“Delicious food saved us from going home hungry”

Restaurant details
Reviewed 17 January 2017

My boyfriend and I had sat down at another restaurant down the street, but ended up leaving with the food in a to-go box (we decided it'd be better to feed the strays than throw it away) because what they served us was absolutely inedible. We sat down outside at La Galeria and were greeted warmly by the restaurant's Italian owner, even though it was kind of late. He said he was out of gnocchi and red meat, which really wasn't a problem, because I'd rather know that the ingredients are fresh than over-ordered for the week. Anyway, our dinner was served quick, hot, and everything tasted fresh. My boyfriend loved the homemade cheesecake, and we even got to sip on some limoncello. We saw a couple other couples wandering around outside looking for dinner, and vocalized our contentment with our great find, which the owner also warmly welcomed into his restaurant.

We were looking for a nice Italian restaurant and althought they don't serve pizza, we decided to give it a shot. Please don't! The food is really bad! The Lasagane (heated in the microwave) doesn't have any sauce and the chicken....well I don't know what happened with the chicken, but it tasted weirdddd! Any other place would have been better... there is an Italian restaurant near the Pali, try that one. Can't be worse.

We went two evenings in a row and wanted to go back a third but it was closed (there had been a power cut). The gnocchi was great and chicken dishes, also the bolognese. Very refreshing juices too! Lovely Italian owner also who brought us a shot of baileys at the end of our meal, nice touch!

One of the best meals I've had in Nicaragua (and I've been here for almost 9 months). We were only on Ometepe island for about 48 hours and we ate here twice. Wonderful pasta and sauces are mouth watering. You can smell how good they are even before your food gets to the table. Highly recommended and very reasonably priced! Prices on menu include taxes.
