My husband had the seafood linguini and loved it; my Caesar salad was delicious; pizza was so-so.

Stephanie, our server was great! The restaurant was freezing cold, and she had to open a window to let us get some warm air in. The table next to us was also freezing! There was a bird flying around the restaurant! I did not expect this to be an outdoor picnic atmosphere! Stephanie brought us tasting samples of two wines to try before making our selection. We told her what we like, and the bartender gave us 2 wonderful selections. We ordered a bottle of local wine which we truly enjoyed. Spaghetti and meatballs was very good, as were the stuffed mushrooms! Pizza was less than expected. Chicken saltimbocca was good, but a little salty. Tiramisu was ok, as was the chocolate cake. Service great! Ambiance less than expected—freezing with bird flying around. Food OK.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. I feel it was not a restaurant that open table should have on its lineup of restaurants. The food was mediocre and I feel that is being kind.

The restaurant seemed overwhelmed during our Saturday night service. Very slow service and many uncleared tables. Place was not clean. My wood fired pizza was under cooked and soggy. I think they were understaffed and poorly managed.

Once again we had a wonderful dinner with friends at Pranzo. I tried the PEI mussels for the first time and they were fabulous. Veal Marsala was terrific and so was the veal parmigiana. Excellent desserts. We’ll be back!

This place is a hidden gem! We spotted it on our way to our hotel room and thought we would try it for dinner since we didn’t make our typical reservation at our usual spot. I’m so happy we tried it! For 39$ you get an appetizer, main entree, AND a dessert. An unbeatable price considering restaurants in the area charge rediciulous amounts. A steal almost! We went at 7:15pm on a Sunday. It was fairly empty but enough people to hear chatter or speak up a bit so your partner could hear you. The staff was very friendly and helpful with menu choices and explaining how the fixed price menu worked (you can order a la carte if you don’t want to do fixed price).
My meal was the fried ravioli, Alfredo bacon linguini (added chicken), and chocolate cake. My husband ordered Spicey shrimp, lobster ravioli, and cheesecake. As people that like to eat (a lot!) We found the portions very reasonable. And the taste was something I’ve never experienced from other chain “Italian” restaurants.
Since coming home I’ve already found myself craving it and can’t wait to go back.
My top 5 restaurants have a new contender!

My wife and I had our meal there since we stayed in the Fallsview. Calamari was very good. My steak was also well prepared but my wife's pizza unfortunately did not live up to standards. Although it states brick oven pizza, I'm pretty sure the pizza was not brick oven. Brick oven pizzas have an uneven texture meaning its very thin in some areas and not so thin in others and some of the pizza is burnt because you cannot control the cooking time in a brick oven. I applaud management for discounting the meal by 10%. Stephanie, our waitress, was very nice in pointing this out in our bill. We would come back but my wife would order something else.

My wife and I had lunch here today. Very good. Beautiful decor in this spacious round restaurant on a corner. We shared the Spicy Shrimp appetizer. Very good with shrimp, peppers, scallions, smoked paprika, and arugula. My wife had the Minestrone Soup and I had the Chicken Saltimboca, which was boneless chicken thighs stuffed with proscuitto served over cauliflower mash. Excellent. Dillon was our waiter and he took very good care of us! Worth a visit.

The food was very, very mediocre, but very expensive. They really need a new head chef. I cannot imagine anybody with cooking experience eating the white pizza and thinking it is appropriate to serve to customers. My husband ate the Canadian pizza, and not only was the crust soggy, the flavour was terrible. The spices were so odd! We will not return.

I thought the menu was quite small, however the chicken parmesan was phenomenal! Lots of cheese, and a pretty big portion. Service was great - our server was attentive, came by to check on us often, and everything came very quickly.

The quality of the food was amazing. For the amount of volume they had that evening the waitress never kept us waiting and she was one of the best I’ve ever had serving. In fact all the waiting staff was on top of there game providing all the tables with a great dining experience to the best of my observations. With that being said the only down fall was the quantity of the food felt like we ordered from the kids menu.

Enjoyed the restaurant, good service, generous portions. Only complaint was that the hostess tried to seat us at a table for two right at the entrance of the restaurant from the hotel. We had made reservations a week prior so I told the hostess that we did not want that table as there would be too much traffic. She obliged and moved us to another part of the restaurant where there was much better atmosphere (and the restaurant wasn't very busy). 7:30 p.m. Don't know why she tried to put us there in the first place!!!
Overall, I would return.

The server was the best thing about the restaurant. Other than that, I do not recommend it. The food was not a fine dining quality, and the atmosphere was not good either. To start, the stuffed mushrooms were ok, but not great. The caesar salad used bought croutons, which were extremely garlic-flavoured so that if you ate one, you couldn't taste anything else. We ordered the only Pinot Grigio on the list, and it was ok, but since it was not busy, the server should have put it in a ice bucket. The main course of stuffed cheese pasta hearts in a cream-wine sauce was not great. The pasta was not fresh and that's the whole point; when I eat out, I want fresh, not something I could cook myself. As for the atmosphere, the music was way too loud and not romantic, seeing as it was Valentine's day.

I was a little disappointed in the food selection and claim of authenticity. Having very few choices on the dinner menu that interested me and many of the dishes are not typical Italian cuisine at all. The interior is very nice and their is a great view of the Niagara downtown area at street level. Overall the food was good but I expected more for my money.

Best part was our server Stephanie. She was friendly and prompt with service. She noticed that I didn’t enjoy the bruschetta and offered to replace with another appetizer, dessert or remove from the bill. We didn’t even need to ask which was a pleasant surprise. Stuffed mushroom appetizer was delicious as was the Mediterranean plate. Lots of menu choices so easy enough to please everyone. Thanks Stephanie for making our evening !

We knew the restaurant advertised "children eat free", but when 90% of the restaurant is empty why in the world would they seat a family with 2 children right next to our table when we were looking forward to a quiet dinner?
