While strolling through the Grand Canal Shops at the Venetian Hotel, my fiancé hinted that he would like to try some Italian food for dinner. We finally found a restaurant called Canaletto that we both thought we might enjoy. Of course being dinner time and in the midst of Saint Marks Square during one of the music performances, the restaurant was full but we decided to put our names in and wait for a spot.Everything went smoothly, our table was ready when they said it would be and we had a great spot close to the front of the restaurant where we could look out onto the crowd of people in the square. The inside of the restaurant was simple yet elegant with rich dark woods and white linen tablecloths. The thing that I really enjoyed was the servers were professional but did seem pretentious.For dinner I decided to try their Vermicelli al Pomodoro which is an angel hair pasta dish with marinara sauce and fresh basil. My fiancé ordered their Ribeye steak. Both were excellent meals with plenty of food to spare. I loved my pasta everything about it tasted fresh. Our biggest problem was that we filled up on their tasty fresh bread and didn’t expect our meal to come as quick as it did but it all worked out. Overall our visit to this restaurant was a wonderfully remarkable night filled with great service and fabulous food. I look forward to returning to Vegas and eating their again.
