Fun Italian located in a 1900s ish house.

Enter the front door of the house on College Avenue into a warm and cozy setting. Dark wood pannelling, tables of various sizes and shapes give a hint of the friendly service experienced here. The menu is quite extensive with a price range for most every budget. Quality of food is good... read more

I've only been to Canino's a few times. A long time ago I ate here and really liked my meal of gnocchi in cream sauce. That was delicious. I revisited the restaurant with my family this last week. It was just an ok visit. I love the old building from 1905 that it is inside, as I find old buildings... More

We went here for our anniversary dinner in August. What a nice place. In the summer months, they have a very romantic outdoor patio on the second floor out back. It is lit up with candles and white lights. Not a great view of the alley, but the patio is nice. Great Italian food as well!

We had our company Christmas party here, the food was great and our server was attentive and funny. It's also good for a romantic night with your spouse.

I found the Cioppino entree offered very disappointing. I seek out restaurants whenever traveling offering this dish and this offering was without doubt the most disappointing in my experience. Cioppino is intended to be a spicy tomato sauce fisherman stew. While the shellfish included were plentiful the sauce was bland and nearly tasteless despite the abundance of crushed tomatoes; perhaps... More

Are you short on $$$$? Monday night is for you all you can eat spaghetti for $3.95 wow it would be a value at $6.95. The food is great the house is one of a kind that anyone who visits would want to live in. The portions are large, noodles homemade and the bread is better than mama's. If your... More

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
