We came to Niagara Falls just to have dinner at Il Sorriso. We ordered the bocconcini salad and 2 pizzas. The salad was very nice. The pizzas arrived and we wondered where were the toppings as well as the cheese. For that price the pizzas should have been loaded with cheese and toppings. Dessert was a little better. We ordered... More

Thank you for your comment. Authentic Italian pizzas have very little of each ingredient so that you can taste each diverse flavor. We are happy to add extra toppings on any pizzas to please your appetite. Cheers More

Stopped by this small but quaint spot on a damp, cold night and was instantly warmed to the core. Amazing stone oven pizzas quickly arrived fired in an authentic Italian oven straight from the mother land. But the highlight, wild boar polenta (don't find that everywhere) Delissioso!

As a family we do try to support independent restaurants more than chains. Last Saturday night we were in Niagara Falls and went for a walk looking for some good food that wasn't as expensive as the marked up chain restaurants along Clifton Hill area. We happened upon this spot on a side street. It didn't look like much from... More

Il Sorriso's pizza and the other menu items are delicious and always a pleasure for the palate. Il Sorriso has now become the standard which all other pizza's are measured against. Every bite is like an intense and deep emotion... Outstanding!

Visited Il Sorriso recently (Feb 17) after a movie with my girlfriend. It was about 9pm and not very busy, which was very nice. Two gentlemen were sitting at a table enjoying an espresso and conversation. The waitress was fast, friendly and courteous explaining the menu and pizza type, noting the most popular. We ordered one white and one red... More

The food is fantastic. Fresh, authentic and memorable. Had a bocconcini bruschetta - I have never had bocconcini as creamy and smooth as this. Both pizzas we ate were amazing and the closest to Italy that we've had since Napoli.

My husband and I recently visited for dinner. This small, obviously newly renovated place seemed great from the reviews I read. I say it's obviously newly renovated because when I went to the restroom at the back of the restaurant, I noticed a old couch and a bunch of boxes that I had to walk by. I definitely felt like...

This place has amazing food and the hospitality is one of the best I have had the pleasure to witness. Sofia brings together two cultures and marries them with wonderful flavours along with her amazing smile and friendly outgoing personality, that alone keeps us returning to IL SORRISO. One of the better restaurants in the Niagara Falls, Ontario area.
