We invite you to join us at Vinny Vanucchis ‘Little Italy’ for authentic Italian dishes and a “Taste of the Old Neighborhood.”
Galena is nestled in the rolling hills of northwest Illinois. It became a bustling town in the early 1800s with the discovery of lead (“Galena” is Latin for lead sulfide), and mining became its first industry. Situated on the Galena River, just a short distance from the Mississippi River, Galena was the largest port between St. Louis, Missouri and St. Paul, Minnesota by the mid-1880s.
More than 85 percent of the town is on the National Register of Historic Places. Many of the buildings along Main Street were here when Ulysses S. Grant, the 18th president of the United States, lived in Galena. It’s a charming and authentic portrait of American history. Today, Galena is a top destination in Illinois and the Midwest.
A charming riverside destination full of history!
