Food was great! Very nice place for date night. Would definitely come again.
I’d had an upsetting day so I decided I wanted to treat myself to a very nice dinner and relaxation time. I started with the amazing bruschetta special (mascarpone, lemon and capers, with smoked salmon). They were wonderful. Then my favorite Galletto salad (with the anchovies). The the lasagna. I had the lasagna for the first time the last time I came to Galletto. It was the perfect comfort food for the evening. Rich, meaty, and satisfying. Wonderful evening. I also was lucky enough to have the wait person who is always so happy to see me. Just what I needed.
Galletto's is a restaurant for all seasons. They have good food and a great ambiance. They are perfect for pre and post theater dining.
Wine list expensive.
Gallo hearty burgundy should be replaced with some Gallo Sonoma choices. Poor choice of Craft Beer. Dust Bowl IPA was the only choice Offered . Also Menu needs additional description in English. Listing everything with Italian names probably adds to the ambiance but does little to impress.. South wall seating not very private. Dividers or booth arrangement would be much better for a so called special place to go. Prices are a little high and a more personal dining experience would be more sophisticated. The Galleto is upscale for Modesto, but it is still Modesto, No need to dress up here. Restaurant is nice but not really special.
Very slow service, cold restraunt , over cooked entree
I finally had the house lasagna! I’ve been looking at it on the menu for some time, but specials have pulled me away. But this time, it was what sounded right. It was absolutely amazing. Perfect homemade pasta. An amazing meat sauce that has filet and ribeye ground and cooked in it. I loved the atmosphere as always and the service is great and very friendly. It may be odd to comment on, but I used the restroom for the first time. I was so impressed there was an elevator to get to the second floor where they are located. And the restrooms lived up to the rest of the place. Great experience!
SERVICE WAS FAIR.... OUR WAITRESS WAS NICE BUT SEEMED ANNOYED WITH ME (I WAS LATE AND PICKY :(
MY SISTER AND MOTHER ORDERED THE SAME ENTREE AND BOTH HAD OLD BREAD WITH VISIBLE MOLD ON IT. THE SANDWICH DID HAVE BASIL TYPE SAUCE, BUT I KNOW MOLD WHEN I SEE IT AND IT WAS DEFINITELY MOLDY BREAD. THEY WERE VERY NICE AND SWITCHED OUT THE ENTREE BUT DID NOT BELIEVE WHAT WE SAW ON THE BREAD TO BE MOLD.... IT WAS MOLD!! THEY SHOULD HAVE REMOVED THE 2 MOLDY ITEMS FROM OUR CHECK, BUT THEY DID NOT!! OUR ORDER AMOUNTED TO $209.00 FOR 4 PEOPLE AND THAT DOES NOT INCLUDE TIP.
I WILL NOT BE RETURNING! BUT THEY COULD HAVE HAD OUR ENTIRE PARTY AS RETURN CUSTOMERS IF THEY WOULD HAVE REMOVED THE ITEMS FROM OUR CHECK. CREDITING OUR CHECK FOR THE 2 MOLDY ITEMS WOULD HAVE POSITIVE EFFFECTS. WE WOULD HAVE RETURNED IN THE FUTURE FOR LUNCHES, DINNER AND SPECIAL OCCASIONS... I WOULD HAVE TOLD FRIENDS, NEIGHBORS AND FAMILY MEMBERS OF OUR EXPERIENCE AND HOW AWESOME THEY WERE TO HAVE REMOVED THE ITEMS FROM OUR CHECK. THAT DID NOT HAPPEN AND WE WILL NOT RETURN.
We celebrated my husband 50 th bday , the food was great, service was exelent , my only concern was ..... missing white table cloth.... it was disappointing and noticeable :(
Food was alright- maybe a little bland for our tastes- overall experience was good.
I came here for my birthday and absolutely enjoyed the experience! The food and service was amazing!
Always fabulous and service attentive! Our favorite restaurant in Modesto!
Our meal started off badly when, even with a reservation, they seated us next to the kitchen where my husband kept getting bumped as staff walked in and out. We could have and should have asked for another table, but we didn’t. We had tickets to a show downtown and this was one of the few places open on a Sunday evening. After this experience I am reminded why we haven’t been here in years. The menu was very odd for an Italian restaurant. Bread was adequate. Wine list overpriced. We both ordered the minestrone soup to start. A different staff member brought out two bowls of soup, but our waiter directed her to the table next to us. A few moments later the patrons at that table realized that they had the wrong soup. They had ordered the clam chowder. How they didn’t realize the difference between minestrone and clam chowder is beyond me, but that was the case. I ordered the chicken piccata and it was okay. However, the broccolini that came on the side was over cooked and the pasta was bland and flavorless. My husband ordered risotto. He said it was just okay. We ordered off of the bottom of the wine list and the tab was still $170. Way over priced for the quality of the food and service. Won’t return. We will go to our other favorite restaurants.
The ambience was nice. The service was great! Waiter always made sure we were ok. The rest of staff were very helpful & polite as well. I’d go back for sure.
As always, my wife and enjoyed a great evening. Service was impeccable.
Typically, you can't go wrong with Galletto's. My swordfish just happened to be oversalted so I wasn't as happy with my meal. However, when I complained, the server took the dish and returned promptly with a new less salty dish. My husband loves the martini's and everything else is perfect there.
Very dissatisfied with the flavors and presentations. Two appetizers, both very poorly executed. Four entrees; filet nice cut and cooked to order however sides totally flavorless! Roasted beet salad, zero flavor overall! Beets very tiny but no flavor, and the portion overall huge and no acid to help balance the dandelion greens. Risotto of the day so spiced with heat it was uncomfortable to eat! Margarita pizza overall the best item ordered. Salmon special was cooked to order but again the sides had zero flavor or season!! Beur Blanc had no season and was watery! Overall a terrible Birthday dinner! Dessert options were so poor we didn’t bother. Once again the lack of attention to portion, seasoning, and preparation has made it impossible to recommend. Prices are usual for the area.
A wonderful place for a delicious New Year's Eve dinner!
My wife and I went to Galletto for a New Year's Eve dinner arriving around 7:15 (we had a reservation for 7:30). We were seated immediately in the outer garden part of the restaurant. This section is much quieter for conversation, and there were plenty of heaters so we were very comfortable. The menu was fixed with prime rib, mashed potatoes, and grilled Brussel sprouts, with salad or soap as a starter, and tiramisu for dessert. The prime rib was outstanding (a very generous portion) as was the rest of the meal. The service was very prompt and gracious despite the large crowd. Overall a great experience!
New Year’s fixed price three course dinner was wonderful. Prime rib was perfect. The puréed potatoes and celery root were lovely. Haven’t had celery root in some time and I really enjoyed it. Tiramisu was a surprise. I usually don’t like tiramisu. Lady fingers can be dry and it’s easily over alcoholed. This was wonderful. Silky smooth and creamy, I definitely ate the whole thing. Service was great as usual. Lovely New Year’s eve for me!
Food was excellent and staff did a great job, but it took forever to get our food, we ordered at 6:30 and didn’t get our food until 7:45. Oh, food is pricey but very good. I would go back, hopefully they won’t make me wait as long.
