This husband and wife chef team boasts from Germany and Italy respectively. They prepare and serve authentic German and Italian cuisine at its best. Do not be deceived by its location and rather spartan atmosphere. This establishment serves some of the finest authentic representative dishes from that area of Europe you'll find stateside. Only the freshest and authentic ingredients are... More

This place was recommended by a local. We had to eat here once we learned it was Italian and German. I ended up ordering from the Italian side--squash ravioli. My husband ordered from the German side--Jager schnitzel. Everything is made fresh and their beers/coffee are imported. We shared a caprese salad which was classic and delicious, as was the stuffed... More

We love this tiny little restaurant which serves up the freshest German and Italian foods from miles around. The specials you will not find anywhere else simply because some of his items are imported from Italy and Germany! My husband and I usually try to select a different dish and swap half way. It's all delicious. The desserts are quite... More

A piece of Europe. A small window into a beautiful part of this world. A married couple who using their old world cooking style and tradition brings to the coast long lost feel for many here in the south. Your cook actually grow up eating and preparing what we order.

This tiny quaint restaurant on Highway 90 in Bay St, Louis can be easily overlooked. The Italian and German husband and wife chefs offer a unique array of both traditional German and Italian comfort foods. Attention to detail is quite obvious in preparation and presentation of the dishes served. Although my favorite, sauerbraten was not offered on the menu, The... More

If your looking for authentic food German or Italian this is it. We have been several times with flawless service and food. The desserts are equally perfect. Get there early as its a small place and fills up fast.

German comfort food at its best. The atmosphere was nice and the waitress was both beautiful and friendly. The food was delicious and as authentic as you will get in the United States. A nice and cozy little place. Next time I will try the Italian side of the menu!

Have been living in Waveland for the past 3 years, just got around to trying Cannella last night, wish we would have tried this place when we first got here. It was great, all dishes we selected were delicious. Plan to go back soon and try more on the menu.

This was our first dining experience at Canella but it won't be our last. We ordered schnitzel and it was extremely authentic and enjoyable. I enjoyed the small feel of the dining area. It was rather quiet and unlike the larger dining rooms filled with the usual restaurant chatter. The pork is imported and is authentic German. They make everything... More
