Stumbled upon this restaurant on an overnight trip for the Festival of Lights. Loved the Christmas decorations outside and the inside was nicely decorated as well. Menu reminded me of an Olive Garden type of place (but I must say this place was more authentic tasting by far). Our waitress was AWESOME! We all loved our food and the cheesecake... More

This place has great food, very large portions, very reasonable prices. The service was good and it is conveniently located near several hotels and has free parking. Good place for families as well as couples or business lunc.

Had it not been for My Cousin Vinny's lady staff who was considerate, I would give this restaurant a poor rating. Do not order the crab cake appetizer from this restaurant. You will be served bread crumbs cake. The lady took my plate with the broken bread crumbs all over, proof that no crab meat was part of the preparation.... More

We were wandering around after fleeing the Outback due to their Ruth Chris type prices. We spotted Vinny's and decided to split a pizza. Selected the Sicilian, which arrived promptly. It was quite good with lots of meat and cheese and a good crust. A bit on the spicy side due to the salami and pepperoni, but not too spicy... More

The service was okay. I ordered a pizza, which was hot and average tasting; however, my boyfriend’s meal was warm not hot. The food was pricey. I am pretty sure that we would not return here for a meal if we were to return to Niagara Falls, Canada.

Again this food was okay quality but not authentic Italian like it says, Food was okay priced but not that tasty. Good for something quick.

Spent a few days in Niagara Falls, on a rainy night stopped in at My Cousin Vinny's. The service was great, the food was great as well. Had the pasta primavera, and the lasagna. Both very good. Portions are very large so there was no room for dessert, unfortunately. maybe next time.

I ordered the pizza and it was a large gooey mess. The dough was thick, olives were out of the can and all together yuck!

The service at My Cousin Vinny's was great the night we were there and the portion size is humungous. Food tasted as good as it looked. Certainly needed a "doggy bag" for the left overs.

Ended up here to eat around 10pm after a long fiasco at Ruth's. A little pricey. Staff was incredibly polite, friendly knowledgable and accomodating. Ordered lasagna and penne with chicken. It was ok. But no better than I make at home. Italian restaurants are never my first choice. Always very expensive for pasta. And never taste any wow factors.....

Thank D H
