Service was dismal.
Food was bland and just, ok.
Prices have sky rocketed where a plate of pasta is now $38.00.
The noise level from the singers and performers in the piazza was so loud, we were unable to carry on our conversation.

It’s not the dining of yesteryear.

Sit inside for a more relaxed experience, but we Americans are LOUD wherever you sit. A surprisingly nice experience for such a touristed indoor venue. My food was excellent, as was the service.

Great place. You feel like you are eating outside but with the comfort of inside dinning. Good food, service could improve, wine list need some upgrade but deserts are a must. Try the dolce trio.

We chose this restaurant based on the online menu, which showed some interesting vegetarian options. When we got to the restaurant, we found that they did not have the vegetarian dishes that I was interested in, and the prices were higher than the online menu. I ended up getting a gnocchi dish with a cream sauce, which was fine but not particularly exciting. The bread that they provided was also fine but not warm and not super fresh. The apple crepe dessert we ordered was again fine but the apple crepe wasn’t warm, which would have made it better.
That being said, our waitress was nice and attentive, and the “patio” seating was neat. Ultimately, I thought it was “meh”, and there are many other restaurants on the strip so we won’t be back.

Oh my goodness! This was terrible! We have dined at Canaletto in the past and it was good. Boy has it gone downhill. Our waiter was overwhelmed with too many tables. He came and took our drink and appetizer order. This never came. We were ignored. We had to ask for our drinks. He forgot our appetizer. We flagged a bus person down and ask if it was coming. It was finally delivered to our table. Within minutes our entrees arrived. They took it back to the kitchen and waited. When our entrees were delivered they were so bland. No flavor. I took two bites and left the rest. The waiter came to the table at the very end of the meal and asked if I enjoyed the meal. I said no. I didn't even eat it. When the check came there was no accommodation, no apology. The waiter just said that I should have listened to his recommendations. We will never go back to this restaurant.

It is our go to place every time we come to Vegas. We have had large groups and just the two of us. The service is always above and beyond. And who doesn’t like eating in what feels like St Mark’s Square? The food has been consistently good and always hot when served.

New Years Eve dinner for six. Noisy table near entrance. Two orders of Lasagna were burnt (not just crispy but black) and dried out. Two orders of veal scallopini weren’t hot and completely bland and very unappealing presentation.

The only highlights were the bread and a couple of the appetizers, for a $500 dinner it was very poor. No response from management.

Never again!

This has to be the absolute worst restsurant I have ever eaten at. DO NOT EVEN BOTHER! The menu looked great so we tried it. The service was awful, we waited for 40 minutes to get a simple pasta and fish dish. It came ice cold. Couldn’t even eat it, asked for the manager who took a half hour to come over. He said he would take my awful dinner off the bill and didn’t. It was noisy and we couldn’t wait to leave, it was a dump. I was starving and had to go to the marketplace in the lobby of my Hotel to buy snacks worst food, service and just an awful experience. Especially compared to the Wynn Hotel last night that was so good. Venetian Hotel all on all was really not what it used to be either. Tonight is Bellagio which I’m sure will be great!

A nice meal with great authentic-feeling pasta, a good pint of wine to choose from, and nice service. Service, while a little slow felt accommodating. Allowed us to try some wines we weren’t sure of and gave us a few good recommendations. Would definitely come back again and try some more of their great pasta! Not to mention the cheeses for starters.

First time enjoying the hospitality of the Canaletto restaurant. We regularly stay at the Venetian Resort and like to try out a different restaurant each time. We chose our table with a view and experience of St Marks Square with all of its activities. Enjoy!

The food and service were wonderful. We actually came the day before our dinner meeting for a preview and were thrilled with the choice. Possible the best gnocchi I've had. Delicious and fresh taste to the pesto.

Only complaint was the trio playing in St. Marks square. The volume was deafening! We couldn't have a conversation across the table. We all joked later that we all lost our voice shouting over the music.

Food was very good. Everything from the selection of cheeses, the caprese salad to the lobster ravioli and the cannelloni was delicious. Unfortunately the service was SLOW and the waiter was completely checked out of the whole process, it was like he just happened to be there for the meal. Probably will not return.

Canaletto is a nice place, but service on this evening was painful....I had a special occasion and it turned out to be a long time between visits, multiple waiters that made it seem like they were going out of there way to serve us. Not going back!

Sadly, my experience at Canaletto was disappointing. I could swallow paying $30 for 6 lobster ravioli with mediocre sauce, but the fact that they arrived lukewarm, and were sent back TWICE, were microwaved and were still not hot enough, was inexcusable. The server kept apologizing, but that doesn't cut it. At the very least he could have offered us free desserts or a glass of wine. Nothing. I will never go back.
