We went to Gallos Kitchen with another couple. This was our fourth or fifth visit and we are looking forward to our next meal there. I highly recommend the specials. I had the walleye special as did another of our party. The sauce and polenta...More

I am Italian and make my own pasta at home, so of course I NEVER order pasta in restaurants, as I think mine is the best. Gallo's, however, is the exception - their Cavatelli with Bolognese sauce is FANTASTIC! (I think it's called 'Pasta Russo'...More

I have to admit that I feel kinda silly reviewing Gallo's Kitchen. There are zillions of reviews telling how great this place is so I feel like I'm cheating. This was our first visit and we will definitely be coming back. The food was marvelous!...More

As frequent visitors to Louisiana, we're used to decent Cajun food. Some folks try to fake it, but it seems genuine here. The service is prompt, courteous and professional. The big problem with Gallo's menu is that you won't be able to decide what it...More

The outside of this place is deceiving, small restaurant in small strip center. But the food was outstanding. It was very crowded for a Wednesday evening. So glad we made reservations. They had a lot of Cajun choices.

Great when it's quiet, even better when it's packed. The music, the food, the drinks, the people- love it. I'm from here but picky when I come back home. This is home!

Without question, my favorite place to eat in Columbus. Tommy and his team are absolutely fantastic and I've never had a bad meal here. It is smallish so it can get crowded, and they are not open for lunch. I've always loved everything I've ever...More

Stopped by for a midweek dinner about 7pm. Just 2 of us. Space was about half full making for a pleasant atmosphere without being either barren or overly loud. Ordered a couple of the specials, one mixed seafood jambalaya and the fish with polenta, along...More
