Guests are welcomed with open arms at Procento’s Pizzeria. Jack Edens, owner of Procento’s, has a long and
successful history of making fine food and for making people feel welcome.
In the 1970’s Jack started in the restaurant business in Mundelein, IL where he owned a 10,000 square foot
restaurant, Pope’s Garden of Eden, named after both his father and step-father. There he was known for his Steak,
Lobster and American fare. In the 1980’s Jack decided to down size and opened Double D Pizza in Waukegan, IL
where he perfected his famous double–decker pizza with homemade crust, made from scratch, and his signature pizza sauce.
In 2001, Jack and his wife, Tammy, visited Galena on a 3 day vacation and came home to tell their boys they were moving. They
knew that Galena would be the perfect place to raise their two boys, Ryan and Jack Jr.
In 2006 Jack opened Procento’s Pizzeria, a family owned and operated restaurant. Jack brought his famous double–decker
pizza to Galena where everything is made from scratch using only the freshest ingredients. Enjoy over 50 varieties of
pizza and don’t forget the daily specials: pastas, Chicken Parmesan, homemade Lasagna with pounds of ricotta cheese in every
pan. Try Jack’s Fettuccini Alfredo where the sauce is made with real whipping cream and Romano cheese. End the
dining experience with Galena’s own homemade cheesecake or perhaps try a hand stuffed cannoli dipped in pasticcio nuts or
Locals and tourists gather at Procento’s Pizzeria for the friendly atmosphere, wonderful food and especially for Jack—always
with a smile on his face and eyes twinkling, thinking about the next wonderful story he’s going to tell.
