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

My husband and I fell upon this place a year ago and it has turned into one of our favorite places to eat. Every dish on the menu is fabulous. She cooks with love and it shows in both presentation and taste. Absolutely amazing and authentic Italian cuisine. The service is equally as enjoyable. They are all very friendly, knowledgable...

I liked the quaint mix of quiet elegance (inside) & informal dining (outside). Loved both! Food is great, prices are reasonable. We had our work's Christmas dinner there about 3 years ago as well, and they did not disappoint. You can definitely book a private party and have it done to a T at this place. Kudos!

Joanna, the chef and owner ensures you have an amazing experience. Food was excellent and service equally as good. Highly recommend. Only outdoor patio on Erie street with a pizza oven. Cannot wait to bring our daughter out this summer, to try the pizza.

The meal was fantastic! Everything tasted so fresh, the service was very good. A young lady served us and went out of her way to make our night special; it was my husbands birthday and they brought him out there home made tiramisu which was delicious. We have already gone back, this place can't do anything wrong. It's perfect
