Surprisingly outstanding! Food was great as was service and live music as we enjoyed dinner outside. Mushroom soup was smooth and tasty, salad crisp and unique, and our entrees perfectly prepared. We didn’t expect to order a dessert but yielded to the panna cotta which completed a wonderful dinner out. Thank you La Cannelle.

Wanted to love this place - it's a tiny spot and we booked a very early breakfast for Mother's Day. When we arrived, there were several tables open (we were early even for our early reservation), and we were sat by the window.

After our waters were brought over and our menus distributed, we were told (not asked) to move to a table in the back by the kitchen. They said that they had a party of 8 coming in, needing our table. This would've been fine, but we watched them break up two tables in the back, built for a party of 8, to set up our 4-top.

A group of 8 walked in, people well into their 80s - I thought okay, I understand. Then THE SAME THING happened. They were sat by the window, waters distributed, when they TOO WERE UPROOTED to the middle of this very tiny restaurant. They looked equally confused and had a challenge getting into their seats in the tight space. For the entire breakfast, waitstaff bumped their chairs getting around them.

I said to the owner that I've never had this situation happen, much less twice. And, I've worked in many a restaurant, large and small. I cannot imagine this ever being okay, especially twice.

It was our first experience at Cannelle, and it will be our last. Seriously, save yourself the trouble, unless you order takeout.

Innovative specials like the homemade tagliatelle with goat was delicious. And I was headed there mainly for the duck breast from the main menu. Accompanied by many healthy starter & salad choices makes this little know place very attractive.
Being a BYO & making reservations easily though Open Table certainly help.
Outstanding service by Susan and the owner, Lubna.

We tried a number of (5) appetizers and small plates. Each was creative and delicious. My favorite was the gnocchi that sat on a tasty onion sauce. The charred kale salad was delicious. Great sized portions for sharing. We did not order an entree. We were full when we left and did not have room for dessert.

We will be back.

I would never have stopped there because of the location in a tiny row of shops. However a friend said it was wonderful and it really was!! The food was just delicious and the three of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was outstanding. It was quiet with nice music. We could talk at a normal level. I had the crab egg rolls and the cheese appetizer. One friend had steak and another had onion gnocchi. Everything is as outstanding. They even have creme brûlée for dessert.

This little place is a great find, a hidden gem. From the appearance outside you wouldn’t expect such quality, and the picture on Open Table of a dessert is also misleading- I first thought it must be a bakery. The menu is not huge but very good. The service was delightful and friendly, and I gave 4 rather than 5 on that only because the food was a little slow in the preparation. I’ll definitely plan to be back.

Cheese plate special was outstanding. Both entrees were great. Salmon was perfect and the Shrimp Orzo fantastic. Just a bit of a bite to it. The Creme Brûlée was more than enough to share and delicious. We were the first customers after the shutdown and they were more than prepared.

We've been wanting to try La Cannelle for quite awhile, and it exceeded all of our expectations. The menu has a lot of variety (as does the kid's menu), and the food is delicious - with a lot of rich flavors. We will definitely be returning in the future.

They have figured out a way to turn the parking lot along the side of the building into three individual outdoor dining pods. For those of us who will not dine inside again until 2022, a wonderful option when the temperature goes down and the nights get longer. Didn’t have to use the heater it was such a beautiful evening. Great way to enjoy the creative dishes and special presentation.

We sat outside, which was well blocked off into little "booths", which was nice. Roomy area. The service was pleasant, but seemed to take a longer time than usual. The food was excellent, as always, but with eggs they only gave 1/2 piece of toast and the home fried potatoes were scant, to put it mildly. The eggs en cocotte was delicious, but it would have been nice to have more toast to dip into it. I'll be back, for sure, though. Next time I'll ask for more.

IF you are looking for innovative Continental cuisine you do not have to go far into Media. There is a small place which excels in the Culinary world of many joined cuisines when two gals from Morocco get in the kitchen in a small strip shopping center in the heart of Wallingford. YOU will be amazed! EXQUISITE CUISINE and delightful people there.

Neighborhood gem! Never disappointed, this unassuming tucked away spot is always delightful for brunch and dinner. Some of our favorites include the hummous with house made bread, the gnocchi (get whatever kind is on the menu), and the charred kale - so simple, yet the smokiness makes it memorable. For fall, the pumpkin pound cake dessert is a comforting and satisfying finish.

Lou and her team bring elevated Mediterranean flair to Wallingford. Easy parking next to the Pantry One.

This Restaurant is run by Moroccan women that give the patrons the best Mediterranean cuisine this area has ever seen, far superior to larger places along State Street. From wonderful blended Hummus to delicious Beet Salad to Lamb Kabobs and even Shrimps & Grit all absolutely delicious! Then for dessert Chocolate Flour less Cake to Panocotta and even French Creme Brulee!
