Went on a quiet Monday night. Friendly, attentive staff. Excellent straight up martini. Great puttanesca pasta followed by delicious medallions of veal piccata and tiramisu split 4 ways. Everything one hopes for in a neighborhood restaurant. Not expensive either.

Had a great meal with friends. My lunch portion of the Lobster Salad was totally amazing. My husband had pasta with chopped sausage and our friend had swordfish....all wonderful. Our server Sammy was attentive and friendly. The two-hour lunch was relaxing in this chic place. We definitely will go back!

Lovely jewel across the street from Bloomingdales. Ask about the Risotto and even the old fashioned spaghetti and meatballs is good. Brought the family and the kids loved the Meatballs, the grown ups had chicken, and veal. Nice atmosphere.

Had a very good meal again at Canaletto. Good service, nice décor. Recommend making a reservation as it is a favorite with locals. Reasonably priced upscale Italian for the Upper East Side. I think their pasta dishes are best, and their desserts are terrific. A very pleasant vibe, not too noisy. Good wine by the glass. My favorite restaurant for... More

A neighborhood restaurant which offers great food and very good personal service! This is not a "red sauce" Italian place, but everything we had was just right. I especially recommend their veal scallopini after you try their Salad Canaletto - When I get back to this area, I will definitely return to this marvelous little place.

Very warm and friendly authentic Italian restaurant. We have been there both for lunch and dinner and have enjoyed both experiences. The neighborhood includes both Bloomingdales and the Roosevelt Island Aerial Tramway.

We had a delicious personalized meal at Canaletto. Between the extensive menu and specials we found great choices but conversation with the waiter steered us to a few off-menu choices offered and executed in style. They combined fresh house made burrata with fresh figs and prosciutto and some roasted peppers on the side-yum. We also ordered a combination plate of... More

The specials of the day are delicious, soft shell crabs, mushroom stuffed pasta with truffle oil; fish...veal...chicken...all delightful. Small tables but not... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
