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

Husband and I stopped in to Cannova's after peering into the restaurant and noticing some delicious looking pizzas and food. And we were not disappointed. We had the special caprese salad which consisted of 6 large slices tomato and 6 large slices of fresh mozzarella on top of greens and drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Also enjoyed chatting with the bartender/manager... More

This is some of the best pizza we have ever had. Fun atmosphere and really wonderful staff. LOVED IT and we were not even in the mood for pizza! We stopped in because when we glanced in the window the pizza looked incredible. If you like pizza you must eat here!

OK, I will admit I am a pizza snob! That said this was a quality thin crust pizza. Crust was crispy on the outside and had great chew in the middle. Toppings had a uniqueness that was refreshing and tasty. Great amount of choices for topping as well, definitely would recommend!!
