Canaletto Ristorant Veneto features authentic Italian food made from scratch inspired by the region of Veneto. Breads from the Il Fornaio bakery along with Il Fornaio extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar begin each meal. Seafood, rotisserie and grilled meats, poultry and game are our specialties. Sliced-at-the-moment salami and fresh oysters from the “Mercato”. Risotto made the traditional Italian way. Housemade and imported pastas, pizzas from an oak wood-burning oven, fresh salads and soups, seasonal antipasti and a wide variety of desserts offer guests a wide selection of foods suitable for any dining occasion. <br />Our full bar features a selection of Italian and domestic wines, with an emphasis on wines from the “Tre Venezia” area of Italy (Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino-Alto Adige). Extensive prosecco list as well as many grappa, spirits and after dinner drink selections.

"Four of us dined after all day traveling. We had a good, quiet table. The food was okay but not spectacular. Most of us left some and no one raved about their entrees. It was very close to the Island Beach Hotel where we were staying so that was one of the reasons we chose it."

This James Beard Award winning restaurant with a clientele as diverse as San Francisco opened in 1979. A vibrant Parisian-style standing-only copper bar greets you as you enter on Rose Alley. Zuni's menu changes daily with dishes inspired by traditional Italian and French recipes. Nearly all of the produce, meat, and fish served at Zuni is farmed and harvested in a sustainable manner. <br /><br />Even without a reservation, bar tables are available on a first come, first served basis and the full menu is available. The bar also serves traditional cocktails made with top-shelf ingredients; refreshments at its best in an environment of effortless hospitality. Whether you dine early or prefer to dine after theater, Zuni is a welcoming haven. <br />-Gilbert Pilgram, co-owner

"Caught an early dinner of Ahi Tuna & a Bandol Rose. My dinner companion opted for the steak and shoestring potatoes. Food is always good but not overly large portions so good for women."

"I met up with friends for brunch and found the menu pretty good for a Saturday afternoon. I had the turkey burger served with a southern twist of green tomato marmalade. We adjourned to the bar area by the fireplace for Sidecars all around."

"I wanted to have a lighter meal before going off to a turkey dinner later in the evening, so chose Level III based on their Dungeness crab cakes benedict. They were simply marvelous & so was my Piper Sonoma mimosa."
