    This place does not disappoint! Family and I have been dinning here several times; food taste delicious and service is always friendly &quick. Our favorites are their mussels in white wine, special fish, and pasta.

    Gale's is a revelation! Great atmosphere, great service, and high quality fresh ingredients. This place is great for a romantic date or for celebrating a birthday or graduation with a large group. We were invited to the celebration lunch for our two friends' graduation from Fuller graduate school. Our group of about a dozen was seated in an area in the back of the restaurant which is setup for large parties. We had no idea that we were about to experience such food joy. The first bite of the burratta with fresh fruit appetizer was exhilarating. The perfect balance of salty and sweet, creamy and tangy, spiced and herbaceous. Beautiful beyond adequate description. You'll just have to try it for yourself. Second course was a really good Caesar salad. The small was actually plenty for two to share. Lovely fresh romain, and plenty of creamy, zesty dressing, and lots of thinly shaved parmesan on top. Instead of croutons it comes with a couple of pieces of amazingly flavorful parmesan crostini on the side. Third course was sharable pasta and pizza. The Fettuccine Carbonara was a massive portion. For once in my reviews I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed. It needed more pepper. Carbonara is supposed to be really peppery. In retrospect I probably could have asked for more fresh cracked black pepper. In contrast, the With Everything pizza is wonderful. The symphony of flavor and texture would make John Williams proud. The sausage was the wow factor for me. Our friend swears by the Portobello Ravioli as the best she has ever had. Fun Facts: -Gale's opened for business over a decade ago. Serving family-style Northern Italian cuisine, done California style, with a farm-to-table approach. -Gale's is known for their coconut cake. -A quote from the owner. "It's all about Family, Fine Dining, and Fun. Local vendors, the freshest ingredients, and the best customers in the world." Gale Kohl So, do yourself a favor and give this fun, fancy, fantastic place a try soon.

    The setting is good, the food is not like before, my chicken was very dry, even the top. Also the Lasagna sauce? Well not berry good.

    My husband and I came for my birthday and the food was amazing!!!!!!!!! I had the fried calamari that also came with fried mushroom, fried jumbo shrimp and fried green beans with a pesto spread. SOO GOOD. We also got a side of meatballs which is worth it. Entrees were: chicken Parmesan and the lasagna bolognese. Delicious! They gave us the famous coconut cake. It was moist and delicious. Servers were great! 5/5
