My husband and I ate here almost 14 years ago when we were there to celebrate our 20th anniversary, and now, I went with my daughter for a break from teaching (spring break). The salad was good, the wine was excellent, and we both loved our California pizza!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our pizza and chicken piccata. While there are on beers on tap, you can get a cold one in a frosted glass. We tried the the carrot cheese cake, which at best, is average. They also have some better teas but no espresso. Parking is difficult even in the off season. Make a left after the restaurant... More

Nice atmosphere. Pizza was some of the best we had. Wish we had more time to go back and try other items on the menu. Service was very attentive.

Try the lasagna. This is one of our favorite restaurants in Galena. Great staff. Great food! The deep dish pizza is to die for!

We found another great restaurant. Cozy, clean, tablecloth-topped tables, food is all fresh and homemade--the bread, the pizza crust, the sauce. We ordered the classic pizza (swapped out the black olives for roasted red peppers) and really enjoyed it. The surprise was we liked the lasagne even more! It is made with all beef (no pork, if that matters to... More

We eat here every few weeks and it is always an excellent meal. The dressing that they use on the salad is superb, the pizzas are all wonderful (fresh ingredients, thin crust, light sauce) as are the pastas. They usually have a special written on the board at the window too. It is very reasonably priced and the food really... More

This friendly place has been a Galena mainstay since 1921, serving up great Italian food (from family recipes) at reasonable prices. Our Chicken Tuscany pizza was superb, the service was great, and the mix of lots of locals (always a good sign) and out-of-towners was great fun. And---it is not too noisy to converse at a comfortable level. Sit near... More

The margherita pizza is wonderful. Carried out, but the restaurant is very nice. Would eat here again,

After a long pizza free week my husband announced I WANT PIZZA TONIGHT! We were staying at the Desoto House and I checked tripadvisor. We decided to try Cannovas Pizzeria for the first time. I can't recall which pizza we ordered, but it was very good. We admired the food that was being served to other tables and and everything... More

Walking by, this didn't look like a pizza place, so I was surprised by the variety of pizzas on the menu. I had the Bianca: cheese, fresh tomatoes, spinach and garlic. I loved the thin crispy crust! I also liked their pasta sauce, which I sampled off my husband's plate. He thought the sauce was too sweet and that his... More
