My wife and I stayed at Via Veneto over the Family Day long weekend (3 nights). We had a lovely time. We roomed in "Verona," which had a comfortable queen bed and ensuite washroom with a tub. Breakfasts were incredible - bottomless tea/coffee, fresh fruit, croissants and other pastries to start, a hot main course, and then dessert (thank you, Chef Joe)! Breakfast was so plentiful, we didn't need to eat lunch, even though we burned through some serious calories snow-shoeing at Ball's Falls after. Maria is a dear and thoughtful host, we also get chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of rosé on Valentine's Day. We'll be back in the summer for sure!

Like in the moovie "Under Tuscan Sun" - The white stucco house, reddish roof, beautiful gardens. The rooms are nicely decorated, simple and classy, and clean. Giuseppe (Joe) is a chef by trade and the breakfasts he prepares are out of this world!! Looking at the photos of his mouth watering creations on the website is only half the satisfaction. To taste the amazing spread now that's a totally different story!! We consider Via Veneto to offer the best breakfast in Niagara-on-the-Lake, truly Italian food and Italian hospitality. During one of our lovely morning chats, Joe showed us his name and recipes in the book “Chefs of Niagara” where he appeared years ago when working as an executive chef in one of Niagara restaurants, and his reward from the Mayor of Niagara. We will be back next season.


The multi-course breakfast continues to steal the show here. Highlights of this year were poached eggs over polenta with smoked turkey and spinach, an omelet garnished with a perfect crispy take-off on a potato pancake, and a goat-cheese-and-arugula bruschetta before the hot course, follow by delicious dessert.
