It's a poor replica of Galena's Vinny Vanucchi's restaurant. While the Italian décor is similar, the service and quality of food is not. When we first arrived, the host looked inconvenienced by our presence. He quickly seated us to a terrible location within the restaurant, despite the restaurant not being busy and our request. Our server appeared very lazy and unmotivated...equally inconvenienced by our presence. He did not check up on us or refill our drinks until we hunted him down (standing and chatting with other employees). When asked if we could get refills on our drinks, he looked at us like we were asking him to part the Red Sea!
The food was horrible! The salad was limp and the bread was greasy with butter. It took forever for our main course to come out (remember - the restaurant was not busy) - and when we got it...it was barely warm (as if it had been sitting in the kitchen). We both felt sick after eating our meals. We couldn't even finish our meals because of the excess salt in the dishes, and they quickly became cold because we didn't receive them at a proper temperature. Between swatting at all the flies that were in the restaurant and experiencing such poor customer service, we will NEVER go to this restaurant again! They should never have tried to duplicate the wonderful restaurant in Galena!
