Vinny Vanucchi's

201 S. Main St., Galena, IL 61036


Made-from-scratch Italian food featuring many recipes handed down five generations and an outstanding wine selection.

Vinny Vanucchi's 'Little Italy' welcomes you with open arms, like part of the familia. From our made-from-scratch Italian food featuring many recipes handed down five generations to our outstanding wine selection, we'll transport you to an authentic family trattoria complete with checkered tablecloths and imported artifacts and signs.

Located in Galena Illinois, and perched halfway up a charming cobblestone street at the intersection of Washington and Main streets, our Galena restaurant features 4 distinctive dining areas including a Bistro and an outdoor Cappuccino Garden. You’ll find Vinny’s ambiance is at once both casual and elegant.

We invite you to join us at Vinny Vanucchis 'Little Italy' for authentic Italian dishes and a "Taste of the Old Neighborhood."
