They offer a variety of high end food choices. If you like pasta, fish or steak this is the place for you. The service is excellent and I am never disappointed. A great place for a special night out.

I enjoy it every time I go here. A gem in Windsor for sure! Service is always excellent and the food is wonderful. This is a place you go to dine. Don't be in a rush, you will want to savour every moment and every bite.

Candle light dinner, great atmosphere, very good Italian cuisine. Value is also good. Reservations required most of the time. A must try for good Italian.

Unfortunately, we went on a friend's recommendation. Apparently, it's best years are in the rear view mirror.

The best restaurant Windsor has to offer for over 20 years. I have never heard of a bad experience. I can't wait to go back again.

We made reservations for dinner at the Cook's Shop before a performance at Caesar's Windsor. We were caught in awful traffic coming through the tunnel that made us over a half an hour late for our reservation. We called the restaurant and they were very gracious about holding our table. The waitress was very kind and welcoming and made us... More

The cook shop is a treat for us! We have amazing food here in Windsor and yet we still fantasize about our next cook shop meal. The atmosphere is beautifully lit to relax and enjoy, the service is always top notch and the food, oh the food. As soon as you walk in the door you know where you are,... More

Heard about it and it didn't disappoint... The salad was amazing- the sausage appetizer was super- then I had the most fresh tender minestrone soup plus a chicken diablo meal that was very spicy and amazing- they give I a whole chicken plus a side of pasta.... Right across the border- but old world Italy
