Dinner in Niagara Falls

  • m

I am looking for a reasonably priced restaurant in Niagara Falls for a Saturday night dinner, preferably Italian cuisine. Any recommendations?

  1. Here's a review I previously posted for a place that's actually *in* Niagara falls (as opposed to Niagara-on-the-lake.) I think it's your best bet -- if not your only bet. If you go -- please post and let me know what you think!


    Well I found a place *in* Niagara Falls. I don't usually go to Italian restaurants. I can cook Italian just as well at home so it's not worth the money to me. But I'd heard this place was good. and I didn't feel like dining at Applebee's...
    This place was very good. We had a nicely done smoked salmon appetizer plate. The salmon was rolled, stuffed with an arugula salad and presented on a rosti (that could have been crisper). The plate was dotted with wasabi caviar -- very interesting. All of their pastas are homemade. We had a fettucine al funghi. Nicely done, with three kinds of mushrooms. But the outstanding dish was Duck Confit served over fresh egg linguine. The duck was tender. The dish was decadent, floating atop a pool of fat from the confit. Delicious. Went very well with an aggresive chardonnay. The wine list is good -- heavy on pricey Italian reds but a good Canadian selection and choices for all budgets available. Fridays and Saturdays they have a jazz trio. Great decor. Most tables feel quite intimate. Good service. And they'll pay your taxi chit to and from your hotel.
    A real find for Niagara falls.
    Mind you, whether I'd go to Niagara Falls again for a getaway is another story. Been there. Done that. Had to have the shower afterwards...

      That's all fine and dandy.. but you forgot something..

      like the name of the restaurant, and perhaps where it might be found.

        It's called *Casa Mia*.

        Don't remember the particulars. But they're on the web. And their number is probably published in all the NF tourist booklets.

      Just back from NF and had a really good dinner at Carpaccio on Lundy's Lane. Great service, good food and a decent wine list with reasonable mark-ups.
