My wife and I were in Worcester for one night and were looking for a place to eat. Walking down Friars St, we liked the look of Galleria Italiana's menu so popped in and made a reservation for later that evening.

On our return, we had a fabulous three-course meal that was pretty much close to perfect. Service was everything I want from a restaurant; quick, precise, friendly (but not intrusive) and efficient. Food was fantastic.

Antipasto Italiano - Yum
Bruschetta - Yum
Breaded Veal - Yum
Baked Meatballs with Penne Pasta - Double Rum

We were stuffed by that point, but couldn't resist an ice cream to share. And yep, that too was yummy.

Delightful looking rustic restaurant - exposed beams, fairy lights, cool interior.

My partner and I had the lunch special - two courses for £9.95 (or 3 for £12.95 - I think).

I had baked aubergines which were very nice - basic, but fine. I recently adapted the recipe myself and added ricotta and spinach which made it more flavoursome. I then had penne pancetta which was a good size, well cooked and well presented. Again, arguably a simple dish (but it's on the offer menu so can't complain).

My partner had the same main, but elected for bruschetta which was very tasty.

Two course, bottle of wine and sparkling water = £40

The pricing is reasonable - obviously meat or fish dishes are more expensive, but you get what you pay for. Go to Zizzi's/carluccios/pizza express and you'll get ditty portions and high prices - here you get good honest, independent food. We'll be going back soon.

Thank you for this lovely review. We offer a special lunch deal as you mentioned and it gives customers a good choice of dishes. Thank you for your comments regarding chain restaurants I have always said we cannot compete with their silly deals but we can compete with quality of our food and good portions. We look forward to seeing you again. Kind regards Galleria Italiana

We met up with friends and enjoyed a lovely meal here. We had a starter to share (antipasto) which was lovely and would recommend. We all had pizzas and finished with a lovely desert. We did have a lost drinks order but as soon as the staff realised the drinks had been forgotton we had our second beer on the house. You really had the feeling that the staff cared and it was important to them that you enjoyed the evening. We will look forward to returning again.

I've visited a few times now and I've never been disappointed here. I'm not from Worcester but whenever I visit I eat here, the pizzas are flawless. The staff are very quick and attentive too. Fair play to the management, you've got it spot on here! I always look forward to my next visit.
