Customer Spotlight – Gale’s Restuarant

Italy meets California at this Pasadena favorite that has been serving the community for almost 20 years. Gale’s Restaurant calls itself the place “where locals love to eat.” And since opening in November of 2001, Gale’s Restaurant has been a favorite for in-the-know locals who crave fresh, family-style Northern Italian cuisine, done with California style.

Beyond traditional Italian dishes, you will find crave worthy seasonal specials, “healthyish” menu items, whole wheat or gluten-free options, a farm-to-table approach, featured artwork from local artists and a deep commitment to local philanthropy.

Asked if they have a signature dish or other special offering, Gale’s explains that with so many comfort food favorites it’s hard to choose! But when pressed, Owner Gale Kohl says, ”My brother Jerry’s Tortelloni, our Pasta Bolognese and the Pizza Margherita are some of our best-sellers.” Other menu favorites include the Bruschetta, Eggplant Siciliana and the Organic Salmon with Gale’s amazing sautéed broccoli.

The Simple Salad with Bruschetta is the perfect way to start a meal. Add a carefully curated bottle of wine from Gale’s personal selection, or a classic Negroni from the bar, and of course our signature Coconut Cake with raspberry reduction for dessert!

Gale’s loves creating new aperitivos and cocktails that you won’t necessarily see on the menu, so they encourage people to stay connected through social media and email. You can follow @GalesRestaurant on Instagram to see their latest cocktail creations. Gale’s also sends out a newsletter featuring the Chef’s daily specials and even has a treat for your birthday.

Besides being passionate about serving great food, Gale’s is committed to serving the community. They are proud to support many local charities such as Musique, Feed the Frontline, The Armory, Huntington Hospital, Ability First and The Pasadena Humane Society.

California Linen Services is proud to provide Gale’s Restaurant with fresh linens and supplies to help them continue serving the community and supporting local charities. When asked about working with California Linen Services, the owner said they have never used a more quality or customer service oriented company. “They are great partners and quick to respond to any of our needs. They have helped us, especially in such difficult times that we’re all facing together,” she explained. “You could not find a better linen company to work with. Quality, service and quick to respond to any needs.”
