It was her birthday. We parked on the street above and had a short walk to the property, it was down some street stairs. The waitress asked if we wanted the patio and we took it. It was a monday about noon and we had the outdoor patio to our selves. The tourist had had the place on the weekend.... More

Fun atmosphere. Good salad and bread come with the meal. We had an appetizer, drinks and meals. All were very good and our server was friendly.

Sitting in the sun soaked April day, sipping a glass of icy white wine, and eating seafood fettuccine on the terrace of Vinny's, made for a memorable April afternoon. The wait person, Jessica, was attentive without being interruptive, and my companion and I promised to return on our next holiday in Galena. Jeania murphy

Vinnys has amazing Italian food! When we went, we had awesome service and the food was outstanding! My boyfriend and I went on a Saturday night after the magic show and got in right away. A must when visiting Galena!

Ordered take out with a group. Everyone was happy with their meal. Portions were decent sized. Salad and garlic bread came with all meals. All in all great place for food.

This was a great Italian restaurant with a lot of character and great service! The starter salad was very good, but the garlic bread was great! Our pasta dishes were terrific and we loved the cheesecake for dessert. Our server, Michael, was very friendly and attentive, and the manager visited each table to ensure satisfaction! Outstanding!

Parked on Main Street. Surprised to find TWO flights of stairs. Then turned left to ANOTHER flight of stairs. Wasn't clear if we were to enter after second flight or follow the sign and climb the 3rd flight. Got a feeling it wasn't going to be a good experience, so we left.

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious supper at Vinny Vanucchis. We both ordered the seafood fettuccine, which was full of great seafood. The service and atmosphere were great. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.
