We went for Valentines Day and the meal was to die for! It was extremely busy, and despite that the staff was attentive and made us feel very special. The Chef accomadated our special request and even came to see us making us feel very welcomed. I have never felt disappointed at any time I have gone there and I try to go regularly when I am on the island.

My husband and I have eaten at Gallo Nero a few times on our visit to Langkawi. We keep returning as the food is delicious, and the service is excellent. With each visit, we are pleased with the gourmet dishes and excellent consistency of the food. We recommend you try the homemade bread which arrives at your table fresh out of the oven in its own small loaf. The seared Hokkaido scallops with sauteed spinach, roasted capsicum, and black olive dressing is a feast for the eyes and taste buds. Our favorite dish is the fresh orange sweet potato gnocchi with creamy blue cheese sauce, rocket and nuts pasta dish. The blue cheese gives the pasta dish an additional layer of flavor. The roasted quails with sauteed spinach, roasted potatoes and cranberry sauce were especially amazing with the sauce. Another favorite was the 12 hours slow cooked duck leg, roasted pumpkin and potatoes, grain mustard and orange reduction dish. If you like panna cotta with mixed berries, it is a wonderful dessert to end the meal. We look forward to returning again.

We came here for my husbands birthday along with three of our friends. The whole evening was just exceptional, the food was absolutely delicious, we chose for starters seared Hokkaido Scallops, Half mozzarella Buratta and Pollo Tonnato followed by Black Angus rib-eye Steak, spaghetti with garlic olive oil chilli and salmon, spaghetti and salmon in a creamy lemon sauce and Potato Gnocchi “alla sorrentina” followed by a chocolate flan which had a candle on it for the birthday boy. From start to finish the whole evening was amazing along with great service from the very friendly staff who kept our drinks topped up. I would highly recommend you visit this place you will not be disappointed, a must for a special occasion or a romantic meal. I will be returning when I come back to Langkawi very soon.

Although it was not that busy we had to wait to be greeted by someone. The waiter who was very pleasant gave us menu's several of them he then disapeared and only came back when I managed to catch his eye. Wine was excellent food was good although a smallish portion for the cost in my view.

Been to Langkawi many times and this was a place on our list. Finally got there and oh so disappointing. Atmosphere nice and service friendly but firstly they couldn’t get the aircon adjusted. Cold air was directly on us and we asked if we could be moved. They looked baffled and tried making adjustments with no luck. There was a massive space empty next to us and out of the range of the aircon but they didn’t suggest moving the table there. Took a bit of time but finally got a better table. Next the starters arrived. Croquets and Carpaccio were very nice. Then we ordered the prawn ravioli and salmon linguini. The two orders of ravioli came out at the same time. This took almost 40 mins which I thought was excessive. My wife and daughter had almost finished before they came to me and told me that my food will arrive shortly (20 mins later). At that point I highlighted that my family had almost finished so they accelerated the process. A minute later the food comes out and it’s bland and almost undercooked. All the main sounded fantastic but were very disappointing. No real apology until the ‘see you again’ at the end. Disappointing food experience. Felt very let down for a restaurant so highly rated. Expectations were high given their popularity but don’t understand the big deal.

Hi Mansoor 99, My sincere apology for your less then satisfactory experience at Gallo Nero, shouldn’t be an excuse but we had a series of very unfortunate events and I suddenly found myself cooking almost on my own on some very busy nights, while I did try my best to stay ahead of the game, unfortunately I wasn’t good enough. I ll find out with my crew re: air condition situation and make sure we will fix this issue. I hope when you ll be back to Langkawi you ll give us another chance to show you the true Gallo Nero experience and in my opinion the well deserved high ranking position on TripAdvisor . Again, please accept my sincere apologies. Lorenzo Chef/Owner

On a cold and wet evening we came for dinner without checking any reviews or such. Thankfully we had such a wonderful meal. The ciabatta was crusty on the outside and pillow soft inside. The pastas were delicious and the prawns I had were beyond delicious. We were so full but could not resist the desserts and the chocolate flan was to die for..plus they offered us grappa which left me feeling all warm and fuzzy on the inside! I wish I lived in langkawi so I could eat here all the time

I can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough. We visited after a recommendation and had such great food and service, we returned a second time. We enjoyed our cocktails (champagne sangria and the Hugo spritzer were wonderful!), the service the best we had in Langkawi and the chef came to our table to discuss our various and complex dietary needs! A special vegan feast was arranged when needed plus huge steaks for the carnivores and some of the best food we’ve ever had. Nothing was too much trouble. Plus the port was very nice ;)

This is the place. It’s a wonderful location with fun decor and great food. And a huge wine list. My wife and I visited this restaurant recently while on a short trip to Langkawi. She is a vegetarian and had some questions for the waitress about options. Within 1-3 minutes the chef visited our table to talk about what she could do (even proposing an option not on the menu). We had time to chat with him and discovered that he trained in Northern Italy. He makes the pasta on site and his connection to Italy is clear. I have included a picture of Chef Lorenzo chatting with us. We started with an appetizer (Burrata - see pic). We also had the three cheese plate (pic). For the main my wife had the sweet potato gnocchi (pic) and I had the steak (pic). Both of us agreed that the cheese plates were outstanding. The three cheese plate came with both white and black truffle. So good!. The gnocchi came out looking like salmon because it was made from sweet potato. It was very tasty but it had a look that was not appealing to her. I enjoyed my steak but would have preferred a pasta dish. I think it would have been a little more authentic than the steak. Next time! We will definitely come back next time we visit. Great staff, atmosphere and food!

I have been in Langkawi on and off for four years now. There is a lot of good food on the island but Gallo Nero falls into a class of its own. Outside of five star hotels it is one of the few places where you can experience fine dining. And not pay five star prices. We were a Lange lunch party of 11 but all drinks were served promptly. All of the food arrived at the same time; a truly professional set up. We had a wide variety of dishes which were all excellent and beautifully presented. After pudding the owner and chef (Lorenzo) came out to talk to us - a nice touch. For sure I will be back and really sorry that I did not discover the place sooner.

Without doubt Gallo Nero is a good Italian restaurant, if you are tired of Asian food it is most probably the best alternative in the island, being myself Italian, I can be trusted. Still there is room for improvements, whilst appetisers and desserts were really good, my spaghetti didn't match my expectations, taste was not as good as I expected, missing some important aromas. Said that, service is good,even if a bit slow and, considering the nature of the restaurant, price is overall fair. The ambiente is quite nice but slightly noisy for my personal taste, easy to park just outside the restaurant, which is an additional plus.

Wonderful experience with my family. I found this restaurant thanks to good reviews which I can only confirm. The environment is really Italian, I was struck by the kindness of Lorenzo, the owner and all the staff as well as the excellent dishes! My son chose the penne al pomodoro which came with fresh tomato and smelled very good. My husband and I ordered bruschette with fresh tomatoes and anchovies to share and gnocchi with gorgonzola and a good merlot. Everything was perfect! We concluded the dinner with a tiramisu with amaretti crumble and two glasses of excellent Grappa, this kindly offered. I was impressed that this is not a tourist restaurant, even though it is on a tourist island. You can feel how the owner does his best to keep real Italian cuisine and take care of his guests. If you are looking for a relaxing dinner and real delicious Italian dishes, choose Gallo Restaurant! Well done!

So glad we discovered Gallo Nero restaurant in Langkawi! It quickly became our favorite place to celebrate. Excellent food - most of it is typical Italian, although we prefer the steak or chicken dishes over pasta. They have good wines and outstanding desserts, even good coffee. It's not cheap but we really enjoyed the weekend special of a three course lunch menu, although that was recently discontinued. We had a steak dinner at lunch time that was excellent and cheaper than on the dinner menu. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommened.

Sort this one out after fb reviews and they are spot on. The food is delicious and the service superb. Great wine list and awesome desserts. Chef came out for a chat which was a nice touch. This is not a cheap eat compared to Malaysian values however it is well worth the extra for great food and service. Highly recommended.
