I was visiting from out of town some close friends who recommended Gran Canal. I generally like small family run restaurants and this place demonstrated why. It's simple, friendly, and the Italian food was outstanding. Very comfortable place to enjoy friends and delicious food. When the chef/owner delivered our entrées, and thanked us, I had a clue that the dinner... More

We had a reservation at 7:30 for a party of 4 we arrived @ 7:20 and were seated @ 7:50. It took our waitress another 10 minutes to wait on us. I specifically asked about the veal piccata and veal Marsala and she recommended Marsala. It came in a very sweet red sauce almost like a General Tso type sauce... More

My friends brought us here last week for the first time and if was fabulous! They treat you like family here with the comfortable atmosphere, service and food. I had the rigatoni papalina and took some home for the next day, but it didn't make it I ate it when I got home!!! I highly recommend

Tucked away in a corner of Sharpsburg's downtown main "piazza" is Gran Canal, a true neighborhood gem. We visited last weekend for the first time, but will definitely be back: the combination of delicious food, attentive service and reasonable prices make this pleasant restaurant stand out. It's a family run restaurant, and we were made to feel welcome and valued... More

Been here several times. They always make you feel welcomed. Food ranges from decent to outstanding. Not a desert eater normally but their homemade deserts are sometimes too creative and outstanding to pass up.

Nice little caffe. Pittsburgh neighborhood done well. The places that make the pittsburgh dining scene so interesting. Local color, friends, warm reception from the lady of the establishment Antoinette. Fresh ingredients solid if not innovative. The salami, prosciutto, capicol with cheese and pickled vegetables was delicious although perhaps a second cheese offering was warranted. The cannelloni with veal and spinach... More

This is truly an excellent, family run, restaurant. Michael is an accomplished chef and he and his wife Antoinette treat you like family as soon as you walk in the door. The restaurant is divided into two small rooms plus a bar area which is very nice because all the tables are intimate and quiet so you can carry on... More
