A wonderful selection of dishes and each dish had wonderful flavours and was prepared perfectly. I wonderful experience in a nice small town. I would eat here anytime i am in the area.
Normally i wouldn't say much, but we were there for our 10th anniversary. They food was good as always. But the calamari was very good except the aloi and the verde dipping sauces had no flavour whatsoever.
We had a marvellous meal, attentive service and a warm atmosphere.
Upon arrival our reservation was not found. It appears when the other couple arrived first the reservation was somehow deleted so when we arrived we were sat at another table. We waited about 15 minutes waiting for the other couple and when my husband went for a look around the restaurant we found them. Must be a better system in place to ensure all parties have arrived.
Food was very good. Sizeable portions that everyone took home something.
Our waiter Jamie was very good. Personable and spot on with wine recommendation.
Looking forward to the next time!
Always excellent! It has become our restaurant of choice for Niagara bound region.
Another marvelous meal. Thanks again to Chef Tim Cherry and our server Miranda. Cheers
Many time repeater.Good food and ambience. Never a complaint or disappointment. Will be returning.
One of the best restaurants we have visited in the Niagara Region. The food was delicious; the service delicious! The menu is priced very fairly do such high quality dining. We will definitely be back for our special occasions.
I visiting Just Cooking Rustic Italian on a whim in July. It was for a friend's 50th birthday celebration and it was excellent. My sister and I planned an overnight visit to Niagara-on-the-lake in commemoration of losing our mother 10 years ago. My first thought for dinner was Just Cooking Rustic Italian and we were not disappointed. The ease of booking a reservation online, the attention to and friendliness of service, and of course the food - the bread, salads and main courses were all excellent. Just Cooking Rustic Italian would be my restaurant of choice any time I am in the Niagara area
We were seated in the new solarium addition and had a very quiet setting to celebrate my wife's birthday. She had the seafood pasta dish and i had salmon and risotto, although my favorite is the Lamb shank. Wines are local and a very good selection. We always come back to Just Cooking when we return from spending the summer at the cottage. We book it online from the lake!
Food is of outstanding quality, cooked to perfection and delicious. Put that together with friendly, service and attention to detail for perfect food and wine experience.
We've been to this restaurant several times and it has always been a pleasure. Great food and atmosphere and a very satisfying experience on every occasion.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Will return.
The ambience and friendly staff sure make for a fabulous dining experience. The food is always fresh and tasty! What’s always important to me is that my food arrives at the table HOT and it has each time. Also, it was no problem letting staff know that a person at our table had food allergies. Highly recommend “Just Cooking Rustic Italian” for a high quality dining experience.
This was are first time eating at Just Cooking Rustic Italian and we were both extremely happy with are overall experience. From the complimentary bread, appetizer and main course everything was delicious and served hot. Service was friendly and not rushed even though the restaurant was on the busy side. Have been to most of the restaurants in the area including the wineries but this one really stood out for quality and price. Looking forward to are next visit.
Greeted warmly. Waiter Jamie was enthusiastic about the food and experience we'd have. He was attentive and informative. Salad and main arrived well within expected time frames. Eggplant entree came without veggies, sauce or pasta a disappointment and surprise. Flavour good. Entree lamb shank terrific, veggies great, presentation and flavour spot on. Dining for us 430pm, only diners there. Eill go again.
Our first time there and we enjoyed it a lot. Food was excellent although we thought the fish should have been prices $5 less. I had the Gnocchi Ragu which was excellent. No room for dessert though so next time.
I should have chosen a different main course, my meal was very bland, my wife's meal on the other hand was excellent.
One of our favourite places. Excellent food. You never leave hungry.
This was an incredible experience for our party of 6. The staff were experienced, respectful and very informed. Food was outstanding! Great night overall. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
The food was incredible, complimented perfectly by the local wine selection. Service was brilliant and the ambience perfect. We’d definitely make a return visit!
This place was highly recomended by several people. I decided to try it for our 25th anniversary. The service was excellent and the osso buco was one of the best ever. My wife had the gnocchi and was very happy as well. Our creme brulee dessert was a 9.5. Very different as it was made with 40 Creek whiskey which you could actually taste. We'll definitely be back.
We have been here 3 times, this was by far the best time yet
The waitress was incredible, all the staff are friendly, very helpful, it’s as if you are visiting someone’s home
It was the first time for our guests, they were very impressed
They use local food and beverage providers whenever possible
Great real vegetables, with good flavour. Lamb was a little chewy, but fish was great.
My husband and I had a beautiful lunch at Just Cooking Rustic Italian and our waitress was exceptional and looking forward to enjoying our next meal here!
My sister had recommended this restaurant. We were on our way home from the Niagara area and decided to give it a try. Our waiter Jamie was exceptional both in recommendations and service. My husband had the mussels and then the seafood linguine. I had the arugula salad and then the eggplant. Everything was just delicious. Including a bottle of red wine (recommended by Jamie) our bill (not including tip ) was under $125. The bread and dipping sauce which were complimentary were melt in your mouth. We will definitely go back. We highly recommend reservations.
Delicious food, attentive waiters, nice decision of wine: It's a great receipe for a good restaurant.
Great restaurant in Vineland. Not cheap but reasonable considering the quality. We have been there about 7 times and never been disappointed. I am a big fan of gelato and they make their own. Lemon honey rosemary is my favourite.
Great food, great service! Would definitely go back.
Just Cooking has a new menu with lots of great choices. Their food was excellent and the service was excellent. Has become one of our favorite restaurants .
Excellent food good service
It was great. We were not disappointed !! Some friends suggested it to us, and we are glad they did.
Service and food were great !
As always the food is delicious and very reasonable. Service was quick as our group had a wine tasting reservation to attend.
Both quality of food and service were excellent. Aleeda did a fantastic job. We will be back for sure.
Thank you for the new set up. The noise level was wonderfully reduced from our last visit. We really enjoyed our dinner.
First time at this restaurant and we absolutely loved it. We are from out of town and thought it looked interesting and we were pleasantly surprised....excellent food, excellent wait staff.....highly recommend.
Food was good but service was not which made the experience not very good. Wouldn’t go back.
We are regulars at just cooking but that may change. Food is still quite good but the service tonight was dreadful and not what we are used to. Water not refilled until we asked for it, server did not really care about us at all. Just a blah experience for us tonight. Might not be as regular going forward.
Every restaurant has times where things come off the rails...It is unfortunate and we take no pride in service failures like you describe. It's also unfortunate that we are never forgiven for an off night...remember, your favourite servers in all your favourite restaurants are all human.
Great service and food...was our first time since it was recommended by a friend. Egglpant Parm was out of this world.
