We heard about this restaurant from a friend and decided to try it for Mother's day. Of course we know it's a difficult day for restaurants and expected service to be a little slow and it was - but the service was so friendly and the food was so good, honestly we hardly noticed. I had the Portuguese codfish -... More

Visited several times over the last couple of years and have never been disappointed. The food is usually slightly different than other Portuguese restaurants you may have tried in the Fall River, MA or Bristol, RI areas. It must be the Brazilian "Samba" influence. I enjoy the small but always lively bar area rather than the restaurant section. There are... More

My husband goes to this restaurant regularly when he's working in the area. He loves it and had mentioned it to me many times. I finally had a chance to go with him and I liked it too. My husband ordered Bacallhau Na Brasa and I ordered Bife À Chefe. Both dishes were delicious. I ordered my steak medium and... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants. Service can be a bit slow, but if you aren't in a rush, its not a problem. Relax and enjoy the meal! The sangria is perfect, and the food is always delicious and fresh. Have the chocolate mousse for dessert, you wont be disappointed :)

This was always one of my favorite places to eat and my Fiance and I loved the cuisine and the corner table because it was so secluded and romantic!!! But they must have changed chefs or changed food suppliers because the last two times we had dinner there, the shrimp was small overdone and tough and the steak was full... More

Walked in and the man said "There is no tables left" but he tried his hardest to find us a spot and he did! Food was excellent! Waitress was a bit slow. Took about 25 mins to be approached by her, she brought our drinks/food then never saw sign of her again. The "bus boy" brought our bill. Although service... More

We haven't been in several months, but where in the area and gave Galito another try. The food was as good as always and the service improved after the World Cup Soccer game ended and we had the waitstaff's attention. For a Saturday night there where only 11 people in the place, they really should advertise because they Portuguese food... More
