As one of the oldest places in Welland, the Rex know how to consistently make a good pizza and wing combo. I can actually say I have been going here for 40 years and it still taste great.

The title of my review pretty much says it all. The pizza is thin crust and is authentic Italian, Mmmmmmmmmm. The wings are a good size and just right, for me. I also love "the horses", what can I say?

I've eaten here several times in the last few years, so I guess it's about time I wrote a review! I love this place. It never changes, which some may consider a bad thing, but I don't. It may be old and well worn, but it's familiar, like coming home. Always good, friendly service (thanks, Chantelle!), decent beer and good... More

The Rex Hotel has the best Italian food around at a reasonable price. They have the best homemade gnocchi in town. Their gnocchi are made of ricotta cheese. Highly recommend the veal parmigana.

It would be nice if this restaurant updated itself somehow. The food is so-so. I saw an earlier comment about the 1970's salad bar. How true. The funny thing is that homemade salad dressing is delectable, even when it's used with iceberg lettuce. I suppose the simplicity of the menu, and the interior decor is part of the Rex's charm,...

The Rex has been a local standby for over 50 years....when you are young you go to drink and when you are older you go for the Italian. Not the best but better than most - it's the homemade red sauce everytime! At first you may think it needs a redo but keep in mind the historical aspect...there are not... More

It may not be in the best neighbourhood, or have all the fancy stylings of a chain restaurant, but man, is their food good! Everything from pizza to pasta to veal or chicken parm, they certainly don't disappoint! They also do take-out orders for those who want to enjoy their meals at home. Give it a try!

Best pizza and wings in Niagara, I would have to recommend the panzerotti and of course the veal and gnocchi, the waitresses aren't bad to look at either.
