Gannucci's is a hidden gem in a busy area of West Duluth. The pizza is amazing and nothing like I have had before. The building is old, but bursting with history. It's fun to be among the locals who are likely regulars.

Greeted by a warm welcome from Mark, who seated us promptly in the dining area. This was our second visit to Gannucci's and it WILL NOT be our last. We ordered the same pizza we had on our first visit--the Mediterranean! The thin cracker crust topped with a creamy buttery white sauce and the combination of vegetables under the blanket... More

While Shrimp Alfredo wasn't on the menu, it was a special. It was THE best Alfredo sauce I've ever had. Just the right consistency and the flavor was fabulous. Others at our table had pizza which also got good reviews. For dessert, we tried the cannolis, gelato and sorbet and were not disappointed. They were all excellent. We had decided... More

My husband loved his porketta sandwich. Since I don't really eat meat or dairy, I thought the Tuscan pizza sounded good. Based on its description I didn't expect it to have cheese...but it did. I ate it anyways and it was really good. Loved the crust and the olive blend.

This is a family-run Italian market/restaraunt. We stopped in for dessert and coffee for our anniversary. The service was friendly and seemed just like family. I have a soft spot in my heart and stomach for cannolis. Not a fan of the pre-made, packaged fare you may find in a high end grocery store. What I had here was homemade.... More

Pretty sure Rob and Laura Petrie ate a place like this when they could get a sitter for little Richie. Murals could almost make you believe you're in an Italian village, except then you wouldn't hear Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin on the sound system. Red-and-white checked tablecloths, basic red-sauce lasagna, ravioli, spaghetti and meatballs come with simple mixed salad... More

Visited for the 1st time on a recent trip to Duluth. Like many of the reviewers we went because of the appearance on DINERS, DRIVE INNS and DIVES. My wife and I shared a pizza and Italian Beef sandwich and while both were good neither would warrant a special trip. Certainly nothing we had would justify an appearance on a... More
