We wandered in here after chatting with the “crusher” outside. It’s very pleasant and clean. You have a choice of roomy booths or tables set apart at a decent distance so you didn’t feel packed in. There was a special on that night (veal parm and garlic bread for $12) but the regular prices seemed quite competitive as well. Good... More

Pleasantly surprised to find a nice restaurant, not over priced, in the heart of the tourist area of Niagara Falls. We both ordered pizza's and both were very good. We had the Classic Canadian and the Spicy Olive Diavolo Lots of cheese and good flavours. The service was good and décor very nice. Definitely would recommend to anyone!

Excellent food and great service - awesome entertainment by The Associates! The owner went above and beyond for us to help us celebrate our daughters 30th birthday. We reserved dinner for our large group at 6:30 and then he reserved tables for us in the evening after bringing the younger aged back to the hotel. The food was very tasty... More

The live music and vibe to the bar was amazing, a cabby recommended especially for the 25+ crowd. The only drawback, dance floor is too small, and the layout is slightly awkward.

The restaurant was almost empty when we got there and it never filled up, even on a Saturday evening. But to our surprised, the staff are very friendly and the other customers are very friendly as well. The food did not talk long to arrive and we were pleasantly surpried that is was not as bad as I thought it... More

I've eaten here about a half dozen times and really enjoyed it. After being out of the area for a little over a year we came back without a thought, and was sadly disappointed. The quality of the food has gone done so far it's ridiculous. Goat cheese crustinis should actually have goat cheese on them not some weird runny... More

We attended your establishment on a Saturday evening with a party of 10. We were seated and given menus and told our server would be with us shortly. About 10 minutes later she arrived, looking very busy, and quickly took our drink orders. I was pretty dissatisfied by the lack of local beers, Niagra has local craft breweries! Why wouldn't...

Chose three locals to look into. Wandered around just in case, and there it was! The Spicy Olive! Hmm, never been in, did send a few guests up the hill to try them out over the years after hearing good reviews from others. Gotta do this! Quiet Sunday night, so I took care to ask if we were keeping anyone... More

This place was close to our hotel and it was raining so we decided to walk over to have a few drinks. We tried 4 different "well" drinks and they were awful. I'm not even sure there was any alcohol in 2 of them. Very overpriced for the quality. We left unsatisfied.

Food and service were both uninspiring. The waiter barely checked on us and wasn't very pleasant. We had the pasta, which had no flavour and was just pasta in a bland sauce. Even salt and pepper didn't help! Would not go back here!
