Carla Pallotta was born and raised in the North End, Boston’s Little Italy, in a home where food was the focal point of everything. Carla and her sister, Christine Pallotta, run Nebo restaurant in Boston where they recreate their mother’s family recipes for their guests. Prior to opening Nebo, Carla and her sister were the owners of Di Giacomo’s, a very successful spa for 23 years. The Pallotta sisters have appeared on Food Network's Throwdown with Bobby Flay and NBC's Today Show, and they were the opening act for Lidia Bastianich's culinary cookbook tour. Nebo was chosen as "best neighborhood restaurant" by both Boston Magazine and The Improper Bostonian.
