I have been anticipating going to Gallo for months. The online menu with all the Italian specialty dishes, especially the porchetta, the fantastic wine menu, seemed enticing for a foodie like myself. The disappoints however started when the waitress told us the cover, outside seating...More

I was a fan of the previous establishment (both food and drink) and was hoping for something to rival it rather than disappoint. The food was nothing special. Small portions, regretful fare. The best part was the cheese and charcuterie plate. Plating left much to...More

Wine lovers and foodies, rejoice! A lovely wine bar has opened in New Paltz. The wine and the food are Italian-focused, and it seems that the owner (a seasoned sommelier, we met him), and his chef are on the same page. The food is delicious,...More

New Paltz is a town with many bad restaurants, several mediocre restaurants, an over-rated, pretentious restaurant, and Il Gallo Giallo. I put it into a separate classification because it is very good, with no airs or snobbery. The service is smooth. The wines are excellent....More

I think this is an excellent wine bar and restaurant. I have eaten here several times and find it getting better and better. Chef Ryan is terrific! I recently had the chilled pea soup which just screams "spring"! Since ramps are in season and they...More

The place could easily be called ‘Passion’ since owner Darrin Siegfried’s dedication to wines is the cornerstone of Il Gallo Giallo’s atmosphere. “The eye eats before the mouth,” he says and being in his Hudson Valley wine bar feels like a harmonious bite. What are...More

We were excited to try the newish place in town even though there were a few bad reviews; we are glad we did! The service, the food and the wine were all top notch. I ordered the 3 course meal special for the evening: a...More

I've had consistently excellent, relaxing meals at Gallo Giallo, as have others I know who’ve eaten there. The porchetta plate was very good: quite rich (as porchetta always is) and flavorful (which it sometimes isn't), with a really nice side of greens and white beans....More

I've travelled through Italy, so I 'm amazed at the glop that most Americans think is Italian food. What I've had at several visits to Il Gallo Giallo is the kind of food that I've eaten, happily, in wine bars and tavernas in Italy. The...More

One of us ordered "Le Uova in Purgatorio" which arrived with extremely runny eggs and not particularly good puttanesca sauce (poor-quality olives and not very tasty). My porchetta sandwich (keep in mind that I do not normally eat meat) was way too greasy for me...More
