Restaurant Description

Canestaro Restaurant is a wonderful experience. If you want to try someplace new and local (16 Peterborough Street in the Fenway neighborhood), then check out this old favorite, because the food at Canestaro is very good. The dishes add a bit of the owner's own signature touch to old favorites. Each course is timed perfectly to arrive with just enough time in-between. Here you can enjoy a leisurely meal, without feeling rushed or waiting for the next course to arrive. The service is exceptional. The waitress makes you feel like you are old friends. The staff offers the right amount of suggestions and descriptions of the entrees. And the waitress checks back to make sure that everything is OK, without the slightest bit of our feeling like she is hovering. While the restaurant is often busy, your waitress makes you feel like you are her most important table. There are exceptional values for wines, shared appetizers, entrees and desserts. Portion sizes are quite generous at Canestaro. You will definitely visit this Fenway gem again and recommend it to others.

Joe Tecce's Ristorante  2  out of 5 stars
 While I was having dinner I heard the owner yelling in the kitchen; probably at the staff as I have heard him do on many occasions. Management seems to be very abusive to the staff; even the hostess/greeter seemed miserable when we walked in the res ...
Pat's Trattoria  4  out of 5 stars
 Amazing buffalo chicken pizza! I love a good buffalo chicken pizza and it can be tough to find one. I'm picky about it, and a lot of places make it with too much sauce or not enough chicken, and it's very easy for it to become pretty lousy. I gave Pa ...
