Nice relaxed atmosphere, very classy. Had veal chop (bone included) that you remember forever. Wine is very reasonable, service is elegant. Joanna will create something special just for you - you only have to pick the wine and she will create six course meal which you will savour for the rest of your life. I would go there one a...

It was a busy night on Erie Street with the Italian bike festival, and when we arrived the band was playing directly across the street from this lovely restaurant. Although there was seating outside where all the action was, we decided to dine inside and enjoy watching while experiencing a wonderful taste of Italy. We shared the mussels marinara which... More

Want fine dining at a resonable price? I had the gnocci and my husband had the sausage and roasted tomatoe pasta. Delicious! Excellent service. On Wednesday nights pasta dishes are 1/2 off. A great mid week treat.

We started with a beautiful and freshly made seafood salad as well as antipasto that comes with their own homemade prosciutto and salami! The homemade experience doesn’t end their as we come to find out that all three pasta dishes and the gnocchi were all made in house including the perfectly spiced Italian sausage. Tiramisu for desert is worth coming... More

Awesome Italian food in the heart of Windsor little Italy. Veal saltimbocca is one of the best dishes I have had. My wife had the scallops and risotto and couldn't stop raving about it. Service was very good

There's a number of Italian restaurants along Eris St. (Windsor's 'little Italy'), but there's a select few that are noteworthy. This is one of them. Great atmosphere, small and cozy with understated décor. But the real reason to go to any of the finer establishments on Erie is for the food and service. La Contessa is no exception. The food...

My friend and I stopped for coffee the other night and were deciding on dessert. The lovely young server told us that her mother had just made the Tiramisu earlier that day. It was perfectly light and not too sweet. It was not the version with too much whipped cream but really the true Italian recipe with all of the... More

This restaurant is probably a good place to impress your guests. Authentic Italian dishes with a full flavor of the typical regional taste. We usually go there at least once a month.
