We enjoy thin crust pizza, and they do that very well here. If you enjoy adult beverages, the drinks are excellent.

This pizza is amazing!! The cracker thin crust is done to perfection. Their homemade salad dressing is so unique and delicious. This is one of our most favorite pizza places anywhere and we travel a ton!! Keep it up and I'll keep coming!

Well, we tried to go eat here tonight. My sister said it was very small, so we called and asked if we could reserve a table. The answer was no, it is first come first served. So we head down to the resturant, finally find a place to park (those who have been in Galena will understand) and walk in.... More

We eat there every time we are in town. Pizza crust is awesome and every pasta dish we've ever tried was great also!

Our server was rather unfriendly and cold. The new bartender was friendly. The pizza was flavorful with crispy crust. We noticed there were a LOT of take out orders, even though the tables weren't full on a Friday night. We would take it to go next time.

We loved the pizza here. The space is small and super crowded with no place to wait. That is the downfall. No matter where you sit you had people looking at you. But the food was so good and service was great. We would do carry our next time though!

The pizza was OK but nothing too special. The crust was kind of bland and flavorless. The service was good and wine selections were also good.

This was our second time at Cannova's. The first time we had their pizza. This time we tried one of the pasta dishes, the fettuccine Alfredo. The pasta was well-prepared and the Alfredo was perfect. Preceding the entree was a wonderful house salad.

Thank Matthew U
