It turns out Freeport has a little romantic gem in our midst too and according to a recent article by, our own Cannova’s restaurant was chosen as the number one romantic restaurant in the entire state of Illinois.

Yeah, that’s right. Right here in Freeport.

No, the question is not whether to come to Freeport, the question is when to come.
