We got take-outs. The employees were super-friendly and helpful and made some good recommendations. Food was really good although the spaghetti bolognese was not like any I have had before - a bit disappointing. Everything else was really tasty and everyone enjoyed it.

Nothing special about Cannova's. The pizza is thin and crispy but not much imagination with toppings. My linguine was rubbery and the sauce came from a can. House salad was so-so. We went on a Friday night, the kitchen was slow, our server was great....More
