We had a birthday surprise for my nephew at Canelli's and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the delicious food. There were about 25 of us present and the service was excellent!

Ive been a long time fan of this place and was compelled to tell everyone how amazing my experiences have been at Canelli's. Most recently we had my sisters engagement party here. We were a group of around 55 people and from start to finish the planning process with the owner was amazing. From menu suggestions to modifications to setup... More

We have eaten at Canelli's a few times now and have never had a bad meal. The service was very good and the waiter we had was quite funny. Would definitely go back.

Long wait, combined with the overcooked and bland food and espresso that was embarrasing. That was topped off by the owner that insisted on picking up the credit card receipt to see what the tip was while we were still there

I visited Canelli's early December. The service was fabulous, our server Alex was pretty funny! The calamari was delightful! I loved my risotto! The restaurant was clean, quiet and made for a relaxing date night!

Service was good, Atmosphere was even better, but the food was terrible. It could have been that we were there at 9pm on a weeknight, but we still expected fresh food. Bad first impression.

Me and my wife visited canelli's for the first time on Friday December 9, 2016. She wanted to get away from the usual western restaurants and try something new. We used tripadvisor to find canellis. From the moment we walked in the service was amazing, the food was even better (except the desserts) and the atmosphere was perfect. We ordered... More

Our dinner was great and the kitchen extremely accommodating in the substitutions we requested. We decided to have coffee and dessert, and it was difficult to choose from the wonderful selection. We chocolate lava cake was amazing. Menu is varied, portions are generous, and the food tastes like your Nona prepared the meal specifically to your liking.

My fiancee and I went here for dinner. My fiancee had a manicotti which was a bit plain. The smokey BBQ pizza that I had was pretty good. Staff were friendly, but not very pro-active.

I treated a good friend of mine to lunch at Cannelli's Italian Eatery for his early birthday present. We had an excellent meal and the service given by Chantelle, our waitress was wonderful. She was very attentive and always asked if we were doing well, how was the food, would we like cracked pepper on our dishes, etc. To start,... More

Description
Our Story In May of 2000, the original owners of Brampton's first pizza and pasta houses opened Canelli's Italian Eatery. The Brampton landmark, Queen's Pizzeria, was known for serving traditional Italian recipes, quality ingredients and hosting service. Queen's is now a nameplate in Brampton's history and remembered by many. Canelli's has filled the hearts of people looking for quality, homestyle Italian food. Our menu hosts a variety of antipasti, classic pasta dishes, homemade pizzas, seafood, grilled meat and fresh dessert. We pair traditional classics with an extensive beer and wine list, for a perfectly balanced meal. Our pizza dough, sauces, dressings and selection of desserts are made in-house staying true to the classic recipes that founded Queen's Pizzeria. Ask around and many residents of Brampton will remember the Volkswagen Beatles that zipped around town delivering piping hot dinner. Knowing that people still appreciate traditional, quality food, Canelli's offers classics with a fresh face.
