Truly phenomenal food and service. The seafood risotto special should be a main feature. One of the best meals we’ve had at your restaurant and each time we’re amazed, but some how you keep raising the bar and our appetites for more.

Service was excellent. Not too pushy and not too buddy buddy. Just right. Food was fresh and the 6 of us loved the experience. Cheers 🥂

This was our first time dining at Cano and we will definitely be going back. The food was fabulous, service was perfect, and the owner took the time to not only serve us, but share his incredible story of how Cano became a reality. Can’t wait to go back!

Modern and quaint restaurant with great ambience. Our server was wonderful. The gnudi pomodoro with buratta was delicious as was the rigatoni and the polpetta.

This restaurant is a neighborhood gem!

Excellent menu with so many interesting choices. The kale salad with pine nuts and pecorino and the gnudi pomodoro are my favorite selections. The wine list is small but offers many good choices at moderate prices. The service is very attentive and friendly. The decor is ordinary, but that does not detract from an overall wonderful experience.

Service excellent
Some problems noted with our food
1. Many mussel shells were empty- kitchen sent out another bowl full to compensate

2. Seafood pasta dish- came room temperature and skimpy on the included seafood- we sent it back and it returned hot- taste was 5 star!!!!

Wonderful restaurant I will be back. The food was excellent I hate the bread to start, one of the best breads I’ve ever had. It was served warm with melted butter & the crust was amazing!!! Also shares the rice balls which were also delicious. The mushroom truffle pasta was also a hit but I personally don’t like my gnocchi to be made soft, I like it more firm. I would still order that dish and change the pasta. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The space is beautiful with a sophisticated ambience. Dim lighting, great music that’s not too loud, and comfy seating. The food blew all of us away. The homemade gnudi is delicious and I’ll definitely be coming back for more. And the value is incredible — we were surprised by how cheap our bills seemed!

Restaurant is modern and cute.
We had a LARGE Caesar salad and grilled calamari. Both were excellent! Then my husband had a pasta. Delicious! I had the special—pistachio crusted halibut. Vegetables were crisp and perfectly cooked. Will definitely be back! Service was very good!

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.

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.

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.
