Love the quaint atmosphere of this restaurant. Great Italian salad and pizza. Nice wine selection. Haven't ordered anything but pizza. But I'm sure it is all very good. Used to live in Rockford, so I love it that they serve the regional Italian bakery bread with the salad.

Really tasty pizza with great crust! The house salad was a great appetizer and their homemade bread is awesome too! We've eaten here every time we've come to Galena.

A much needed weekend away took us to Galena and we were craving good pizza. There are three pizza options within a few blocks and we strongly suggest the other two...even though we have not been to them. The owner was seating people and was flighty at best; clearly doesn't seem like she's been at it very long. They needed... More

Went there for a late lunch on Sunday afternoon. The food was excellent, we ordered the Sicilian Pizza and a bottle of wine. Sat at the front window (if one of the two tables are open request one) which was a great place to sit enjoy our bottle of wine, Pizza and people watch. Our pizza was prepared perfectly and... More

Someone told us we had to have pizza here....we did but wished we hadn't. The place was loud, the pizza was burnt. The worst part was coming out of the bathroom and seeing their bread sitting outside the door....yuck. We might have come on an off night but I wouldn't try it again....too many other places to venture to!

My husband and I arrived a day early for a business meeting and went into town to find a relaxing place for dinner. Walking along Main Street and looking inside to see where all the locals were made our choice of Cannova's an easy one as nearly every other place at the dinner hour was empty. When we walked in...

We were looking forward to eating our favorite Cannova's dish - Pasta Genovese - on our deck overlooking the South golf course on the most beautiful evening we've had all year. We sat down with our wine and opened the container and found pasta, tomatoes, and olives with no sauce and no taste. We called the restaurant and at first... More

First experience, but we will be back! My wife and I had the Pan/Stuffed (I forget their crusts) and it was incredible. Crust was well done and very crispy. Toppings were fresh and the sausage had a delicious and unique flavor. Our friends had a crispy thin crust special with basil and sausage, and it too was cooked to perfection... More

This is a quaint restaurant that knows how to make pizza well. One of the best pizzas I've had in awhile. Staff was friendly and courteous as well!
