Galena Italian Restaurant

Vintage photoThe inspiration for Vinny Vanucchi’s Italian cuisine was co-owner Deb Coulter’s grandmother, Lucille LaCorte’s cooking. Growing up downstairs from her "Nana Lu" - as she was affectionately called - Deb remembers pots of red sauce simmering in the kitchen, fresh basil growing around the house, and family get-togethers where no one went away hungry.

In honor of her beloved Nana Lu, Deb decided to create a Galena dining experience that would carry on her grandmother's tradition. She spent hours in the kitchen -- doubling, tripling, and even quadrupling the Italian family recipes. Deb relied on her memories of the flavors of each dish she enjoyed while growing up on Taylor Street in Chicago's Little Italy.

Nana Lu never froze any of her dishes and always cooked with fresh ingredients. Deb followed her grandmother's lead and decided Vinny's would do
the same. So whether it's Nana Lu's Meat Lasagna,
Auntie Nancy's Manicotti, or any pasta, dinner or
house specialty, while at this Galena dining gem you
are guaranteed a delicious "Taste of the Old Neighborhood."
