  • Gorgonzola pizza with caramelized onion is so yummy! Fried calamari was beyond my expectation! You can't compare canestaro's pizza to the one from papa johns or domino...
  • Great place to grab a bite before a Sox game. Food is fantastic and reasonable $.
  • Gorgonzola and onion pizza is yum
  • Canestaro offers al fresco dining in a quieter area away from the hustle of the North End. In addition to superb service, you'll find lobster ravioli, spinach gnocchi, & pesto-crusted salmon.
  • The bruschetta was refreshing! And I'm very happy they were able to host my friend's event for Fenway residents. The wait staff was very accommodating even though I seemed to be in the way a lot!
  • James Taylor, Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, Kansas...great music playlist. Oh yeah, food is good too. Try the Penne Milano.

  • Cute place and really good bread to dip! Sadly the service was slow (but very nice) and definitely do not get the grilled veggie sandwich - it had no flavor at all.
  • Chicken picatta yum!
  • Chicken Napoleon. Yum!
