They are close to home with good food and a decent price. We enjoyed the service and choice of seating for the evening. We will dine there more often and also like the opportunity to take out!

A mainstay family restaurant that has a regular repeat clientele because of it's terrific Italian homemade menue at a fair price with an attentive wait staff. Always delicious and consistent!

I have never had a bad meal here. We have going for dinner here for many years and have celebrated family birthdays where we are treated to family style. I have tried most of the veal dinners and they are delicious. The garlic chicken is a favorite of many in my family.

Been a staple in Schenectady for many, many years. Located in the "Little Italy" section of Schenectady, NY has been a good place to go for authentic Italian food at a reasonable price. Owned and operated by from the old country Italians, you definitely get what you pay for and expect from a genuine Italian eatery.

There is something to say about having career waitresses wait on you. They are saints. Every time I go in with my mother and aunt, they are so patient and attentive. Let me tell you this is tough to do. They are great servers and personalities are wonderful. Food is the best in the city. Owner is there every night.... More

We were looking for some good local Italian spot, no frills, just good food and that's what we got with Canalis. We were greeted by two friendly ladies that sat us right away. It looks like it hasn't been updated since the day it opened with silk flower arrangemeets that have likely been there decades. When we sat down the... More

Great place, delicious food, old style atmosphere. Definitely a small family run business not a chain restaurant. Great value for your money.

We arrived about 4:30 on a Saturday afternoon. We had been out in the western part of the state earlier in the day and as we headed home we figured since we were passing close by on the Thruway - why not stop and enjoy the wonderful meals at Canali's! I thought we'd be the only people eating this early... More
