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.

Good homemade Italian food

Went to the restaurant at 5:30 on a Saturday night. It was busy but not packed. We immediately felt an intimate, cosy atmosphere. This was clearly a family-owned restaurant and not based on a chain. We ordered soup, ceasar salad and garlic bread as appetizers. They were all good...not... read more

My family and I came here for my Nonna's birthday. Needless to say, she was not impressed with the Italian cooking. The entire menu is pasta, with a select few meat dishes. Nonna had the lasagna with veal, which was probably the best thing on the menu...except it just wasn't right. Everyone else had pasta, I had the chicken. No... More

4 of us went for dinner on a Saturday night. It was around 6:30. We didn't have a reservation, but we were seated right away. Danielle was our server and she rocked!

Glad we stumbled upon this restaurant. Great servers who are friendly and helpful with food recommendations. We had the spaghetti, homemade lasagna, and the bruschetta which was amazing. The food was truly incredible and coupled with the live music it was a great experience.

My wife and I use to go to Four Brothers years ago for the dinner special, which they still have, and frequently for lunch. We went back about two weeks ago with a group of 14 friends for dinner on a Sunday evening. They were fairly busy but they put us in a separate room on the ground floor which... More

Many of our 35 anniversary diners have been at the 4 Brothers. Real food prepared by people who care what the serve. My wife's favorite place to eat. Never ever disappointed. House red with the Lasagna. Give it a try.
