Went for lunch before Showboat Theatre. Great atmosphere, great service, and great food. We had the seafood crepe with salad included--delicious. We had the crème brulee for dessert and it was scrumptious. Wonderful way to start a nice afternoon.

The place is small but if you've had real Italian home made food then you will taste it here for sure, good sized portions. It was clean and the staff were very friendly.

Upon entry we were asked if we had a reservation (we did not, as it was a Wednesday at 6:30). Hostess gave a surprising and unwelcoming look, but sat us. There were 16 tables with only 1 couple seated. By the end of our meal (at 7:50) only 2 other tables were seated in the whole restaurant. Why the poor... More

We are sorry you had a negative experience. Even though the restaurant was not busy, there were other reservations. Unless we ask, we have no idea if you were the people who reserved, regardless of the number of tables that were not occupied. You enjoyed the wine, the chicken, the service, but you question a bacon wrapped beef tenderloin. Beef... More

My personal favorite is the Veal Parmesan, my boyfriend loves the Chicken Picatta, The staff are always friendly and it is a great way to spend a leisurely evening , and there is always someone celebrating a special event where they encourage everyone to...

Great food, lots of variety, super service and a lovely atmosphere. When you are travelling to the Niagara area this is a good place to stop for home cooking away from home with an elegant feel. You wont be disapointed

We try to go every other month as date night. We enjoy the food, the wine is chilled perfectly. Not rushed, good place to relax and enjoy the evening out.

My husband and I went for our anniversary. We have been there a few times before and always enjoyed it. This time however the waitress was way too busy talking to the other staff. We had to flag her down for drink refills. Sat and waited forever for a dessert menu which she just verbally told us what was available.... More
