There's a reason tables are often in short supply at this relatively small place: the food and service are consistently excellent. No pretense or fancy frills, just great pizza and other Italian favorites at reasonable prices. Good selection of wines by the glass and bottle too. We've eaten here many times and have never been disappointed.

We had a great to at Cannovas. The waitress was great. It was busy and tightly packed, but the service and food was great. The restaurant is little but nice and they have a system that works. Our pizza was great. It more then just Pizza Hut.

Our local cousins recommended this restaurant - and what a delightful evening it was. Food was ample, well prepared, and delicious. The salads were great, and I enjoyed a thin-crust pizza with unusual toppings that worked well together. I thought we were very spoiled, coming from Southern California, but this place exceeds our trendy restaurants! We'd return when in the... More

This place specializes in gourmet, NY style, thin crust pizza. They also have several other Italian dishes, but I always come for the pizza and their house salad. One of my favorite places to dine is with great ambiance and excellent yet quaint service. Modest pricing with an average wine list.

It was good. We had pizza and a pasta dish. The sauce was a little sweeter as others have said. But i thought it was still delicious. We had the Sicilian pizza if i am remembering correctly. It was very good. No sauce though, which was a little different for me. We do not have a good non-chain pizza place... More

The atmosphere is classic Galena. Brick walls, old style Italian eatery. We always start with the Bruschetta and it is excellent. Usually it is served cold but at Cannova's it's warm.....very tasty. My daughter and I split a 12" pizza and it was the perfect size. We both like thin, crispy crust and the pizza is outstanding. My wife had... More

The dinners are all good. The bread is irresistible. But I must have the pizza every time I go. Have always had good service.

Many thanks to the staff at Cannovas. We got there probably 15 minutes before close, and they were super accommodating. The pizza is really the best in town. Traditional Italian style pizza with top-notch ingredients. Awesome. April took care of us, and was perfect. She improved our visit from great to excellent. Our table of "douches" will definitely be back...... More
