We eat at Canali's frequently. My mom worked there for 35 years. Currently run by the 3rd generation of the Alteri family. The food is Italian American fare. They serve steak, pork, veal and chicken entries as well as a great variety of pasta dishes. They have a full service bar. They also have a... read more

I enjoy the quality of the food they use and the portions are great. I feel that a lot of their foods are salty or greasy. I ordered scallops over rice and it was like butter soup. It would have been great with out the stick of butter in it. Also, the tables are very cramped... U literally sit back... More

We have been here several times and they are consistent with service and value. Very good food and very plentiful. We always take home lots of food too. Great place to eat!

We loved the food & the wine we ordered. The portions are Huge! I couldn't finish my dinner. We will definitely come... More

Truly a family atmosphere with great food and service. It's always busy, so reservations are strongly suggested. Fabulous menu, wine list and servers. You want for nothing at this place. Been there many times and we'll return many more.

We were a party of 10. Our waitress was great. Every one enjoyed their dinner and could not wait to take our doggie bags for dinner the next day. I would go back again.

My girlfriend and I tried this place out last night for the first time. We always get the same thing when we try out an Italian place, her the spaghetti & meatballs & me the fettuccine alfredo. Both were amazing. The sauces on both reminded me of something my grandmother would make as a kid. The fettuccine was made on... More

There's been some mediocre experiences here and there's been some amazing experiences here! Never anything bad, though! It's a delicious place, a little pricey but still, yummy! Love the fact that they make the homemade pasta and their meatballs are amazing! Kinda sad I'm not living in NY anymore... The only other problem I have with this place is it's... More

Canali's was once the only Italian restaurant that I would frequent or suggest to others to eat at. Being from Italian descent myself, I enjoyed their delicious, home-made sauce and the large, filling portions. I'd usually have food leftover for the next day's lunch. However, my boyfriend and I went to Canali's for our anniversary and were sadly disappointed with,... More

Takeout - 3rd time and last! Stick to dining in, takeout service is horrible, the girls that take the order and package it as well as cashing you out at window need training on how to take a order,pack it and cashing out customers, they are short, unhelpful, and not friendly at all. Dining room similar but they are a... More
