A lovely warm evening, managed to reserve a table outside in this beautiful quiet (pedestrian only) street. Service was attentive and the food was really fresh and tasty.

Unfortunately we have to confirm last year disappointment. It was so good two years ago that we wanted to give them a second chance after last year flop. Tuna tartare was tuna in the blender (probably left over bits and pieces)... nothing else. It looked and tasted like baby food. Fritto calamari e gamberi was very poor. As far as... More

Is there anything worst than a restaurant which forgets a booking and than blames the customer? After facing the fact that they could find our booking anywhere, they start blaming us for calling the wrong number or setting the wrong date. The restaurant keeper showed no intention to solve the problem in any way. If you want to manage a... More

very large restaurant but they only seemed interested in serving you and turning the tables over quickly, despite the fact there were lots of other tables free.

I've been coming here for years as I have a house in Carloforte. I am never disappointed although I've learnt what to choose and what to avoid from the menu. Last week I eat a mixed starter of seafood including smoked tuna and swordfish, octopus carpaccio, and a tuna and tomato salad, all excellent. I avoid the fried fishballs which... More

Back to Galaia after a year. Still top of the list but nothing like the one we remembered. Being completely full-up didn't help, the welcoming family atmosphere is gone but most important the food has badly suffered! We were served very overcooked  spaghetti, tasty sauce but the pasta was so limp, acceptable maybe only to northern europeans! We don't like... More

We've been in Carloforte several times, discovered Galaia today thanks to Tripadvisor. It deserves to be n.1 The "spaghetti Galaia" were superb, nicely balanced and cooked to perfection, the "grigliata mista" was excellent and the lemon sorbet with mirto was a first. Large portions (we took some home), friendly service and good house wine. We paid 55 euro for the... More

We were looking forward to trying this restaurant after reading reviews, but were disappointed. When we asked for a table we were seated in the farthest corner of an empty room, despite there appearing to be lots of empty tables in other rooms. Consequently, we had to go looking for waiters rather than them finding us. The food when it... More
