My wife and I went to this restaurant for the first time on Friday night and we do try to eat in the top restaurants. I have to say that this restaurant was excellent. The food was amazing and the service top class. Real Italian...food with a great atmosphere. We could have almost been in Tuscany. Will definitely go back.More

We may not be able to travel overseas , however dining at Galileo transported us temporarily to Italy. The menu catered for all tastes , food was well prepared and flavoursome and service impeccable. Staff were attentive and responsive to the needs of a GF...diner in our party. A basket of GF bread was provided without a special request. The bread from the artisan bakery next door was delicious. We felt like honoured guests at an intimate dinner party. We look forward to our next dining experience at Galileo.More

I would like to make some considerations regarding our experience in your restaurant. It is not the first time I want to clarify even if the last time was a few years ago. I booked for our anniversary, as soon as we arrived we were...seated in a small table and in the ceiling on top at the table we had an air conditioning outlet and the temperature was low, I looked at my wife and I was ready to get up and leave, because the temperature in a room should be very comfortable around 23 degrees. Fortunately, as soon as I mentioned it to the manager, he immediately invited us to the second room at a larger table and with the air conditioning off and we were finally satisfied (smart move by the manager). We chose the three course menu. Compliments in general excellent almost perfect dishes. The vegetable tortelli I would have preferred a drizzle of butter on top at the tortelli, the pasta ragù with meat sauce the sauce was a little liquid, the fish with mushrooms had 2 single small mushroom, the potatoes absolutely too salty, perfect desserts. Mine is just a constructive comments regarding you have details that if they were observed a little more we would have excellence in your dishes. The service is good but even this with very little and without wasting more time or energy could be better an example ? When serve the wine you do from the side of the customer and not reaching out with your arm across the middle of the table. I repeat they are just comments and I hope they are appreciated. I will definitely come back because apart from these details the total experience was very good. My rating is. 85/100 Thank youMore

Invited to a catchup with friends at this restaurant which we have not visited yet. The restaurant is lovely and traditional and had excellent ambience. Service was excellent and all aspects of the meal and beverages were very well explained. The food was very tasty...and very large servings. Almost on the verge of too rich but I really enjoyed the flavours. The beef cheeks had amazing flavour and the meat was very tender. Had a great night and look forward to our next visit.More

We are here last night and thought the food and service was delicious. However, both of us felt really full after the massive entrees. We intentionally avoided ordering the pasta entree after being advised they were large servings. My husband had the veal meatballs and...I had the eggplant & ricotta parcels. I felt embarrassed when my beautiful main course of beef cheek had to be put in a container for me to take home! I think the standard of food is excellent, However the food now offered is more hearty. The set menu makes it tricky to enjoy your experience as all the entree options are all heavy going. There is no way I could have got to dessert and that was disappointing. The waiter had explained to us that the menu was structured $60 for the starter then main (with sides!) and $70 for the three courses. This is very good value for Perth but my advice is go VERY hungry and order light.More

Chose CBC for our wedding anniversary and it did not disappoint. Wonderful energy from the moment we walked in. Engaging staff and excellent service. Then there was the food. Just brilliant. We only live a 5 min drive away but had never been before. What...a miss on our part. Driving home my wife said “I’d go there any day of the week”.... We will be back. Thank you.

Booked here for 70th birthday dinner, not having been here for about 4 years. Although it was ok, general impression was, that it was no longer the fine dining experience of the past. Set menu of 2 dishes for $60 and 3 for $70 was...not special and in fact not value for money. Gravalax entree was quite pathetic for a place like this. Bar tenders suggested cocktail was the best part although highly priced.More

Over the years, generally visit 1 to 2 times annually and has always been a great experience. Never fails to deliver, not a complete take on traditional Italian food, but is modernised for current styles and palates. Not yr traditional pizza pasta place The chef...takes regional dishes and executes them really well. Flavours u wont find normally in Italian restaurants Great service, casual classy fine dining without too much BS Worth trying if u haven't visited before, I recommend this place as an ItalianMore

Terrific Italian restaurant with a interesting and tasty menu for lovers of fine Italian dining. This is complimented with an extensive wine list. The Italian Gin was also very good. Terrific staff who were more than happy to assist. Only down side is that it...can get quite noisy.More
