Service was good, nice friendly and personal, food prices are reasonable and an extensive wine list. Our Welcome on entry probably could do with some work but once seated ,service was attentive. Maybe I was expecting more after our La Fattoria visit last week, LOL....More

The best Italian restaurant in Perth continues to live up to its reputation. No longer the cheap midweek treat for the family; Galileo certainly justifies its cost with superb cuisine, professional staff and wonderful ambience. Not surprisingly you need to book well ahead for dinner....More
