Great experience with great food. Feels like a big home kitchen. Smaller restaurant so go early and expect to wait, but its fun, its good and time flies.

The meal was delicious. I would recommend an 8 inch pizza for one person. I ordered a Chicken Alfredo pizza and it was amazing. Probably one of the best pizza's I've ever eaten. My wife ordered a cheese pizza with olives and was also very happy. They were also very accommodating of her allergies since many things are made in... More

I love the Venetian, my daughter loves the cheese. The Chicken Tuscany is an award winner, love that too! The house salad is so different with sausage and artichokes, their homemade dressing is delicious. Im getting hungry!!

Small but quaint Italian restaurant in downtown Galena. The wine and pizza were good. We ordered the stuffed pizza with sausage and pepperoni. My daughter had a small cheese, thin crust. The sausage was a bit strong for our liking but otherwise it was a great dining experience. They put paper down and give you crayons to keep kids (and... More

We asked several shop owners for a recommendation for an Italian place to eat and were told to go here. By Italian, we meant authentic Italian, i.e. pasta, chicken, seafood. Apparently that wasn't clear because 90% of the menu was various pizza's. Although the assortment of pizza's was extensive, they only had a few basic choices for pasta...and it wasn't... More

The bruschetta is delicious--and can be eaten as a meal in itself. The pizza is always great; crisp, thin crust and perfect toppings. It is a family favorite. The quaintness of the restaurant and pleasant staff make it worth the trip.

We ordered a supreme/deluxe pizza to go and it was so good. The perfect thing after a full body massage.

The best pizza in the area!! Love their pizzas, house salad dressing, freshly baked bread and pastas, especially the lasagna. They don't take reservations but we've never had to wait long at the bar. And we've always had exceptional service even on busy weekends. They do deliver or you can pick up your pizza if you prefer. They also have... More

We gladly waited over an hour and then returned up to the where the hostest was playing on her cell phone. Before addressing us, she gave a table to a... More
