Canaletto Ristorant Veneto features authentic Italian food made from scratch inspired by the region of Veneto. Breads from the Il Fornaio bakery along with Il Fornaio extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar begin each meal. Seafood, rotisserie and grilled meats, poultry and game are our specialties. Sliced-at-the-moment salami and fresh oysters from the “Mercato”. Risotto made the traditional Italian way. Housemade and imported pastas, pizzas from an oak wood-burning oven, fresh salads and soups, seasonal antipasti and a wide variety of desserts offer guests a wide selection of foods suitable for any dining occasion.
Our full bar features a selection of Italian and domestic wines, with an emphasis on wines from the “Tre Venezia” area of Italy (Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino-Alto Adige). Extensive prosecco list as well as many grappa, spirits and after dinner drink selections.

Food was good but calamari was disappointed. I ordered it to go, there were just a few calamari in a big container. Disappointed considering calamari costs 19.95. A bit pricey for calamari.

We choose to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary at Caneletto's since we considered the restaurant a nice place to spend this very special day. When I made the reservation, Open Table asked if this was a special occasion, which it was and I noted that it was in fact our anniversary. Upon arrival, as we were seated by the hostess and served by the waiter, there was absolutely NO comment in reference to this special celebration not even a small detail or complimentary dessert which typically a restaurant does as a courtesy for opening a special occasion with the restaurant. We are a bit disappointed with this lack of any comments to us. What was the point of indicating this was our anniversary if it was not acknowledged at all?

We love Canaletto. It’s a little more pricey than some Italian places, but it’s one of the best, worth it!! We love the pastas, chicken, filet, gnocchi. Everything is good, you really can’t go wrong! Our little hot spot after a long day of shopping at fashion island!
