Actually I went to Canali's the first time by a process of elimination. I knew of Ferrari's and decided to go back there after a long time. It was very good a year or two before. But the meal was terrible, so we decided to try the other good restaurant in the Schenectady area. I am still going there after... More

This place is simply amazing. The food is incredible and the family atmosphere is very warm. The staff was very friendly. But you come for the delicious food. It's a family owned business that's been a local favorite for years and you can tell. Everyone leaves full and with a "take home" box because they serve enormous portions. My favorite... More

The food is always delicious. When my sister visits me from Charlotte,NC, she has to have the eggplant parm and brings cavatelli home to her hubby!

I love this restaurant. The food is consistently excellent and the wait staff is friendly and efficient. It's always busy so my advice would be to make a reservation. If you're the type that likes quiet places this is not the spot for you! It does tend to be a little loud.

These guys are professionals. Did an awesome job in handling large group. Love to go back for good Italian food. Only con is that they do not open for lunch. They could easily rob other businesses of lunch traffic

If you like homemade Italian food (including all of the pasta made on-site), Canali's is the place to eat. And if you leave there still hungry, then it's your own fault, because each meal could potentially feed two people. In fact, my husband and I always share an entree and order an extra salad, and we're never disappointed!

Great Italian food, friendly staff, and great atmosphere! Nothing beats home made pasta and killer desserts to finish off a great meal!
