Cano has become our families favorite Italian restaurant in Toronto. The service is friendly and excellent. The food is exceptional and the ambiance is warm. There are good wines at reasonable prices.
We would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great meal.

The experience was great until I was asked to leave. I cannot wrap my head around the fact if a party of 4 are drinking and eating that Cano Restaurant has to put a time limit on your dinner. The manager was good enough to understand but I still feel it’s not the right thing to do ....imagine how it made us feel. My bill was 500 dollars and it saddens me to know that it wasn’t good enough!!
Still not sure if I would recommend but I do want to thank the waiter and manager that were working that night.

Everyone (without a dairy intolerance) needs to try the signature dish - Gnudi al Pomodoro -- AMAZING! perfectly pillowy fluffy texture like you've never tried... just perfect.
We had the octopus (Polipo) and the stuffed sea bass with seasonal grilled veggies. The octopus was my favourite of the two.

And an extra indulgence -- flourless chocolate cake with a side of fresh vanilla bean ice cream! How can you go wrong?

Recommend to a friend???? Come on...

3rd time we have been there, we like Cano! good food, good portion size, not too big so you can enjoy 3 courses; service was attentive and friendly, but we did feel a little bit rushed.
We will be back!

There were five of us and we shared everything. Delicious Italian food, every dish was beautiful and the drinks and service were perfect. We sat in the booth - the only negative was the cold air coming off the brick wall behind us.

We decided to go last minute as friends had recommended it to us. Food was very good (my wife loved the whole fish and I did the same with the octopus). We live ten minutes away so we will be back. Service was terrific - efficient and friendly.

Table was comfortable but unfortunately we were seated right outside the kitchen when there were other options available. Apps and salads were very good. Mains were mostly good but seafood pasta was a bit spicier than anticipated and pizza was a bit too heavy on the balsamic drizzle. Lobster pasta was very good. Maybe slightly overpriced but we would try it again.

Decided to try Cano after finding them on Open Table. A bit out of my usual neigbourhood, but well worth it. Service was excellent. Our server recommended a couple of dishes, which we tried and they were amazing. As we went on a Wednesday, we were pleased to discover they offer 1/2 price on all of their bottles of wine and they throw in a meat/cheese plate appetizer with it. Great value for the dollar and the food, service and ambiance were really wonderful. Give them a try!

We've been to Cano a number of times and the food and service have always been great. The last dinner there was delicious. My husband raved about his seafood pasta and I had the gnudi with a rich wonderfully decadent sauce. Great dinner.

We had a great time at Cano.
Food was delicious and the menu had something for everyone as there were a couple of picky eaters with us.
Cocktails were also good. We ordered both on and off the menu cocktails and they were well done.
Service was very good - our waiter was friendly and helpful and patient with our boisterous table of 6.

The food was great and service was friendly. We were looking for a romantic spot, but the ambience there was more casual and would be good for friends get together or a quick bite. So depends what you are in the mood for, I guess.
Overall I enjoyed the food there, my seafood pizza was amazing !!
