Checking In: “Kitchen Nightmares” TV Show Filming at La Galleria 33 on Salem Street

We checked in with Rita, Lisa and Nicky DiPietrantonio at La Galleria 33 to see how the production was coming along for an upcoming episode with Celebrity Chef Gordon Ramsay and his show “Kitchen Nightmares.” For those who have seen the show, the first scene is usually the “nightmare” where diners are encouraged to be extremely critical of the food and service. Rita said the diners enjoyed the food but they are helping them make it better. The production has to make a story, so there will likely be some drama added so that Chef Ramsey can “fix it,” all in the name of good publicity to bring new customers to the restaurant located at 125 Salem Street in Boston’s North End. In addition to La Galleria 33, the DiPietrantonio’s parents own L’Osteria also on Salem Street. Find out more at
