Born in Ragusa, Italy, Cannata studied acting while growing up in her native Sicily. She started early on to play leading roles in several stage plays, some of which based on works by Luigi Pirandello (Liolà), Euripides (The Trojan Women) and Arthur Schnitzler (La Ronde). In 1999 she made her film debut in The Man-Eater directed by Aurelio Grimaldi.

Cannata has also appeared in numerous television series throughout her career.

Un caso di coscienza is now in its fifth season. She was cast in the 2005-2006 Italian edition of Strictly Come Dancing. She came back to the movies in 2012 with "Magnifica presenza", directed by Ferzan Ozpetek and "The Early Years" directed by Paolo Sorrentino in 2015.
