Rotterdam has so many Italian restaurants, and canali's sticks out as one of the best. the food is awesome. The only criticism i have is that the atmosphere is a bit dark and hasn't been updated. But, the food is really delicious and they have many wonderful options.

Great old school Italian place. Apparently it's been around in the same family for decades. HUGE portions! Everyone in there was walking out with to-go trays. I ordered the lasagna. Easily four to five inches tall and at least three pounds. Enough food to serve a small family. Great rich, and real, "sauce" as it was properly referred to. Very... More

I've been going to Canali's for over 20 years. It is the best local casual Italian restaurant in the area. My favorite dishes are the chicken marsala, chicken cacciatore, and manicotti (1 meatball, 1 sausage). The bread that they get from a local bakery is so yummy. And you can't go wrong with the salad with house dressing. It gets... More

Wait person stressed they are happy to customize dinners but when asked to omit garlic from a veal dish was told to order something else. Another party of 8 was seated next to us, wait person moved chair next to my husband so... More
