Never had a bad meal here ever. When friends come to visit this is where we always take them. Good value for the money. Excellent garlic bread and salad.

We had 13 in our group as we were celebrating my parents 50th wedding anniversary. We had reservations and got in right away. The food was great and large portions! The service was great! I will have to say if you are in Galena it is a must stop place to eat!

Great atmosphere and food! The garlic bread was the best i have ever had! There was no waiting and the staff was professional and courteous. Next time in Galena I will be eating here again.

My husband and I stopped at this restaurant for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. The atmosphere was very relaxing at a cozy table with a window view. Our food was fantastic but made even better by the waitress. Alysse H. was excellent. The family style salad and garlic bread were every bit as good as our entrée. We frequent restaurants... More

We had been told how great this place was and we tried it and agreed that this was an excellent place for some delicious pasta.

We loved the food. Service was good, not overly friendly, though. It was pretty noisy and the tables were very crowded in. I would highly recommend it.

We were in town for the Wine Lover's Weekend and wanted a nice restaurant to go to after the wine tasting. We had eaten here before but it has been a few years, and we wanted to take our friends here. We made reservations as it was a Saturday night and I would highly recommend it. You can make them...

Well this used to be a upscale Italian restaurant but not anymore. First thing we did while we waited for our table was we went to the bar for drinks. The young bartender was clueless how to make drinks. I'm sure he felt bad be never the less we did go here for this. Got our table and waiter we... More

We at here twice during our visit to Galena, the first time by choice, the second time because it was included as part of a wine tour package. We would not have returned by choice. We had been to Vinny's on other occasions in the past and had always found it to be just great. Loved the building and all... More
