Lorenzo Z, Chef at Gallo Nero Italian Restaurant, responded to this reviewResponded 1 January 2021

Hi ch00sen1, our apologies if you felt ignored, we probably were too busy running with the restaurant operation. But to be honest it’s actually quite rude too to assume that we make distinction with our customers, any customer is equally important to us and our...More

Management has obviously upped their service quality. Food remains excellent and wine prices remain affordable. It was full house on Xmas night and despite the absence of the chef/owner, the service team was almost faultless! Well done!

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.More

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.More

Excellent steak which was cooked till perfection. Other food on the menu was also perfect. The deserts were not too sweet or too bland. Highly recommended

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.More

Hi Hizumi, we don’t serve pork and at the moment we don’t like to use any alchool in our cooking but we are fully licensed and we have a fantastic Italian wine cellar if you like wines..
