Vinny Vanucchi's 'Little Italy' - Galena
Pasta Ala Vinny
Linguine Pasta in our Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic and Hot Sauce tossed with Shrimp, Scallops and Real Crabmeat
Fettuccine Pasta in a rich Cream Sauce with Shrimp, Scallops and Crabmeat.
Our service was great, but it didn’t make up for the food. The eggplant Parmesan tasted like paste, everyone (7 of us) was very disappointed in the food. I won’t be back.
Our service was good however our food was not. We were a group of seven. We felt the eggplant special was tasteless and oily. The lasagna was good but the other meals were mediocre. The dinners were too pricy for what we got. This experience was not good but we will try it again in the future. Maybe due to covid they were having an off night.
The food was good, however one of the meals was incorrect from what was ordered and the waiter didn't seem to want to correct it. We were able to get in corrected close to what was ordered. We had 6 people in our party and it would have been nice for them to bring out two salads as we had to share one for all six people, so we all had a very small salad. The atmosphere was lovely and the noise level was quiet, we sat outside and enjoyed a lovely evening.
Wanted a short getaway for my husband's birthday, but wanted to do it as safely as possible. Made a reservation at Vinny's and they were wonderful. We had a table in a little nook by a window. My husband even got a couple of "Happy Birthday" wishes from your staff. Everything was delicious and perfectly timed. We never felt rushed. We've been to Vinny's before and have always had a good experience.
The food was excellent and the service was also excellent
Wonderful menu. Garlic bread with your dinner was an added plus. We will be back
Manicotti was second best I ever had. Nobody will beat my Aunt's recipe this was very close. Great food
Overall good experience. The food was excellent!! Would eat here again.
Great food and great service!
Wonderful food in a great atmosphere! We had reservations for 4 and our waitress was very helpful picking out a great bottle of wine to go with our food. The food was delicious but it is slightly pricey. It was a wonderful way to end our day in Galena. I would highly recommend this place if you are looking for good, authentic Italian food.
Have always enjoyed visiting Vinny's. Most everything was fine, but my entree, which was a special, wasn't very good. It was eggplant parm, which should be standard, but this wasn't cooked well. The coating was soggy, it wasn't hot, and there really was hardly any marinara on it and no sauce at all on the pasta. I really suspect it was frozen and reheated. Definitely not worth the cost.
Salad was great, service was wonderful, glad for the efforts to keep up safe and distanced, but disappointed in the parm!
Food was good, service good, covid spacing was a little unnerving coming from a perspective that takes distance and mask wearing seriously. Staff was good but other patrons and table spacing a little tight for my comfort.
Always great food and atmosphere. Highly recommend to anyone visiting the area.
A very busy place with good food and excellent service.
Server was triple seated so she had a hard time getting caught up the 1 hr and 45 min we were dining. She came back 1 time to check on us once we got our food and asked we asked for more water, salad plates, marinara because the chicken parm was dry and not hot. Half way into dinner until we had no drinks, no salad plates and no marinara. Manager never came in area to check on tables. When she finally came back we asked for check and 2 containers to go. 1 for chicken parm and other for salad. She brought 1 container still with no marinara. After asking for 3rd time for sauce and another container gave up on plates and drinks because clearly dinner was over. Unfortunately would not come back to this restaurant. On way out never saw any manager. Knowing restaurants are seating at half capacity as they normally would I can’t imagine how bad service would be at full capacity.
Went with my daughter for a mother daughter weekend. I was so sad about the experience - because 15 years ago - it was so great. The waitress seemed like she just wanted to get us out of there. Felt like fast food Italian. I wouldn’t go again.
The food was authentic, hot, large portions and Delicious :)
Hands down the best wait staff and food around! Couldn’t ask for a better place to eat!
We truly enjoyed to the food, first of all. Everything that we ordered, from the appetizers to the main courses and drinks, were all very good. My husband really enjoyed his steak (and he's pretty picky!) However, the noise level was a little more than what we wanted to tolerate for a romantic meal celebrating our 10th anniversary. Despite our requests, we were seated next to a table with a large, boisterous party. In other words, if this is just a casual, fun gathering, then it would be great. If you're looking more for a dinner for a special occasion, however, I would try some place else.
Distancing precautions were good; we were inside, & tables were spaced.
Food was good, but not outstanding. My husband had Fettuccine Mecelli & I had Penne & Meatballs.Prices are on the high side for what you get, but at least bread & salad are included. We have eaten here every time we have gone to Galena & think the quality has gone down a little. Server was very nice but was covering a large & wine we ordered with dinner was late coming.
We very much enjoyed our dinner. Will definitely come back with next visit!
This was going to be our Anniversary dinner. We got there and seated right away, and had a nice table. We than waited about 15 minutes before I waved someone down to ask to send a server. She than took our order for drinks and that was ok. Came back took food order, brought out salad and bread which was very good. Our food than came my order was correct and my husband had ordered stuff shells with marina sauce but she brought spa and meatballs. Ok no biggie just bring correct one back and 15 minutes later she brings shells with Alfredo sauce and we said no wanted marinara! She than said something about frozen and no more , really not even sure what she was mumbling. Than she took my husbands meal and gave it to another table of women who’s food was there waiting to be served! Yes you heard it she took my husbands plate from in front of him and gave it to a girl at tab,e behind us. Asked for general manger and basically said so sorry and really couldn’t be bothered. In this world right now the restaurant business needs to care more about customers because they are already hurting. Will never return here.
Great food, atmosphere, and service. Would recommend a reservation.
It was a great dinner outside. Food was amazing and staff was very sweet and very careful to follow COViD rules.
Will go again.
Food great. Service great. Accommodations great. Prices were reasonable.
Server brought the wrong dish twice to one diner, failed to follow through on requests for Parmesan and water, substitutes a wine with an “upgrade” wine. In general, giving slow and frustrating and the food is only passable.
We had a great meal served by an attentive waiter. The food was scrumptious. Highly revommended.
Amazing as always! Amazing as always!
Amazing as always!
One of my favorite restaurants in Galena. We always stop for an Italian meal at Vinnys when we're in Galena, Il. , even though we live in Orlando now.
Our server TJ was awesome. Friendly, professional and checked in on us to be sure everything was to our liking.
I felt slightly ignored by waitstaff. Food was good, but not as good as it usually is. I made sure to put in the reservation that there was a birthday, but the waitress didn’t even mention it.
Very disappointing birthday dinner
Excellent meal....plenty of left overs. Good restaurant.
Food was great, but the waitress had too many tables she was trying to cover and they were on different levels of the restaurant. Once our food was delivered we didn't see her again for over 30 minutes.
Food was fantastic as always and love the ambiance.
My wife and I Celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary 9/14/2020 and everything was Perfect I could not have been more impressed. Will be back as soon as possible actually we almost went back the next day for lunch but it was closed
Wish our server came back to check on us more often.
The seafood alfredo was creamy, but lacked depth. Perhaps a bit of pepper or romano cheese.
Thought our dinner came with bread and salad, but we did not receive any.
The food was very good especially the garlic bread!
I had high hopes for this place after reviewing the menu. The overall experience was disappointing.
First thing as soon as we walked in the place was very warm, even the staff said it was. It started off uncomfortable. We ordered appetizers; toasted ravioli and fried calamari. I asked if the calamari was a mix of tubes and little guys with the legs, whe didnt know. We get the appetizers and the calamari is over cooked. The toasted ravioli had jalapenos in them, weird, nothing about that on the menu. I would later hear another table ask what was in them and their server said just cheese...servers need to learn their menu.
Our entrees consisted of veal marsala and fettuccine alfredo with chicken
The veal marsala was not worth eating
I took two bites and decided I wouldn't eat anymore. The veal was rubbery and chewy. The whole dish was drowned in sauce. Now the chicken alfredo was slightly better than the marsala, but still bad. The chicken appeared to be the Tyson preseason frozen chicken. It had the same type of grill marks and tasted identical to it. At the price of $21.95, I would expect a fresh chicken breast sliced and placed on top of the dish.
We spent a little over $100 with drinks, and most of it was not eaten. The only highlight was the fresh garlic bread!
Always great food. During this Covid experience they have made the dining experience wonderful and within Covid dining guidelines. Great job.
Server did not understand us. Very difficult communicating. Chicken Marsala chicken was not tender. Loud scraping noises in the room next to us during our meal.
