The waitress was sullen and NOT user friendly. Acted like she did us a favor by waiting on us. Six of us were there for a birthday celebration and asked what dessert was available for the birthday girl. She said all of them, so we ordered thinking it was complimentary which most restaurants do. We also asked her to take... More

The pasta is freshly made daily. The sauces are great and never salty. I highly recommend Caninos, owned by a local Fort Collins family. Doesn't get more authentic than this!

Have eaten here several times and will return! We prefer the downstairs dining areas for their ambience but in warm months don't forget to sit outside on their rooftop patio for a drink (or two)...🤗

Delicious sampler plate of spahetti, lasagna, ravioli for 1980 price on Tuesdays. Homemade spaghetti noodles were delicious, as was the other items. There was enough to take home for lunch the next day. They gave you hot yeast rolls before the food came out which were wonderfully seasoned. We didn't ask for more during the meal so not sure if...

It's hard to pick any one special thing about this excellent Italian restaurant. It's located in a cute building that is rumored to have been a fraternity many years ago. The many rooms help contain the potential noisy conversations from fellow diners. The menu is varied and extensive - last night I tried the scallop primavera and it was as... More

Went to this restaurant to celebrate my wife's 65th birthday. The staff was excellent and went above and beyond. They brought out my the birthday cake I purchased before hand along with the gift I bought her surrounded by canoli. Food was fantastic. I highly recommend this restaurant for large groups and parties.

The Italian food is good and consistent! It is the reason we continually go back to this establishment! They are reasonably priced, with a good old fashioned atmosphere, and the food and service is great! Visit Canino's when you're in Ft Collins!

If you visit the restaurant on Tuesdays, you can order off their "retro" menu--fantastic manicotti for $4. Located in a renovated older home, this is a nice option food-wise, and also for a couples outing that won't break the bank. Clyde (the owner) is usually there, and the care shown to their customers is a hallmark of the "you're family"... More

Caninos is one of my favorite places to eat in Fort Collins. Its in charming old house, the food is always good and so is the service. The prices are fair all the time but the real deal is on Tuesday when the prices are dropped way down...especially nice if you have a family. Not all the menu items are... More
