Very unsatisfactory experience on Sunday. Ordered online for 11:15 pickup. Arrived promptly at that time, and the food hadn't even been started. It took a full half hour for the food to be prepared. When brought out, the chef was quite irritated, and was yelling...at the waitstaff. No consideration given, except husband (who was picking up, and waiting this entire time) was offered a drink. Waitperson said the order was misread, they thought it was for 1:15. I still don't understand why it would take one-half hour to prepare. We have ordered takeout from Galatis several times, and it seems that just about every other time, there's a problem. Once, they forgot silverware, and we were eating at my son's new home--nothing was unpacked. So we had to go purchase from the convenience store. Also the forgot one salad.More

The wait staff was very out going, sincere, thoughtful and just plain NICE. From the waitress, to the bartenders, all wave, say hi and just plain friendly

Went her for a birthday lunch and was disappointed in the size of the portions. The salad was average and chicken about the same - nothing special. Quality was so-so. I won't be back.

My wife and I have eaten at Galati's numerous times both at their present site and at their former site near the train station. If you don't know where you're going, Galati's can be hard to find. While its signage is good, it is located...well back from Route 14. They serve good Italian fare--chicken parm is my favorite. I have always been impressed by their soups. This evening my wife and I had corn chowder. The portion was large and delicious. All portions at Galati's are large. You always take food home. They also have a nice bar with large television screens. The bar and dining room are separated. I appreciate that. Look for Galati's--it is worth finding.More

We had a celebration of life party in one of their private upstairs rooms. Galati’s management and staff were great to work with, the room worked perfectly for our group and the food was very good. We were able to use their TVs for a...slide show and their speaker system for our own music. There was a private bar in the room with a bartender for our group. I would definitely recommend Galatis for a private party. They do an excellent job!More

My wife and I stopped here for dinner while in this area. We both ordered their chicken parmesan which was pretty good. Our server was prompt and efficient and the restaurant was clean. Would stop here again when in this area.

Historically the food has been above average at best. However, I would say that the quality of the food has now significantly declined! The pasta was pasty, over cooked, and it lacked flavor! Not sure what’s going on, but they are in need of an...overhaul!More

stopped here for a drink and appetizer in the bar. Second time we had the server Allison. she is friendly and welcoming. The lemon drop martinis are the best! Have eaten in the restaurant a few times and always plenty of food.
