Editorial Review

Mark Galletta, his wife and his parents all work in the Italian specialty shop that opened a year ago on Loudoun Street in Leesburg. Galletta's offers sandwiches and salads for the luncheon crowd, cheeses, meats and roasted vegetables to take home, and the crown jewels -- fresh pastas and sauces made on-site daily. Tiny cheese raviolini are the perfect addition to hot chicken broth for a quick soup. Larger ravioli or any of the flat noodles are great with the homemade meat, marinara and pesto sauces. There are also prepared foods such as lasagna and eggplant parmigiano.
