Cold Food – First time visit. Went there because seems to be the only restaurant that have veal. The veal was warm but the noodles and the sauce were cold. The waiter never came to ask how the meal was or if I needed a refill on the drink. My wife had lasagna and was warm to cold too. Most likely wouln't go again.

One of the few good restaurants in Utah – I've been going there for over 30 years, I won't stop, It isn't always perfect, real people, real food. Once when I went there and didn't know they closed between lunch and dinner I went there and didn't notice the closed sign, got in the one of the owners sat us and served us anyway. That's the way they have been and always will be. Oh yea, the food is great too. Its a restaurant, not a food factory.

Salt Lake's Finest... – What a blessing it is to have such an authentic restaraunt still in existance in SLC after over 30years at the same location!

Cannella's must be doing alot of things right in order to have such a long lasting history in this town.

I ate at Cannella's last night! I had the most amazing Lasagna I've ever had. I love their Lasagna! ... and I love the fact that Cannella's gives you options with your Lasagna. On the dinner menu, check out Alberto's Meat Lasagna. The first time I tried it... I thought... "yeah, okay, I'll give it a try." But I was blown away with the parade of flavor that they're dishing out with that one.

Hands down... if you don't know about Cannella's. You're missing out. I always go to Cannella's with friends that don't live downtown... and everytime I see them... they say...

"hey! let's go back to that bitchen Italian restaurant

(Cannella's) you took us to!" "That place is the best!"

Not much more to say... for those of you that don't know me. I like Cannella's so much, that I typically eat there at least 4 to 5 times a week. Anyone who's a fan of Cannella's is a friend of mine! Hope ot see you there!

Cheers!

Where Everybody Knows Your Name... – We moved to Salt Lake City about four years ago and stumbled upon Cannella's after seeing the Body World exhibit at the Leonardo. Joey was our bartender and upon meeting him it was instantly like chatting with an old friend. Now everytime we come in the staff recognizes us and always says hello.

We eat at Cannellas several times a month and the service and food is ALWAYS amazing. I'm shocked to see even one poor review on here.

I even reserved the downstairs for my husband's 40th birthday party and all our friends raved about the food & our server, Missie. They allowed me to bring in balloons & table decorations and had an awesome chocolate beet cake for the birthday dessert.

The risotto cakes are always a favorite as well as the ravioli. We also love the soups, and the lasagne is an absolute staple.

We love Cannellas and are happy to have a place to call our place whether its just stopping in for a drink or sitting down for a dinner.

Gross!! – I've been a regular customer here for a few years and used to really like the Lasagna. It used to be delicious, baked with the cheese a little crispy at the edges, just right.

Well tonight I went and for whatever they have decided to serve it microwaved now. The center was COLD. I sent it back, THREE TIMES.

sorry its gross. Now I have a stomach ache. I won't be going there again.

Normally a better experience – We attempted to eat there on New Year's Eve. Despite over half the tables being empty before 630pm, we were told we couldn't be seated unless we promised "to eat fast".

We normally eat there a couple of times a month and enjoy it - I doubt we are going back.

Unique to the Market; Consistent Quality – let me say up front, i love utah...for a lot of things...one of those things is not it's restaurant culture. what is anathema to a thriving restaurant culture in utah? the customer base.

by and large, restaurant patrons in utah are enthralled with the corporate-restaurant ideal 'yes is the answer, what is the question?' just read the posts about cannellas...

cannellas really doesn't fit into the restaurant fabric of utah, and that's great. it's been able to thrive in such a harsh landscape where single-site, individually owned restaurants are not appreciated. in my opinion, its success has been due to three things: the ownership, the personality of its service employees and its fantastic food!

if you don't go cannellas expecting a 30-second table greet, you’ll wonder what the people who wrote negative reviews were thinking. embrace individuality, and take care of your local restaurants; visit cannellas!

A Salt Lake classic – My friends and I frequent Cannella's for get-togethers, meetings, and parties. I've also brought work groups here for lunch.

The food is always delicious - I love the tortellini with sausage and chicken in the vodka sauce. The staff is always accommodating and never complain when we stay late or get rowdy.

I'm an East Coast transplant and this restaurant would be a hit anywhere, from the North End of Boston to Little Italy in New York. We're luck to have Cannella's here in Salt Lake.

I really like it! – I am so confuse by the reviews here. I am from NY where Italian food is everywhere, and it's great. I have enjoyed every meal here, and we eat here very often. My husband also enjoys the food here. I find it flavorful and not at all like processed food! I think the salad could use more types of lettuce, but has lots of veggies, those yummy beets and the house dressing is killer. I love the cheese and bread plate. I often order specials or chicken picatta, also the ravioli. They are always great. I also love Cucina Tuscona, Rino's and Lugano's for Italian, and I think that Cannella's is very good.

Not worth it – I do not recommend this restaurant. The salad was plain lettuce leaves and the waitress did not get us dressing even when we asked twice. It was a little busy, but thats still no excuse. My hubby got a sandwich and I got an angel hair pasta dish. Both entrees were very bland. What a waste of money!!
