I'm not sure what happened, we usually love the chicken parm at this place, but on Valentine's day we had the worst chicken parm ever. The chicken was hard, tasteless and had a strange texture. It was really bad. Maybe it was old chicken or...More

I've been going to Canale's since I was a kid. The food is the best, atmosphere is that of an old Italian Restaurant. Service is perfect. Everytime I come back home Canale's is the place I go

We've eaten at a wide variety of Chinese/International buffet restaurants. This one doesn't rate very high on our list. Oswego has many interesting good places to eat; we will not go back here.

I have been hearing about this place for a decade and a half from Oswegians and SUNY Alumni. They all praised this family Italian restaurant. I will admit being from the Metro NYC area, I am a bit of an Italian food snob. The décor...More
