Galletto Ristorante Ratings and Reviews

My wife and I loved the meat and cheese tray. The New York Strip Steak was good. The "full" size of pasta was pretty small. Tasty but small. Our server was the least good part. She chewed gum and generally seemed less .... refined.

After requesting possible vegan entrees when making reservation, nothing was readily available. Other food was attractively served, but mediocre. Service was extremely slow, and other guests arriving after us were served before us. Total experience was a disappointment for guests coming from San Francisco for the evening.

The service was very slow, the server took a long time to take drink orders and subsequently our meal order. When did come for drink orders she never asked anyone at the table if they wanted anything other than the wine we brought even though three people didn't drink wine. We sat down at 6:15 and didn't get our meal until 7:40 even though the waitress knew we were going to a local event. She asked us when we sat down so we felt comfortable that our almost two hours we had at the restaurant would be enough. Instead we had to engulf our food. She then had the nerve to ask if we wanted dessert or anything else when she knew we were late and seemed annoyed when we said that we needed our bill. Besides the service everyone liked the flavor except one pasta with a pesto type sauce which was more like a glib of cheese and way too much garlic. I have been there a few times and enjoyed it but not sure if I will go back.

The hostess made fun of the spelling of my not-so-common name when I made my reservation. This was an odd way to encourage a customer to come to a restaurant. In addition to this, the food was exceptionally disappointing. The fritto misto was good, but the beet salad seemed like the beets, cheese, and walnuts were being rationed. The beet salad was comprised of mostly very tough kale greens with two extremely small beets sliced and just a four or five tiny bits of cheese. The last thing that was very disappointing was the risotto that had an odd tang to it, lacked flavor, and seemed overly crunchy. I expected a much better tasting meal for the price. It seemed like the key ingredients were being rationed. I will not be returning to Galletto Ristorante in the future. There are much better places for Italian food in this town.

We had an early dinner before catching a movie on a Tuesday evening. When we arrived, there was one other customer--a single dining by himself. It seemed to me that the service could have been more prompt given we were the only ones in the place who were placing an order but that aside, the wait staff was friendly and provided decent service. The food was good; my husband had the trout special which he devoured before before I could snag a bite--he enjoy it very much. I went with the pesto parpadelle and it was excellent. We split a scoop of their oatmeal raisin gelato for dessert and it really did taste like an oatmeal cookie!

Server was attentive without being intrusive. Helpful with his menu suggestions. Menu options were well balanced. The filet was one of the best I have ever had. A very enjoyable dining experience. We will be back.
very nice restaurant
the food was all very good - but the portions fairly small and the prices were more san francisco prices than what i would have expected for the Valley. Very nice beet salad, excellent chicken wing appetizer, and very rich and decadent carbonara.
From the easy reservation setup online, to when I paid for my check. The atmosphere and ambiance was excellent. Mellow lights for a romantic getaway date. Which I choose for my fiance' birthday. To excellent service, we were seated right away. The booths are excellent for a date. Excellent wine selection by the way. Food was very tasty, with a white sauce base, which is an North Italian tradition. I prefer the tomato sauce base myself of South Italy. But was excellent and I really recommend this experience, that and the price was decent. Diffently five star quality. Great job

Generally a great experience! This particular night, we stopped in before a painting class later that evening. Our waiter forgot to put in our order of multiple appetizers to share, so only our salad came out before we had to leave.
Wonderful Dining Experience
It was my birthday and my husband took me out for a drive. We were on Hwy 99 when I googled restaurants in Modesto. Galletto Ristorante popped up and after reviewing the menu, we made reservations online. We had a wonderful and delicious lunch. Nicci was our server, who was very personal and attentive. We couldn't had asked for a better experience. We will definitely return to try other entrees.
Galletto's has been a long time favorite but, I was very disappointed with this visit. The service was great but, the food was not good. I had the beet salad which was extremely salty. For entree I had the risotto which was very bland and the meat in the dish was tough and tasteless. I would not reccomend going there to anyone and don't plan on returning.
