From the moment you enter Vinny Vanucchi’s ‘Little Italy’ in Galena, IL, we’ll welcome you with open arms and make you feel like part of the familia. Perched halfway up a cobblestone street, Vinny’s charming Galena location is complete with an Old World Deli and Import Store, artifacts, signs and vintage family portraits, and four distinctive dining areas. Each dining room has the feel of an authentic trattoria with native wood, Galena brick and checkered tablecloths.

You’ll find Vinny’s ambiance is, at once, both casual and elegant.

Great food in a nice setting and the garlic bread is to die for!The only downfalls were service was a little slow and it was FREEZING upstairs where we were sitting. Overall, a nice experience and we would try it again!

The bruschetta and the lasagna were both phenomenal. The restaurant had a nice view looking outside. The hosts were attentive and friendly when we walked in the restaurant.

When ever I am in Galena for the weekend I tend to make a reservation at Vinny Vanucci's. Its a nice/unique atmosphere, good food and not overly expensive. Its just a quaint little restaurant in a quaint little town.

Excellent food and atmosphere. Vinny's has a huge selection to choose from and all of the food options are fantastic. Service was very good. Was able to get right in and did not wait for our table.

We had dinner on New Years Eve and it was disappointing. The waiter was difficult to track down, our salad was frozen and we had to send the steak back because it was very undercooked. My husband commented that his sausage ragu was no better than something we could make at home and the sauce was watery. Will not return and do not recommend.
