Description: In the summer of 1964, Giacinto and Laura Marinelli and their four sons...
In the summer of 1964, Giacinto and Laura Marinelli and their four sons Nicola, Vincenzo, Gabriele and Ugo, established the Four Brothers Restaurant on Ferry Street. In keeping with the old country's taste and traditions, they quickly asserted their cooking skills to create a prosperous restaurant business. In good time, Four Brothers became a staple in Niagara Falls, winning over the community one taste bud at a time. Eventually, Giacinto and Laura handed the business down to their sons, who each took control during various periods. Over time, Ugo acquired the restaurant and became sole proprietor. With his love for good food, his charisma, and his gracious hospitality to his dining patrons, Ugo accomplished his lifelong dream of owning one of the finest restaurants in Niagara Falls. In 1982, Ugo married his soulmate, Michelle. Joining forces, they presented their patrons with a first- rate dining experience. Four Brothers Cucina has continued to succeed due to the insistence of fresh, premier quality ingredients coupled with personal homemade touches. The establishment has remained a landmark. Sadly, in 1984 Ugo passed away suddenly, which left Michelle with the responsibility of the restaurant and caring for their infant son, Michael. The Marinelli family stepped in to assist Michelle during this difficult time. With strength and courage, the help of family and friends, as well as the staff at Four Brothers, Michelle was able to keep her late husband's dream alive and well. Today, the Four Brothers Restaurant continues to flourish, as both local residents and tourists experience the fine art of traditional Italian cuisine and a family-oriented dedication to food and service. The atmosphere at the Four Brothers is like a quaint family restaurant in Italy. "I serve my guests as I would my own family. I get fulfillment and satisfaction in seeing patrons who frequently return to dine at the Four Brothers" says Michelle. Michelle, along with her son Michael and her loyal staff (some with over thirty years of dedication to the restaurant) strive to continue the custom of offering fine Italian food and superior service to all their guests. With an excellent reputation for authentic Italian cuisine, Ugo's memory and dream live on through the Four Brothers, all amidst other restaurants in Niagara Falls.

Met up with friends in Niagara Falls last week and decided to try this Italian restaurant which is located off the main streets and away from the busier part of the city.

An authentic Italian meal consisting of bruschetta, mixed green salad with house dressing, spaghetti with two delicious meatballs, topped off with a caramel crunch meringue dessert was enjoyed. The waitress was personable and we enjoyed talking to her. The restaurant is clean and well maintained. A great place to eat while visiting Niagara Falls, Canada.

Stopped in for dinner with my daughter on the recommendation of a friend who had recently travelled to Niagara Falls. Very impressed with the friendly service — they kept an eye on us but we did not feel rushed . It looked to be a small restaurant and it was bustling when we arrived at 7:00. If I was to... More

LOVE This restaurant. Went for a quick lunch out of the office for an early bday lunch and it was amazing. Quick and efficient even with a large group in. We both had the sampler and it was beyond enough food!

Visit Four Brothers Cucina for some great Italian delights. Reasonable priced, this restaurant offers good wine parings. It has excellent wine options from local vineyards. This restaurant is a must-eat in Niagara Falls, especially among the large amount of unhealthy chains.

We stumbled upon this restaurant while walking around the Clifton Hills neighborhood and were so glad we found it! It's a real deal Italian restaurant - not the typical touristy garbage that you find elsewhere in Niagara Falls. The dining room is well appointed, modern, and has a very elegant feel. The food is great - I had the gnocchi... More

With all the fast food and "junk" restaurants in the Niagara Falls area, we were happy to find Cucina. Although the wait staff was really grumpy (older gent), the food was good and the prices were right.

Family owned Italian eatery. The food was good: we had the lasagna, which wasn't cheap. I wanted a salad, but that was not included. Our meal with drinks and dessert came to 100.00 for two.
