|Our check at La Galleria 33|
About 2 hours later, at 10:25pm, we received a phone call from the restaurant, from someone allegedly named Rita, arguing about our complaint. After loudly telling us that we were wrong and that she did not understand the nature of our complaint the woman on the phone called us "a pair of cunts" and hung up. Before hanging up she challenged us to find one restaurant in the North End who did not charge for soda refills...we called around and found 3 restaurants located just a few blocks away from La Galleria 33 who readily told us "no, we do not charge for soda refills."

To start our meal we received a basket of bread. The bread was deliciously fresh, perfect for soaking up traditional Italian sauces. Along with the bread came a tasteless hummus like spread. We decided to have more of the bread with our meal but passed on its oily accompaniment.

As our first appetizer we had La Galleria 33's Crispy Calamari topped with a lemon aioli and Italian parsley. The lemon aioli was the star of this dish! Its assertive citrous flavor balanced perfectly against the slightly chewy fried calamari pieces.

UPDATE: At around noon on September 21st we received two other phone calls from Rita at La Galleria 33. She saw our latest Twitter post of homemade blueberry muffins and called to say "unsweetened apple sauce you fat bitch after you had 5 sodas last night." We have blocked La Galleria 33 from all of our social media cites and would like to ask its owners and/or staff to please stop harassing us.
