Marciano's is a favorite. It's a little hole under the floor type place so seating is limited especially at peak times. The restaurant is simple and furnishings are traditional but the food is delicious. Salad and bread are complimentary with your entree. Food is hot,...More

Always great food. Homemade taste is evident. Best salad dressing ever made! Need to kow the secret recipe. We eat here once a month and it has never let us down. Atmosphere needs work but food is top notch

Absolutely terrible. I cannot even comment on the food because we didn't even get that far! I called for a reservation and spoke to a man who was beyond rude. Apparently there wasn't any room left for dinner when I called, but the way that...More

Small little spot, downtwon, excellent service, pasta made fresh daily, full menu including pastas, pizza, veal and chicken dishes. Very busy spot, opens at 5, be prepared to line up on Friday and Sturday nights, but so worth the weight. Reasonable priced, good wine list....More

Basement restaurant with entrance at the rear of 5 Mill Street in Waterdown, Ontario, which is now a part of Hamilton. This is a small restaurant that has approximately a dozen tables and is usually full for dinner service only. Quaint, subdued atmosphere but don't let that fool you.What is saved on decor is spent on fresh ingredients to make delicious Italian food. The Veal Iataliano is to die for, stuffed with sausage and coverd in a delicious wild mushroom sauce. The Chicken Pecan with a Baileys cream sauce is equally delicious. Accompanied by a sde of spaghetti and a light tangy Ceasar salad. Writting this review makes me want to book reservations now. This is recommended as the restaurant is small and gets quite busy. Bellissimo.
