excellent service and food and you will definitely need a doggie bag. I prefer to eat dinner earlier so we got there around 4:30 and it was perfect timing.

This is a very popular place, so reservations are suggested. The food is, of course, Italian, very good and varied. Prices are reasonable. Go with a good appetite as servings are substantial. At Canali's everyone seems to be ready to ask for a "to go" box. This is a place that we always visit when returning to Schenectady.

This restaurant is always good. Eat here at least once a month. It has been around a long time and it has a great red sauce for pasta. Classic dishes along with new invented ones never disappoint. Leftovers last a few days because the portions are huge.

From the bread and salad, right thru to the main course, Canali's is the best Italian restaurant experience in the Capital District. Sauce has a hint of sweetness and pasta is cooked to perfection.

Our son turned 20 and this is where he asked to go for dinner. We (somewhat) frequently go here for dinner and the food is always very good with large portions. Service is typically good even though they are usually very busy. This was a Wednesday and the parking lot and dining room were very close to being full. We... More

There are many Italian restaurants in Schenectady but Canali's is the best by far. We've dined here many times and we always keep coming back. I've tried other Italian restaurants on friends' recommendations but they all seem to have the same problem: their sauces are way too salty and in most cases that makes the meal I've ordered inedible. Not... More

Italian style eatery, Always busy on Fri- Sun so make reservations. Outstanding beef tenderloin & Italian dishes ( veal/chicken parm.) including pasta. Best time to go is through the week to avoid packed house on wk ends. Reasonable pricing and lots of parking.

Canali's is one of the great long established upscale Italian restaurants in Rotterdam and Schenectady. They do a great job with catering, dinners and sandwiches to go, but they outdo themselves in regular dinner menu. New York Strip is always incredible, tomato basil sauce is wonderful, they have excellent homemade pastas, salads and antipasto, and of course they do a... More
