This is our second visit to La Galleria having found the restaurant to be easy walking distance to the Town Hall, where we were attending a concert on both occasions.
Very easy booking on website with immediate email confirmation.
Warm welcome on arrival, attentive service.
Delicious, authentic Italian cuisine not to be faulted. Desserts to die for.
Cannot wait for our next visit in October.
As always great food and service. Would absolutely recommend.
Recent experience has left me with no choice but to never return.
Ordered the Tagliolini Al Granchio (Crab Pasta) dish and when it arrived it had a over the top fish smell (imagine the fish market) and was thick and stodgy with too much pasta and too little good quality crab.
My fiance had ordered it but after a couple of bites could not finish the dish. She when asked by a server how her food was said it was not good. The server went to fetch the owner who listened to the complaints and didn't acknowledge them and said the dish was perfect his "Best Seller" and would not concede that his dish could be anything but perfection. He then took the plate back to the kitchen without another word.
This restaurant has a surface level look of a nice dining experience but with an owner like this who also doesn't allow customers to tip their waiters/waitresses but when I asked if we could tip them they said to not bother since it would just go straight to "management".
There are definitely better italian food options in Birmingham and this one is not worth your time.
Good safe choice for Italian. First floor position. Plenty of tables. Staff attentive. Food was tasty and well presented.Definitely would return.
Had very nice evening. The food was excellent. Head waiter was great. Will go back.
A really good Italian meal with very attentive service. My friend and I both ordered from the fish menu, my lemon sole with parmesan was suberb. A first class tiramisù as a sweet was a real treat.
