We have went there twice in the past month with a large group, we are always able to get right in, seated and served. Their pizza is phenomenal! Definitely one of the best pizza places in Springfield. Highly recommend a visit there!

Stayed in Springfield and wanted to find a restaurant but nothing took our fancy. Found this place and what a find. Busy busy as it was a Friday night. Without doubt, the best pizza we've ever had and we've had them in Rome, Milan, Venice and New York and Chicago. Owner is 100% efficient in service and definitely worth trying... More

The place may not look like much but food is very good. I would go here anytime. Pizza is unique. Sauce is a little different. Sausage on pizza is great. The dinners are very good. Stuffed shells are awesome. Meatball sandwich is great. I really like this place. Family owned and run for years. Use to go here all the... More

My husband and I were in town for a hockey tournament. We decided to stroll downtown Springfield. Since we had no idea where to eat, we asked a local. He recommended this place. The meatball sub is awesome! Friendly staff and lots of great choices on the menu. Nothing fancy, but we thought the atmosphere was very charming. Lots of... More

Someone used my name & wrote a horrible review about Gallina's & that's not cool the staff is very friendly, they really go out of the way for their customers. Joe the dad is a real sweetheart, Joe the son is my best friend & the mother Rosa is the kindest person you ever want to meet.

I ordered a personal pan pepperoni pizza, and it only cost me about $6. It was really good pizza, and was actually more than I could eat (and I'm a big guy). This was a great find on a Sunday night when there didn't seem to be many other options within walking distance of my hotel. If I'm in town,... More

Had lunch while visiting the area and it was just OK. Yes, the guys at the counter were a little, ahem, stern, but maybe it's a culture thing? I don't know. The pizza wasn't terrible. Hard to cut and floppy when you picked it up. We'd try something else the next time we are in the area.

We went there at my grandson's request after he checked the reviews. The sausage pizza was very greasy, but what really turned me off was the overall cleanliness standards of the staff. To make our salad, the counter guy pulled a bowl of lettuce out of the refrigerator and started slicing and throwing on the tomatoes. He didn't use gloves,... More

We were hungry and searching for a place to eat. It as around 3 pm and many businesses were closed from 1-4. Locals on the street recommended this place. It was fabulous! Staff could barely speak English, but that was not a problem. Generous portions with good prices!
