“Great evening”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

I went to Galleria with my partner and had a lovely evening. I ordered fillet steak which was cooked to perfection, possibly the best quality steak I have ever had. This was served with mashed potato and beans, the potato slightly too salty for my liking but still a nice dish. Great atmosphere and service. We will return in the near future!

Thank you for taking the time to write this fantastic review. We are really pleased that you had a great evening with us and thank you for the compliment on the steak you had. I made a decision a while ago to change my butcher, I am paying more but the quality is so much better. We hope to see you again in the future, kind regards Galleria Italiana

“Quite simply the best lasagna”
Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

My friend and i were on a day trip to worcester . As it was our first visit we didnt know what to expect and where to go for lunch . We saw a board advertising pasta salad or pizza for a set price and thought we would look inside as the outside was nicely presented . Well we were so glad we did ! From the moment we entered the service was superb . We decided to choose from the 2 or 3 course menu where you can have a starter main and or dessert for just under 10 pounds or just under sixteen . I chose lasagna and my friend ordered pasta we had a side to share of the garlic cheese bread . Delicious !! So fresh . I had tirramasu with ice cream and my friend had coconut tart with ice cream . We both had a lovely glass of wine too . Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and thinking of booking into a hotel for a weekend so that i can share this gem of a find with my husband ! Well done to the whole team , it was lovely to have a chat with the owner before we left too . Till the next time ..

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this wonderful review. It was a pleasure having you both in my Restaurant all we could hear was laughing which was great to hear. We are really pleased you enjoyed your meals, the lasagna is our own recipe. If you do book yourselves into a hotel please do not forgot to book early with us as we do get very full over the weekends. Kind Regards Galleria Italiana

“Great Italian!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

My friends and I chose this restaurant whilst on a residential course. Not knowing Worcester, we thought we would hit Trip Advisor and selected the restaurant at number one and we weren't disappointed.

I had a delicious squid, mussel and squid ink spaghetti dish. It was £13.50 so it was on the pricier side for a mid week meal. I asked for as little cream as possible and the resulting dish was perfect. The spaghetti was a great texture and I was glad no mussels came in shells due to the ink.

The owner had a pleasant chat with the 6 of us. The house red was well breathed and a good temperature. The complimentary limoncello at the end of the meal was well received.

Amongst my friends, the house risotto and pollo picante was well rated.

Thank you, I imagine we will be back!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely review. I am sorry that you felt the dish you had was a little pricey. The reason for this is that all the ingredients used are all fresh, from the squid, mussels and the black pasta also comes at a price. We cannot compete with the chain prices and their buying power but as you experienced we can very much compete with the quality and the personal touch. We are so pleased that yourself and the rest of your party enjoyed your meals with us. Kind regards Galleria Italiana

“Molto Bene!”
Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Outstanding, and well deserving of its place at the top of Worcester's restaurants. The staff went out of their way to look after us and our baby daughter. Lovely surroundings and decent prices to boot!

Definitely try to garlic bread with bolognese—and the calzone is huge! Highly recommended; we will be back.

“Excellent service”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We had a lovely meal we went for the lunchtime special menu. And opted for the 2 courses, and were not disappointed I had the vegetarian main and my daughter had Lasagna, then both opted for tiramisu for desert. The staff were really lovely and accommodated us and a 3 week old baby! Nothing was too much trouble. We will be recommending it to our friends.
