You know a family-run Italian restaurant is good when it manages to establish itself in more than one location, which is exactly what Galo’s Kitchen has succeeded in doing. With two locations, this particular one being on Montpellier Street in the very heart of Harrogate, Galo’s chefs are vastly experienced and even more passionate about what they believe is the best cuisine in the world. As such, the Italian food here radiates quality and will have you smiling in a way that few other Italian restaurants in Harrogate can replicate. Just be warned – Galo’s Kitchen is very popular, so it would be wise to reserve your table in advance.
As we already mentioned, at Harrogate’s Galo’s Kitchen you will find extremely passionate chefs who have quite a few home recipes flying around, and this special touch certainly make the dishes even more delicious. But before we get to those, much like Harrogate itself, the Galo’s Kitchen dining space is chic and classic. It’s a small enough space but you can expect white tablecloths and napkins, an elaborately tiled floor and lots of light inside. On Montpellier Street, this is an ideal space to enjoy proper Italian cooking with your nearest and dearest. So welcoming is the space, in fact, that you may find yourself staying for much longer than originally planned.
Galo’s Kitchen is fit for any occasion owing to an impressive a la carte menu, a set menu, a children’s menu and a wealth of wines and desserts. Begin with something from the modest selection of gourmet starters – it’s quality over quantity here – then consider pasta or risotto for mains, perhaps. The tagliatelle with fresh lamb ragu, pecorino cheese and a garlic crumb is our pick of the bunch, but all are fantastic. Of course, Galo’s Kitchen also offer homemade pizzas and main dishes of fish or meat so you’d be wise to try the 35-day aged fillet steak with a red wine sauce and your choice of sides. Oh, and one final thing, pizzas and penne pasta or spaghetti dishes can all be requested gluten-free. Bellisimo!
Wonderful service, atmosphere and totally delicious food. We thought it is a very special restaurant and deserves to do well. Our children had never been as they live away but we will definitely be back . Thank you so much.
My second visit to the Harrogate branch and just as good as the first. Excellent food and service in an elegant space. Can't fault it!
Great evening - as usual. Friendly staff, good menu and lovely atmosphere with Italian opera gently playing in the back ground.. Food cooked and tasted superb. Could not be faulted.
