“The Charm of Tuscany”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

La Toscana di Carlotta embraces elegant Tuscan charm in one of the oldest homes in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The vision of Florentine Carlotta Cattani and her husband Zuhair Kashmeri is pure MAGIC.

The other reviews here extoll the exquisite accommodation, delicious five-course breakfast, gracious hospitality and warm charm of hosts Carlotta, Kash, Mama from Firenze and dog, Maya.

I'm here to tell you that your experience at Toscana di Carlotta will linger with you like the timeless notes of a fine opera. And like a fine opera, the experience will resonate from the grand to the personal. Meet other interesting guests from all over the world; feast on a unique breakfast al fresco to the enduring richness of Bocelli. Molto civile!

I adore Carlotta's signature crostinis...I love her Tuscan loaf and Kash's cafe cremes! But most of all, I cherish their genuine smiles and all that comes with it.

Ah...Carlotta! Sei cosi bella! :-3 ...

Ton ami,
Toulouse

We found this B&B on trip advisor. It exceeded our expectations. We were greeted warmly by Carlotta and immediately brought to our beautiful room with a balcony. Everything was immaculate! We were quickly introduced to the rest of the family, Kash, Mama from Firenze and the dog. They made us feel like guests in their private home. The location was perfect. The breakfast was amazing. There was so much food and it was all delicious. I give this B&B my highest recommendation!

We spent several days recently at La Toscana di Carlotta. We have been there previously and always look forward to returning. Kash and Carlotta are such gracious hosts and so accommodating. They truly make us feel at home at their place. The rooms are comfortable and the shared spaces have plenty of reading material. The food is delicious, especially the apple tart! Beware--you will not need to eat until dinner after having an incredible breakfast. Every morsel is tasty! It's definitely a great place to stay.

Carlotta, Kash and Shara were born to be innkeepers! They are charming, respectful, and so very helpful.Their home is warm, welcoming, and very clean. The food exceeded any expectations we could have had, and is without a doubt the best breakfast meals we have ever eaten anywhere (....and that would include breakfast in Tuscany!). This is a five-star B&B and we recommend it without hesitation.

Spent two (not enough) days On The Lake, then two more at the Falls. Carlotta and Kash are two of the best inn keepers we have experienced(Carlotta's Mom was darling also). Everything was easy walking for Shaw Theatre, Ft. George and all the great restaurants. We are already considering our next trip from Boston area. (@10 hrs.) ,but next time will spend more time in "Ice Wine" country than at the Falls. This was our 41st Anniversary and thanks again for making it a memorable stay with you. My wife wants to emphasize how she was thrilled with the delicious desserts that accompanied our gourmet breakfasts (especially the one with a chocolate touch)

Room Tip: Our room was second floor with a large balcony for relaxing and reading after a day of Wine Country...

Simply Amazing!!! From the time I made my reservation on the phone, the very warm greeting in this Italian home to my departure. Loved every minute and every bite of the delicious authentic Italian breakfasts / brunches. Perfectly located, in walking distance to the theaters, great restaurants, boutiques and the lake. Clean and fresh rooms, this B&B has everything you are looking for. I was even more delighted to meet guests who have been coming back year after year to this home. As it truly feels like Home.
