Delicious Italian Food

If I lived in niagara Falls, I would be a regular customer. We stayed at the Holiday Inn, and it was a quick 10 minute walk past some old houses. We ordered side salad and three appetizers for dinner. We loved the banana peppers, which were quite spicy. The spicy calamari was delicious also. Our... read more

Food and service was very good. I had the Eggplant Parmesan. Service was good and prices were fair. The dining area is small but clean. Parking was difficult.

Enjoyed the gnocchi, ravioli and veal and eggplant. All were very good. The service was great,they were training a new server and both were very attentive. Mark was the lead person. I get the need to turn a table but we would just be taking the last bite and the next course was being put down. Again the food is... More

My son went here with a friend during their summer road trip. They said the food was the best Italian they've ever had. They had Cheese Ravioli and Lasagna. Both were delicious. The owner, Mark, came and sat with them and had a nice conversation. The ingredients for the dishes comes right off the ship from Italy. It was a... More

What a tasty spot - the server was great the food was FABULOUS - from appetizers to entree's to desserts (lemon truffle is a MUST) The flavors were fresh and tantalizing. The place is very intimate with perhaps 8 tables. Make reservations and I hope you enjoy as much as we did.

What a surprise. Just like the old world, don't let the out side fool you. I had the best Veal Marsala and Asparagus that I have had in many years. So good it put a smile on my face. Service was great. Met the owner Phil, what a gentleman. Definitely coming back next time I'm in town.

Last night of our trip. Was there with my wife and her parents. We received great service, he even had a good sense of humor. The food was some of the best we had all trip. They were hesitant as we approached the place but were ultimately very happy with my choice.

What a turnaround from an excellent Italian restaurant to a mediocre joint. The service felt rushed. The server clapped his hands twice when he asked to take our order. When my wife hesitated for a second he walked away to another table. We ordered Shiraz wine from the wine list and the server tried to substitute Baco Noir. He obviously... More
