Canaletto Ristorante Veneto
Our full bar features a selection of Italian and domestic wines, with an emphasis on wines from the “Tre Venezia” area of Italy (Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino-Alto Adige). Extensive prosecco list as well as many grappa, spirits and after dinner drink selections.
Went for happy hour - restricted space to enjoy also thought menu very limited for HH
Won’t be going again for happy hour
Excellent food and service as always.
Valentine’s Day celebration had great atmosphere, great food, highly recommend this establishment if you love Italian food!!
Great experience and great food
Classy Italian restaurant with excellent food perfect for a date night out!
Reliable great restaurant
We love Canaletto. It’s a little more pricey than some Italian places, but it’s one of the best, worth it!! We love the pastas, chicken, filet, gnocchi. Everything is good, you really can’t go wrong! Our little hot spot after a long day of shopping at fashion island!
Valentines Day - delicious as usual
Lovely restaurant, great atmosphere and wonderful food. We'll definitely go back again
Mediocre Italian food. I remember it being better. Bread was great
Our waiter Carlo was amazing, the food was good & the vino overflowing. As always the group makes it super fun.
George, the server, was nice. Food was pretty good, a bit expensive though. Overall, was a pleasant place to visit.
Service was outstanding and the food was delicious.
Excellent ! High five restaurant ! Service ambiance food everything deserves 5 stars ! a true favorite for us .Try gamberoni alla busara or whole loup de mer in rock salt . Place is packed so make sure you reserve !
best restaurant in fashion island mall !!!
This our first time at Canaletto at fashion island. My wife and I enjoyed food and restaurant very much. Our service was excellent and accommodating. We highly recommend this restaurant. Partisan right across from the restaurant.
My 2 go place. The other day the food could have been much hotter but still delicious.
Service by Georgio was fantastic. The manager Derek makes sure all is perfect. His attention to detail makes for a wonderful dining experience!
Definitely a restaurant we will return to again and again.
Service was very good and the branzino was cooked just right. A reasonable wine menu and Italian faire fit for any weekday night out.
It’s not a pretentious crowd and does have somewhat of that mall-sy vibe but nonethe less descent. Don’t expect a “ciao” or “gratze” but you will have a nice meal.
Great food. Expensive restaurant but the quality is there.
Food was delicious and well prepared.
Service was perfect and a very nice place.
Food is overpriced! bruschetta for and salad were both forgettable especially at the price! Goulash was okay, the only dish that was good was the seafood stew, desserts were good! Maybe it was restaurant week at Newport Beach, but food is average at best and service was spotty! We happened to spend a week in New Orleans the week before, when compared to Commander’s Palace, Brennan’s and Antoines, the only thing comparable is price! Hope Canaletto is better than what we had Saturday night! We shall stick with our favorite NB Italian restaurant!
We had dinner with old friends who had not before dined at Canaletto’s. The restaurant remains on our list of favorites and believe it will make our friends list, too. Like too many restaurants anymore, a comfortable level of conversation is almost impossible. Sadly, loud, disrespectful fellow diners have become the norm.
Everything was fabulous. Ate there as part of NB Restaurant Week. Portion was more than enough. I couldn't eat it all
Service was very good & well done.
We enjoyed our stay there.
Everything that was served to us, especially the pasta with sausage & sauce were delicious & cooked right. Plus nice filling portions.
Maria, our service person & her back ups were very nice & professional.
Our dinner here was excellent- 4 different entrees on the Restaurant Week menu were all fantastic. We'll be back!
I specified that this was a business meal, but heard back that the Sunday night atmosphere was not conducive. The meal was fine.
I love this restaurant and will be back. Delicious Italian food, well prepared. The bread was a little hard, but everything else was great.
Excellent! Food and service always spot on, the best!
It is a very friendly environment and food always is amazing!
The food, especially the seafood platter, was delicious. The whitefish was not in keeping with quality of the others- lobster, scallop, etc. It was noisy, but it was also NY Eve. Service was excellent. This was not a 3$, definitely 4$, more expensive than I remember. Very good overall.
Food is always great and our routine spot for New Year’s Eve dining. Looking forward to next year!
Nothing notable from our recent meal. Fair ceasar salad, chicken was okay......came with overcooked brokolini and scoop of plain mashed potatoes. My wife had salmon....a bit overcooked with brokolini. The steamed baby carrots we both had were probably the best part of the meal. Bar seating is more fun...... good martinis.
Arrived earlier than expected for reservation. They seated us immediately. Sausage pasta and mushroom gnocchi were excellent. Cheese platter was delicious but overpriced at $20 (same price as an entree).
We eat here all the time and absolutely love it. Best food ever. Normally things are great. Not this visit… Service was poor. Maybe they were understaffed but for the first time in many visits I’ve had to flag people down for help such as water refills etc. server also did not share specials without being asked to do so. They also try to seat us on the patio under the heaters which are very uncomfortable. Got a bit of an attitude when we asked to sit inside rather than outside. Not sure why this visit was so different but had this been the first time the amazing food probably would not have even save the visit.
4/5 stars. It took almost 10 mins to get greeted once we sat down. But from their on our service was great. we each started with one of their crafted cocktails which we both enjoyed my husband order the Manhattan and I ordered a gin Amalfi martini which has grapefruit and lime 👌🏼
Next we started with a pizza to start. It came out bubbly and hot. We ordered their sausage pizza. The crust was lchewy thin ish just how i like ...loaded with cheese...lighter hand with the sausage. It was ok
Next for my entree i ordered shrimp and crab risotto and boy was i happy it was absolutely delicious will definitely come back just for that again!
On the other hand my husband ordered beef stew with fettuccine pasta which he said was pretty good.
All in all we enjoyed but it may be sometime for us to return
Excellent food & service. A bit noisy & tables very crowded together. Nice table by the fireplace if available. Delicious sea bass & risotto. Wonderful service
Pear salad. Good
Risotto Sant Emore. Good.
Restroom. Overflowing paper towels in all waste receptacles. Not good.
Lasagna came out cold....twice
Our dinner was perfect. Our server was outstanding and it was a beautiful evening. The Seabass special was over the top.
