We went to Galletto's before a 7:30 show at the Gallo Center on a weeknight. We made reservations for 5:30 and ordered our meal at 6:00. We told the waitress that we would be going to the show so that she knew that we were...on a timetable. At 6:45 we asked if our food would be coming out soon and our waitress said, "Sorry, we're really busy". Well, that may have been true, but it had already been 45 minutes! Our food finally arrived at 7:05!!!!! I usually am not very critical and try to give people some slack, but this is just not acceptable! To pay that much for a meal and not even have time to really enjoy it was very frustrating. This was a beautiful restaurant and we were on the heated patio. It was a wonderful setting, but unfortunately the service was less than spectacular.More

I've been eating here since this place opened, and while I no longer live in Modesto, I dine here whenever I pass through. It is still every bit as good as when it opened: atmosphere, service, and food. Highly recommended.

I lived in Modesto when Ton and Karen opened their restaurant years ago. The food was great then. Although I have moved to the coast, whenever I pass through this part of the valley I eat here -- and it is as good as I...remembered it. Their outdoor courtyard is a great setting; grapevines, fountains, and plants. The food is excellent. We had one of their pizza and an artisan ham sandwich on a baguette. Delicious! If you are in the area, this is a "must-eat" place.More

We have had excellent food and wine at Galletto's! The atmosphere is elegant and quiet. We have found most places are so very noisy that it becomes difficult to carry on a conversation. The wait staff is very attentive as weel.

This place is amazing, five star food, five star service and five star wines! The flagship restaurant for Gallo winery, a truly elegant experience and a memorable meal. The Harris Ranch steak was perfectly seared, as was the pork back and the green beans. The...clam chowder was some of the best I’ve had and I work the New England corridor too. While the mixed green salad could have been fresher, they more than made up for it with everything else. This was one of the finest dining experiences, thus far! We will definitely be back!More

Located in an charming downtown this restaurant is gorgeous with fantastic food. Warm setting in an old bank building. Upscale Italian food with great service. Probably one of the best steak salads I have ever had.

This is one of the few restaurants that offers fine dining in Modesto. Service was great, waiter was very attentive and polite. Good clean interior and nice ambience. We ordered a steak dinner and a surf & turf special with salads. Salads were served almost...immediately, with fresh abundant greens and topped with small anchovies. I really don't like anchovies but these were surprisingly well cured and provided an interesting topping. My steak portion was very large and both of us were quite happy with our meal. They have a very nice wine list and most beverages were reasonably priced. Come her for busines, for pleasure or just for the food, but be prepared to pay well for a good meal in a very nice environment. They do not require jackets or ties and you can go there in casuals.More

We met early for drinks and then when we were seated the wait staff was excellent. Dinner was great and the scallop appetizer was really good. I would highly recommend the salmon for dinner

If you're looking to impress someone in Modesto this is THE restaurant. Food is very good but the prices are sky high for this area, about what I'd expect to pay in San Francisco. Have dined here a number of times but never my choice.
