I placed an order for my wedding with this restaurant for about 50 people. They had my food prepared for pick up on time and the price was good. The selection was also good and the food was delicious. Everyone loved it. I would recommend this place to anyone.

We were looking for a good Italian meal and I haven't been here in a few years. It was terrific. Food and service was great as I remembered it. Had the chicken marsala. It was the best!

Had a great time at this restaurant, the food was good and the service was outstanding. They have a nice meeting room in the basement. A very nice selection of chicken, beef, fish and pasta.

A great place for special occasions. They set up a place for 10 for us (we had a reservation) that was very conducive for conversation with the whole table. The food was outstanding as usual. Lots was taken home for leftovers, I hate when that happens.

Chicken Marcella is fantastic here. A must try. The chicken is the most tenderest chicken on this earth

I love the food here. We have been coming since we were kids. The cavatelli and meatballs are my absolute favorites. Its the only thing I want when I go, no menu needed. The veal, which is another favorite at the table seems to be amazing as well. The size of the meals are enough to feed you for three... More

Service and food very good- always have at least another meal with the leftovers , and it's nice to have a restaurant that still includes salad with the meal!

Actually I went to Canali's the first time by a process of elimination. I knew of Ferrari's and decided to go back there after a long time. It was very good a year or two before. But the meal was terrible, so we decided to try the other good restaurant in the Schenectady area. I am still going there after... More

This place is simply amazing. The food is incredible and the family atmosphere is very warm. The staff was very friendly. But you come for the delicious food. It's a family owned business that's been a local favorite for years and you can tell. Everyone leaves full and with a "take home" box because they serve enormous portions. My favorite... More
