Great Italian

Great Italian food, but in need of a makeover. It looks very dingy and dated but the food is amazing! Clams Casino and Gnochhi were perfectly cooked. The pizza was delicious. the bar could be more accommodating, but all in all a good meal!

My husband has Celiac and when we travel we are challenged to find GF AND good food. But we were amazed at what we found here. The chef came to our table and assured my husband that there would be no cross contamination and then walked through options for him. For starters he had the shrimp diablo and I ordered... More

I understand the Clark street location is closed. Only the Fonthill location open. Sorry folks- not as easy for tourists to find. But not far...just go out Lundy's Lane away from Niagara and as you approach Fonthill, about 15 min away you will see it on the right hand side amoungst a grove of trees. Same menu, same yumminess!!

i just returned from a wonderful trip to Italy and loved it! I depended on the wonderful city apps that tripadvisor provides to find the best restaurants in Rome, Florence and Venice. I always found myself, as I scrolled through the reviews, saying to my friends "Oh look! This one is written by a local!" So its time to tell... More

They have 2 locations, and the Fonthill one did not come up on Trip Advisor. We were on our way to Waterlooo from the border via back roads as we were on motorcycles. This was a charming place to stop for lunch. They have best whole grilled calamari served over a salad. Paninis were great too.

Food and service were good- nothing outstanding but good. Atmosphere is quite nice. Likely better places to go but not a bad choice either.

We were more then impressed, we are here for 4 days we have been twice and we will repeat. The best in Niagara and our server had the best attitude and service. Stephanie ?!Great girl that gave...

I am always pleased to find a place other than the MSG infused, over-salted restaurant chain miserable excuses for food. Unfortunately these independent places are becoming less and less available. This little restaurant has it all. Atmosphere, great authentic Italian food and wonderful service. I'm proud that I support these local food artists that are slowly dieing out. Will be... More

Our visit (on a weekday) was disappointing. Server was okay, a little strange, but very nice. Calamari fritti were clearly packaged and fried. They were all circles of the same size with the same thickness of breading, no tentacles. My gnocchi were also packaged and the sauce was very average. At least they used fresh basil. My boyfriend's pasta vodka... More
