We went to bar gallo for dinner and we were not disppointed. The bruschetta we had to start was amazing and the lasagne just topped it off. Great for a couple of drinks too. Fast Service.

The owners of Bar Gallo are so welcoming and kind! Everyone gathers there for coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. Lunch and dinner are also good. Try the soups... they're amazing!

The original Panicale bar, frequented by a colourful mix of agricultural workers, a few local artists and most US, British and German expats who come to meet their friends and talk to the locals and wouldn’t drink anywhere else. Bar Gallo, run by Aldo and Daniela Gallo, is modern and clean inside, with a large room at the back with a view of Lake Trasimeno for when the weather turns inclement. In summer people are outside at the tables in the picturesque old square. Here you can eat simple meals for when the formal Italian dining experience is too much: focaccia with ham or cheese, salads, single pasta dishes, bruschette, panini. Or you can have a drink or an ice cream and just talk. The staff are welcoming and mostly speak English.
