Service, food and atmosphere were excellent.
One of the best Italian restaurants in OC.
We had a fabulous 3 course lunch with amazing service.
Thanksgiving menu with limited options. Did not love our entrees.
Prix Fixe Thanksgiving menu:
Entree: 4 EXCEPT the TURKEY was PROCESSED, not a fresh cooked and carved bird.
Conclusion: If the bird was fresh, it would have been a 5-star meal.
Thanksgiving dinner with family 2019 was perfect! I hesitate to use such a word, however after much debate the food and service was truly perfect.
We dined on traditional fare and also ordered several other dishes to enjoy. The seafood was awesome and included all our favorites!
I want to commend the waitstaff for not only all service points but also for the exploration of the wine list which resulted in a perfect pairing between palette and cellar.
Amazing and many thanks from a single dad!
I love this place! Not only is the food delicious but the entire staff makes you feel like part of their family... even during the holidays!! It’s festive and a wonderful environment!!!
A place to grab a bite after hours of shopping. The fresh pasta was nice and the gluten free pasta had a perfect bite to it. The service was great. Only negative was the frigid temp of the restaurant. Men kept coats on kind of cold... food should be able to stay warm & not cool off because the room is so cold!
Amazing! As always......
Highly recommend Canaletto as the best of the best Italian restaurant in Newport Beach.
Very nice menu. The food and service were excellent. We will visit this restaurant when we visit Newport Beach again!
Our waiter was fantastic. He sold us on the specials which were all equally outstanding. We really enjoyed our dinner...and of course a couple of bottles of wine. Again the waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you.
Food is ok. Not super fl
Wonderful! I absolutely found this restaurant gorgeous, friendly staff, great food
Beautiful decor, beautiful music and delicious food
Always great food and management!
Great food and great service, but it was really expensive. I am thankful for the great food and great service, but I would expect the same from something that cost half as much.
My food was cold and by the time they brought it, my friends had ate their food.
Amazing experience , seat at the outdoor patio and ask for Jacopo , he is the best of the best !
Thank you to all team !

Food always tasty and presented well. Waiters very helpful.
Desserts are delicious especially the apple crepes
Canaletto has the best and most authentic Italian food anywhere in the US. I dare anyone to find a better Italian restaurant. The Newport Beach location executes beautifully - congratulations to whomever the manager is of that location. We have been to Canaletto many, many times and have never been disappointed. Well done.
It was a great anniversary date. Food and service was amazing. Will be coming back soon.
The server was very busy and was abrupt when we asked him for clarification of menu items. He gave us the impression he couldn’t be bothered and barely checked on us. Won’t be going back.
We always have a wonderful time at Canaletto's. Thank You!
We are local clients since 3 years ago.
Really , this is the best of the best authentic Italian certified restaurant in all Newport Beach and Orange County.
The food is amazing, but the service from Giovanny the GM looks like the owner with all the responsibilities , Tony , Moi and Raul the great chefs!! Antonio the right hand of all Canalleto team, amazing guys !!
Jose, George, Giacoppo, James , El Licenciado, Julio , Chavita, Citlali, Maria, Melissa and the Water party girl , all amazing team , they are great !

Thank you all Canalleto team you are part of our family !
See you soon !
The quality, freshness and preparation of the food is unique. Of equal importance, the waiters are true professionals who know the food and are always there at just the right time.
We had a party of 5 and a one year old! It was a perfect birthday lunch. We had Caesar salad - nice and tangy, bruschetta - I’ve had better and its only 3 pieces, the salmon - perfectly cooked but nothing unusual, the pasta with the brandy cream sauce - rich and totally delicious!, and the favorite pizza - best pizza I’ve ever had!!! Lovely lovely lunch. We will go back whenever we can afford it.
Canaletto never disappoints, they have become our family favorite for any special occasion, even for our vegan daughter!
A delicious Birthday luncheon!
WONDERFUL CONSISTENT RESTAURANT WITH REMARKABLE FOOD. GREAT WAITERS AND WAITRESSES. TOP MANAGEMENT
Sat at the bar and was helped by Luca. He is the best bartender!
My Husband and I treated our Son and Daughter in law to an early dinner, and hands down, we each were impressed with our dinners and service. Had dessert and coffee which was fabulous. The quality ingredients across the board scream out for sure. Yum Yum. We are doing this again soon.
For some of us, our hearing isn’t what it used to be, and we were happy to be seated in a remote area w/o a lot of background noise. Something to consider
I highly recommend Canaletto, It is a beautiful restaurant and has a nice ambiance. We had a wonderful server Carlo, and he recommended the chicken. It was delicious and fantastic. We can't wait to go back!
Jacob our server was attentive and made sure we were happy.
Every day it's a pleasure to visit this fabulous restaurant.
Everything is perfect!
Thank you Canaletto team.
We highly recommend Canaletto As the best Italian Food restaurant in Orange county.
Food is always tasty and elegantly plated.
Servers are polite and helpful. When anyone wants to know where one can really get both good service and a variety of Italian dishes I can always recommend this restay
Always one of my favorite spots when I am in the area!
I’m down visiting from the Bay Area and just had a magical evening at Canalettos with friends. Everything was perfect and I am definitely coming back. The restaurant was filled with people enjoying the food and each other, giving the place a joyful ambience.
Antonio, the manager, was warm and welcoming, and came to our table often to make sure we had everything we needed.
We ordered the Branzino, a delicate Mediterranean sea bass which was delicious. Our wonderful server, Melissa, expertly prepared it at our table. It came with lightly seasoned broccollini & baby carrots. Dessert was apple crepes with vanilla ice cream.
A truly fantastic dinner.
Food is always amazing. Service great. One of my top 5 places to eat.
Although this restaurant doesn't make it into our thinking very often, we are always impressed with the food and service. A wonderful experience.
