About Us

Julie Yanni-Cannataro grew up working in her parent’s Italian restaurant where she learned all her families’ recipes from Calabria, Italy. She dreamed of owning her own restaurant someday as she raised three beautiful children: Ashley, Mike, and Dominic.

One night, while the family was sitting at the dinner table enjoying another spectacular meal she had prepared, the children said to her, “You need to open your own restaurant, so everyone will know what a great cook you are.” 

With her family’s encouragement, Julie found just the right place for Cannataro’s Italian Restaurant in Chino on Mountain Avenue and began creating what guests know and love today.

Julie and her team invite you to step inside, relax, and enjoy some of her family’s favorite dishes!
