Attention all Indiana pasta lovers! A website just named the best Italian restaurant in the state. Have you eaten there before?

If I have one food weakness, it's Italian food. It's no lie when I tell you that I could eat it every day...if my better half would allow me. Spaghetti, lasagna, ziti, alfredo, chicken parmesan, the list goes on and on. As a child, I was always told that I would turn into pasta one day because I ate it so much. I'm still waiting for that to happen. Nevertheless, it's safe to say that if pasta is the topic of conversation, I am 100% on board with it. I could talk all day about the deliciousness of carbs and sauce. That's why I was immediately intrigued when I saw a website sharing the best Italian Restaurant in each state. I had to know more.

The Best Italian Restaurant in Indiana

The food website, Taste of Home recently listed the best Italian Restaurant in each state, and my mouth was watering just thinking about dining at all of these places. When it comes to Indiana, it is one that I have not visited before, but I definitely plan to, the next time I am in that area. The restaurant they chose as the best in Indiana is Galo’s Italian Grill in Richmond.

Here's what Taste of Home said about Galo's:

A hidden gem in Richmond, Galo’s Italian Grill is not to be missed. Enjoy sitting under an eye-catching ceiling mural, and try not to fill up on the fresh focaccia bread and seasoned olive oil served before every meal.

That description didn't tell me much, so I looked through the menu and photos of the dishes, and WOW! This place looks AMAZING!

According to Galo’s Italian Grill:

LOOK: Here's Why Indiana is Pretty Much the Best Place on Earth [As Told by Hoosiers]

Reddit user, u/youcanneverbanme recently asked their fellow Hoosiers in the Indiana subreddit what they liked about living here. The question received hundreds of responses and the vast majority of them were positive. Of course, there were some that were negative because there are sad people who are perpetually angry on the internet and want everyone to know it for some reason, but we won't concern ourselves with those. We want to focus on the good, and when it comes to the good, there's plenty of it to enjoy.
