Slackoni's sorry this visit was not a pleasant one (which is unusual) long wait for food, items not delivered by waitress .... had to ask several times, and food arrived cold. Did not want to send back as we had already waited 2 1/2 hours. Sorry guys!

We tried this place a few times - because the atmosphere is kind of bistro charming and the town does not boast a lot of choice for upmarket dining so we tried it. Each time service was - well absent. There was one server, one bus person and a manager. Sometimes one or more of these individuals would go missing... More

Chose Slackoni's for a large group because I read on the website they catered for weddings and events and thought they can handle it. Staff was rude and spoke in a rather loud voice at the beginning, offended customers after the meal. Food was good, but I doubt their capacity to control the circumstances arising from having to deal with... More

Indoors or a lovely patio next to the river. Excellent menu and a great chef. Salads, fish and steaks made to perfection but leave room for dessert. Good selection of wines. The service compliments and surpasses expectations. From talking to other customers it`s always the same, you can see the pride. We`ll be back.

went to watch a band a couple weekends ago. Service was very slow. I did not eat but others did and it looked good but a bit tasteless and pasta was mushy. My iced tea was removed from the table by the server when I went to the washroom...it had 1/3rd left. I did not bother to say anything and... More

A warm and heartfelt thank you to everyone at Slaconi's. The service was friendly and the food was excellent. We would recommend to anybody else having a wedding to consider Slaconi's. A beautiful location, amazing pictures and an overall awesome experience. Thank you

Not far from Highway #7, this restaurant is a gem located along the Mississippi River in an old Stone House in Carleton Place, Ontario. For a quiet birthday celebration we were treated to an out door patio table overlooking the river. The service was more than expected, with the owner/chef coming out to us with samples of wine suggestions that... More

All items we selected were delicious. Authentic Italian sauces are freshly made for each meal. Gluten free options available. Our selections were well sized and contained generous portions of meat and/or seafood. We sat on the patio overlooking the waterfalls of the Mississipi River- entertaining and enjoyable.

Such an unfortunate situation as the food at this restaurant is really good but the service is excruciatingly slow. We don't mind waiting for good food but waiting 20 minutes for plates to be cleared and then another 20 minutes to get our bill. This is a small restaurant and yet may not be staffed appropriately. One server carrying the... More

Slackoni's is located in a beautiful Heritage stone building situated on the Mississippi river beside Morphy's Falls. We offer a beautiful waterside patio and cozy indoor seating with a view. We also offer a small separate "green room" ~ great for groups of up to 20! Our food is made to order and always fresh and tasty, we use fresh local ingredients that are available.
