After 18 years of restaurant experience and owner of 12 Manhattan restaurants, Besim Kukaj has created an “at home” Italian feeling at Gallo Nero III. Another comfortable village restaurant discovery by Juliane and myself. We have dined here multiple times solely due to the delicious food (and really nice Chef who will come out to greet us all). With years of experience as second in command in the kitchen at Cipriani, Executive Chef Augusto Ferreira’s menu at Gallo Nero III reflects a passion for sumptuous cooking. A very high 4.5 stars on Yelp. This is truly a hidden gem that deserves to be packed nightly and to be visited over and over. Our incredible menu includes butternut squash soup, arugula and goat cheese salad, and stuffed portabella mushroom, with entrees such as halibut, veal chop, roasted chicken, and squash and peanut risotto, finished with chocolate caramel crunch cake & cheesecake.
