We went to the Vinny's in Galena previously and remembered it fondly. This location didn't match up with our memories. The cheesy garlic bread in particular was disappointing. And it is very noisy.

Well, you told me they called you Vinny V. and they apologized for the service. They called me back. I spoke to a very nice lady. We will give it another try, as we enjoyed it the first time sooo much. Thanks. Usually great service.
