Place was empty so that was a good thing - service good - wine excellent but Octopus not fresh and my lamb not so tender - overall a little disappointed as it was expensive for a lunch that didn’t excell

A wonderful Valentines menu that consisted of the biggest shrimp you can imagine in the shrimp cocktail that were perfectly cooked accompanied by the most flavorful and tender blue crab cakes, followed by a unique creamy, lobster risotto accented by orange citrus. The main course was a duo of NY Strip and Chilean Sea Bass. Both were perfectly seasoned and cooked, but the stars were the sauces that accompanied both. It was all finished off with a generous slice of chocolate raspberry cake that was rich and moist, but not overly sweet. We’ll be going back for more.

It's a lovely restaurant with very nice staff. Unfortunately, the food didn't seem quite what we thought it would be. Lovely presentation but taste was lacking especially in the appetizers. We will definitely try it again some day but maybe for lunch instead.

I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant very comfortable feel in this pandemic. The food was delicious and they were accommodating to one of the guests special needs. The Ossobucco was delicious very soft and flavorful. The branzino was made to our guests special diet and was moist and flavorful. The creme brûlée was light and delicious with a nice cappuccino. Would recommend this restaurant and will return soon.

I first went to Gallo Ristorante because of its close proximity to The Ridgefield Playhouse. I loved the establishment immediately, whether to enjoy a cocktail at the bar, or to sit down to a fine meal. I have been back numerous times, as it has certainly become a favorite restaurant of mine, if not THE favorite restaurant of mine. The atmosphere is terrific, and the staff is diligent in following all COVID safety guidelines, which is reassuring during these difficult times, allowing for a night out. The menu is delicious and the specials are constantly changing. I usually go there with an idea of what I will be ordering based upon my most recent fabulous meal, wanting to duplicate my last experience, but I always order a new tempting special and I have never been disappointed. Each meal is rated a 10!! The staff is nothing short of professional and attentive to every need. I must specifically name the wonderful waiter Louis, who contributes to makes our dining experience a wonderful event each and every time we visit Gallo Ristorante!!!

Food and service were great as always. Tables are spaced widely apart so we felt very comfortable eating inside or on the porches. They have done an extraordinary job under the covid rules to provide an excellent dining experience.

Very happy with our restaurant choice! Food was superb! Service was ok but a bit slow only because they were operating with fewer people. Kitchen was not slow at all; food delivered in a timely manner and cooked to perfection. Everyone really enjoyed their dishes.

Dining at Gallo is always a delight, even in these Covid-crazy pandemic days. For this early dinner with good friends, it was quite a challenge deciding between the mini tasty offerings on the menu. I can say that the squid ink seafood risotto I ordered was thoroughly delightful. And, to top it off, the mocha crunch ice cream pie for dessert was to die for. All in all, we had a great dining experience and one to treasure as the approaching cold weather begins to curtail our ability to enjoy outside dining. It’s going to be a long and challenging winter.

Having been a restaurant myself I can be extremely critical. This was probably my 6th time eating a meal at Gallo and it was wonderful as were all the other meals.

I can't wait to go back!

We sat outdoors which is enclosed by plastic tent.
We were very comfortable even though was down in the 50s with just sweaters as the tent keeps much of the cool air out.
Pasta seafood special was fantastic.
Actually everything was fantastic.
Server warm and professional.
We had a great evening.
