Great food, great service
Atmosphere lacked, no fault of the restaurant what so ever. Down to the fact of social distancing and the limited amount of diners allowed
Very enjoyable dinner!!!!

A nice place located inside the Hilton Hotel. For the price I would have hoped for a larger serving. We orderes the steak as well as the chicken meals however our $130 bill left us leaving to fill up elsewhere.

In my opinion the Chicken Marsala was an over cooked chicken parm with gooey melted cheese and diced tomatoes.
Not the best I’ve had by a long shot.

Our server was awesome. Excellent job on his part.
Food was over priced, not authentic Italian, that’s for sure.
Wanted to sit outside, made reservations for that but was told on arrival we had to sit inside. 4 empty tables outside while we ate inside!!!
Maybe they should have a handy person do some simple maintenance.
There was a number of lights hanging by the wires, wall fixtures hanging from walls, not attached, uneven tables, busted chair….
Was told by a supervisor that this was the 3rd new restaurant in the same location since 2019.
Makes one think!!!!

The place is huge and nice, I'd just tweak a couple of things that would give the place better results like dimmering the lights, they were too bright making this place a simply touristic place when it could have a really lovely ambience. That being said, our pasta (ravioli mushroom) was absolutely delicious and the steak was quote good as well. Niagara doesn't have many places with good food choices at a fair value for money but as I said before, a couple of touches and this place could be really cool.

The foods value for Money was ridiculous I had a caprese salad which eas $21 and it consisted of 1 small vine tomato and 3 small pieces of cheese. I’m gluten free and when I asked the server what my options were he didn’t seem very convincing, we only ate an app and has wine because nothing was being accommodating to my allergy for the main courses. We will not be retuning again.

With price price of the food, it didn’t compare with the quality of the food. We had the chefs three course meal, the pasta was ok, the oso bucco was re-heated and awful, and desert was dry. Over rated and way overpriced, very disappointing.

It was a great meal. Service was great and very quick. The atmosphere it lovely and the gnocchi is delicious. The only con is it is pricey, luckily since we stayed at the Hilton we got a coupon to get $20 off. It was worth the price as it is authentic Italian.

We expected the food to be authentic Italian food but was very disappointed with the quality of the food for the value. The menu is not extensive but yet still the entree item was not available. The server tried to tell us the substitution for the brazino was the same as cod fish, which is definitely not.

Service was fantastic, however the menu was a disappointment . The Gnocchi was terrible. It seemed overcooked and grainy. It is a very small menu so not much to choose from. The mushroom ravioli was decent but very small portions. We won't be back.

Although I appreciate your company hiring senior citizens, they need A LOT more training in order to serve at a place passing themselves off as high quality. On that note, a $19 salad should not be a bunch of wilted lettuce excessively covered in Kraft Cesar dressing! Also, it is a horrible ambiance to see a bunch of service staff running around like chickens with their heads cut off and accomplishing absolutely nothing, except for yapping over us and literally throwing garbage into a garbage can from a distance like they’re in a basketball court. This is NOT a high end restaurant, unless you think McDonald’s is high end, and if you do think that, then go to McDonald’s, it’s way better service, the food is appropriately priced and you know you’re getting. Lastly, this restaurant is the furthest thing from “A Culinary Tour of Italy”. You can get more “Italian” food from East Side Mario’s!

The food was mediocre barely any sauce or flavour for the gnocchi, the seasonal veg was extremely hard, my drink was pure salt, and they made their own tip of almost 40$. Quite ridiculous if you ask me! It was supposed to be a special birthday dinner and to say the least it wasn’t. The manager was also extremely rude and wouldn’t let us speak (talking over us) or give us an explanation as to why, and proceeded to point and stair at us as we walked outside, EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL! For a “fancy restaurant”.

Food was OK at best and was overpriced.
They bring the food out quickly, which can be good if your in a rush but not good when you want to enjoy an evening out, from the time we sat down to the time the bill came was 40 minutes, this includes dessert.

When the bill comes, theres an $11.95 "Local Fee" tacked on, I was told that this is a standard fee tacked onto all bills in Niagara Falls. I asked that it be taken off as I'm local to Niagara Falls and I will not pay it, the Manager took it off the bill.

I'm not afraid of spending money on a good meal but this place was disappointing. For the money they're charging, there are places that offer better food and more options at this price point. Theres a reason that Brassa (upstairs) was full and this place was relatively empty.

Food was great, great ambiance, but I had an issue, I ordered a 9 oz glass of wine and was given a 5 oz glass of wine and charged for a 9 oz glass of wine. When I brought it up, the waiter insisted it was a 9 oz glass of wine.
Overall it was mostly good, but spoiled by the waiter error. It’s the principal of the matter, charge me what you give me. $300 meal and drinks spoiled by difference in price of 5oz and 9oz glass of wine, which was $20.

For the price, this place was surprisingly (and unfortunately) casual. People in T-shirts, shorts and flip flops on a Saturday night… We enjoyed our dinner but everything was well over priced. I can’t believe how little the Caesar salad was for almost $20. Our server was delightful but it still took an exceptionally long time to get water to the table. Starters and cocktails were already served before we got water… We noted that it was our anniversary when we booked, mentioned when they asked what the occasion was (we were dressed quite formally compared to the tourists at the tables around us) and nothing. Bit disappointing, actually.

Oh, and they don’t do the prix fixe they mention on their website anymore. Just the chefs special version for $80/person. I get the feeling this place was better pre-COVID and are now just trying to recoup losses by overcharging and under delivering.
