Jimmy and Lasinda welcome you to come in to their cozy-family feel restaurant and try some of their signature dishes like Lasagna, Linguine & Clams or their signature Italian Margarita to name a few. Check out their warm and quiet patio seating too!
We were in town with a friend, and she suggested Cranelli's. Really nice place. Comfortable, and not pretentious. The staff here is really friendly, including the owner. The food is spot on. I judge an Italian restaurant the first time based on the Chicken Parmesan. They don't disappoint. Their sauce is spectacular. I'll make the 46 mile trip again.
What a phenomenal Italian restaurant! The staff and the owner are amazing. Lasinda the owner was so nice came over and talked with us and just made us feel like we where have a meal at the kitchen table in her home. From the gal how made our reservation to the gal that waited on us. They had a customer first attitude. Now to Jimmy the other half came at the end and just was so pleasant to talk with and has a great sense of humor. Highly recommend this restaurant. If you want delicious fresh and hot food. Look no further. We will for sure be back. I found my new Italian food!
Today I was looking for a place with a good atmosphere and good food, and I tried out Cranelli's Italian Restaurants. I had a glass of Meiomi Cabarnet, well 2 glasses with the sausage and peppers for an appetizers. Then the main course was Linguine Carabona. It was DEVINE!
My mood walking in was truly gray, but now, I am happy golucky and completely satisfied. Jason and Lasinda, thank you truly for the awesome food and amazing hospitality. I will be back.\(^-^)/ Oh, and the music had me jamming to Ole skool.
What a gem! A little Italian restaurant nestled in a community that has fantastic food and outstanding service! My daughter loves liguini with clam sauce but she doesn't like the heavy cream style, the sweet server suggested she substitute the aglio sauce and it was PERFECT! The tiramisu is absolutely decadent!
I have heard from numerous people how great their food is. Couldn't agree more. Great atmosphere. Great food. 10/10 Pictured was their half plate of lasagna, and it was fantastic!
Fantastic Italian spot. I stopped in for lunch craving some nice pasta and had their Chicken Genovese paired with a nice white wine. The atmosphere is fancy and the service was perfect. If you're in for treating yourself check it out!
Love love loved this place. The pizza has a perfect crispy thin crust. Toppings were excellent. Place was packed on a Saturday night but we got excellent service after a 15 minute wait. Asked for a mocktail and they were more than accommodating and came up with a yummy fruity drink. Will come back for sure.
Absolutely delicious food here! My boyfriend and I loved the bolognese pasta and lasagna! I also recommend the garlic knots for an appetizer. Check this place out. You won't be disappointed!
