Great Service

We were in need of late night food. We saw good reviews about Gallina's pizza so we tried it. The staff were very nice and fun to talk to. Their phone was ringing non-stop and they were taking calls after close. Great family business. The pizza was reasonably prized and delicious.

My family and I went on the same night of the Christmas parade. We were looking for a place to eat near the route, and stumbled upon Joe's. I think a lot of others had the same thought. They were clearly not prepared or equipped for the amount of business they received. They handled it very well, but the times... More

Excellent pricing on lunch specials and the pizza is one of my fav in the city. Great older style atmosphere and authentic italian owners and recipes. Definitely a place to return

Just not impressed. Food was mediocre at best. One guy in our group waiting about 25 minutes during lunch for 2 slices of pizza. My chips I got with my meal for over 2 years past expired. Not worth complaining because just didn't seem like it'd matter

What a gem! This place is amazing. Everything was delicious and I'm so full yet I'd eat more. Pizza is incredible and it's very affordable. Might have to go back again before we go home.

Ordered a special and it was like visiting New York or Chicago Pizza Parlor. Crust was just right, topping galore and cheese was perfect. We sat near the window and watched the pedestrians while enjoying our pizza. 1st time in Springfield but certainly will re-visit, what is surely one of the better pizza joints in the country.

We went to Gallina's in search of Chicago-style deep dish pizza. Although this option is listed on the menu, it is NOT the deep dish you find in the Windy City. The "Gallina Special" was tasty but not what we were hoping for.

Pretty good pizza for a fair price. The pizza had lots of topping and cheese on it. The sauce was good but was not what I would call new york style. I was a little more zesty than new York style. All around a pretty good pizza though.

Looking for a place to have a family dinner and we found Gallina's. It was delicious! I personally loved the atmosphere. You can tell this is a family business by a family who loves it. Our food took long enough we knew they were making it, and not so long that we were starving. :) It was great, and we... More
