This Englewood eatery may not be decades old, but despite debuting less than five years ago, it has all the markings of a classic. The family behind Gallo is from Sicily, and splits the space between a bakery counter and a sit-down dining area complete with a full bar. Like many red-sauce joints in town, Gallo serves a savory cannoli stuffed with sausage and strips of jalapeños, but while they're called "mini," the hefty bites are a superior take on this regional favorite, with plenty of mozzarella oozing out of the thin dough. As diners dig into such traditional dishes as chicken parm and lasagna Bolognese, the staff marches tray after tray of Italian cookies, lobster tail pastries and sweet cannoli over to the bakery counter, where you can load up on treats to devour at home. Be sure to try a shot of the limoncello, too, made here in the Sicilian style, with the addition of cream for a smoothie-like consistency.
