Best Italian Restaurants In Niagara That Are Pasta-tively Amazing

Next time you are looking for a nice night out, you’ll want to check out some of the best Italian restaurants in Niagara.

Located throughout wine country, these local spots are the perfect places to grab a glass of vino, unwind, and chow down on some mouthwatering pasta and pizza.

Here are the top five spots that Tipsy Theory recommends to anyone looking to get their Italian fix.

Casa Mia Ristorante

This family-operated spot has been serving up amazing Italian dishes since the 1970s. Their Pomodoro sauce has been passed down for generations and is one dish that you need to order at this Niagara restaurant.

One of their main features is an enormous floor-to-ceiling wine cellar that showcases over 700 labels, with many of them being rare and collectable.


Ruffino’s Pasta Bar & Grill

Situated in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ruffinoโ€™s Pasta Bar & Grill is located in a plaza and looks unassuming on the outside. However, once you step inside, you are transported to a whole new world.

You are immediately greeted with glowing candles, a wood-burning brick oven, friendly staff and mouth-watering food. With pasta and pizza that is to die for, you’ll be coming back again and again.


Napoli Ristorante Pizzeria

This spot is located right in the heart of Niagara Falls and is all about fresh ingredients, old family recipes, a passion for food and proud service.

Some fan favourites include the ravioli in Bianco, the Italiana pizza and the pici alla bolognese.


Carpaccio Restaurant & Wine Bar

Voted the best overall restaurant in Niagara, this spot makes some of the most mouth-watering Italian food with the freshest Mediterranean ingredients.

Start dinner with their Caprese salad, followed by either pasta, pizza or other entrees (including their chicken parmigiana and rack of lamb).


The Twisted Pig

Nestled into the beach town of Port Dalhousie, this is one of the best Italian restaurants in the Niagara region.

With a smoked duck pizza, twisted gnocchi and penne gamberi, there is something on this menu that everyone will love.
