Cliffys is the kind of place everyone orders thier take out and delivery pizza and famous pazzorotti's but if they ever sit down in the restaurant they are blown away.....saying how come I did not know about this place! My sister describes it as a hidden gem. They have really good dinner rolls homemade. My mother told the Portuguese lady... More

Yummy Italian food, consistently well prepared. friendly service, reasonable prices. Only about 6 tables, but we've always gotten in, as long as not prime time Friday/Saturday - call ahead for reservations!

Ordered 4 deep fried Panzerotti. They were great, only complaint is they forgot one item in one of the Panzerotti. The staff was pleasant but I waited probably 10-15 min longer than promised. If you haven't tried the Panzerotti here and you like Gigi's, I suggest you give this place a try.

We ended up here for dinner wanting to check it out after living in the area for awhile ... the food was homemade, fresh and plentiful! The panzerotti's (calzones) were the size of footballs - NO JOKE! lasagna great ... next time we will try some of the delicious portuguese delicacies which looked amazing at the table next door! a...

We made a stop here after some Christmas shopping. We were the only ones in the restaurant (Tuesday night) but we were not disappointed! The lady was very attentive and the food was excellent! My husband had the manicotti and I had the panzerotti. We also enjoyed the Portuguese perogies, which she gave it to us 'on the house' because... More

We were looking for a nice place to enjoy some Italian food in central Brantford and we were pleasantly surprised to find Cliffy's - good food at a reasonable price with pleasant service.

We were looking for somewhere different to try in Brantford and someone had recommended Cliffy's to us. We had always thought it was just a pizza place. Have had their pizza many times in the past and it is great pizza..... Anyway, who knew there was a hidden little restaurant that serves a rather extensive list of pasta dishes, fish,... More

We went to Cliffy's based on the great reviews. I have never been in such a terrible restaurant for years. The restaurant has absolutely no atmosphere and the food was tasteless. The cheese pizza had no taste. The veal Parmesan was of poor quality and also no flavour with a bunch of gook piled on top of it. I had... More

My husband and I dropped in for the first time and had a panzerotti each. Absolutely delicious with a crust that was almost the same as what my husband's Italian grandmother used to make! Thoroughly enjoyed it along with the friendly service and quaint atmosphere. Already planning to go back again!

I eat here at least once a month. The food is excellent, with a lot of choice. It's a small place, but a hidden gem. They gave nice wine and beer too and serve delicious little bread rolls! Don't eat here if you're on a hurry, but the food is worth waiting for. (They also have a pizza takeaway too.)... More
