Found this place by accident when I attended a ukulele jam held each second Saturday. Thank you Galinas for hosting this fun event. Their pizza is my favorite. It's the garlic in the sauce I think that makes the difference. Regardless, it's great. I also have enjoyed several of their sandwiches. Too much for one meal in my case, but... More

Visiting the area for a big dance competition in town. Stopped in here around 5:15 on a Saturday night. Looked as if they had a bigger party of high school kids in one room of the restaurant. The only other seating available was in the front dining room. We walked in and immediately noticed at least 4 or more dirty... More

Terrible. We waited over an hour for our food and our group had to leave before it came. I waited for it and took it to go. No apologies for the wait. The lids weren't even closed on the to go containers and after all of that, the food spilled everywhere while carrying it the bag. I will not be... More

We have went there twice in the past month with a large group, we are always able to get right in, seated and served. Their pizza is phenomenal! Definitely one of the best pizza places in Springfield. Highly recommend a visit there!

Stayed in Springfield and wanted to find a restaurant but nothing took our fancy. Found this place and what a find. Busy busy as it was a Friday night. Without doubt, the best pizza we've ever had and we've had them in Rome, Milan, Venice and New York and Chicago. Owner is 100% efficient in service and definitely worth trying... More

The place may not look like much but food is very good. I would go here anytime. Pizza is unique. Sauce is a little different. Sausage on pizza is great. The dinners are very good. Stuffed shells are awesome. Meatball sandwich is great. I really like this place. Family owned and run for years. Use to go here all the... More

My husband and I were in town for a hockey tournament. We decided to stroll downtown Springfield. Since we had no idea where to eat, we asked a local. He recommended this place. The meatball sub is awesome! Friendly staff and lots of great choices on the menu. Nothing fancy, but we thought the atmosphere was very charming. Lots of... More

Someone used my name & wrote a horrible review about Gallina's & that's not cool the staff is very friendly, they really go out of the way for their customers. Joe the dad is a real sweetheart, Joe the son is my best friend & the mother Rosa is the kindest person you ever want to meet.
