Diner Reviews
  • "Though we had a reservation, we have been told to come back in 30-45 minutes!!!, and then when we checked back , few times, finally after one hour, we were asked to go to the bar , and wait for another 20 minutes or so. I asked to talk with the manager, who did nothing, not even offering a free drink at the bar. Poorly organized, and unfriendly hosting staff. Would not recommend to go there at all."

  • "We have enjoyed this restaurant on many occassions. This will be our last visit. We arrived to a being recieved by a hotess who should work in the back room of a super marker. We requested a certain type of table and without looking up she advised us they were all reserved. I mentioned we also had a reservation. No response just sent us on our way. We eventually moved with the help of the manager. The meal was well served by our waitress however she was handicapped by the quality of what came out of the kitchen. Not sure what's going on but managerment needs to find out and fast."

  • "This place is in the "outdoor" Saint Mark's Square of the Venetian ( they have indoor tables), and it's not at all noisy or people intrusive. Food was awesome. Pasta is great. Go to an Italian restaurant order pasta, and this one did not disappoint at all. This was our second time at Canaletto and there will be a third when we go back to Vegas."

  • "The food was very good! Our waiter was very nice and had a great personality! We had a nice bottle of wine with dinner based on his suggestion of Italian wines which I am not familiar with. We are from the wine country in CA so we know our wines! He did a good job suggesting a bottle of us. The inside dining room is nice but nothing to knock your socks off. If you sit on the patio just beware it has a lot of tables close by one another. But good for people watching if you want that. Inside where we were, there were people around us in shorts whereas we were dressed up. Guess I should have looked into it a bit more for proper attire. But, really this is great place to eat!! Enjoy you won't be disappointed!!"

  • "Canaletto was a wonderful restaurant! We had great service first at the bar from Wendy and then we had an excellent server, James for dinner. The food was outstanding and the wine and sangria were very refreshing. The service was prompt and our waiter was friendly. I will definitely recommend Canaletto to our friends."

  • "J'avais réservé ce restaurant pour notre repas de mariage. Le cadre est vraiment très bien, et le repas a été parfait. Je le recommande à tous, que ce soit pour un mariage à 2 comme nous, pour un mariage avec des invités ou bien pour un repas sans occasion particulière. Vraiment génial."

  • "Canaletto helped accomplished a tremendous evening with my girlfriend. The waiters and servers were very hospitable and carried the ambiance to perfection, especially for the gondola ride that ensued! The assortment of breads was a welcoming introduction and the entrees didn't disappoint as well. Definitely will return in the future!"

  • "Traditional Italian food at good prices for being in the heart of activity at the Venetian in Las Vegas. The cured meat appetizer was delicious but thin slices for $15. The pasta servings were generous and service was attentive. I would recommend if you are looking for traditional pasta dishes and a lively atmosphere. Gelato dessert was also good."

  • "The inside of Canaletto is beautiful but they didn't ask and sat us outside in a mass of humanity on the noisy patio. If you go there be sure to insist on the inside."

  • "Friendly service. A great way to have Alfresco dinning without the elements interfering. A menu showing many selections. Plus an enactment of Italian street entertainment."

  • "Ordered Red Snapper special. Literally could not cut through with fork or knife; half cooked but also just a very bad, fatty type section of fish. NEVER send anything back but this was inedible. Offered salmon instead, but took over half an hour and we had all eaten and they had even cleared our table it had been so long. Obviously no communication among staff. Looked for mgr young guy in suit running around checking his phone not interacting/aware of guests later identified as such. Salmon arrived as we had credit card out to pay /exit- just all off. Salmon fair at best - had a few bites.They could see that, said nothing, presented bill w the $27 salmon on it. I paid/asked for mgr on way out and politely explained but minimal response."

  • "We took some out of town guests there for lunch. The service was attentive but not intrusive, the food was delicious and the ambience wonderful. We sat in the outside patio area and were able to see the entertainers do their singing act for part of our meal, it was very enjoyable. We've had dinner there in the past and loved it. We will certainly be going back again soon. Not an inexpensive place for lunch, but well worth it for the experience and the food."

  • "I dined alone and sat "outside" on a Thursday evening. Outside is actually the courtyard with cloud painted ceilings and surroundings to simulate sitting outside on St. Mark's square in Italy. It was very nice and they had live music playing. The food and service were outstanding as well."

  • "The food was excellent. The service was a little slower at times, but we had a large party of 9 with children. They were accommodating with making a dish my 10 yr old son would like. Very nice restaurant with great ambiance."

  • "The Italian food was fantastic and the presentation was exquisite. The dishes had special touches that made them different from what is usually seen. We were very pleased with the service, food, and atmosphere."

  • "This was my 3rd or 4th visit there. The staff was great as our party size grew suddenly and they were always there making sure our party was taken care of throughout the meal. Many of the party raved about the food and my veal was perfectly cooked. for the first time I sat outside and that was OK. I prefer the inside dining space and will ask for it next time. I need to do business and find the sound level better in there."

  • "We arrived a few minutes late but were seated immediately. The waiter was very friendly, answered all Of our questions and made suggestions for courses and wines. Salads were fresh, crisp, cold and Dressings were creamy and tangy. Main courses arrived on time and hot. The pasta special (w/prawns, and scallops) was delicious. The wife had cannelloni stuffed w/mazzorella and chicken came w/ both marinara and cream sauces baked to perfection. Waiters were attentive and extremely knowledgable. Prices were much lower than I expected. We would go back again without hesitation."

  • "Service was a little slow but nothing really much to complain about. Unfortunately when we were there there was a circus type deal going on in the Palazzo which was really loud. Once that was over the noise level was just fine. I ordered the special, yellowfin tuna, but it was served cold and when I send it back they brought that back the same cold piece of fish. I had to wonder if there was a chef in the kitchen because certainly a chef would not send back the same cold piece of fish to a customer My has been ordered the Bolognese, which I highly recommend, it was fabulous flavorful and generous portion. Do sit outside on the Palazzo. It's a little bit Disneyland-ish but still quite enjoyable"

  • "I've been to Canaletto 4 or 5 times in the past and it always delivers great food with a great setting of the St Marks plaza in Venice. The servers are attentive, though rather slow sometimes (but who wants to hurry up and leave when sitting down in St Marks?). Our food was excellent, and the wine selection is great. My only complaint is that I was looking forward to ordering the salt-crusted sea bass and they ahd already ran out of it."

  • "We were a party of 4 couples who get together every year in Vegas. We choose this restaurant because it was in the same hotel where the show we were going to see was at. It was perfect! The location, ambiance and food was all great. We all had a wonderful time and didn't have to walk far to the show."
