly and gracious and the restaurant is very nice and tastefully decorated with warm candle light at dinner time. The wine list is superb. I... More
