The chefs at LaGalleria prepared  four take out entrees and a salad for our at home dinner party. Three of our 10 guests had special dietary requests including vegetarian and  gluten free. The guests raved about the flavorful choices. I tried them all and particularly enjoyed the gluten free Pollo Stella with polenta, zucchini, chicken with a white wine sauce. If you have guests to entertain the hot freshly made entrees at La Galleria are a sure bet.

My boyfriend took me here.
First off I am a vegetarian. I expected to find nothing on the menu. Not only was the server very accommodating but she suggested things that wee not on the menu. While my BF got the steak, which he said was amazing, ill  take his word for it.... I actually got a really tasty Veg dish. Our  server was great and our experience was tasty and peaceful. We will  absolutely dine here again. Thank you so much to the owner- who stopped  by our table to refill our water- but to the server who made us feel  like we were the only ones in the restaurant, when we clearly were not.

We had dined here a few years ago and it was kinda meh. I was looking at reviews and saw that it was  rated pretty good so decided to give it another try. I am so glad we  did! I can't say the ambiance is great but the food was! I loved the  putanesca! Spicy, salty goodness! My husband had beef tenderloin with  gnocchi and it was done perfectly! Our waitress was awesome! We went  into the bar area for dessert and after dinner drinks and that little  area has all the ambiance.Definitely we will go again!

We dined there on 5/22/12.  Very  tasty food and nice presentation. Comparably good amount of food for the price. Loved being served by the owner's mother--she's a sweetie!
