Great pizza

My wife and I went out for a night on the town. We decided on Cannovas. This place is certainly not the biggest place and it certainly fills up quick. We shared a pizza. The crust was fabulous and so was the pie!

Our family chose to eat here on our first night of our Galena Getaway, after hearing great things about atmosphere and food. We couldn't have asked for a better "first night out" experience. Located towards the end of Main St., you walk in the door and feel at home and comfortable. Surprised by the impressive Specialty Pizza list and nicely... More

Excellent pizza with many many choices for pizza, pasta and wine. We enjoy the food but the restaurant is very small and cold. I realize that on Galena's Main Street that the charm of the historic building lends to a cold and tiny restaurant but I really do not like eating with my winter coat on. Because the restaurant is...

We visited Galena this past weekend for their Iluminaria festivities and ate at Cannovas once again. The pizza was awesome as usual and the service was great. I highly recommend this place. We eat here every time we visit Galena and we never had a bad meal.

Waitress, again adequate, but no personality, and no service... More

We enjoyed the small quiet atmosphere. Had a few drinks and ordered the stuffed pizza! Compares with a good Chicago pie!

Its in and old building downtown. Service was great and pizza was not bad. The sauce could have had more flavor. The main dishes looked real good. Made me wished I had tried one

We received an email from Mike Wolfe stating that Cannovas was the best so when we were in Galena we decided we needed to give it a try. Fantastic pizza (we had the one named Typo) and great wine!
