I met friends at Canales last night for dinner. It was pretty busy, but we were seated right away & the service was great. I have eaten here many times over the years & have always had good food, but the seafood risotto special that I ordered last night was beyond good! It was absolutely delicious!

We had a family dinner there and it was very disappointing. My fish was tasteless and the other family members were not impressed either. I was also pricey and the service did not check to see if we needed more water.

Another local favorite but food is not consistent nor is the service. Pasta dishes are generally a good choice. Stay away from the veal.

I was fortunate to enjoy a entrée at Canale's Restaurant at Christmas time while I was spending time with family in the Oswego Area. It was delicious. Then later I was at Ontario Orchard's and purchased two quarts of their homemade spaghetti sauce. I brought the sauce back to Georgia with me and served it with my homemade meatballs to... More

This is not a real Italian restaurant. Used to be years ago but has went very downhill. Portions are small. Very pricey. Tastes like frozen items reheated, not a real Italian restaurant to me. I'm very Italian so I know Italian food. Wait staff is very young and just don't care. They don't go out of your way for you.... More

First time for dinner, and everyone was right about the "Fixed" sauce - it was delicious. We had the Tuscan Chicken Fettucini and the Chicken with Lemon and Artichoke hearts, Both very good and large portions - had to take some home. Traded in the dinner salad for a Caesar and that was very good, too. Jade, our waitress, let... More
