First time back in many many years, but the quality and portions haven't changed a bit! Started out with some really tasty "calamari" with marinara. "Done really well", with tender bits of squid and a light batter just made this simple dish stand out! I am a big a fan of "linguini with red clam sauce" and Canali's didn't dissapoint me. A big enough portion for this large man's appitite required half of it "to go"!

We have been coming to Canali's quite regularly for the past several years. The food is delicious, portions are enormous, the waitstaff is friendly and very accommodating; the owner is very friendly & usually stops at your table to see how your dinner is & if you are happy with your selection. Our out of town family loves to go to Canali's when they are in town - it's just like family for us when we are there. Can't say enough good things about this wonderful restaurant.

Well known for their outrageous portion sizes, Canali's boasts as a favorite of most locals. Got in right away on a Thurs with the fam, and they did not disappoint. My Sausage& peppers Marinara was the best ever. I ate about 1/3 of it. We did have fired calamari appetizer, which are highly recommended. Prices are reasonable, considering you are getting 2x what you can consume in 1 sitting. Best Italian ever.
Other folks less than top rating are totally off-base. Typical NYers, I guess; they find fault with everything!
