Dined Saturday evening at 5:30 pm. We've eaten here on several occassions both at the old location and the new. Food used to be much better. We each had spagetti with meat balls, the spagetti was dull and not tastefull, the meat balls had a premanufactured appearance, texture and taste. The bread was extremely oily topped with a ton of...

My husband and I decided to eat here during our anniversary trip to Galena. It was fabulous. The hostess was great, the waitress was one of the best I've ever had, and the food was delicious! Had to try the fried green tomatoes-excellent. Highly recommend those. The bread they give you is so good, the entrees were perfect, and because... More

Loved the food; loved the service. Thought the name implied Southern cooking, not Italian, but loved it anyway.

We had a great meal at Fried Green Tomatoes! We had been driving all day and we were eating late, so we chose to split an entree and the waitress was very accommodating. The bread that comes with the meal is amazing, with lots of parmesan sprinkled and baked on top. The atmosphere here is so nice with brick, stone... More

We had a great meal at this amazing find on Main Street. The menu offered a variety of gluten free items and vegetarian options, which was important to our party. The restaurant is classy and relaxing -- we loved all the exposed brick and wood beams!

While this restaurant was very charming and seemingly upscale, I believe the prices were a bit high for what you got. The food wasn't terrible, but it wasn't outstanding either, and the amount on your plate did not match up to what you were paying.

Interesting old building in the heart of downtown Galena. Very busy but our party of two got in right away. Deserts looked great even though we did not partake. Food was good and wait staff was attentive even though they were on the go all the time.

We were here on a Friday evening in September. The service was prompt, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable about the various entrees, and not "overbearing". Out of the four different entrees -- lasagna, vegetarian, seafood and a sausage dish -- all of us rated them as excellent. The food came out quickly after we finished our salads, and all of the dishes... More
