  1. Chef Gallante opened a place in Ardsley (Westchester County) last year ( I tried to have lunch there with a friend yesterday. Open Table didn't seem to work for lunch, so I called. No answer. After 4 calls and two messages before and during service hours, no returned calls. I guess he doesn't need my patronage.

      Thanks, foodiemom10583.

      We really enjoyed Ciano. Had many delicious meals there, including Christmas Eve dinner last year.

        I've read mixed reviews of Italian Kitchen, but there seemed to be some solid options available. Maybe we'll try again. Just curious: Did Ciano offer "7 Fishes" on Christmas Eve?

          We have had 2 very good dinners at Italian Kitchen. Never been for lunch, though.

            Ciano did have Christmas Eve dinner. We went last year. I think there was a special menu, don't remember if it was "7 Fishes."

            You are lucky to have such a talented chef nearby.
