Exceeded my expectations!

This place was better than I had expected. They have a nice little patio where you can eat outside, and inside is nice and spacious as well. Service was quite fast. I got my drinks and appetizers and food at a reasonable amount of time. I didn't expect mix but the food was surprisingly really... read more

Went to Canelli's last week for dinner (we had a wagjag voucher and were anxious to try it out). Overall, the meal was very average and something I would expect from a chain restaurant like East Side Marios (maybe not even as good). Not a very big portion, although service was great. For the price we paid with the wagjag... More

Hello, I wanted to thank you for your feedback and your positive comments about the service. However, this might be the first time I actually get a guest's disappointment with our portion size because most of our guests leave with Take out containers of leftovers. I wish you had mentioned your disappointment on your visit so that we could have... More

Visited Canelli's again a few weeks ago with my husband. As always, the food was delicious and very reasonably priced and the service is always top notch, being served by Alex, who is very efficient and friendly. Very good, casual Italian dining.

We celebrated my niece's baptism at Canelli's on Sunday July 26, 2015. We had about 50 or so guests. The staff was great. Very helpful and friendly. The food was good and for a good price as well. I recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a nice family restaurant for their next party.

I visited this restaurant for a business luncheon at 11:45 am. We were the only ones in the restaurant at that time. Despite this, after bringing our drinks and taking our order, we did not see the waiter for another 40 minutes and sat with empty glasses. I had the spinach manicotti and found it to be cooked well, but... More

Visited Canelli's again on Thursday, July 2/15, with my husband. We did not have an appetizer of dessert because we were not too hungry, but had the cannalloni, which I have had before and it is delicious. The bread put on the table was also delicious. The service is very good with Alex serving us again and the young owner... More

My husband and I went to Canelli's for a wonderful dinner while visiting Brampton this past weekend. I had the Penne All’ Arrabbiata and my husband has the Penne con pollo. Both dishes were delicious! So delicious in fact, we went back the next night for another dinner. Highly recommend you make Canelli's your go to restaurant while in Brampton.

We found something that looks like STEEL WOOD IN OUR FOOD upon speaking to the owner the first response was to imply that we lied and secondly that we put it there ourselves! Word for word "WE TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY AFTER THE FOOD LEAVES OUR KITCHEN" was the reaction. After that the owner felt it was appropriate to hang up... More

Hello again Julie. 1. I hang up on your husband because I have zero tolerance for improper language and threats directed towards me or my staff. 2. You ordered TAKE OUT on FRIDAY but somehow realized there is something wrong with your food on SUNDAY. As soon as the food leaves our establishment, anyone could temper with it. That is... More

I am sitting here at the restaurant as I write this. I live a 2 min walk away from the restaurant and I was starving. I decided to read the reviews about it since I always see it driving by on the way back home. The reviews blew me away, and just got me even more hungry. Also, I really... More
