The food was fresh, hot and delicious, just like momma makes it! Service was prompt, environment was warm and comfortable and a great setting to have a great meal. While music was being played in the piazza, we sang along.
We were married earlier in the day and researched every menu in the top hotels and Canaletto had something for everyone in our small group of four. Two had the Gnocchi, one pesto and one bolognese. Looked more like tortellini and the pasta was well filled. One had a Caesar salad which was a full plate, well chilled and fresh. I had the pasta tubes bolognese which was top quality from the al dente texture to flavor. Portions were just the right amount to satisfy and not bloat. Room for dessert! We had lemon sorbet which was a bit tart but refreshing and tiramisu which was abundant and perfect. We will refer friends and return for our first anniversary for sure. Well done!

The wait staff overall looked a bit slovenly. They either need new jacket and better fitting shirt collars/ties or perhaps switch to a new outfit. Aside from that the food was very good and we will be back

Canaletto was wonderful. Their staff and especially Omar the waiter was instrumental in helping me surprise my family at lunch. I had flown from NYC for the day to surprise them at lunch I had set up. They were so thoughtful in setting them up at a table that had the best views of the music and dancing performances. The food, wine and hospitality was top notch. Everything was delicious and we sent back empty plates. Grazie Canaletto!

La nourriture était délicieuse et le service très efficace. Nous avons mangé à l’extérieur. C’était bruyant mais ça fait parti de l’expérience!!! L’extérieur recrée la Place St-Marc en Italie. C’était très bien!!! Pour nous c’est un incontournable quand on vient à Las Vegas!!!

We had the most wonderful waiter! She was friendly and eager to please in every way. Every aspect of our meal was spectacular, from the appetizers to dessert, first class all the way. Deliziosa!! We will definitely visit again for more authentic Italian cuisine. Thank you for making our 30th wedding anniversary so special!

We have been at this restaurant many times before but this time it was awful. It took them 20 minutes before we even see a server at our table , we finally asked for one. Food was ordered wrong because different servers and each of them blame each other for. Overall a disasters , we’ll never go back.

The food was great, but what made the difference was the waiter and his willingness to connect with us on a personal level. He told a few stories about what happens when his family gets together to eat and we could tell that it was important to him that we had a good experience at his restaurant.

A group of us brought a friend to Vegas for his birthday and wanted to give him some truly only-in-Las-Vegas experiences. Eating at Canaletto "outdoors" by the faux-canal with classy, live music filling the room and just the right amount of cheesy mixed with classy...it was a lovely dinner and felt like something unique to the city. The service was friendly and funny and the right amount of attentive. The food was very good but not mind-blowing. It's my second time eating there and I'm sure I'll go back.

Thank you for offering the Travelzoo meal. We stopped in on our recent trip to Las Vegas and were treated to a wonderful meal at Canaletto. We were seated outside in the square. The wine was excellent as was the first course of pear salad and buratta cheese with black truffles and garlic toast. Main courses of salmon and filet of Mediterranean sea bass were outstanding as well with the sea bass skin being nice and crispy. Desert of cannoli's and coffee were a perfect ending to a great meal. Highly recommend visiting Canaletto's on your next trip to LV.

This restaurant is inside The Venetian in Las Vegas. The ambience is like your eating on an outside patio within St. Mark’s Square, Italy. Great food and great service. It’s expensive but worthwhile for a unique experience.

I have been to Canaletto’s at least 8-10 times and this was the worst service we have ever had. Waited for water and had to ask, the waiter seemed like he could not get done with us fast enough each time he came to the table. No one else came around with anything or to refill water. Just overall seemed like it was chore for him to serve us. Very disappointing.

I have been to Canaletto many times, never had a bad experience until now. On the evening we were dined, there was a problem in the kitchens at the Venetian forcing a gas shut off after we ordered. My dining partner received her veal entree, but unfortunately my pasta entree was not ready. I was offered soup or salad, settled for a cold prosciutto platter. It was very good but not what I really wanted. With 20 minutes, the kitchen was operational again, but I was never offered my original entree. While I realize the kitchen shutdown was not the restaurant's fault, our server never offered to reorder my entree (I could have taken it home!) , and never offered to comp my "appetizer/entree" or offer a free dessert or extra glass of wine. I have been to Canaletto many times with my out of town guests, including booking their private dining rooms, and I was extremely disappointed at the server's uncaring attitude. Sadly, I probably will not return.

We were celebrating a birthday at Canaletto. Beautiful setting in the shops and A performing stage is across the way... so if you are on the patio it can get a little noisy but not we weren’t shouting trying to hear each other, and I’m sure if you were inside it would be quieter.
Our waitress was amazing. Very attentive and helpful with the menu making sure we had everything we needed for our meal. At one point the table next to us was live Facebooking everything, not just for a few minutes but for 10-15. She would put the camera on us and made it very unsettling and just frankly rude. I don’t have Facebook for a reason and I don’t want to be on a strangers live stream. I asked our waitress if a manager would be able to have her stop so we can enjoy our meal and time together in peace. She immediately took action and had her put the phone down, I don’t think she even got the manage.
When we go back to Vegas we will be returning. The food was amazing!!!!!!!!!! And the service impeccable!!!!!!!
