This is THE place to shop for Italian meat and cheese in Cleveland, OH. The pizza dough is wonderful and easy to work with! Great wine selection too!

“Authentic Cleveland-Italian... Buy A Loaf of Bread Fresh Out of The Oven!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

First things first; this is a inner city market, not a restaurant. They do have outdoor seating if you purchase from their to-go lunch counter. You do not go to Gallicci's for the ambiance, yet it has a gritty ambiance all it's own that makes it a fun destination.
What's good: Excellent baked goods, bread you just tear off the loaf while it's piping hot on the way home and see if there is anything left by the time you arrive. Better get two. Very fine deli, wonderful wine department, great olive selection plus heat and eat prepared foods that make you wonder why go to the bother of making your own pizza dough or sauce or any other Italian pasta specialty. I grew up with a lot of Italians and Gallucci's was a part of their culture.
The lunch counter can only be judged mid to late morning when everything is out and nice and hot. They make what they make and anything that doesn't sell immediately sits under the lights until the lunch counter shuts down. Italian food just doesn't age gracefully.
My advise- Get some bread, some sliced mortadella, some sliced smoked provolone, some wine and feast in the car. And that is about as fun & romantic an ambiance as you can get.

“Authentic Italian Foods at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

They offer a wide variety of Italian meats, wines and groceries. I've been shopping at Galluci's for the past fity years, even before when they were where Progreeive field now stands. In the old days, I drove my old mother there every Saturday and did much of the family shopping then before proceeding to the Farmers Market.

“Molto Bene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2010

My gramma would take us there growing up... I lived in Italy and have since moved back home and I love this place. The smell and food reminds me of being back in Italy and I love the memories with my family growing up. The best part is the deli, I like that they remember our name when we come in... it is like walking into home.
