Love the food and the ambiance of this restaurant. If you like Italian food, this is the place to come. Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin are even singing in the background. We enjoyed our meals and plan on returning here again.

We visited Galena IL this last weekend and again had an enjoyable experience. The food is excellent and the atmosphere reminds you of an Italian bistro. You can't go wrong with this restaurant.

Great location, great atmosphere. Food is very good but not to die for. Bread is delicious and our waiter was great. Definitely worth a stop in.

The food was melt in your mouth good. The place has character. The troubadour playing the "squeeze box" at the bottom of the stairs added to the experience.

Arrived in Galena on a Sunday late afternoon and started looking for somewhere to eat and found this restaurant. Very welcoming and excellent service. Food pretty good and plenty of it, but nit outstanding. However, left there feeling OK, so yes, not a bad place! Excellent wine list and entrees come with a good salad and superb garlic bread.

We sat outside to eat, our waitress was great. Food and drinks arrived quickly. The garlic bread and salad were delicious. My husband had the veal marsala which he said was good but not outstanding. I had papa john's stuffed shells, nice but not great. Finished our meal with a dish of spumoni that was ridiculously priced. Glad we went... More

You leave here with a pretty good sized bill and you think to yourself, this was okay. The atmosphere is good, it's quaint and comfortable; red checkered oil cloths for each table. The garlic bread is the highlight of the meal, the salad is okay but overdressed. The portions are fair. My son and I had the Pasta Vinny and... More

We dined here and found the food average and a tad overpriced. Service was average and the surroundings are interesting. It was OK but not what I would deem outstanding. Nothing bad but nothing stood out.
