Wow...very tough call because I am a tough critic when it comes to Italian food and I haven't found anything in LoCo that I thing is really that good. I'll be interested in trying whichever restaurant wins this vote.

Palio's has always been my favorite. But recently I dined at Galletta's. Their pasta is made fresh daily and absolutely delicious. It's a toss up between Palio's and Galleta's for good Italian food in Leesburg. So nice to have a choice.

Galletta's on Loudoun St. in Leesburg is BY FAR the best!
