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

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!

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.
