The restaurant atmosphere was well laid out, however washrooms are not accessible on the first floor (have to climb a set of stairs) Our waiter was awesome, he was very knowledgable and friendly. We ordered a bottle of Riesling and shared the traditional pizza, there was definitely enough for two people. The pizza was good but could have used some... More

My daughter and I have been in Toronto 10 days and ate at Canelli's almost every day trying Most of the menu items. Taste is sincerely as we were in Italy. Dressings Very delicate. Service Very Kind. The chefs are Very nice and expert. We would recommend it to anybody willing to taste real Italian flavours.

Went there for my hubby's birthday. It wasn't very busy at all (on a Tuesday night) - which by the way is pizza night. We had the escargot, bruschetta and caesar salad to start (3 of us). All were very tasty. Then for the main courses we had the Penne alla Vodka, Penne Con Pollo and Veal Parmigiana (with a... More

I was in town for work and decided to make the most of my trip to Brampton. After a couple of searches online I came across Canelli's. I looked at some reviews and decided to give the place a go. I was seated right away and was given water and a menu. I browsed the menu and had two item... More

Food is always great and leaves you stuffed - waiter service needs improvement - be sure to ask for pitcher of water or leave bottle of wine on table cuz they'll never come back for refills. Shouldn't have to ask for the simple things like bread basket or cutlery but it happens.

Came here for a birthday and we all had our own pizzas. The restaurant was so good and it had a huge variety of pizza. The place was packed and full of service and friendly staff. Food was amazing and the atmosphere felt very Italian. I would defiantly recommend this place. Best in Brampton!

Went here with friends of ours and had a great night, food was great, service was excellent. The menu was not massive so made it easier to choose, and a few dessert choices which were also very good. unfortunately it is in Brampton so we may not get back there for a bit, but we will be back.

Our Story In May of 2000, the original owners of Brampton's first pizza and pasta houses opened Canelli's Italian Eatery. The Brampton landmark, Queen's Pizzeria, was known for serving traditional Italian recipes, quality ingredients and hosting service. Queen's is now a nameplate in Brampton's history and remembered by many. Canelli's has filled the hearts of people looking for quality, homestyle Italian food. Our menu hosts a variety of antipasti, classic pasta dishes, homemade pizzas, seafood, grilled meat and fresh dessert. We pair traditional classics with an extensive beer and wine list, for a perfectly balanced meal. Our pizza dough, sauces, dressings and selection of desserts are made in-house staying true to the classic recipes that founded Queen's Pizzeria. Ask around and many residents of Brampton will remember the Volkswagen Beatles that zipped around town delivering piping hot dinner. Knowing that people still appreciate traditional, quality food, Canelli's offers classics with a fresh face.
