Joanne Trattoria — Great Chicken Parmesan

After visiting Joanne Trattoria, I can conclude that Lady Gaga grew up eating some very tasty Italian food.

Lady Gaga’s family restaurant, Joanne Trattoria, is located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The definite standout at the restaurant was the “red gravy,” a thick tomato sauce that is perfect on Joanne’s al dente spaghetti and unforgettable chicken parmesan. With a thin layer of bubbling, oven baked cheese and the sweet “red gravy,” the lightly breaded chicken parmesan is complete. I simply could not get enough of the tomato sauce and even ordered some extra “red gravy” on the side: it was that good.

Joanne Trattoria is definitely worth a visit (or five).
