What a gem this restaurant was to find on our beach getaway weekend. We were welcomed warmly and the service from our waiter was excellent. The hot, fresh bread & garlic/pepper dipping oil was delicious, the salads were fresh & tasty and our meals were hot and tasty. This restaurant reminds me of a charming, authentic, family owned place you'd go to in Little Italy. Highly recommended~

We were turned away because we brought our own bottle of wine ?? We offered to pay a $20.00 corkage fee and even pointed out that some people only order water to drink to drink with their dinner, but the profit driven owner could only say "sorry, it's just our policy" ....I wonder how many people only ordered ice tea this evening, Bad Business...Watercolour's was great !!

The Indian Rocks/Largo area is loaded with Italian/pizza places, but Villa Gallace is the only true Italian fine dining restaurant for miles around. Homemade pastas and gnocchi, top quality veal and seafood, and desserts worth saving room for, have brought be coming back here for over 10 years. Yet no good restaurant would be worth returning to unless the ambiance and service were met the level of the food, and I'm happy to say that they indeed do. From the warm greeting at the door, usually by Luigi, to the well trained servers, who pay you just the right amount of attention without becoming annoying; well you just can't go wrong. Keep an eye on your local newspaper for occasional coupon specials, particularly if you enjoy wine with your meal.

Villa Gallace is always a consistent choice and a amazing experience for a great meal and enjoyable evening. The staff have an amazing knowledge of the menu and honestly, every entre on the menu sounds so good it's difficult to choose! The food is elegant and an explosion of flavors that you could eat every day or turn into a celebration. Once you get there, you're in for a real treat!

Food was gross and the staff was less than friendly. Ordered the veal piccata and it basically tasted like they used a gallon of lemon juice for the sauce and nothing else. When I explained to the manager why I didn't eat it he replied with "well, have you ever had piccata before?!" The other food that was brought to the table was not great either. Would have had better food & service from a chain restaurant. Mario's in Madeira is 100% better.
