We came as a walk in and the restaurant was very busy. Raymond the manager went to great effort to fit us in. The food was amazing and Raymond and his team provided fantastic service with a very warm and friendly welcome. I had Lamb...and my wife had duck both dishes were excellent! We also shared the arrancini to start which was also superb. Would highly recommend it was so good we went back for dinner 2 nights later. You are assured a warm welcome good food and wines at a reasonable price if you like us enjoy wine with your food. Thank you Raymond and staff for two lovely evenings. Darren &PennyMore

Great food and great service . We were there on Valentine’s Day and the restaurant was full . Orders were taken soon after we were seated and the starters and bread arrived promptly. The main courses did take a bit long to appear after that...but why rush a pleasant evening with good company. Service staff were efficient and friendly . The main courses were excellent and worth the wait . If and when we come back to langkawi we will definitely include Gallo Nero on our list of restaurants to revisit ( in fact , one of the couples were there for a third time )More

Unfortunately we ordered the same main course my wife and me, tuna tataki… and they deliver with 15 min different time. So my wife had to eat cold! It’s a damage because the food was good.

We had a wonderful dinner again at Gallo Nero Italian Restaurant in Langkawi. We had been here a year ago and still the food is delicious and the staff is very attentive and nice! The restaurant is off the beaten track but it is worth...coming here for the great food! Hopefully we come back again before going home! Thanks for your great hospitality, delicious food and good service!More

I had a great time here with my friend. The food was the best Italian food in langkawi and I loved the tiramisu dessert. It was a slightly more pricy restaurant in langkawi but the food and service was amazing!

Probably the best Italian food on Langkawi. The place is simply decorated, but the quality of the food, the warm and sincere service and the limited but well curated and priced wine list will have you coming back.

Excellent service and food was fantastic. Chef Lorenzo took the time to come to our table, to see if everything is ok. No pizza though... But that's ok. You get to choose other great selection of food from the menu. The bruschetta is recommended for...a starter.More

The manager's ( staff/ owner: i think manager) behavior was too impolite. when i order 4 dishes, 1 out of 4 dishes has a smell problem, i just want to say a dish has a problem, so the manager doesn't need to know what happend,...he just want to talk and talk loudly like a fight. and he thought I complain to need a discount or any voucher of restaurant , but no. I will never go to a restaurant where the behavior of a manager is abnormal.More

Saw many 5star reviews and decided to come here for lunch as we have missed the dinner due to late arrival to Langkawi. Was putting high hopes as some claimed it’s the best Italian restaurant. Service was friendly by a Malay lady though. But in...terms of flavors wise, my girl and the Mr thinks, we had better Italian food back in Kuala Lumpur We had:- Risotto Rice Arancini @ RM 24.00 A glass of Merlot @ RM 15.00 from Weekend Lunch Special Grilled Portabello Mushroom with Watercress Salad @ RM 38.00 16 hours Brqised Lamb Shank @ RM 88.00 Orange Juice @ RM 14.00 Total lunch for 2 adults and 1 kid @ RM 196.90 nett Our personal opinion, my girl loves arrancini at her regular Italian restaurant, but she didn’t really enjoyed the arrancini here though as the flavors are lacking and the cheese as well. Salad was alright but not that memorable though. The lamb shank suppose to be 16 hours braised where by it will falls off its bones, but the lamb wasn’t braised properly whereby it’s still tough. This was a big disappointment for the Mr. The lamb jus was good though not overly salty but the lamb was some was disappointing. Price wasn’t cheap though just like the Autyentic Italian restaurant back home @ KL. Not 5 ⭐️ for our visit this lunch though , but Merlot was good deal @ RM 15.00More
