“Lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We stayed at La Toscana for just one night in mid-April, en route to a meeting on the East Coast. As observed by nearly every reviewer here, the B&B is conveniently located and very comfortable - but it is Carlotta and Kash themselves who make La Toscana shine. We hope to return as soon as possible! Bravo!

My wife and I has our first experience at a bed and breakfast and La Toscana could not have been a better choice. We felt right at home as soon as we walked in with Carlotta greeting us and immediately felt we know each other for a long time. The accommodations were great and it's close to the shops and many wineries and makes La Toscana and ideal place to stay. Our best experience was just relaxing in the living room with Carlotta and Kash and just talking you will never get this in hotels. Let's talk about about breakfast...amazing from special home made juice to an amazing desert and Nonna was amazing with her service. Bella experienza Carlotta e ci vediamo a piu presto....Rocco

My husband and I stayed at La Toscana to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and it was the best choice we could have made. Kash and Carlotta were very hospitable and attended to every need including recommending some good restaurants for us to dine at. The room was so cosy and we slept like babies after some shopping and exploring around Niagara On The Lake. La Toscana is close to where the shops are so it is THE ideal place to stay at. The breakfast was delicious and made with much love. Carlotta's mum was also around to help and she's a darling. They also have a dog -- Maya, who is very loving and gentle. If you are afraid of dogs, don't worry... this one won't hurt a fly. The both of us would love to go back again. There are a lot of choices for places to stay at NOTL but we would without a doubt choose La Toscana over anything else. Do book early if you're planning to visit since the rooms fill up pretty quick.

We just returned from yet another two-night stay at La Toscana di Carlotta. We always feel as if we are staying at the home of very good friends, when we visit La Toscana, as Carlotta and Kash are such warm, friendly hosts who make us feel so welcome. The location is ideal ... just one block from the main street yet far enough away to be utterly peaceful and quiet. Our room was beautifully appointed and the breakfasts that Carlotta prepared were incredibly delicious! From Kash's homemade juices to Carlotta's decadent desserts, breakfast was a delight! There was definitely no need for lunch on either day! With the lovely weather, we were able to enjoy sitting outside, sipping wine on our terrace. La Toscana is THE place to stay in NOTL!

Delightful hosts, dedicated to providing an enjoyable experience. Delicious breakfasts with a combination of specialty Italian imports and local niagara fare. Olive oil from Carlotta's brother's grove in Italy. And, dessert after breakfast! Quiet location, pretty room, very comfortable sleep. Very close to the theatre, shopping and parks.

We've come to think of La Toscana di Carlotta as our home away from home when visiting NOTL. We just spent another glorious weekend there and got to experience the genuine hospitality Kash and Carlotta naturally exude again. There natural warmth and easy going demeaner allow you to relax and take in the atmosphere at your pace. Before you know it you're relaxing and becomming one of their family. When you couple this with the glorious breakfast the next morning it amounts to the perfect recipe for success. Both Kash and Carlotta will see us again soon, you can't go wrong when in NOTL.

We wish there was a rating above "excellent" to describe La Toscanna! First, the location it IDEAL for visiting NOTL as it is 1 block from the main street/strip. Second, the price is very reasonable for everything I'm about to list! Third, if you want to feel like family or long lost friends then Carlotta and Kash are your hosts of choice. They are two of the most genuine and caring people with an eye for detail that we have met in a long long time. They are both more then willing to help you with whatever your request or issue is and do so with a warm heartfelt smile. Fourth, the breakfast is to die for! I would go here strictly to eat even if it wasn't in NOTL. The crostini with three different toppings was amazing. It's a multi-course breakfast that is made from scratch and finished off with dessert! The home is very charming with ALOT of history. We stood in the Botticelli room and slept in a bed passed down in Carlotta's family from the 1700s!!! If you want a charming place to stay with extraordinary food, impeccable rooms, in a perfect location with gracious hosts then La Toscanna is the only place for you.

Tip: book now as they fill up quick!!!
