We went to the restaurant because we like Kacaba wines but really enjoyed the meal. My husband and I choose the fish suggestions while our son chose from the appetizer menu, the calamari and mussels. All were great. Next time we will try the rustic Italian dishes.

Delightful lunch. Food and service were excellent. Only drawback: if you sit in the front section, there’s a chilly blast of air each time someone enters. Probably cosier in a he back, or during the mild weather.

Consistently good. Great value for the quality of good. Very authentic cuisine with a definate attention to detail. Everything is made from scratch in house. I would say that after visiting more than 6 times in the past year that this is the best Italian restaurant in Southern Ontario. Tell all your friends!!

Always delicious food.

I had the roasted chicken breast with Marsala cream. Chicken was moist and roasted to perfection. The butternut squash risotto was beyond fantastic, creamy and perfectly seasoned.

Fantastic service.

This is a wonderful restaurant in the Niagara area. I have eaten here often and have never been disappointed in the ambience or the food. Visiting wineries are not unusual and evening/lunch specials are always tasty.

We visited Just Cooking for our first time for a friends Birthday. The food was amazing, made to order, fresh, homemade, Italian food. We would definitely return for another special evening. The service was fabulous, our server was attentive to finding out who the Birthday girl in our group was. At the end of our meal she brought a dessert with a lighted candle to celebrate.

My family and I dined at your fine establishment last evening, March 10, 2018 and I just had to write in to praise the vegetable platter we "special ordered" for my vegan daughter-in-law.
It consisted of potatoes, mushrooms, red peppers, zucchini, beets and green beans.
It looked so wonderful and she really enjoyed it.

I was curious if this could possibly be a regular menu / side item as I know I would order this and so would my son. Of course this may not be an option, but either way, it's much appreciated that this effort was made to accommodate those with special diets.

In addition to the wonderful dinner we all enjoyed last evening, I want to compliment our server #000014 (sorry I did not get her name). She was extremely efficient, pleasant and a real delight.

We looking forward to dining with you again soon!

I have been to Just Cooking a few times and have purchased gift certificates for friends. As always the food was delicious and our server was great! You didn't have a rose on the wine list and he accommodated us by getting a Malivoire from the basement. I also requested the tagliatelle Funghi ( my favorite) which is not on the lunch menu and our server once again accommodated me with my selection. I left a donation request for my company golf tournament which he was pleased to pass along to the owner.
In closing I will continue to dine at your restaurant and refer to others as this is a great spot that excels in all areas. Thank you.

The Arctic char was wonderful; the vegetables that accompanied were not because too many of them were raw and therefore flavourless.. My friend had to settle for a veal steak because the osso buco was not ready to serve, and the veal steak was a big mass of tough meat and difficult to eat. I had a similar experience with a veal steak on a previous visit so I think you should consider a better quality of meat and a smaller cut for your veal steak. Size does not necessarily guarantee quality. The deserts were good and everyone enjoyed them, and the birthday candles were a nice touch.

Food was good (not fantastic) but they pack so many tables in to the small space it gets noisy quickly. It was packed when we went andVERYloud. I could barely have a conversation with the people at my own table. Not sure I will risk it again.
