“Outstanding Menu!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

This restaurant overall was outstanding. The menu has a huge selection of entrées and prices are so reasonable. Your meal starts with a fantastic salad and garlic bread. It's a nice Italian restaurant with the perfect ambience, and the servers couldn't be nicer. Karisa was a sweetheart ! Every time we go out to Galena, we always come here. No doubt, this is the best restaurant in Galena.

“Italian food”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

It was OK - the eggplant dish was good, not as heavy as traditional parmesan. After hiking up the steps (a necessity in hill Galena), it was disappointing to find an ambiance more like a pizza joint than a nice restaurant. The waiter was attentive but not "fine" dining.

“Best in Galena”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

I just love this little Italian restaurants... The servers are excellent, it is a fun Italian setting, well worth the money!

The bread is phenomenal, the salad comes to you all in a large bowl all you can eat, the dressing is a bit oily but it is very good!

If you leave hungry it is your fault!

This was my second visit to Galena and we had a blast here, can not go by it without stopping here at this restaurant

Doesn't matter how your dressed but come dressed up or casual, it will fit your needs, I prefer to get dressed up

“always delicious”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

This is a staple when we visit Galena. We always stay for two nights so we can get our fix of Vinnies and Log Cabin. We appreciate great food and this doesn't fall short. Always delicious!
