Staff were welcoming, personable and efficient. Food and wine were delicious and well priced. We ate early in the evening prior to a gig and it was perfect!

I am Italian so I know what's what. Bruschetta should be without pesto. Lasagna should not be drowned on tomato sauce. I didn't try the pizza, could be the right choice!

This is a lovely restaurant. I have been here many times with different groups of friends and we have never been disappointed. I have eaten off the main menu and the fish menu, at lunch and at dinner and the food has always been good. Plenty of food, always beautifully presented and tasting so good!

Overall, a nice meal, although it was very quiet when we arrived just before 7pm. The menu was tantalising and the starters were particularly good.

Lovely place and the food is just amazing. Had the steak and it was perfection. Can't fault the food.

Only gripe is some of the waiters can't speak proper English and often requests where lost in translation. But, very polite and professional.

It's somewhere to go if you don't mind spending a bit more as you definitely get extra quality for what you pay.

Would come again!

Table of 5. Booked here before going on to a concert. Due to horrendous traffic some of our party were late. Despite being rushed off their feet, staff were great, understanding and very relaxed. Made us welcome. Even did fresh pizza when we preordered for someone, who again because of traffic was extremely late. When it came food delivered quickly. They could accommodate fact we were a "pre- theatre booking". Food delicious and freshly prepared. Table clothes and linen napkins. Great alternative to places on main walkway for New Street and yet only just around the corner on a side street. A few minutes walk from Town Hall. It was a relief to discover this place with all the Christmas madness going on outside, particularly as food and "vibe" was so good. We will definaty be back! Note- step access.

We had a two course meal and a bottle of wine. Chef was happy to swap a couple of ingredients and we had friendly and efficient service at a reasonable price. The space is inviting and the decor is great. I visited in the evening with a good friend, but my husband has visited during the day for both a business lunch and with his mother. I would definitely return.

Every time we visit Birmingham for a show/theatre we book La Galleria. Perfect for Town Hall and Symphony Hall venues. Very authentic Italian food with quick service and good atmosphere. No complaints.

Food was really good but service was shocking. As we were going to see a show we explained that we has a limited time of 1.5 hours. The drinks and mains were served OK but it took ages for them to bring the dessert menu after requesting it and then we called a waitress over for the bill as we had no time to order anything else. The restaurant wasn't even busy and the waitress and 2 waiters seemed to spend more time chatting that actually attending to the diners.

Excellent meal, so nice to find a separate fish menu with such a good choice. The waitress was helpful, pleasant and delightful. We would certainly recommend this restaurant and will come again. My partner has not stopped raving about the scallops!!

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.

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.

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.
