As two couples celebrating our 49th anniversaries we were very disappointed with our recent dinner at Cannovas. We had a good table and told our guests how ordering the pasta or a sandwich would be good. First of all our waitress must have been on her first night. She forgot our bread and salad, and when I reminded her after... More

We ordered a pizza to take back to our B&B. Not craving anything in particular, we took the recommendation of the bartender and ordered a Pesto (with shrimp, ricotta, pesto, mozzarella and basil). On a busy Saturday night, it was ready when we came back in the 20 minutes we had been told. The crust was thin and unique. There... More

We went to Cannova's on the recommendation of our innkeeper, Michelle - what a great place! Pizza was some of the best we ever had. Our server was great - friendly, detail-oriented. What impressed us is that she was the ONLY server and didn't miss a thing! Perfection.

Doesn't matter what pasta it's on or if it's in the lasagna, I love the red sauce. Special's are always intriguing but I'm a red sauce fan, might deviate for pizza... Everyone is pleasant. The place is small but they are efficient. Nice wine list.

Delicious!!!! My husband and I had the homemade Lasagna and it was so good! We saw the pizza at another table it looked fantastic and smelled so good too. The portion sizes were generous. The sauce/gravy was sweet and delicious. It was the best Lasagna I have had in a long time. I heated up my leftovers for lunch the... More

Great experience with great food. Feels like a big home kitchen. Smaller restaurant so go early and expect to wait, but its fun, its good and time flies.

The meal was delicious. I would recommend an 8 inch pizza for one person. I ordered a Chicken Alfredo pizza and it was amazing. Probably one of the best pizza's I've ever eaten. My wife ordered a cheese pizza with olives and was also very happy. They were also very accommodating of her allergies since many things are made in... More

I love the Venetian, my daughter loves the cheese. The Chicken Tuscany is an award winner, love that too! The house salad is so different with sausage and artichokes, their homemade dressing is delicious. Im getting hungry!!
