Will the Galil Orlite mags fit and work reliably in a Romanian SAR-3?

Nope.

They're made for a milled 3d generation Kalashnikov variant.

Well, I can use them in my Saiga 223 if I taper the front of the mag slightly with a rasp. I'm essentially asking if the magwell shape/geometry is similar between a SAR-3 and a Saiga in 223.

The Saigas are specifically made NOT to be able to use standard geometry AK74 type magazines.

This bit of engineering allows the poly Galil mags to work great (since they're not AK mags), with the slight mods you mention.

I'm sure you can make the Galil mags work, but I suspect you'd need to to perform a major amount of mods to the mag(s) or the rifle (after which, the rifle might not be able to use standard AK mags).
