While the food here was certainly not bad, we honestly were not that impressed and had higher expectations. The chicken parmigiana was only fair; the sauce was extremely garlicky; so much so that it overpowered every other flavor in the dish. In contrast, the sauce on the pasta was very bland and tasted a bit like unseasoned tomato paste. Service... More

Affordable, adult palate pleasing Italian fare with a small children's menu, Canino's offers a warmth inside the Victorian house with stained glass windows in the bays, dark wood accenting the walls and ceiling, maroon carpet, and lighting that adds a sense of comfort without forcing me to use glasses to read the menu. Daily soups are not to be ignored,... More

We had our company Xmas dinner at Canino's again this year and as always the experience was simply fantastic. I had the seafood soup, ciopolino (?) and I enjoyed every last bite. It comes with a fresh salad made with quality lettuce and Italian dressing along with a choice of soups, I had the minestrone. Dinner is served with fresh... More

We met my parents for dinner here our first night visiting and it was great as usual. It just happened to be on a Tuesday and that's when they have an awesome retro priced menu for some of their items, quite a deal! The portions are huge and the food is very flavorful. I had the vegetarian sampler which was... More

We stopped for a nice lunch at Canino's not having read any of the reviews. I was a little less impressed than some of the other reviewers, but it wasn't a bad experience. I wanted the scallops florentine and was thrilled to learn that they could do it gluten free. My husband had a Caesar salad that looked amazing and... More

First visit and this soup was exceptionally delicious! I would come back just for soup and salad!!! The entrees were tasty, although my husband had a veal dish he was not impressed with. Nice, cozy dining, good service. Will return hopefully for the soup!!!!

Canino's had been in business for years and it's easy to see why. Good food at prices where you can afford to bring the entire family for dinner. In fact on this Sunday night many of the multiple dining rooms had large families enjoying dinner. We opted to sit upstairs on their patio. You can get a view of sunset... More

You can't beat the everything made from scratch food. The owner Clyde learned from his family and hasn't changed a thing. All the dishes are good but I have a hard time passing on the spaghetti. The ambience is perfect for a luncheon with a friend, date night, or a family dinner. Oh and ask for extra rolls, always hot... More

Went on a weeknight with 8 friends and the specials were amazing ...1970's pricing. Excellent service, great tasting Italian specialties, salads and nice special wines for less than $20 per bottle. The total per person was less than $80 per....Dont know how they do it.
