Gale's is great place to get a delicous Italian dinner! They take reservations on Open Table and have parking.

We were a party of six - we had a reservation and were seated very quickly after arriving. Our server came right over to take our drink orders and brought out some delicious bread to enjoy while we were looking over the menu.

There is something for everyone on the menu: soup, salad, pasta dishes, fish, chicken, pizza, etc.

I ordered the roasted chicken which came with 2 sides. I chose the sautees spinach and roasted potatoes. Everything was delicous! Everyone in our group enjoyed their meals.

Be sure to check out their dessert menu - there is a lot to choose from.

We celebrated my nephew's graduation and my sister's birthday here. Service was great. Food was good and prices were reasonable. Variety of choices. Able to accommodate a large group of 13. Plenty of parking. Would come back again.

Based on other reviews the restaurant was larger and not as noisy as I expected (both good things). We had snacked in the afternoon so we just shared the soft shell crab special appetizer and a pizzetta with mushrooms that was also on the daily specials. Both were tasty and fresh. Bread was also very good. We'll return for a real dinner next time we are in town. Service was friendly and efficient.

Yes, it can get a little loud when the place is full, which it usually is at dinner. Nevertheless, to avoid that, go early but be sure to make a reservation, which is what we did. Our server (Brooke) took very good care of us and the food was delicious. We shared a soft shelled crab appetizer. It was really good! Then I ordered the meat lasagna, which I love. Combined with Gale's great Italian bread, it was perfect, not to mention very filling.

We tried to eat here but had a horrible experience with the staff. We were willing to wait for a table but no one would take our name down or give us any idea regarding the wait time. We eventually gave up and decided to eat at Le Grande Orange instead.
