Nicolino's has been a favorite in our community for decades. This well-established restaurant offers a great selection of food for all palates, from omnivore to keto to vegan. As well, they have a lounge which hosts live music and entertainment - check with them for their schedule. Keep in mind, 50 is the new 20 ;-)

About the restaurant
Cafe Carlo is a friendly, unpretentious Canadian bistro located in Winnipeg’s Little Italy neighborhood. Cafe Carlo’s warm, comfortable atmosphere has been a staple in Winnipeg’s dining scene and continues to be considered among the city’s best restaurants since it was established in 1989. The atmosphere and the décor have evolved from the restaurant’s humble “rummage sale” chic beginnings. The owners and employees believed that a great restaurant simply was meant to be “about the food”. The passion of the very first employees and their love of food & drink remain intact to this day. We want to share the foods and beverages we love, that the world loves, with each of our guests.

St. Boniface
About the restaurant
Since 1971, when the Simeonidis family opened a little take-out pizzeria in Thompson, Manitoba, Santa Lucia’s dedication to great tasting food and great value has made the little pizzeria a great success. The family’s tradition of making fresh dough, bread, sauces, salad dressings, and traditional Greek and Italian foods, all from scratch has helped Santa Lucia Pizza expand throughout the province.

We enjoyed ourselves very much! The food was delicious and our server was attentive without being bothersome. Terrific ambience; clean washrooms. Be prepared to walk a few blocks for parking. We didn’t mind this at all - it was a beautiful Winnipeg evening. Thank you!
