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.

Great Italian Food, Great Value

If you like authentic Italian food then this is the place for you. We took my 93 year old mother here and she gobbled up a plate of mussels and a plate of gnocchi claiming both were the best she had eaten in a long time. We hope to take here there several more times. Don't expect anything fancy... read more

Got the garlic bread and speg and meatballs. The pasta was so incredibly salty that I couldn't finish it. Was the worst I have ever had. Also had to wait FOREVER in between drink refills. The garlic bread was awful too.

This is not the same Italian food from my youth when my father took the family here for dinner. Times change and so does the food. My last visit was memorable but not in a good way. Bitter sauce, overcooked pasta and tough veal and average service. And it was not cheap.

I know this review is a little late but better late then never. A group of us visited the restaurant in mid January where we had a room off the main dining room. It was private and the service we were given was excellent. The food quality was excellent. Hot, fresh and seasoned perfectly. I would recommend this fine restaurant... More

Sadly I have lived close by my entire life and never experienced until a year ago, but have been there several times since. Each time Nona has served me herself! The traditional bruschetta is truly the best I've ever had, I would go there for that alone. Spaghetti aglio e olio has fantastic flavour, and the lasagna is great too.... More

Had the spags in meat sauce with a side of hot sausage. The food was good but $18 for a bowl of spags is a bit high. Then add $5 for a slab of hot sausage and I had to buy a small salad also. I feel at that price the salad should have been included. The food was good... More

We visit Niagara Falls at least once per year and make sure we stop in for dinner. The food is just like my mothers. The pasta prices are very good and the service great. Has always had a good meal at this restaurant.
