Bloody Fantastic !!! Dined there last night for the first time. Myself, the wife and another couple. Butternut squash soup was excellent (and vegan). I had the Carbonara Pasta. Instead of scrambled egg mixed in as it is traditionally,

I was not impressed with the food, or the service here. The servers forget who they are serving, and they spend more time flirting with co-workers than they do with your meal. \r
If you like salmon...dont come here, they ruin it.

My first time, my family took me their for Mother's day 2009, our reservation was pushed back half hour. the ambiance is wonderful, the food was good when we finally were served, the service leaves so much to be desired. I was very disappointed from the rave reviews I had received. Don't know if I go back....very much overpriced.

The prices are very expensive, so if you're wanting to go out on a fancy date then this is the place for you. Food was delicious and the service was great when I went. Atmosphere is intimate. Great for dates.

The meals are very expensive and the atmosphere is pretty elegant to match it's inflated prices. However, the food isn't as exceptional as all the hype would leave you to believe.
The food is really nothing more than adequate. If the milieu is important enough to you to spend the extra cash, then the place is fine. But if you want food that is just as good without the classy, and a bit stuffy, attitude, just go to the Olive Garden.

Took an out of town client to the restaurant. Lots of people recommended it. The food was okay but pricey considering the quality. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. It would probably be a good place to have a drink as the restaurant is well decorated and classy. However, skip eating there.

The restaurant is gorgeous but does not live up to all that you hear about it. The food was average, you can find a version of it elsewhere. My order came drenched in red wine. The taste was quite overpowering. Aside from all of that, the food is not as overpriced as some say. It honestly depends on what you order. I went with someone and our tab came up to $70. We ordered an appetizer, each had an entre, and two desserts, not to mention drinks. So, yeah. Don't be afraid to dine here. It was a wonderful experience. Enjoyed the food for the most part. Waiter was nice, did take quite a long while to get our order and our food. Must be patient.

Pros: Ambience, Surrounding, Wine

Cons: Slow service

This place can be EXPENSIVE! Twice that I can recall with large groups we spent over $500 on dinner and drinks! But, the atmosphere, food, service and entertainment is some of the highest quality you will find in Modesto. Owned by the famed Gallo family of Modesto, you can always be sure the wine is top quality and the chef, who is also renowned, will ensure the best dinner for the price. Although dinner is pricey, lunch at Galletto offers a much cheaper version of their dinner menu which has even included Kobe beef hamburgers!! YUMMO! I have eaten lunch for around $10 bucks there and, you still get the amazing service you would expect during a high class dinner.

Pros: Although expensive, well worth it! It's fun to get dressed up and go there, it's a classy place but it's not mandatory.

Cons: Can be expensive, if you don't have at least $20 or $30 to spend on yourself alone, don't bother.

Hmmmmmmmm where do I begin??? The inside is nice but no privacy at tables. I made reservations SEVERAL days in advance for my husbands birthday, arrived and STILL had to wait OVER 30mins to be seated on a Thursday night. "Fritto" Appetizer was not ALL that. Had to ask for bread twice, the waitress was S-L-O-W and non existent! A long wait for the dinner and salad. Not to mention we were seated near the door, each time someone entered or exited we froze! During dinner the lights (which are dimmed) got dimmer and flickered a few times.?? Dinners are pricey for the small portion sizes. I was discusted. We will not return.

It's a 'grandiose' restaurant and the outside patio is actually very nice but the biggest problem here is the service!
I have tried it 4 times in three years and have been disappointed every time. Everything from 'lost reservation' to rude and/or confused hostess to waiters who don't know their food. I had to send soup back that was not hot... Once you get your food it's very good but minuscule portions definitely are not worth the hefty prices. The word 'pretentious' comes to mind every time I'm there...

It could be a really good restaurant, very centrally located downtown, but they need to get their personel problem solved and offer at least medium sized portions.

Our first visit to Galletto was fabulous! The food was delicious and creative, the ambiance - lovely, the service - superior.

We'd go back in a heart-beat!

Two hours to complete sunday brunch. Lost order. Served same course twice. Soup warm, fruit warm, omlet greasy, sausage sandwich tastless and greasy.

Manager tried to make amends even though we did not complain. Obviously knew there was a problem. No way to correct the problems after the fact. Free drink offer does not help after a bad meal.

reservation was at 12:30 0n 10/13/02
