Awesome food!!

I have eaten here a few times and have never been disappointed! The staff is friendly, portions are large and the food is always amazing! The homemade ravioli is my all time favorite.

I have been a customer over the last 40 years and would say it has degrade to a point that I will have to seriously consider if I will return. Admittedly the last time I went the place was absolutely over busy. Service was horrible; waited at least 45 minutes for our table, unfriendly wait staff, and the food was... More

My family has gone frequently to this establisment due to its close location to our house. The food is ok and the service is adequate. We do not like their Alfredo sauce and their house sauce is very acidic.

It's been a long winter, and we wanted to get "out of town" and have a nice meal with friends. It has been a while since we went to Canali's, so we made a reservation for an early Sunday evening meal. Man 'o man! The place was packed! We could not believe how many families were there...many celebrating important occasions...it... More

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 full service take out counter.... 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 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.
