From the rich pastas to the savory mains,Galli Restaurant pairs comfort food with a young, classy vibe.It’s easy to see why newcomer Galli Restaurant is quickly becoming a favorite in the neighborhood. From the rich pastas to the savory mains, this is comfort food with a young, classy vibe. As you glance around at the fashionable crowd and industrial interiors of this polished Soho spot, a neon sign beckons you onward. A sunlit backroom awaits for you to enjoy owner Steve Gallo’s Italian family favorites. Start things off with a plate of their popular baby riceballs (filled with green peas, chopped meat and mozzarella and dressed with pomodoro sauce). Next up, the shrimp salad makes the perfect light but satisfying lunch (with mesclun greens, goat cheese, grilled asparagus, tomatoes and balsamic vinaigrette). For a heartier family favorite, go for the pasta alla vodka (penne with prosciutto, shallots and a pink vodka-based sauce) or the classic chicken parm (served breaded or grilled with your choice of pasta or salad). You’ll also want to try a General Hugh cocktail (a crisp mixture of Smith+Cross rum, Carpano Antica sweet vermouth, honey syrup and orange bitters) while you taste the tradition in the chicken franchese (juicy pan-seared chicken, white wine, lemon butter and organic garden vegetables). As you enjoy these comforts of a home-cooked meal in Galli’s chic atmosphere, you’ll wonder when your apartment got so stylish.
