We went to Cliffy's based on the great reviews. I have never been in such a terrible restaurant for years. The restaurant has absolutely no atmosphere and the food was tasteless. The cheese pizza had no taste. The veal Parmesan was of poor quality and also no flavour with a bunch of gook piled on top of it. I had... More

My husband and I dropped in for the first time and had a panzerotti each. Absolutely delicious with a crust that was almost the same as what my husband's Italian grandmother used to make! Thoroughly enjoyed it along with the friendly service and quaint atmosphere. Already planning to go back again!

I eat here at least once a month. The food is excellent, with a lot of choice. It's a small place, but a hidden gem. They gave nice wine and beer too and serve delicious little bread rolls! Don't eat here if you're on a hurry, but the food is worth waiting for. (They also have a pizza takeaway too.)... More

My husband and I were here for the first time last week and already have reservations made for this Saturday. Amazing homemade food with an Italian and Portuguese influence. The bread is amazing (little buns), the server was very pleasant and engaging. From the outside if you didn't know it was there you might miss it but once inside it... More

This is our favourite place to eat in the city. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is charming! Elsa is the most gracious host! It is like eating a meal prepared for you with all the love that your Nonna would serve you! Brantford's best kept secret

This unassuming cozy restaurant justifies the adage, "don't judge a book by it's cover". From the outside you may think it is just another local pizza place but when we ventured in, we discovered the most wonderful restaurant we have ever found. Cliffy's has become our home away from home. It is a warm inviting atmosphere run by a family... More

Cliffy's Pizzeria is way more than just pizza, folks! They serve a good assortment of Italian, and also Portuguese dishes on the menu. Always have delicious choices on the Daily Special board too. Meals are generous-sized portions...and their Panzerotties...oh my goodness!! Service is excellent and friendly, and the restaurant is always very clean, - a big plus! Wines are reasonably... More
