I visited Galleria with two friends on a lovely Saturday evening and was surprised to discover it fairly empty. Unfortunately, the tables on a balcony overlooking the river only accommodate two people, so we had to sit inside. The decor was fine, but a lack of soft surfaces / generally poor acoustics made it very noisy, despite there only being three other occupied tables.
Irritatingly, bread was not complementary. Even though it only cost £2 for a reasonable amount, it was just a very standard sliced demi-baguette and I really resent having to pay for something which I would expect to be free in a place like the Galleria.
To start I had tomato, red pepper and fennel soup (£3.95) which was perfectly nice (although it would be fairly difficult to get it wrong) whilst the other people at my table had salmon mouse (£4.95) which was, apparently, good, although the portion size was rather small in my opinion.
I had the crab linguine (£8.95) for my main, whilst my friends had the vegetarian tagliatelle (£8.95) and roast leg of lamb (£14.95). At first, the server brought the wrong tagliatelle, but this was quickly rectified. I was impressed by the absence of shell from my linguine, although this may well be because the crab meat was pre-prepared. Unfortunately, there was too much garlic in the pasta sauce, at least for my taste, which overpowered the other flavours. Overall, the main courses were decent, but not really anything to write home about.
All in all, the Galleria is a very nice place to eat on a sunny spring or summer evening / afternoon, but don't expect the food to be anything particularly special.
