WOW!!!! Lasagna is out of this world. The noodles are home made and sooooo tender. The meatballs will make you want to come back for seconds. Perfect night and wonderful service. We were visiting Niagara Falls form Tennessee and asked for some good Italian food. Frado's was reccommended and we were not dissapointed.

This is a family owned restaurant is very relaxing with spectacular view. The patio is overlooking the Welland Canal. We went there several times and we enjoyed our meals every time. The food is always freshly prepared from scratch. This is not a chain restaurant, nothing fancy, but very homey and cozy all year round. I adore their gnocchi!!! My... More

This is a favourite restaurant of a relative who lives in St. Catharines. Whenever we visit, this is his first choice. We went there last week and had to report how much I too look forward to dining here. Walking in to the restaurant, I noticed a bit of a "old house" smell. Don't let this deter you. It was... More

Stopped for a week day lunch - ordered the special of the day the pasta and meatballs and a veal on a bun with salad. Have to agree with other comments posted that the veal was thin but the sandwich was enjoyable. When I asked for extra sauce to dip my sandwich there was no extra charge. Their sauce is... More

Comfy family restaurant with fabulous view of the draw bridge opening and closing when tall boats sail by. We were a party of 4 had sausages with pasta, shrimps with wild rice, grilled chicken, sweet potatoes fries as appetizer, a small Caesar salad and 2 beers. Great meal with tips it was about $110. The service was efficient and great.

On a lovely June day we dined on the patio, over looking the Welland Canal. Very friendly waitress, we ordered different suppers and every one really enjoyed their meal. Great food and it was fun eating outside, watching a ship go by.

I have just returned from having dinner with my family at Frado's and it was once again, delicious! The food is, unlike what many claim here, freshly made and not out of a can (and no flies in our drinks!). I highly recommend the outdoor seating; if the timing is right, you might see ship going by and watch out... More

Went for lunch with a pal as an exploratory trip to decide if we should take our wives there for dinner at a future date..... we were not impressed. The view over the canal is the big attraction but the windows were dirtysmudgy and the furniture and rugs are tired. We both ordered veal on a bun and I asked... More
