Dining room at Canaletto, Las Vegas, NV

Canaletto Restaurant Review

: Another concept from the creative minds behind the Il Fornaio trattoria, this eatery offers a Venetian menu served beside the ersatz Grand Canal and St. Marks Square of The Venetian’s indoor re-creation of Italy. The view from its 300-seat patio includes the square's lively shows. The open kitchen, with a marble counter and big-flame pizza oven, dominates the back of the restaurant, designed for cozy dining. A winding staircase takes guests to a mezzanine with a plush reception room, a sparkling marble-topped bar, five rooms to accommodate private parties, and views of the shops and square below. Among starters, we like the house-cured smoked swordfish carpaccio with sliced fresh artichoke, as well as the Tuscan melon with thinly sliced prosciutto, Parmigiano-Reggiano and balsamic reduction. Try the calzone filled with mozzarella, mushrooms, ricotta, ham and tomato sauce. The risotto with shrimp, scallops, brandy and black squid ink is a winner. Also try the lamb chops with mint sauce, served with organic spinach and roasted Yukon Gold potatoes. Save room for the Treviso-style tiramisu and the chilled zabaglione with baicoli cookies, fresh berries, Bellini sorbet and whipped cream.

Disappointment in Las Vegas
by fc1668 on Thu Jan 31, 2008 4:36 pm
It was my birthday last Sunday and we went to Canaletto Ristorante Veneto in the Venetian at St Mark's Sqaure in the evening. There were the two of us and we ordered 2 soups and the Piatto Canaletto. The soups were ok but we were so very disappointed that the Piatto Canaletto was very unprofessional prepared. The oysters were NOT fresh and had a very bad odor!! The bundle of fibres were still attached inside the mussels. We identified the problems to our server. She asked if we were done with the dish and wanted to remove the dish. We requested to speak to the manager. The manager came and we told him about the problem. He courteously gave us a discount on the dish when he saw the fibres attached to the mussel. They gave us a dessert with a candle lit up for my birthday. I try to keep thinking positively and not wanted to ruin my b-day evening. We chose a restaurant listed us "fine dining" and they let us down. If for any reason they don't have fresh seafood to serve that day, they should just said they don't have that dish available that night. They should not have served sub-standard quality food to their customers.
