Nina's a nice stop on a hot day

We stopped at Nina's on May 11 and had Gelato on a hot afternoon. The staff was more than willing to give us samples and we were pleased with the quality of the Gelato

Very well may be the best gelato in Canada. The lemon lime and raspberry chocolate were equally incredible. my top top is to order a medium or you'll end up like us, ordering one small after another :-)

Visting Niagara on The Lake for the day, decided to stop in as we had be told it was very good. We stood in line for a bit, the staff were nice but had some trouble trying to communicate orders between them. Excellent Gelato and I loved that we could see it being made, rather expensive but definitely worth the... More

Maybe a bit pricey, but definitely worth it once you bite into their sour cherry Danish with a very good expresso. The tiramisu was creamy and delicious. They could use more seating.

One beautiful day we were walking through the historic Old Town of Niagara On The Lake. The pretty blue awning over the store read Nina ' s Gelateria and we went inside. The store was clean and fresh with shelves full of lovely tea tins and cups. We ordered a pizza and a panini for lunch. The pizza had a... More

Wonderful flavors of gelato! I had the fig gelato had a lot of fig fruit in it and nice taste. My wife had a raspberry sorbet that also was tasty.This shop also has various pastry and savory type of sandwiches as well.

Who says you can't find good Gelato in Canada. The chocolate gelato is comparable to some I've had in Italy and that's saying something. Or you can try the sorbet. Good selection of both. I've also tried their little cheese pizza which are very tasty. Their crepes and pastries look wonderful too so I must return to try them. This... More

I went to this place with my family for some drinks/ice-cream. First of all, their selection is great, they have sorbets and gelatos, all made in house using natural ingredients. I got a fig gelato, and a passion fruit sorbet, half a scoop of each. My sister got a half scoop each of the chocolate and the hazelnut gelatos, parents... More

We had the homemade cheese pizza for the kids and the prosciutto panini for the adults. Both were absolutely fantastic. We later had the strawberry cheesecake gelato. Delicious. The only down side is that table seating is very limited: 2 tables that seat 2 and 3-4 bar stools against a side wall.

Excellent coffees and gelato. The best by far was the selection of petit four pastries. I had the lemon meringue. It was amazing. Highly recommended. Just needs more seating.
