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.

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
