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.

A bit pricy for small portions, although the food was good. Ordered and appetizer which came out within minutes of them bringing our meals. I Informed the hostess ahead of time that we were celebrating my daughter’s birthday...she said she would take care of it... they did nothing, yet we heard the staff singing Happy Birthday to other patrons. Overall Disappointed in our family visit to Canaletto’s.

You'll know the place by the obnoxiously exotic and expensive vehicles parked in front. I tell myself this is strictly publicity, God I hope the food isn't like the curbside show. It wasn't. The service was good, the place is lovely, gorgeous open kitchen. The food was delicious! We will most definitely go back!

We were charged for the next tables food. After that correction we were handed someone else’s credit card with the bill & our credit card was given to someone else. We had problems trying to rectify this with the manager. Our credit card was charged multiple times. After a lot of frustration & argument we left paying nothing as we insisted on the ridiculous experience.

The restaurant was super clean and fresh. The knowledgeable wait staff Argos and assistant were charming and efficient. Their recommendations were thoughtfully made and were spot on.

The octopus grilled without the potatoes was charred and lemony. The steak was scrumptious and very well presented. The children’s bolognas was tasty and all plates were cleaned off. A fun time by all.
