Chef-owner Francesco Torre sources as many of their ingredients as possible from local farmers, butchers, ranchers and foragers. Chef Torre’s passion for quality is apparent in his food. Everything is made from scratch in house; from the focaccia bread to the pastas to the cured meats and desserts. I have not had a dish at Canneti that I have not... More

Canettie's Roadhouse Italiana is a wonderful experience. Francesco makes the most delicious meals which are creative and traditional. Eating in the back courtyard is extra special while choosing between a great selection of both local and Italian wines.

We always assume that people have some common sense. You asked Canneti's staff to prepare a cake..to void surprises we kindly advise you to ask the price of things you purchase...and 192 $ for a walnut cake stuffed with amaretto custard freshly made in the house for 16 guests costs 12$ a portion..so we don t understand what the complain...

This small town is not on most foodies radar but should be due to this gem. We ate outdoors in their covered patio and felt like we were back in Italy. The dinner was excellent we had the Marconi with Tuscan meat sauce and Salmon wrapped in a Tobacco leaf. The service was wonderful. Our only complaint was the onerous... More

Hello This is Francesco replying you. Thank you for your kind review! I wish to explain the corkage: there are many factors contributing to the corkage fee: Canneti Roadhouse offers sommelier service and beautiful high quality glassware. The wine list also features many local and Italian wines for every palate and and at very reasonable prices..in fact you will pay... More

The celebration of my Italian mother's 99th birthday began with our family being seated in the serene setting under the redwoods with dappled lighting at a table set simply waiting for us. Our server was Kate and she greeted us with being helpful in escorting my mom to the table and immediately offering us refreshments. Our party of 17 traveled... More

We loved our dinner experience at Canneti. Food: beautifully thought out and prepared local ingredients with an Italian flair, fresh and in season. We started with the asparagus shot and it set the mood for the rest of the dinner, a perfect starter. We tried the trio of pastas (always one each of vegetarian, seafood and meat) the vegetarian main... More

I really missed the resteraunt that used to be in the same space. I hoped this would be good, but alas, i was sorely dissapointed. It started as we entered, we were asked for resrervstions. Although the resteraunt was nearly empty, we were seated in a tight, hot space. After a few minutes our order was taken. We got our... More

Hello We are very sorry your experience with us was disappointing. Canneti has been busy all week and it sounds strange your food was delayed if there was so few guests. All we can guess is that the patio was busy..sometimes guests are not aware we have a back patio as well. This does not excuse the poor service you... More
