Had a great dinner meal at Canaletto. Got seated at the reserved time and all went very smoothly. Waitress and all wait staff were excellent. Food was delicious, drinks were plentiful, and would recommend this restaurant to any that wanted some creative Italian Cuisine.

Delicious italian classics served in a relaxed but elegant atmosphere. The tables on the patio are in a recreated Venetian piazza that give the impression of outdoor dining at twilight. The food was prepared and presented with culinary skill and artistry.

The food we ordered was delicious. The service was slow and not consistent. We weren’t asked how our food was or if we wanted fresh shredded cheese. Our drinks were left low too. We would recommend to friends based on the kitchen and how great the food was, but the service needs help to earn more stars from me.

This was a fabulous restaurant. There was an opera singer performing as well, was amazing! Everyone had good food and wine. Only negative was the lobster pasta, it was fabulous, but we asked and were led to believe it was just the meat and no shells to deal with. Not the case. Had to get messy to eat it. Otherwise, 5 stars. Will go again.

I am a Celiac and so I don't eat gluten, and have multiple food allergies to dairy, corn and soy so I have to plan my meals ahead of time. We booked a reservation here as our last meal in Las Vegas. It is great to people watch as it's in the Venetian's St. Mark's Square. There is a live show that goes on right in the square so that' s fun while you are eating also. We let the server know of my multiple allergies and I have to say it was the best meal I had in the 6 days were in LV. I had a rib-eye steak with organic spinach, carrots, green and potatoes cooked in olive oil while my family got to enjoy traditional Italian menu options. I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who wants a spectacular meal in a fun atmosphere but especially for those who have multiple food allergies.

We were staying at the Venetian and this restaurant was recommended. The service was great but the food was "just okay." The description of the dishes from the waiter made your mouth water, but what was delivered was not good. I ordered a Cannelloni Special "stuffed with chicken"... I could barely see the chicken inside. It was edible. My friend ordered a Dish with Shrimp and pasta. She couldn't even eat it. But she didn't want to say anything. We should have known not to order seafood in the dessert. The atmosphere in St. Mark's Square was beautiful. I guess that is what you pay for...not the food.
It was a disappointment and it was very expensive. I am a foodie :-)

It’s fun eating in St Mark’s square where the atmosphere is upbeat and lively. Our server was very friendly. However, compared to some of the other meals I’ve had in Vegas, the food fell a little flat. The minestrone soup was delicious as was the chocolate gelato but the pizza wasn’t as stellar as expected. The crust seemed to have potential and was nice and thin but came out too soft and even a little soggy in the center. Maybe it just needed to be cooked a little more but I was hoping for a little more consistent crisp to the crust.

I ordered the ribeye medium-rare. Although it came out over cooked it was very tender and delicious! My husbands risotto was tasty but the rice wasn’t cooked enough. Our friends seemed to enjoy their spegetti over a whole lobster and branzino.
The table next to us ordered pizzas and they looked great!
Above all, If your looking for a beautiful dining experience while in Vegas, this place had what we were looking for. We asked to be seated in the patio area of the Venetian Shops “town square” and it was awesome! We really felt like we’re were dining outdoors in Italy!
Our server was super friendly and attentive.
We will definitely go back!

I recommend starting your meal with the Insalata di Pere. It's unique texture and varied ingredients are a welcome departure from typical Italian starter salads like Caesar and house salads with heavy vinaigrettes. I took my server's recommendation and had the Filleto di Branzino alla Greca (picture attached). The portion size was great for lunch, and the sauce was perfect for dressing the roasted potatoes that accompany the dish. My server was very gracious, had good recommendations, and made me feel relaxed with the speed I consumed my meal.

Try getting your lunch reservation for after 12:30 or so. I went at 11:30 and was literally the first person there, so there was not much people watching to be had. There is a live opera show daily performed across the canal that's easily heard at the restaurant, and it's a nice bonus that adds to the ambiance of Canaletto's Italian experience.

I'm in my eighteenth year of dining in Canaletto's, this is a romantic and magical place for me. Each time I dine, I remember why I love Canaletto's so much. Every guest I have invited to join me here has enjoyed the Canaletto experience. This is a beautiful choice of restaurants within the Las Vegas metropolitan area. The quality of the food is the best, the service is impeccable and the live music in the courtyard sets the tone for a memorable dining experience. It's obvious to me each time I visit that many other people must feel the same way, as the business inside the Canaletto restaurant is always busy. Here's to another eighteen years of dining excellence. Bon appetite!

I made a reservation for 5 at 7:30 pm but arrived at the Venetian early to wander around and look at all of the beautiful architecture and sites it has to offer. By 7 pm,bae were famished and ready to eat so dropped by the restaurant to see if it could accommodate us early. The staff made some adjustments with the tables and squeezed us in. The menu was fabulous, even provided gluten-free pasta for my Celiac spouse. And the Tiramisu was authentic, such a refreshing change from the Tiramisus that restaurants try to whip up. Will definitely be back next year.❤️❤️
