We took our family to celebrate a birthday and was very pleased with the food. It was plentiful and a wide variety of dishes. Everyone had something different so we got to see different dishes prepared. Everyone said their dishes were delicious and we got to take home leftovers to be enjoyed again. A real must in Oswego.

Wide variety of Italian dishes, seafood, and salads. Homemade sauce is delicious... chicken Parmesan very tender and lightly breaded. Eggplant Parmesan...I thought the eggplant got lost in the sauce. The garlic Italian beard with cheese is easy to eat too much and the plain Italian bread that comes with the meal is thick, soft and tasty. Also try the house... More

Great Service from Sara (that's not Italian.. but her hospitality was!) Excellent food, I had the Gnocchi, it is homemade with ricotta cheese and out of this world! Shared the marinated Artichoke hearts and never had anything quite like it. Finshied up with coffee and Terimitzu (okay, I can't spell it,) but it is truly among the best I have... More

I have been here a few times over the past couple years and the food is always consistent. The servers are very attentive and professional. I definitely would suggest this place a business lunch, date night, or anything in between.

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
