For the best in pizza, pasta, and more, nothing beats the homestyle tastes of Gallo Coal Fire Kitchen in Lewiston, New York. Located right on Center Street in the heart of downtown, Gallo Coal Fire Kitchen is the perfect place to share some wine and slices with friends and enjoy the best of the fall season in the Niagara region.
The specialty pizzas, or pizze, are always a solid place to start at Gallo. The Carbonara is a local favorite, featuring bechamel, mozzarella, pancetta, and egg yolk for a wholesome, hearty flavor through and through. The Fresca is similarly beloved locally, coming with olive oil, mozzarella, dressed arugula, tomato, red onion, and kalamata olives for an excellent spin on a staple.
“Anyone who loves pizza will absolutely love Gallo,” said local Niagara Falls resident Maureen Grabowski. “The traditional cheese pizza is the perfect intro to them, the pomodoro and mozzarella is divine all on its own honestly, but of course they have all the best toppings to choose from too for a make-your-own.”
For pasta lovers, the paste section of the menu is full of all the classics and more. The parmesan cotoletta is a phenomenal pasta dish, featuring penne noodles, pomodoro, mozzarella cheese, and a breaded chicken cutlet for a zesty forkful every time. The creamy chicken marsala is superb too, coming with penne as well, sauteed chicken, mushrooms, onions, diced tomatoes, and a creamy marsala wine sauce.
Make sure to check out the small plates, or ciccetti, over at Gallo too. The calamari fritti and Bavarian pretzels with beer cheese are always solid, as are the wings, which come in Calabrian chili (hot), Sicilian, garlic parmesan, and spicy BBQ varieties.
