Tried this place on a recommendation from a work colleague. Seems like a non-descript restaurant from the outside and went their for lunch. Wow - the food is truly good Italian. That means- fresh. simple. consistent. Salads are not an afterthought here and I wish I had known about this restaurant sooner. Prices get a bit steeper for dinner - but you absolutely get what you pay for at this restaurant.

I have eaten at Gale's many many times and I have never had a bad experience. My friends and I always receive a warm welcome and the evenings gets better from there!
The service at Gale's is wonderful. The waiters are friendly and helpful and really do their best to help accommodate dietary needs and tastes.
The food is consistently delicious. Try the pasta al forno with sausage. The noodles are cooked perfectly and the sauce is so yummy. Salads are fresh. Fish dishes are also great. The bread is fresh and crusty.
Gale's offers a full menu of wine and alcoholic drinks. Desserts are also delicious.
Make a reservation! These are honored. This is a local favorite place to dine and can get very busy. Gales is a great find.

I have been going to Gales’s since it opened and it is my favorite restaurant in Pasadena. The food is always fresh and delicious no matter what I have chosen.

The daily specials are especially good and the offerings are varied, providing choices in fresh pasta, fish, meat, fowl or vegetarian. The wine selections are varied and the bartenders make a great martini. To top it off, you will never be disappointed with the staff, from the friendly reception to your waiter. What more can one ask?

Gale’s has an extensive menu — pasta, fish ,steak — and manages to cook everything with excellent taste and flavor . And unlike many restaurants , the dishes are served hot straight to your table . Try the salmon, the linguini, or the Tuscan steak . If you don’t want a dessert, sample the home - made biscotti with your coffee
