We go to Canali's frequently. It is a busy, family, Italian restaurant. The portions are large and the food is delicious. Plan on having some food to take home.

Have had many dinners here and never a bad experience. A great spot to bring family and friends. Wait staff is always friendly and experienced. Prices very reasonable. A busy spot on weekends.

This is my favorite restaurant anywhere. I love Italian food and it is just so good here. The staff is always friendly too. If you love Italian food too, do yourself a favor and visit Canali's!

Took in a show at the Proctor's with another couple. Before the show we had dinner at Canali's based on reviews from tripadvisor. On the weekend you better have reservations. We had a reservation for 4:30 and arrived early at 4:10 which wasn't a problem. The staff was very professional and courteous. We were seated right away and within 3... More

We had a reservation for four people last night and traveled 50 miles to get there. When we arrived they had no reservation for us and it was packed. Someone obviously had dropped the ball but the manager immediately found us a table and we were seated within five minutes. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner with an attentive waitstaff and... More

I have been visiting Canali's for many years now and this restaurant is in my top 2 Italian restaurants for the Capital District. If you include the parking situation, it is probably #1 due to issues with parking at the other top 2. We used to live in Pattersonville and now are in Stephentown, so trips to Canali's are not...

If Italian food is what you want, this is the place. Generations have passed recipes and pride down for years. The sauce is second to none, everything is home made right there in the kitchen. Portions are ridiculous, ask for the take out carton ahead of time. Ironically enough, the steak is a must try and is so good it... More

You won't be disappointed here if you are looking for a great Italian meal..and I mean great! I totally expect that you will becoming home with a "doggy bag" that you will totally eat later..or tomorrow. Great sauce- homemade pastas- a stuffed steak that will melt in your mouth...makes me want to go now.

Large delicious portions usually bring home doggy bag enough for another meal. Service first rate. Always full for dinner & one down side is noise level of talking patrons. Veal dishes my favorite. Atmosphere a bit drab, but some of best restaurants we have eaten at around the world were similiar.

We all enjoyed dinner at Canali's on a crowded Saturday night. We thought that we would not need a reservation since we were arriving just after 5:00. The place was packed! We got the last table; near the door in the bar area. They make homemade pasta. We all tried different variations with a variety of sauces. The tomato basil... More
