The founders of Il Fornaio have designed Canaletto to stand as the ideal
Venetian ristorante. Executive Chef Maurizio Mazzon - a native of Venice -
and Chef/Partner Alfonso Sanna have blended their expertise to unleash a
gourmet fantasy at Fashion Island in Newport Beach.
Menu highlights include an abundant selection of fresh seafood from
Canaletto's own "Mercato del Pesce," rotisserie and grill specialties, and a
variety of risotto preparations and housemade pastas each day. A silver tray
bearing traditional Venetian breads begins your meal and desserts created on
the premises complete your Venetian culinary experience. The carefully
selected wine list featuring little-known wines of Italy's northeast
includes a special section devoted to Prosecco, the Italian grape cultivated
throughout the Veneto.
