“Very Good in All Respects”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

The food, service and atmosphere at Gallo’s are all very good but each fall just a bit short of excellent. While the atmosphere is nice, the main dining room is in an open, circular “bullpen” with a high ceiling which does not permit a cozy, intimate feeling that I like in many Italian restaurants. The service was prompt and adequate but could have been a bit more attentive. The food was very good with generous portions but not overly so. While there were no issues with the food, it just lacked the little extra that would have made it special. Cost is reasonable and very much in line with quality of the experience. Overall, Gallo’s provides a solid dining experience that I would recommend and one that I would not hesitate to experience again.

“Nice Local Alternative to Olive Garden”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

This is a very nice spot, locally owned, and the food is far superior to the OG. Try the fettucine alfredo -- actually all of the pastas and sauces are good -- as is the chicken piccatta. The portions are HUGE, so you'll want to plan ahead for that!

“Great atmosphere and food”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Galo's is a local Italian Restaurant that prepares wonderful meals from start to finish. The interior is different than a normal restaurant, it is grouped more like family meals and yet separate. The wait staff is attentive and knowledgeable.
