Venetian Grand Canal Shoppes 3355 Las Vegas Boulevard S, Las Vegas Nevada, (702) 733-0070, Open 11:30 to 11:00pm every day except Friday and Saturday ti 12:00am
We visited Canaletto after a web search of many of the restaurants on the strip.  We found that a lot of restaurants in Vegas were way overpriced and selected a few before leaving home that seemed reasonable, this was one of them.
It is located in the heart of Mark's Square in the Venetian Canal Shoppes in the plaza level.

We had made a reservation and were seated at the edge of the indoor patio with a view of the plaza.  It was quite a glamorous setting.
A nice basket of bread arrived accompanied by olive oil.
We ordered a bottle of Chianti (reasonably priced compared to most Vegas restaurants).  It was smooth and had a nice flavour.
We began with an appetizer of calamari fritti (one of my favourite appetizers).  They where soft and perfectly cooked and were accompanied with a choice of white or red sauce.
My wife ordered the calves liver with polenta and really enjoyed it.
I ordered the chicken with spinach and a hot sauce that turned out to be very hot.  The chicken was enormous and was nicely coated and grilled, but the meat was a little dry.
We ended our meals without dessert since they were so substantial. Instead my wife had a nice cappuccino.
I followed with a double espresso.
Our meals were wonderful and reasonably priced in a location that was lively and pure Vegas.  The service was very spotty but the restaurant was very busy.
