Pasta Dystopia: Roberto Donna’s Galileo III in ‘Disarray’

In the Post, Y&H alum Tim Carman paints a rather disheartening portrait of famed chef Roberto Donna's downtown restaurant Galileo III: a downsized menu, a depleted wine cellar, staffers jumping ship, a filthy kitchen, and a celebrity chef dogged by mounting debts—more than $1 million, if you add up all the penalties and interest from Donna's many lawsuits. "[I]t was just disarray," is how one former employee describes the scene. Donna would not comment on all the legal issues. “I just do the menus," he told Carman. But he noted that the landlord hasn't asked him to move out. Yet.
