A plate of frozen seafood with no taste. Surprising since looks decent. At least the price is high. We also had mediocre orchietta with what seemed like tomato sauce from the bottle. If you are having trouble finding a bad restaurant in Italy, this is highly recommended.

It was a very nice experience. I would like to recommend this trattoria as the best choice in Gallipoli. The menu is not a touristic one, it includes only the real tipical "salento" speciality. The mix of antipasti was amazing, I also had pittole twice 'cause they were too good. Spaghetti with vongole were very tasty and al dente. The... More

After 3 weeks in Sicily and Puglia rate their seafood antipasto the best we've had. Service from the 2 brothers running the place was excellent- friendly and attentive.

I always make a stop at trattoria Il Gallo when I'm in beautiful Gallipoli. Great restaurant for local seafood dishes with outdoor and indoor seating. Start with a mix seafood platter as appetizer and than ask for the fresh catch of the day. Silvano, the proprietor always make sure our experience is very pleasant.

From the point we entered, we were greeted by owner/GM Silvano Vincenti. Fresh, Fresh, Fresh is the best way to describe Il Gallo. The food was amazing, the service was top notch. I would highly recommend this restaurant, you will not be disappointed. Thank you again Silvano for the wonderful food and great evening.

In the old back streets of Gallipoli, there are fancier places to eat than here, but we had a fantastic authentic simple Italian meal - all of the flavours were well balanced, memorably good.

This trattoria is tucked away down one of the alleys away from the buzzing Via Antonietta de Pace. Good pasta, fish and seafood. Two-course dinner with wine and mineral water will cost you 30 EUR a head.
