In May of 2000, the original owners of Brampton's first pizza and pasta houses opened Canelli's Italian Eatery. The Brampton landmark, Queen's Pizzeria, was known for serving traditional Italian recipes, quality ingredients and hosting service. Queen's is now a nameplate in Brampton's history and remembered by many. Canelli's has filled the hearts of people looking for quality, homestyle Italian food. Our menu hosts a variety of antipasti, classic pasta dishes, homemade pizzas, seafood, grilled meat and fresh dessert. We pair traditional classics with an extensive beer and wine list, for a perfectly balanced meal. Our pizza dough, sauces, dressings and selection of desserts are made in-house staying true to the classic recipes that founded Queen's Pizzeria. Ask around and many residents of Brampton will remember the Volkswagen Beatles that zipped around town delivering piping hot dinner. Knowing that people still appreciate traditional, quality food, Canelli's offers classics with a more...

    Food and price awfull

    Was here on a Sunday for dinner only 4 pople in the place. Ordered special chicken. It came one leg with cup of penne $21.95 he chicken had a sauce that was rancid and the penne in a bottled sauce. Young woman cooking and a chinese waiter. I don't know where the good reviews come from. The restaurant has a nice decor.

    Always good

    This place has the best Penne A la Vodka I've ever had. Everything on the menu that I've tried is great. This is one of my go-to places for Italian in Brampton. Next time I want to try the Pizza.

    Our waiter was run off his feet due to short staffing on the long weekend. I think the attendance was underestimated but he was a real trooper and managed to keep up. I'm sorry we forgot his name but we commented he looks like Roberto Alomar. He was friendly and courteous as he always is. We have been coming to Canellis for years and are never disappointed. Our friends enjoyed it too.

    I bought the dinner in Groupon, We were not treated well , i guess since the waitress knew that we were using a discount meal. Anyways still gave her a nice tips,we should have given her more, coz the purpose of buying there discounted dinner,is to give the server what we had save from original price. Too BAD.

    I'm really afraid to give this restaurant too good of a rating and as a result it will get very known and it will start to get too busy for us to go and enjoy our visits without being too busy, but I just have to. Great service and food and prices are very reasonable. Keep up the good work.

    The food and the atmosphere were OK. They brought our main courses before we had our appetisers, so we sent them back. We had to ask for cutlery. They eventually brought us our appetisers one by one. We had to ask for the cutlery and side plates. We had to then ask for our main meals. They forgot one of the main meals had to ask again. They didn't remake the meals they just reheated the food. I felt like I was eating leftovers.

    I have never been so disappointed, the veal was sooo tough and flavourless and the lasagna was dry, so much pasta etc. Special was $27.00, too much for what it was! Sorry we won't be back.

    We've been to this restaurant several times and the food is always consistent and delicious. They often have deals on Wagjag, so $15 gets you $30 worth of food, so this can be helpful to decrease the cost of your bill I usually get seafood (mussels, grilled calamari, or pesce alla griglia) since I don't make it at home. Our visit on Saturday I ordered pesce alla griglia and it was delicious and perfectly cooked. Friends ordered antipasto mediterraneo and calamari fritti to share, and both dishes were delicious. The calamari comes with two dipping sauces, which would appeal to various tastes. The antipasto has a really nice selection and would be perfect as a meal unto itself. My husband ordered veal parmigiana and the portion was huge....a doggie bag was required. My friend and I split tiramisu, which was quiet large and very tasty. There would be no way that either of us could have finished that on our own. The only small downside on this visit was our waitress wasn't attentive and didn't come back to refill drinks. When she brought the bread she only brought butter, and didn't bring oil and vinegar for dipping until most of us already finished. She seemed inexperienced and was quite busy in her section so perhaps she was overwhelmed. I overheard her mention to someone in our group (there was nine of us) that the tip was already included on the bill (which I disagree with), but she didn't mention it to me or my friend. I wouldn't have noticed that so thankfully I overheard and was able to tell my friend.

    Food and service were good, no complaints. The calamari appetixer was very good, the pizza was good but nothing special. Food is similar to chain type "Italian" restaurants. I prefer a place that has a chef/owner who is Italian for better quality food.

    We showed up early for a reservation and were understandably made to take an inferior table to the one we would've had. Our seating didn't necessarily contribute to a good date in the way's that Canelli's food and wine certainly did. Our server was courteous and attentive. Altogether, a good experience and a pleasant beginning to a great New Year's Eve.

    Nice quaint restaurant and the food was delicious. Unfortunately the service was poor however our server had just started the job. But, we weren't given lunch menus first (just thendinner menu), then the lunch menu had no prices, then we were asked about a side salad with the meal which apparently wasn't part of the meal. There was a big extra charge for the salads that we ordered. Then the worst part was that the food Came out after an hour! We asked them for some bread in the meantime but it was a ridiculously long wait for the "express lunch" menu! When we nicely told the waitress about all these hiccups nothing was done to compensate us. It was our first experience at this restaurant and since it's so close to our workplace we thought it would be a great place but given their timeframes and poor service we can't consider it as a regular place to dine at lunch.

    We were at Canelli's for my mother-in-laws birthday and it was a lovely meal. Great food & service and they provided us with a huge piece of Tiramisu on the house with a candle and the waiter even sang along with us. I highly recommend Canelli's for any occasion.

    As always the food was fantastic. The wait staff seemed to be newer and not quite as engaging with the clientele, could very well be as it was a quieter Sunday evening. Overall though very pleasant evening.
