I had heard many great things about Canali's. The service, salads and my partners dinner, Linguine with clam sauce were great. I had the veal sorentino which was quite tough. Also, there was so much tomato sauce on it which was overwhelming to the dish....More

We went to Canali’s based on all the reviews. The food is mediocre and average. The portions are large and each entree can feed two. The ambiance is in between a restaurant and a dinner. The strange thing was that they charge extra for blue...More

Canali's has been in business for many years, and based on my most recent visit, it should be able to remain so for many more. Opening at 4:00 PM, the parking lot was well on the way to being full by 4:30. The menu, which...More
