If you are Italian or simply love Italian culture, you might know that Gallo Nero or the Black Rooster is a symbol of pride, power, and victory which comes from a classic Italian legend. But now you don’t have to go all the way to Italy to experience this famous legend. Take a trip down Lower Greenville, and you will find a small family-owned Italian restaurant that takes those words to the top.
Gallo Nero has been open since August 2018 and even though they have only been open for a few months, it’s now one of the top places to go to in the neighborhood. One of the owners Agon Raka told us that they wanted to create a great atmosphere where people can come to relax and enjoy of a great selection of wine and great food, nothing fancy but perfect after a long day of work. And how could you not when the place even has an aquarium and waterfall.
At Gallo Nero you can enjoy over 70 types of wines that keep themselves under the perfect temperature at their upstairs wine cellar which is a must see when you are visiting. But if wine it’s not your cup of tea, make sure you ask for their handmade Crepes which will indulge your palate with every bite and will take you right to the streets of Italy. You can customize your toppings with your favorite berries as well as their ultimate Nutella sauce among others.
When visiting the Bistro for dinner or lunch, make sure you ask for Raka’s favorites such as Chicken Murphy if you are up for some hot flavors or the Tortellini Alla Panna that will entice your taste buds with their killer Vodka sauce, simply delish! You can also enjoy Veal Entrees, such as Veal Marsala, or keep looking down the menu for some seafood options such as your favorite Shrimp Alfredo or their one of a kind Pizza’s that you can order in two sizes, 10 in or 18 in, perfect for a party.
We enjoyed our time at Gallo Nero, and we know that you will too. Without a doubt, Gallo Nero is the perfect place for a Friday night hangout or accompany them for happy hour and bring your furry friend and dine in their pet-friendly patio.
