“Food still lovely, service now matches!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Went in on a weeknight without a reservation; we were a little bit late just after a busy weekend so there were a couple of items off the menu (a good sign that they stock things in freshly!) but still plenty to choose from.

Food here has been fantastic every time I was in, but in the past the service has let it down. Not the case today, the staff were warm and friendly and much more attentive than on previous visits. We weren't rushed, but were well looked after - a treat of an evening, we will definitely be back sooner rather than later!

“mixed views”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I walked into join friends, at the time their wine was being poured, I was offered wine, but declined asking for the beer and to see the drinks list. It took 5 mins to arrive and that was after a reminder. Having chosen the beer, I was told it was no longer served. Not a good start.

Throughout the service were extremes, either to attentive, or hard to get attention. It was midweek and not busy.
Once ordered the food arrived in good time, except the side which needed reminding about, pointless when it comes halfway through a meal and only garlic bread so not a challenge to the kitchen.
To be honest the food good and tasty, but for other restaurants in the town that might charge a little more, sometimes it’s worth considering the extra. Olivio has a restaurant in Newport and the general feeling is it is far better, and our visit echo's that.

“Enjoyed our evening”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

This was recommended to us as holidaymakers! The food was good, service was prompt and we had no complaints about the restaurant. There was a 40th Birthday gathering but that did not impinge on our evening.

“Good meal let down by a moussaka”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

We had a great meal Gallina was excellent and our daughters pizza was good however my moussaka was a bit of a disappointment. Apart from being a bit "sloppy" it was just served on its own and it was quite small for a main course. It could have done with a side salad or garlic bread. When I broached it with the wait he just shrugged and said you can order a side dish.

On the whole a good meal just let down by one dish and a surely waiter.
