Galletto Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
Great dinning experience
We really enjoyed our self. We were fitted right away. Waiter's were very attentive , but not overbearing. The risotto was amazing, what a great cheese sauce. We will differently be back.

Foodie for fun
Always wanted to try this restaraunt so we ate here before Gallo show. Food was excellent but everything is alacart not fond of that. But excellent tasting food, and great happy hour prices. Alittle pricey for portions given. Great service

So lucky to have this spot close to home. Chef Michael infuses local products that are fun to see on the menu--and isn't afraid to try new ideas. Love, love it!
place is fantastic! the food is great and the service is very good. Two thumbs up!
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 parti ...
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.
Always a great meal
We always have a great meal, the service is always 'spot-on'. Galletto's is a 'never miss' for us when we are in town.
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.
Loved the duck and all the accompaniments. It was cooked perfect! Others had the Risotto and enjoyed it also.
The food was average at best. The tables were too close together. We were extremely disappointed at the end of the night.
I must say the food was outstanding. Well worth the price, service was excellent.
I have dined here on several occasions and have been disappointed but on this occasion I was. I was not informed before hand that it was a limited menu. Also the service was up to par. We had to ask for everything, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, etc.. Their were no condiments for the oysters and when ask, we were told that they were not available. All in all not the best experience for my fiancé and myself. Specially when I had bragged about your restaurants food and service. William
Everything was outstanding! We enjoyed our evening and they made accomadations to our dietary needs! Wine and dessert were fantastic!
Trying too hard
Great downtown location, good ambiance, very limited selective menu. Trying very hard to be a five star top Chef style upscale restaurant, but in Modesto if falls short. Very limited menu.
Great Italian spot in Modesto
Our waitress Bethany was one of the best. She was patient and answer all our questions and even fired up the food after we finished our appetizer and even share ingredients in our food. Just an amazing experience.
Made a special occasion even more special
Came to Galleto's for my birthday. Not only was the food amazing, the service was outstanding as well. They even made special menus that said happy birthday "my name" at the top, which was a personal touch that was quite a surprise for me! I absolutely love Galleto's and definitely recommend it.
A great place for fine dining right in the downtown area of Modesto. Simple menu. Executed well. Great service.
Perfect date night
Went there with my girlfriend. The service was great, wine was excellent and food was amazing. Loved our experience there.

Our waitress Christie (?) was excellent, very attentive.
Our server JB? From South Carolina was outstanding. Just the right mix of attentive, friendly informative, charm & without the arrogance that sometimes come with the high end restaurants. Thanks JB!
A constant favorite
We always go to Galletos when in Modesto. It never fails. The food is fresh, seasonal, contemporary. There is always a standard dish on the menu for traditionalist such as my husband. He loves their steak, Caesar salads and martinis. I had the fillet tip risotto with Gorgonzola. It was excellent but a little rich for me. We had oysters as an appetizer that were some of the best I've ever had.
Pleasant dining experience as conversation was a priority and we like the kitchen in the dining area witch adds atmosphere. The service was excellent and we enjoyed the interaction with the staff.

We've been here many times and usually love it. This time we were very disappointed with the service and the food. They should inform you when making a reservation of their intent to seat you outside on the patio( yes, they have space heaters, but it was 34 degrees out!) when we asked for a table inside, the hostess told us they would not be seating anyone else inside and we'd have to take a table outside or not get a table at all! We spoke directly with manager, and she eventually "found" us a table inside a half an hour past our reserved time. Our server was inconsistent and inattentive. Had to ask for wine list, bread, pepper for salad, Parmesan for pasta. Pasta was gummy, grilled peppers that were served with duck were blazingly spicy, coffee was full of grounds! We've been here several times a year since it opened and have had lovely dinners, tonight they were definitely off their game. We'll probably give them another chance to redeem themselves though!

Great Christmas Eve dinner. Fantastic food with outstanding service.
The best minestrone soup in town!
This restaurant has the best minestrone soup in town as well as an elegant dining room and an awesome patio that can be used year round! The entrees are of good quality, but preparation needs attention. I ordered a steak to be cooked medium and it was well done. (No pink inside) Also the sides that accompanied the entree were not as stated on the menu, and were extremely skimpy. The service was subpar, including the hostess who called to confirm our reservation...total air head. She didn't even know how to pronounce the name of the restaurant!! Certainly not a good first impression.
A frequent restaurant that is a very favorite. I was a chef in a restaurant in Sacramento that had an open kitchen as Galletto's has. Incredible ambiance, food and outstanding serve staff! Actually have reservations again for next weekend with my adult children for our Holiday dinner. Never disappointed!
Ambience was warm and inviting
A perfect dinner after a show downtown. Food was delicious!
Wonderful dining experience
We went here for our office Christmas dinner. Excellent steak, ministrone soup, cinnamon bread pudding, meat and cheese tray.
Food was good, service very slow
Had halibut very good but it took forever to get a bottle of wine and then our food. Seems they were pulling waiters to serve a party. They may want to hire more staff for the future
Good but but not great for the money
Went to the restaurant with a party of 5 and everything was good except for the food. Not one of us finished our entree because it was just way too salty...we each had a variety of food from soup to steak and seafood and all the entrees we way oversalted. A restaurant that purports to have and serve quality should purchase the best ingredients they can find and let them stand on their own without over salting/seasoning.
top notch, my favorite in Modesto
My parents were visiting and we had the opportunity to take them to dinner. I wanted to treat them to the best meal in town and Galletto Ristorante was at the top of my list. My dad commented how classy the place was when we walked in. We all enjoyed our meals. I had the duck confit and it was simply amazing.
