My wife and I were in the area and noticed this big sign that said Italian food. We couldn't resist and decided to try them out. Started with calamari fritti and caesar salad. They were both very good. My wife had a lasagna which was perfectly cooked and the Lamb shank was out of this world. It melted in your... More

This was the first time we have been here. When we first walled in it looked so dark and dated but we thought ok we will give it a shot. Worst mistake ever. My daughter only could eat 1 bite of her lasagna and I could don't eat any of the spaghetti. The red sauce is absolutely by far the... More

We've been to this restaurant several times and the food is always consistent and delicious. They often have deals on Wagjag, so $15 gets you $30 worth of food, so this can be helpful to decrease the cost of your bill I usually get seafood (mussels, grilled calamari, or pesce alla griglia) since I don't make it at home. Our... More

Food was mediocre, really nothing special! We were very disappointed as it was my mom's 83rd birthday and we based our restaurant decision on reviews that were posted on tripadvisor! The food was edible however based on the price they charged I was expecting something fantastic. It started when we entered the restaurant and there was only 1 table occupied... More

We always enjoy dining at Canelli's, but don't always get the time to write a review every time we go. Great food, nice atmosphere and Alex has to be one of the bet waiters in Brampton.

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!

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.
