This is truly a neighborhood gem. I lived a couple of blocks away for ten years and never went there. A friend introduced us to it six months ago and I have been there ten time since. It is a basic Italian food spot, specials are the same week after week. But that is fine as everything is what you... More

It is no easy matter for a restaurant to serve a table of 16 with varying tastes, but Canaletto did it with aplomb and taste. Every left raving about the flavors and highly-satisfied with the service and setting. From meat-eaters to those fond of fish or preferring vegetarian fare, Canaletto delivered beautifully.

I just had dinner in Canaletto. I had Minestrone soup, Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe and Tiramisu. The soup was very good, the spaghetti so-so and the tiramisu just OK. When receiving the bill I noticed that the spaghetti were invoiced at $25, while they were advertised at $16. I warned the maitre about this. He asked in what menu I... More

Visited Canaletto with good friends. Service was polite and professional. The kitchen was very accommodating. Prices are fair and reasonable. I'm glad I found Canaletto. I needed a good venue in this part of town. Classic NYC Italian. I'd rather visit here than over-priced, dated unimpressive places such as il Mulino.

Surly wait staff. Bored. Speak so quickly it's hard to understand them. Accent also difficult to understand. Food preparation and presentation lousy. Too many excellent other excellent Italian restaurants nearby to put up with this bunch. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

This restaurant is by far the best one I have reviewed by far. Not because of any one thing done well but how well they did everything. We happened on this place by accident and walked in without a reservation on a weeknight. We were greeted immediately and seated within 2 minutes. We were greeted by the wait staff and... More

Went on a quiet Monday night. Friendly, attentive staff. Excellent straight up martini. Great puttanesca pasta followed by delicious medallions of veal piccata and tiramisu split 4 ways. Everything one hopes for in a neighborhood restaurant. Not expensive either.

Had a great meal with friends. My lunch portion of the Lobster Salad was totally amazing. My husband had pasta with chopped sausage and our friend had swordfish....all wonderful. Our server Sammy was attentive and friendly. The two-hour lunch was relaxing in this chic place. We definitely will go back!

Lovely jewel across the street from Bloomingdales. Ask about the Risotto and even the old fashioned spaghetti and meatballs is good. Brought the family and the kids loved the Meatballs, the grown ups had chicken, and veal. Nice atmosphere.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
