Came here on trip advisor's recommendation. We had pizza and panini. Both were good, particularly the bread of the panini. I would say average overall rating. Nothing to knock your socks off!

Four of us stopped in this past weekend. Four very different people, four VERY different palates, two distinct age groups. All of us were more than satisfied, and we sampled a little bit of each other's as well. One Italian Vanilla, one Raspberry and White Chocolate, one Lemon Gelato, and one Creme Brulee. Each one was unique, and each one... More

Well, I admit it! We have a HUGE weakness for gelato! The Bad News? We don't live in Italy. The Good News? "Nina Gelateria" features gelato that tastes as close to the real thing as you're ever going to find! (And, believe me . . . We've sampled LOTS!!) We were wandering up and down Queen St. in NOTL, doing... More

My cousin and I had lunch here whilst on a day trip from Niagara. We shared a large toasted pannini and a raspberry danish, they were both delicious and plenty for the two of us (two over 60s ladies). The shop is spotlessly clean and the service quick and friendly. Not many tables as it is mainly a take away,... More

Good tasting gelato and cappuccino. The prices are ok, but their line up is very poor when it is busy. They apparently have 2 lines - one for gelato and one for everything else, but there are no signs, or ropes or any indication of how things work on the customer side so people are routinely butting in front of...

I stopped for a cool treat and their coffee flavor was very good. I have been spoiled eating gelato fresh from the gelato machine in Florence though this had good flavor if less than perfect texture.

I have been here before but this time even got a table - what luck. My friend and I had delicious paninis followed by wonderful gelatos. Excellent for both. Service was good, fast and helpful. Always a great place to stop in NOTL.

Great ice cream and delicious pizza. Always busy and I can see why. Usually never get a chance to go I , as they close at 7, but because we went to a matinee, finally go to try it. Will go again.

There are others who offer gelato in NOTL but nothing compares to the exceptional true flavors of Nina's. Even with a small they happily will do multiple choices. The paninis are terrific to take to the lake and enjoy the view ~ quick, easy lunch!

Long lines, but we were able to cut in because my wife only wanted a hot tea - I just added my ice-cream order to hers! The ice cream (mango) was excellent if a little pricey - but it's a tourist place, so what do you expect? The staff working the counter were very nice.
