Great Pizza

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... read more

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.

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

We have eaten here before and the food is always excellent. The sauce is great and the bread is amazing! Great place for a slice for lunch or a Lasagna for dinner!

We were very happy we found this Italian/Pizza Restaurant in downtown Springfield. When visiting the area we found their menu at our hotel. The dinner prices were very inexpensive where the Friday dinner special is Lasagna for only $7.50. You sometimes wonder with these prices if the food is any good but we decided to give it a try and... More

Great pizza even if the crust was a bit hard but the delivery guy was awesome. The price is a little pricy at $15.00 for a medium two topping but I thought it was worth it. Overall a good experience and I'll order from them again.

I went here after reading how good the food was and the reviews were correct. Very authentic Italian pizza. The guys in back of the counter were very nice and friendly. There wasn't a lot of people there so we got our food quickly but after a while the place started to get really busy. This definitely looks like a... More

I've read some of the last reviews posted, and I just wanted to say that is place has a ton of regulars. It may be small, but they have a lot of business. We stopped in during the snow storm, and they were still slightly busy with deliveries and pick ups. The staff is very interested in their customers and... More
