A Taste of the Old Neighborhood

Dubuque, Iowa: 563-588-9600

Everything you love about the original Vinny Vanucchi's 'Little Italy' in Galena, Illinois, is now available at our newest location at 180 Main Street in Dubuque, Iowa.

The moment you step into our Dubuque Iowa restaurant, you'll swear Nana Lu is hard at work in our kitchen. You'll smell the slow-cooking marinara sauce and immediately feel like you are at a gathering of the familia.

We're excited to share our Dubuque location with you and your family and friends. From checkered tablecloths and exposed brick to generations of family photographs and an Italian grocery and deli, our Dubuque restaurant is a fresh, exciting addition to Dubuque's dining scene.
