Four of us dined here mid June. When we walked in the restaurant looked crowded, but then the host took us upstairs where there is a lot more seating and a nice atmosphere. Our waitress was very attentive and efficient. We each ordered something different off the menu and all the dinners were excellent. I ordered the pork prime rib with a berry/bourbon sauce that was the best sauce I've had. We were celebrating a birthday and an anniversary so free desserts to share. We would definitely go back to this restaurant.

My wife and I had dinner here this past Friday. My wife said the lasagna was the best she has ever had. My filet and lobster special was also very good. Atmosphere, service and food were all perfect. Side of fresh loaf of bread with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on was also nice touch. Waitress was very timely with all portions of our meal. Glad we choose this place for dinner. Kudos to all staff here.

After a couples hours of shopping on a nice Saturday, we looked forward to lunch. First and foremost, let me say the service is phenomenal; friendly, helpful, efficient with even extra crumb clean-up to maintain a nice linen cloth appearance as empty plates were being removed. We shared two appetizers and two entrees. The Fried Green Tomatoes were outstanding with a little crisp around the edges and non-greasy. Very tasty. The 1lb of mussels were good as well, although there seemed to be a few more open shells than actual mussels. The juice with cooked cherry tomatoes and cheese slices was terrific. The entrees were unique. The lasagna was prepared in a different manner than is the norm. A bit thinner with mildly spicy sausage topped with pasta and mozzarella. This red sauce tasted very different from the marinara on the fried green tomatoes and didn’t overwhelm the lasagna as can often be the case. The shrimp/lobster flatbread was unique. The flatbread itself was thin but not cracker crisp although not soft either. The topping had a little sweetness. The shrimp/lobster, arugula, onion and tomato topping was very delicate and blended together well. Lastly, the freshly cooked bread with basil-infused olive oil was wonderful. Although a bit pricier than a number of other places in Galena, it’s worth it if a special meal with excellent food is what you’re looking for.

Best dining in Galena! Great wine selection. Friendly and professional staff cater to make your dining experience excellent. Whether you stop in for a cocktail at the bar with Marko your bartender, or sitting down to a fabulous steak, seafood or pasta dish your sure to have a wonderful evening. A favorite is chicken masala.
