As the name suggests, the Fried Green Tomatoes are tasty as was all the meals we tried. The down side is the cost. Very spendy for a simple Italian meal. Also, be ware of the "wine specials". We had a really great wine there, for $25+ per bottle and like it so much we looked around until we found it at Trader Joes for $5.

According to our 5 year old, "This pasta rocks!" The by far best Italian food in Il. Reasonably priced and a fun atmosphere. Great place for the family as well! Great place to go that gives you the upscale feel without the upscale price as well as a nicer place to go with family. Nice relaxing dinner, and the owner and staff really make you feel like you are at home with family. Can't recommend it enough!!!

Dec 28th had dinner with friends, what a wonderful impression. The food was excellent, delicious, and fantastic, appetizers, wine selection, entree's. The service was prompt, pace in response to our needs. this place is not for children as a fine dining establishment but my teenagers who are experienced in this thouroughly enjoyed the steaks and pasta. Atmosphere is fine dining but relaxed enough for the traveler. Dietary restrictions were accomodated as we had a vegan with us who ordered asparagus and potatos that was excellent. I had the veal picante - excellent. I previously reviewed this place (May 2012) unfavorably. I now change my opinion on this recent visit. If in Galena you need to try this restaurant before any other for fine dining! We stayed at Farmer's Guest House and recommend that as well - see our review.

Window seat overlooking a winter post card called Main St. Galena, and sitting next to the Chritmas tree. Excellent fillet mignon and scallops with asparagus. The crab cakes drizzled with a mango vinegrette was the best I've had.

I Love FGT! They are the best restaurant in Galena. If you are visiting you must stop and eat here! Nothing will beat the quality of food you receive and the service is always great as well!
