“Very good for the area”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We were greated warmly and seated quickly. Despite the good waitstaff, the food here was only above average. Much better than an Italian chain restaurant, but not excellent. The gnocchi gorgonzola appetizer was good, with a nice sauce and real home made gnocchi. The gnocchi entree was missing the gorgonzola flavor. The veal saltimbocca came with a sauce that was a bit gelatinous for my taste. I would consider a second visit but would avoid some of the heavier sauces.

“Best Dining Experience”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

A dining experience not to be missed. You're greeted personally by the owner Luigi. His outgoing personality & smiling face set the mood. We plan this as the 1st & last stop on our vacation. The lobster tails over spaghetti is to die for. The Tartuffe dessert shouldn't be missed. The waitstaff treats you like the most important person in the world. They're knowledge of not only the menu but how the food is prepared is only surpassed by their knowledge of wines. How they remember everyone from year to year is amazing. Our dining experience ends with Luigi personally seeing us to say goodby as we leave. No one should miss the food & experience at Villa Gallace.

“Top Notch Italian”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

I can't believe the previous reviewer is talking about Villa Gallace. I have been there many times and the food and service is constantly very good. Latest visit was 4/19/2013. The owner greeeted us at the door and treated us like we were his favorite customers ( we noticed he greets everyone and on leaving asks how everything was) that's why I can't understand the previous review. In any case I had the linguine with white clam sauce. It's my favorite and one of the items I use to judge Italian restaurants. Well it was outstanding, loaded with tender clams and very tasty. My wife ordered the rack of lamb special and it also was very tasty and done to her order(medium). Villa Gallace is a must dine when your in the area. I might add I am Italian and from New York, so I think I know a little about Italian food.
