Dining at Canaletto's is always a treat, easily some of best food that we have eaten! Always warm and vibrant atmosphere, we are fans!
Always a great experience! Great food and service is excellent!
The best Osso Bucco I ever had! Beautiful restaurant although a bit noisier than anticipated as we looked it up under "Romantic" for our 36th anniversary.
Amazing service and amazing food! Would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great restaurant.
Nice restaurant. Mother’s Day lunch. Was in a back room that was okay but not amazing from an ambiance.
Food was very yummy! Service was also very good.
Pizza for App - great
Bolognese was amazing.
Gnocchi was super good.
Lasagna was divine
Our wait person, George, made the entire experience fabulous!!! The food was delicious and we didn't have to wait long. We had the mixed seafood plate to share and every bite was delightful! We'll be back!
Excellent experience. Our waiter George was outstanding.
This is our grandkids favorite pizza. The service was amazing the night we went. I always enjoy the salmon salad.
Great al always
The best of the best Italian restaurant in Newport Beach
Everything was great. Renee the bartender makes the best gin bleu cheese stuffed martinis ever!! Service was excellent and I really enjoyed my birthday dinner. Will keep coming back!
Canaletto's is always consistently great! Wish I lived closer so I could go more often.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere! Loved the swordfish appetizer, pear salad and assorted fish dinner. We'll ve back again!
Our first visit here, and we cannot say enough about how wonderful it all was! Our server was thoughtful, helpful with suggestions, and very efficient without being intrusive. Our food was outstanding! We shared the delightful house made Gnocchi with Bolognese sauce, best we've ever had! Truly mouthwatering...we would go back just for that! On to a special fillet mignon with mushroom sauce, and a lovely plate of mixed grilled fish. Everything was well prepared and delicious! Dessert was crepes filled with apples and served with gelato, the perfect end to a fantastic meal!
Surprisingly good local Italian food especially since the best Italian eateries (in my opinion) are in north-NJ and NYC. Really enjoyed this place and was pleasantly surprised. Service was attentive and fairly casual. I'd go back again and would recommend as either a destination restaurant or when you're shopping at the mall there.
It was Easter and I kept getting emails that reservations were available, so I booked a table at 6:45 for 5. Our server was GREAT but kept asking us to order and then before dinner was over said let me know if you want dessert, because the chef is going to close the kitchen. I understand because the place was pretty empty but when you’re spending $370 for dinner, I think the chef should be a little more patient.
I thought food was just ok for the prices they charge.
Easter and Birthday. Outstanding service and food!
Easter! We had a delicious brunch! But having experienced many Holiday brunches they did not offer anything particularly special ( except a lamb dish) for Easter. Such as a complimentary mimosa, or biscotti or any such thing! Not even a tiny chocolate bunny 😍!
We have been dining at Canaletto since it opened and still love it! The food is amazing (Chef Moises!), the staff is so wonderful (James!), and the atmosphere is beautiful. We enjoy our experience every time.
We have loved Canaletto for several years. The food and service is always excellent.
My family and I had a fantastic experience dining at Canaletto. Food, service and ambiance were all excellent.
By FAR, this was the BEST dining experience we have had in ages. And we dine out often. Everything was amazing; the service (our waiter was so helpful with our menu choices, was engaging but not intrusive, even the gentleman who bused our table was noteworthy) was impeccable, the food was memorable perfection, the ambiance was enjoyable, the hostess listened to our needs and absolutely accommodated them. Every. Single. Aspect. Of the experience was perfection.
The food was delicious and our waiter, Guido, was attentive, professional and soooo nice!! A fabulous dinner was had by all!
Great food and service as usual. The rib-eye could use a little salt, but excellent quality prime beef. The calamari and burrata appetizers were also great, and so is the bread. Looking forward to coming back soon.
Wonderful service. A bit overpriced but it’s Newport.
Always wonderful ❤️
Food, as usual, was very good. Service was unfortunately not up to par and almost unacceptable. We will return because we love the food...and hope that it was just an off night service-wise.
It was a very nice evening with my girlfriend and every aspect exceeded our expectations. The food was tremendous, came quickly, and the service was great!
The food was very good and the waiter was very nice. We had a bottle of Italian Super Tuscan wine which was very good, and a good value. We were given a choice of sitting inside or on the patio alongside the restaurant. We should have chosen inside, because I forgot that people actually bring their dogs to restaurants and the dogs can misbehave. Also, there was a table with 3 young children, and they behaved for 3/4 of the evening, but then toward the end, they were loud and unruly, and the parents weren't keeping them in line like earlier. Also, there was a "girls night out" table that was seated later on near us, and they were loud. Once the food arrived, they settled down. Well, at these prices, I feel like I deserve a sublime atmosphere. I don't want to eat with yapping, wandering dogs and loud children. Not at these prices. That's something I'd expect at a fast food restaurant. Next time, I'll chose to sit inside.
Restaurant always nice but food not our favorite. Taste was bland. Dined here twice and every time our meals were disappointing. Service friendly and good though. Sorry!
The service and food were amazing. Attentive service without being pushy. A great menu choice and the preparation and presentation of the food was spot on. Oso buco was fantastic! Their desserts were amazing, as were their cocktails.
The food was delicious! My friend and I meet here for lunch so we have a quiet place to talk without interruption. Always good! I had the fish special and it was excellent. Service was good too. Thank you!
Best Italian food in the Desert!
Food was okay
I had better Italian foods for the price you charging.
Service was excellent James and Luka very good assets to you
Another great meal at Canaletto. Manager Antonio made sure we were seated right away at a nice table and checked in with us several times to make sure our experience was top-notch.
The servers were wonderful too. Excellent recommendations, our glasses were never empty, dirty dishes removed quickly but they let us enjoy lots of time for catching up. We never felt rushed.
Great energy in the restaurant. They're still doing it right.
i have been dining at Canaletto fo several years and have found the food and service to be always excellent
Excellent as usual.
