Great server, unbelievable Burrata, Procuitto and Tomato plate.

I lived in Italy for years and this was as good or better than I experienced in over a decade in Europe

The menu was shortened. The meal was terrible. The food came out 45 minutes late and by the time we got it. The food was cold. And if that wasn't enough the bill was high. I will never go back to this place. It is really not work it.

We were celebrating my wife, Rose's birthday. The restaurant is very elegant. We were seated near the fireplace, a very romantic place.
Service was wonderful and the food was a delightful experience.
We will return, even though we live on the other coast. ;-)
Thank you,

Service was very good....pleasant and efficient server. I thought prices were high. The lunch special at $27.95 for 3 course was priced well but we don't eat 3 courses for lunch unless it's a special event. Would have been nice to see a pasta lunch special priced lower. ...small salad and small portion of pasta. The calamari appetizer was quite good. The ground beef and pasta was OK, nothing special for $23.95.

Great food. Not a HUGE selection on their post-Covid menu (as my gf had her heart set on the gnocchi but they didn't have it) but the food was delicious.

Our service was outstanding, and as always the food was delicious! The ambiance was not quite the same with the limited indoor seating, but of course this is not the fault of the restaurant. I give them credit for making the best during these unusual times, and I look forward to continuing to support Canaletto!

Always as great experience. I lived in Milano for 3 years and the food at Canaletto is authentic and as good as what you in Italy. They have the ONLY Tiramisu in the U.S. that is at the echelon of what you will get in Europe. I highly recommend this restaurant.

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!
