My friend took me here bragging about their garlic bread. But then she was disappointed it wasn’t hot and fresh. The food was good. Service as expected. The building is really nice. Great atmosphere!

Save your money and go to Olive Garden. Hit this place up afterwards for coffee and tiramisu. Ambiance was cool and service was friendly, but food was really disappointing. I had the nights special - manicotti. It was bland - average at best. We also...More

Was craving Italian beef, and coming from Phoenix we have Portillo’s here thankfully. Finally found a place and went with my boss. Love this place. Sandwich was solid, little pricey but enjoyed the meal and the place.

My wife and i happened to be on the Dubuque side for dinner and we stopped at Vinny's. We have eaten here before and it's always a great meal. Stop by if you are looking for some great Italian food.

The food was superb, the atmosphere was comfortable, and the service was top notch. Our server, David, really did a great job. We couldn't have asked for more and are looking forward to our next visit.

If you like the Galena location, this one is similar with equal quality. The one difference is that this one has Pizza. We enjoyed the egg plant and lasagna
