“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I have been to the Galleria many times, and each time we cannot fault the service or food! Our last visit was for our wedding anniversary and what a fabulous evening we had! The friendly staff, and attentive service was first class. Then the food arrived; the starters were so fresh and tasty, the main courses were wonderfully delicious and the lemoncello cheesecake was awesome!! We can't wait to return!

“Worcester's #1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

I have been meaning to post a review for a long long time and I can only hope that this review contributes to getting Galleria Italiana at number 1 as they really deserve the top spot. Having eaten at most restaurants in Worcester, the service at Galleria is impeccable and I always look forward to seeing the staff who create a great atmosphere and are welcoming. The fillet steak here is some of the best I've ever had and I consider myself quite the connoisseur!! I recently dined here with my sister and her Australian boyfriend who doesn't like mushrooms (sigh...) the staff were very accommodating and told him the chef could make him any sauce he wanted! When I was trying to be good they'd tailor any dish too. They are brilliant! Never had a bad meal here and I thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

Thank you for taking the time to write this fantastic review of our Restaurant. As we cook fresh we can always accommodate any special requirements or tastes. The fillet steak we use is from a local butcher and is of a high quality. We are so pleased that you all enjoyed your meals and thank you for your continued support. Kind regards Galleria Italiana

“Awesome experience, awesome food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We stopped in at the Galleria on Tuesday Sept 3rd for lunch. We had heard from friends in Worcester that this was one of the best Italian restaurants in town. We were on our way back to California, USA after a visit to Worcester, so didn't have too much time, but decided to go. I ordered the Margareta pizza, and my wife ordered the lasagna. Simply put, this is the best Italian food we have ever eaten, and we've been to many restaurants all over the world! The Pizza had a homemade crust with all fresh ingredients, the best with the little cherry tomatoes, and fresh basil. My wife said the Lasagna was to die for, with a creamy tomato sauce, and the meat inside the lasagna was indescribably good, like mini meatballs within homemade pasta and béchamel/ricotta sauce. To start we also had the bruschetta with fresh crostini, tomato, and mozzarella and basil pesto. Just superb food and the service was exceptional.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this wonderful review. "What can I say " this is a wonderful compliment to receive, we source all our ingredients locally and everything we do is prepared fresh. Our lasagne is made in-house by a great team of passionate chefs and as for the pizzas fresh dough is made on a daily basis. We are so pleased that we did not let your friends down who recommended us and if you are ever back in Worcester we would love to see you again. Kind regards Galleria Italiana.

“Great food, lovely service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

As always the italian warmth and friendliness shone throughout the whole night. The trattoria like cellar environs was both modern and traditional. We had the seafood platter and antipasti to start, really generous and tasty starters. Main we all had pizzas, which where a little chunky, but still tasty and homemade. The wine selection is varied, genuine and inexpensive! I'd recommend this restaurant if you are in Worcester.
