“Amazing Italian Fare”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

I have been to Italy many times and I assure you, you will not find better Gnocchi than Villa Gallace's gnocchi.


They absolutely melt in your mouth (and I am drooling just typing about it). My wife and I try gnocchi at every Italian restaurant that offers it, but Villa Gallace wins the gold hands down.

Chef Marcello is an amazing chef and we have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. The wine menu is fantastic, the service is first class all the way, and Luigi is an impeccable host.

You would absolutely be doing yourself a disservice by not enjoying a meal at this restaurant while in the area. Everyone that I have talked to that has enjoyed a meal at Villa Gallace's all agree that it is one of the best, if not the best, italian meals that they have ever had... Even in Italy.

“Great experience!”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

We dined at Villa Gallace for the first time after passing it many, many times on our way to other restaurants in the area. We finally decided to give it a try and are we glad we did! We were warmly greeted and seated at a booth with a pretty view of the outdoor ding area and the water. We had a crisp white linen tablecloth and napkins, background music and excellent service from beginning to end; our waiter was Louis. We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The owner, Luigi, stopped by to make sure all was well and upon leaving, thanked us for coming. We had a problem with our car when we left and Luigi was quick to notice our plight. He went out of his way to help us and we will definitely be familiar faces at Villa Gallace from now on...highly recommend and looking forward to bringing our friends and family here!

“Great as always”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Authentic classic Italian on the beach - with a seaside flair for local fish. Great service - great atmosphere and never disappointed in the food. As close as a New York Italian restaurant as you can get.

“For that special night out....”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

You'll be greeted by the owner and made to feel welcome. The service is excellent and the food is great. Probably the best Italian restaurant in the area.
