Founded by husband-and-wife team Steven and Karen Gallo, along with business partner Michael Forrest, Galli Restaurant features Italian Comfort Food and great cocktails on cobble stoned Mercer Street in Soho, and on the corner of Ludlow and Rivington Streets in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
The atmosphere is casual yet elegant, with both dining space and a beautiful marble bar. The space is accented with black and white Gallo and Forrest family portraits.
The menu features recipes that have been passed down from Sicily through the Gallo family for generations. With classic Italian dishes as well as more modern dishes, there are plenty of gluten free options.
