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. On our menu, guests will find recipes that have been passed down from Sicily through the Gallo family for generations. We offer classic Italian dishes such as Chicken Parmesan, Polpette (spaghetti and meatballs), Branzino and Chicken Marsala as well as Chef Steven Gallo’s more modern dishes like the Integrale and Mad Calamari.

Along the marble bar, guests can enjoy appetizers and specialty drinks created by our in-house mixologist like The Lazy Susan, which packs a punch thanks to the chamomile-infused grappa. Whether you’re visiting for a quick post-work drink or a hearty three-course meal, you’ll find something delicious, comforting and maybe just a touch unexpected at Galli Restaurant.
