Vincent Rallo, the endlessly ebullient owner of Rallo's Restaurant in Locust Point, died this morning at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson.
Frederick N. Rassmussen's obituary is here.
Rallo's stands at the gateway to Locust Point. which was unknown territory in the 1980s, when the settlement of Federal Hill began to spread to the south and west. Rallo's was the introduction to the area for many of newcomers, and Vinent Rallo was the first friendly face they saw.
