Overall disappointed. Was hoping for a higher quality dinner. Caesar was so dry & tasteless I felt like I was eating plain lettuce. The prosciutto appetizer was dry & lackluster. My main course was just ok. Lobster w/spaghetti & the sauce overpowered the delicate flavor of the lobster. I was really hoping for so much more. Unfortunately nothing special & wouldn't go back.

We were seated as two tables (COVID restrictions). The second table got their food and was asking for their check and our food had not arrived. We waited quite a long time for our food. The server said the food was being plated about 40 minutes after our order but it did not come out until 20 minutes after that. The food did arrive hot but we were so irritated that we weren't really that hungry any more. The manager did come over and comp'd the check but after our food was delivered there was minimal contact with us after that. No offering of dessert, another drink, nothing. We appreciated the comp but it seemed like it was done to just get us out of there. Very disappointed.

The prosciutto San Daniele and the beef and mushroom risotto were both very good. A beef risotto is also somewhat unusual. The texture of the risotto was excellent. The service was very good, and eating "outside" in the virtual Piazza San Marco was very pleasant. My only real complaint was the extremely limited & pedestrian choice of wine by the glass. But I had a very good bottle of red wine for a reasonable price. Not creative, but genuine Italian cuisine well done.

Canaletto manages to take the ordinary and make it extraordinary. We had the risotto nd the home-made pasta w/mushrooms, chicken, and bacon, and both were uniquely delicious. The appetizers of calamari and the caprese were excellent. Our server was on top of things and made sure we were well cared for. We'll be back!

Food and service was exceptional! We sat outside in the”courtyard” area of the restaurant. There was live music which was too loud for conversation. Luckily it was over before too long into our meal. We will be back!

Canaletto is consistently good. The ambiance is delightful, whether inside or "outside" in St. Mark's Square. Because of Covid, there was no musical performances like there are in normal conditions. But, it was still a great visit and the food tasty.

Took my girlfriend there for a nice dinner I guess the waiter over heard us saying how we were looking forward to getting some muscles as an appetizer but they were not on the menu. He then comes up and say that they can do that for us and about 15 minutes later they were at our table it was very nice.

After a suggestion from a friend, we selected Canaletto from among a few restaurants at the Venetian. I booked a reservation and we were treated to a free appetizer (antipasti). We were seated "outside" close to the gondola rides area. The Venetian has the indoor shopping area constructed to give the appearance of being outdoors. The ceiling is painted sky blue with clouds. Indirect lighting coupled with color changes provide for the appearance of various times of day. The artificial immersion fools you into believing that you are actually outside while truly being indoors in a climate controlled environment. Our waiter sounded as if he was from Italy and was polite, pleasant, and prompt. Waters were delivered quickly and our order was taken. Soon thereafter our orders arrived. The entrees were perfect temperature and delicious. The portions left a little to be desired. For the price, I expected to take something home. No such luck, as each plate was licked clean. We were offered dessert, but declined because there was a Gelato stand about 100 feet from where we were seated and it looked amazing. Overall, the food and service were amazing, however, the portion sizes could have been a bit better. Definitely try the chicken breast entree. It was magnificent! The chicken was succulent and juicy. There were two breasts with half of a wing attached. Exquisite!

In the middle of the action at the Venetian; five people in our party we could hold a conversation with no issues.
Everybody liked their food; service was good.
Had to know to ask for wine list; beer list, cocktail list - seemed weird
Regardless great meal and time.
