Someone told us we had to have pizza here....we did but wished we hadn't. The place was loud, the pizza was burnt. The worst part was coming out of the bathroom and seeing their bread sitting outside the door....yuck. We might have come on an off night but I wouldn't try it again....too many other places to venture to!

My husband and I arrived a day early for a business meeting and went into town to find a relaxing place for dinner. Walking along Main Street and looking inside to see where all the locals were made our choice of Cannova's an easy one as nearly every other place at the dinner hour was empty. When we walked in...

We were looking forward to eating our favorite Cannova's dish - Pasta Genovese - on our deck overlooking the South golf course on the most beautiful evening we've had all year. We sat down with our wine and opened the container and found pasta, tomatoes, and olives with no sauce and no taste. We called the restaurant and at first... More

First experience, but we will be back! My wife and I had the Pan/Stuffed (I forget their crusts) and it was incredible. Crust was well done and very crispy. Toppings were fresh and the sausage had a delicious and unique flavor. Our friends had a crispy thin crust special with basil and sausage, and it too was cooked to perfection... More

This is a quaint restaurant that knows how to make pizza well. One of the best pizzas I've had in awhile. Staff was friendly and courteous as well!

Small place, so go early or be prepared to wait a little while browsing the nearby shops. We had pizza - lots of options, and individual 8-inch sizes as well as larger to feed a family. It was delicious! Decent selection of wines by the glass too. The staff was very welcoming and service was great, even though it was... More

Shown up with my family to enjoy a wonderful meal and upon opening the door was told in a very unwelcome manor that it would another 15 minutes before the would be open and I needed to leave. The door was unlocked and the sign said open!! It was 5:05 and the sign on the door said they opened at... More

Had a wonderful dinner here. The chicken picatta was super--some of the best anywhere. The service was great; wine pours generous and the price was right. Thank you!

I rate the pizza #1, but can't be selfish on the pasta, it's the next best depending on your taste. Super nice atmosphere for dining in, or call ahead if you are living it up and want to "party" in your overnight spot, the carry out is full service! I never miss this place!

Food here was really special - we actually scraped our plates to get every last drop of sauce! I got the sea scallop special and my companion got lasagna. Both were flavorful and generous portions. Only complaint was that the tables are really tightly packed together - we could listen to several conversations without straining. We'll go to Cannovas again... More
