Our second visit to Cano and we were not disappointed. A special surprise was a complimentary appetizer of 6 wonderful oysters on the half shell(available on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. The food was excellent and the service attentive in every way. I would recommend this small neighborhood restaurant for everyday dining or special occasions. We will be back again to sample the rest of the diverse menu.

We arrived before our reservations and were seated right away. Good service. Someone was clearing our table as soon as we finished. Delicious food. Good portions. We shared everything. And enjoyed all 4 plates. Good value. Will return many times.

This restaurant has the potential to be great, but the quality of food is so inconsistent. Some dishes were outstanding (arancini balls) while others were subpar (pizza; mussels). Service is good and the ambience is great.

Gnocchi was good, but some of the dishes such as the kale salad and the carbonara were too salty.

Generally it was good. Food was tasty and well prepared. The server could have come by more often to check in. But it was incredibly loud so that made conversation very difficult so we didn’t stay for coffee or dessert.

Cano is one of those mid city gems that once you discover, you will never forget. The food, service and overall dining experience was excellent. And our waiter Amen was such a gentleman and a pleasure to be served by him. Everything we ordered was delicious I highly recommend Cano Restaurant and hope to get back there again soon.

I'm a huge foodie. This was my first time at Cano and from the service to the food was absolutely fantastic. my mother ordered a dish she wasn't aware was spicy (she cannot handle spicy food - we should have double checked if it was spicy. lesson learned!) and the staff was super nice about taking it back and she ordered a different dish that was not spicy. the staff was so attentive, casual but in a professional manner. The charcuterie board, the polipo, and the gnudi WAS AMAZING!!! pasta was perfectly al dente. the green beans were perfectly crunchy. The atmosphere was very nice and welcoming. I could go on. I will definitely be back and recommend Cano to anyone. Keep up the great work guys!

WOW! Fortunately, we were meeting some friends who live in the area, so we discovered Cano. I wish we had discovered it earlier! Everything was spectacular. Melt in your mouth burrata as an appetizer, followed by one of the best grilled calamari plates I have ever had: the squid was so tender it practically melted in your mouth. I had the special risotto and it was one of the best dishes I have ever had: it featured scallops and shrimp, and I think the scallops did melt in my mouth! Wine list was interesting and reasonably priced - service was terrific!! We're already planning a return trip!

It's a nice place for simple dinner, service can be slow when they are understaffed but food is good, sometimes on a saltier side. Great branzino and carbonara.

Before visiting I took the time to read the reviews - I couldn't find any negative feeback and now after experiencing Cano I understand why it's so adored. The interior is warm and charming, the staff is attentive and knowledge and the food is some of the best in the city. Must trys include the pizza, and rice balls - enjoy!

Small quaint place. When it’s full it is loud. But that’s part of the ambiance. The food was outstanding. The best part is they would alter the dishes. We like are food clean with the sauces. So that was awesome. We’ll be back. Adding this one to our list of go too places.

A truly delicious meal - have the zucchini flowers! The service was impeccable and the tiramisu given two thumbs up by my Italian daughter. A bit too pricey for the portion sizes compared to other similar places but we will definitely return for special occasions!

This was a return visit for us - every dinner has been thoroughly enjoyable. Food is consistently fresh and delicious (we were a little disappointed that there was no daily special available to try). The octopus is a standout. Cocktails are great! Service is (ALWAYS) excellent - Daniel is very attentive. We will be back.
