Heavenly Gelato

Went with the grandkids and tried the gelato - really delicious and creamy gelato. Also tried the chocolate chip shortbread cookies - yummy. Next time we will go around meal time and try the yummy looking crepes...........

One of the best! Beautiful inside, clean and of course yummy! Lemon is really refreshing, but chocolate is rich and satisfying

During a recent visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake, we picked up sandwiches and some pastries "to go" at Nina's. The sandwiches were terrific: fresh ingredients and pleasing combinations -- but the pastries were AMAZING! Beautiful, huge and luscious. Truly the *best* raspberry lemon danishes that I have ever encountered. We will definitely return here during our next visit to NOL.

Our 9 year old scouted all the ice cream and gelato shops in NOL before choosing Nina's. The flavors are more unique than what the other stores offer and it rivaled the gelatos I've had in Italy. Pastries are sumptuous as well.

The gelato is wonderful with a wonderful array of choices. Even when you order a small serving, you get a lot and you have the opportunity to order two flavors. The chocolate croissants were as good as any I have ever had in Paris. The shortbread cookies, a specialty of the shop, melt in your mouth. The lemon shortbread cookies... More

We went to Italy a couple summers ago, and I can honestly say the gelato at Ninas is better than any we had in Italy. Their other treats are to die for as well!

We found the gelato absolutely delicious, and the service was quick and helpful. It is NOT inexpensive, so if you are budget conscious, this is not your best option.

Really, really the best gelato we've had since visiting Italy! Chocolate, Nutella, Hazelnut, many good choices... Yummy! Also, the tiramisu was fresh, balanced, creamy smooth and just just of this world. Oh yeah, the food that made the "OMG" reaction: The Hazelnut Chocolate Macaron... Crispy outside, light & airy inside, with chocolate filling - a chocolate hazelnut cloud. The best... More

We visit at the end of the afternoon, taking a break of wine-tasting. Husband wanted a coffee and a croissant. They even brew fresh coffee for mum, but the chocolate croissant was on the dry-side (we are lucky enough to have a belgian pastry shop close to our home, and since tasting their croissants, most of the rest do not...

Downtown NOTL is packed with gelaterias & bakeries inbetween all the Shaw buildings. I haven't tried the others, but I definitely recommend going here. My boyfriend and I had a gelato craving and wanted to have a nice night out so, after reading a few reviews, and cancelling out any closed shops this was the obvious choice. It was a... More
