Athos, our server was absolutely amazing. He was friendly, and was there before we needed to look for him when we needed something for the table. I was able to order my favorite item on Canaletto’s specialty menu, Osso Buco al Zafferano, and my wife ordered the Risotto Sant ‘erasmo. Both dishes came out perfect, and there is just no way one person can get through the veal shank by themselves!! It was a beautiful night with wonderful wine, food, and service. Will definitely be back next time we are in town. Mille grazie!

What a delightful experience from beginning to end. Seven of us decided to have a nice dinner before heading back to our home states of Colorado and Illinois and to our surprise, all of us agreed that this was one of the best meals we have ever eaten stateside or in Italy. The decor, staff, food, and ambiance were exactly what we needed to end an eventful weekend in California.

Finally able to get out of the house, a group of 4 of us went for dinner. Everything was amazing, and for $100 per head all in it was a great deal.

The food was mediocre at best. Our waiter with his fake Italian accent was kinda rude. However, that’s typical of Fashion Island service.
