We have dined here before. The food is delicious, always. But service is slow. We had pasta (spaghetti, shrimp pasta), both were excellent. But it took 45 minutes to get our appetizer (soup and salad). So if you chose to dine here, you will enjoy the food, but be prepared to wait for service.

Came with husband a few months ago and was greeted by the friendly owner. They were about to close for lunch, but were more than happy to serve us! The food was great, and the service was exceptional !

We had a groupon meal for this place, was tons of food. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the chicken Parmesan, I found it a little too dry. Classy place, perfect for a fancy date.

Go to Windsor's Little Italy on Erie Street and you will find a charming place to eat on corner of Erie and Marentette with quaint outdoor tables stretching around the corner, as well. The best Spaghetti Bolognese I've ever had, even at home. House dressing not your standard restaurant type, and beyond compare...a perfect blend of sweetness and tartness. Chef... More

Just 2 Hawaiians on a road trip passing through Windsor, Ontario. Our hotel clerk in Ann Arbor, MI recommended La Contessa and was she right on the money! Delicious food, excellent service, and very charming location. The owner/chef is so talented....yummy, yummy....molto delizioso!!! Prices are great, too. Don't miss it if you're in Windsor!!!

I was recently in Windsor for a weekend get away. I had read several reviews about Little Italy and decided I would like to try to catch a meal there. I found La Contessa and was blown away by the entire experience. The staff were amazing and the food even better! The homemade "blush" sauce and Italian dressing are to... More

My wife and I took a day trip to Canada and found by far the best Italian food I have ever had. Great service. The Caesar salad was amazing and my Lasagna was cooked to perfection. It tasted like heaven lol! Highly recommend this place.

I was in Windsor this past weekend and I had the pleasure of eating at La Contessa Ristorante. The staff were gracious and very attentive. But, most importantly, the food was fantastic! I had the Chicken Limone and was oohing and aahing with every bite. Their blush pasta sauce and home made Italian dressings are both wonderful, too! Thank you,... More

We arrived in Windsor at 5:00 pm. We asked our b&b host where we could eat. He said most restaurants in Windsor close on Mondays, but we could try Via Italia (the Italian Village). We wandered through, almost deserted, and decided on La Contessa. It looked bright and cheery. Amazing meal. My wife had the Cannaloni and would have ordered... More
