Le Gallo Rosso

When it comes to restaurant recommendations, David and I love to ask the locals what their favorite spots are. Rarely are they amiss. One night we were eating at that delicious Mediterranean spot down the street and started chatting with an older couple from Louisville. They talked for about 5 minutes about the delicious lasagna made by a local Italian lady at The Red Rooster. We jotted down the name and promptly forgot....

A few months ago we remembered but we couldn't recall the Italian translation for Red Rooster. We looked in the phone book under "La" and David ended up talking to several Spanish speakers in search of the local Italian place. Finally, we hit upon Le Gallo Rosso. We popped in one Saturday night to this quaint Bed & Breakfast/Italian Restaurant on Bardstown only to find we should have made a reservation. We went elsewhere. This week, we returned for a date night. We were not disappointed.

A little higher priced than our usual date night, it was still manageable. For bread, salad with homemade dressing, and a slice of lasagna the price tag was $13.95. I had the freshly made spinach ravioli. The servings were so large that David and I both ate leftovers last night...and I have it in my lunch bag again today! It's a popular spot on weekends especially, so be sure to make a reservation.

Yum!! Have you ever eaten at Ray Parella's on Frankfort? It is kind of pricey too, but so worth it! (I even caught a glimpse of them making their own pasta in the kitchen one time!)
