Wait Staff

We were a group of 12. Our waitress "Callie" was one of the best waitresses we have ever had. She was very knowledgeable of the menu and remember what each of us ordered when she brought our meals to the table.

This place deserves a much better rating! It was fabulous! The servers were wonderful and the best I've had in a long time. The food was delicious as well! As my son said - like Olive Garden only authentic and 10 times better! They even had a gluten free menu for my niece. From the pasta dishes, to the sandwiches,... More

We recently celebrated my wife 65th birthday there all the grandkids and daughters families. We would not miss an opportunity to dine there if in Galena.

This was a very enjoyable authentic Italian Restaurant. The garlic bread was like I never had garlic bread before. My entree i had was Pasta al la Vinny was amazing! The crab in this entree was like butter. We have talked about driving to Galena from the Chicago area just for dinner. When in Galena just gotta go here!

There are countless places to eat in Galena and many of them have a special atmosphere. Vinny's is a large place with many small dining areas, so we didn't feel crowded or hurried and it was quiet. The portions are very generous, so sharing a meal is a great idea. For sharing there is a small upcharge. Bread and salad... More

We have dined at Vinny's now for the last 10 years. We have never had a bad experience, or a bad meal. We know what we like. I will warn you now though, If you are all about gluten-free, low calorie, or chewing on tree bark and calling that good food, this place IS NOT FOR YOU. If you are... More

This was my first visit to Vinny Vanucchi's and I could not have been more impressed. We had a table of 14 and our server Callie was amazing! She had a great personality and was very welcoming. The service my friends and I received at Vinny Vanucchi's was probably the best service I have ever received at a restaurant! The... More
