Good wings and pizza

Really good italian style wings and pizza. The dining area could use some renovations.. music is crummy but service and food are great.

Old, dilapidated, and funky describe this place. Average pizza and wings but the rest is a no go. Veal Parm is questionable at that price? No need there so much better in Welland

It has been awhile and it will be that way until this place cleans up. It is dark and dingy with sub par food and service. People still eat hear but I'm not sure why, so much better available in town.

The Rex has been in Welland "forever"! It is a typical old fashioned hotel dingingroom/pub/bar combined with off track betting. A little something for everyone.

The rex has many different rooms to appeal to different people. But it has the best ricotta gnocchi I've ever had. I often order the veal gnocchi to go and it is enough for 2 meals for me.

Our dinner was great as always. The only thing that really bothers me about this place is that they don't promote their homemade Italian food, which is... More

My grandma was a chef there for many years back when I was younger and I had remembered it to be amazing. I suggested to my brother his girlfriend my fiancé and a close family friend to go and try it out as I hadn't been in years. Our service was okay nothing to complain about but when I found... More
