It was good

I stopped here with my kids after walking through the town. The server was very friendly. We had two pizzas which were very good. It's a small place but we got seated quickly. Very good.

If you are looking for reasonably priced good Italian food then the place to go in Galena is Connova's. They have a solid selection of pizza and a reasonable selection of pasta and salads. A great place to enjoy good food with friends.

Once we got into the restaurant, realized we had been here a couple years ago. We got two of the largest pizzas for five people and ate all of it. Very good pizza with lots of topping choices.

We have been going here for many years and is always one our regular stops to dine. It has an Italian motiff and was founded by an Italian family that knows their business. Their pizza is one of the best I have ever had and so is everything else on the menu. If you like great Italian food, don't miss... More

We went here for an early supper. Arrive early, because tables fill fast in this small, intimate restaurant! The food was amazing. I got the Tomato Basil Cream Sauce dish, which was SUPERB. A friend got the Alfredo, which she loved. Another friend got Cannova's Classic pizza, which she said was also amazing. We also opted for dessert: PB mousse,... More

My husband and I both ordered the Muffaletta sandwich during our recent visit to Cannovas. The salad was fresh and delicious, and the Muffaletta was OK. It's difficult to find a Muffaletta that compares to the Corner Grocery in New Orleans! The bread is extremely thick, and since the Muffaletta is served on a bun, it is impossible to take... More

This perfect little pizzeria has it all. Great salads, great bread, great pizza and great dessert. We stopped in one night just for drinks and dessert. One of my favorite places in Galena.

This little bar and restaurant is absolutely the best pizza and Italian sandwiches and food I've had in Galena, and I've tried the other two "famous" Italian places in town as well!
