Saying this place is small is an understatement. The restaurant only has around 7 tables and can't fit more than 20 people comfortably. The area around it isn't the best but don't let that scare you. The service and the food were fantastic!! Always love open kitchens in restaurants!!

Late in the evening we arrived just before they locked their doors, but the service and food were excellent. We shared a seafood pesto pasta entree, and each had a delicious salad. It was a great end to a long day's drive getting to Niagara!

What this place had going for it was the food. The location and atmosphere are strange, but the food made up for it the lack of ambience. During our last visit the service was mediocre, the wine list was full of cross out, the red we ordered was stored above a fridge so it was warmer than room temp. The... More

The staff was very nice and attentive. We were disappointed with the portion sizes. We had a fish fry, lasagna and baked ziti and I guess we expected a little more for $15 each. My husband asked if the sauce was a smooth sauce and we were told yes. (He is pretty picky) The sauce was definitely chucky which turned... More

The main courses are excellent. The staff is friendly and attentive. The restaurant abuts a hotel but is not a hotel restaurant.

Had to wait a short time for a table but it was SO worth it! Wonderful food, generous wine pours, and great personnal service from Phillip and his crew. Best food in Niagara by far!

Sketchy neighborhood. 8 tables in restaurant. Regardless, I would highly recommend! Quite possibly the best Italian food I've ever eaten!

Came here the other day with my girlfriend, late afternoon. We enjoyed stuffed mozzarella for appetizer, scrumptious. I had gnocchi with shrimp in garlic sauce, delectable. She had lobster ravioli--I took a taste of the rav, and I thought it could've had a bit more lobster in it, and I think the plate may have done better without the peas,... More
