Great pizza!

The Rex has been a pizza favourite back to my college days and after 30 years they still make one of the best pizzas in Welland. they aloes have other Italian food which I vow to try but once I get in there I just order the great pizza!

Order a tray of pizza and be taken back in history. Real ingredients real cheese and secret sauce. I order with a bit of extra sauce and cooked a minute longer. The Rex served thin slice pizza long before anyone knew what it was. Your only regret is that you couldn't stop eating.

I agree it could use a facelift - but there is something to be said for the bare bones, just a great place to be. I disagree that it is not a family restaurant. It is OUR families #1 choice. No entertainment for little kids, sure but pizza and wings is unmatched in my opinion. (eat in is the best... More

Rex Pizza is famous in Welland and area for its excellent pizza, decent wings, and overall good Italian food. A visit during the Christmas season to the King's Room (the supposedly family friendly room for casual dining) proved to be a lesson in King Street hospitality, however. For starters, we were seated at a dirty table. I literally brushed bread... More

This is our local 'go to' restaurant for Italian food, pizza and wings. We've been going here for over 50 years. The atmosphere leaves something to be desired but you'll never get a bad meal. Staff is friendly and service is efficient. Prices are reasonable. The reputation for pizza and wings is well deserved.

The pizza and wings are amazing! The building is very old and the location is not the best but local people go to the Rex for pizza and wings.

Nothing fancy here just a good place to drink beer and watch the game or bet the horses. They have off track betting if you are interested.

They make the best pizza. Their veal Parmesan is also very good. We usually go for pizza and wings but everything else on their menu is good.

We have been patrons for close to 60 years, and the REX is the benchmark against which we measure ALL Italian food. We are ex-pats living in Cambridge, and make up any excuse we can to come to the peninsula so we can go to the REX! All we can get in Cambridge is the cardboard and ketchup they try... More
