I am Italian and make my own pasta at home, so of course I NEVER order pasta in restaurants, as I think mine is the best. Gallo's, however, is the exception - their Cavatelli with Bolognese sauce is FANTASTIC! (I think it's called 'Pasta Russo'...More

I have to admit that I feel kinda silly reviewing Gallo's Kitchen. There are zillions of reviews telling how great this place is so I feel like I'm cheating. This was our first visit and we will definitely be coming back. The food was marvelous!...More
