Last night, Melissa and I dined at Galo’s Italian Grill, over on Garwood Drive (East side of town). We’ve eaten there several times before; The food is usually terrific and it has a neat atmosphere.
Most of their offerings are meat-oriented, but they do have a few items that are meatless (and tasty!), I’ll list them all at the bottom, for reference.
We had the Mozzarella Fritti (fried cheese) for our appetizer (antipasta!) and I chose the Gnocchi in Alfredo, while Melissa chose the Eggplant Parmesan with a side of “Galo’s Chopped Salad”.
From the perspective of an herbivore, the experience was pleasant. There were a good variety of menu items to choose from so we didn’t feel limited to just ordering side items. While we didn’t need to ask for any substitutions, I felt comfortable enough with the experience that if I had a reasonable request for something to be left off or substituted, they would probably accommodate me easily.
I would recommend this restaurant.
Although we didn’t order it this time, one item that is a must-try is their “Pasta Mediterranean.” From the menu:
Penne pasta tossed with feta cheese, asparagus, sun dried tomatoes, pine nuts, and olive oil.
It is delicious. The portion looks small when you get it, but it’s very satisfying.
