Best spinach ravioli ever. You can order anything and not be disappointed. From pizza to anything else, yum.

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon for a quick bite while sight seeing. It wasnt busy, food came out quick since we only ordered slices. Pizza crust was a little over charred for our liking, pizza sauce was good. This place has excellent reviews, maybe we just hit them on a bad day? I would be willing to give them... More

I've been there many times and to me it is the best Italian restaurant in Springfield. I like their pizza but I love thier manicotti and stuffed shells. It comes with a large loaf of bread and I order it with a side of sauce to dip the bread in. The service can be a bit slow sometimes especially if... More

Decided to try something different and heard lots of good things about Gallina's. Had a regular crust sausage/pepperoni, garlic bread and wings. The wings were really great, some of the best I've had! The pizza was okay. If you like grease and thick dough, then definitely give it a try. It reminded me of Lucca Pizza. The garlic bread was...

Got lucky to find this place open on a Sunday. They had a private party and decided to stay open for awhile so we were able to get a pizza, the chicken parmesan, and cheesy ravioli dinner. All were excellent. The staff was really friendly and the food came out quick and hot. I would highly recommend this place.

I have lived in Springfield for over 20 years and never eaten here. I have always complained about there not being any good pizza in Springfield. We tried Joe Gallina's tonight because we had a coupon from a coupon book. For the life of me, I can't understand why anybody eats the rest of the garbage pizza they have in... More

Perfect! I moved to Springfield In 2008 and have eaten here at least twice a month since moving, it just keeps getting better!

We went with a youth soccer team for dinner. The service was painfully slow... stood in line almost 40 minutes just to place the order... There were only about 10 people in line. When the food was ready, it was mediocre, at best. The "salad" was just a bunch of iceberg lettuce and a couple of tomato wedges. The dressing... More

Absolutely wonderful. Not only was the pizza really good, the price was perfect, and they delivered to the hotel. There were plenty of toppings and the crust was perfect. I would definitely order from them again.

Stopped by here on a Saturday night. The place doesnt look that much but the food they served was totally unexpected. When we first arrived there were only two other tables but after we ordered thats when the place started filling up. I love how the specialty pizza tasted from the toppings to their dough.

Thank budgetmb
