“Wow ! We Managed To Get A Reservation !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

A couple of weeks ago, my partner and I spent two nights at this delightful and constantly admired B&B facility. All of the praise is well earned and truly justified. That is , obviously , the reason that acquiring a reservation on the spur of the moment is generally impossible. But, never give up , it is well worth the effort.
Italian born Carlotta and her charming husband, Cash, have created a residence that exudes a welcoming warmth as soon as you pass through the door. We happened to occupy The Medici Room, which is apparently the smallest. Nevertheless, there was plenty of room for us , and all of our luggage, to reside in great comfort. Unlike the other three rooms, The Medici does not have its own balcony. Nevertheless, beautifully manicured garden facilities provide ideal space for relaxing.
Breakfast is an occasion !! I am sure that we counted five or six courses , consisting of delectable home-cooked specialities . Weather was excellent, so we were able to enjoy this delicious meal outside on the beautiful terrace. Whether inside or out , four individual tables were set up so that guests could enjoy their breakfasts quietly on their own, or they could converse with other guests if they chose. Also, the fact that breakfast was offered between 8.30am and 10.00am was a very positive feature for us. Sharah, Carlotta's cute and loveable Italian mother, was there to help serve breakfast and also to add further authenticity to this Italian-themed Bed and Breakfast facility. What a 'charmer' she is . You want to take her home , but that would undoubtedly upset other family members !! As far as we could see, Beverley completed the permanent team, ensuring that our accommodations were totally up to standard .She carried out this responsibility with smiles and great efficiency.
Located just a very short walk away from the theatres , shops and other places of interest , La Toscana di Carlotta B&B is a ' must' for our next visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake, as long as we book in well in advance. So many thanks to you all . -- Ron and Peter , Port Hope , Ontario.

Room Tip: Even the " smallest" room provided perfect space.

First time we stayed at La Toscana but won't be our last! We have already booked for next year! Beautiful ground floor room with our own little patio. Carlotta and Kash and Carlotta's Momma were amazing hosts! Breakfast on the outdoor patio was so good and we enjoyed talking to Carlotta , Kash and the other guests! It is also located on King Street which is walking distance to many restaurants and shops. Had an awesome time and felt like we were were staying with family! Can't wait until next year!!

This was the nicest B&B I have ever stayed at. Free parking, close to main street, beautiful linens and towels, comfy bed and very spacious room and ensuite, exceptional breakfast and very friendly owners.

My lovely wife of twenty years picked this bed and breakfast. By far it was the most wonderful bnb we've ever stayed at. The rooms were perfect. Not to mention, having the balcony was very nice for early morning coffee or an evening snack. The breakfast was amazing with a taste of old Italy. Carlotta, Kash, and Sarah (Grandmama) were the most delightful hosts. The location was just right with proximity within walking distance of all the shops plus the theatres, and numerous restaurants. We were so pleased with our stay and will be staying here again!

Room Tip: Any room is perfect

This is the second year I've stayed at La Toscana. Last year I chose it because I love Florence and all things Italian. I was NOT disappointed. I've stayed in two different rooms and both were excellent. There was lots of room for hanging clothes, lots of drawers, a good hair dryer and lots of room in the bathroom for moving around and for storage. The breakfasts are definitely not Italian. They give you several small courses at the beginning and the end with a large entree. The poached eggs with smoked salmon - no heavy beschamel/besciamella - was absolutely delicious. And who ever thought of dessert for breakfast? One day it was gelato; the next an apple tart, Italian-style, light and tasty. I would highly recommend this wonderful taste of Italy in NOTL. Thanks to Carlotta, Kash and Signora Shara for an outstanding two and half days.

Room Tip: Have stayed in both The Medici and The Brunelleschi. The Medici is slightly smaller but still big en...

We decided to spend 2 days at La Toscana this year and celebrate Canada Day at N-O-T-L, and we were not disappointed. Stayed in our favourite room, the Brunellischi, with its big bathroom and comfy balcony that has a great view of King Street. As in our stays for the last 5 years, Carlotta was forever the friendly and gracious hostess, as was Kash, her significant half and her mother , Sharma, who comes from Florence, Italy every Shaw season to help out. The room and the whole house were in immaculate condition. We were blessed with good weather both days to have breakfast in the lovely patio facing King Street. It was so good to enjoy a scrumptious 4 course breakfast after a great sleep. La Toscana and its hostess and host certainly make our stay so relaxed and memorable every time we visit. Naturally, our stay would not have been perfect without a visit to Carlotta's Il Gelato di Carlotta for the organic hazelnut gelato, the best in Canada.

We’ve been going to Niagara-on-the Lake for the Shaw Festival nearly every summer for the past fourteen years and have stayed in a number of bed and breakfasts.
La Toscana di Carlotta, where we stayed last year and returned to this year, is among the best of them. Carlotta, her husband Cash and Carlotta’s mother, Shara are warm and welcoming, as is their dog Maya, a large polite and friendly Goldendoodle. The rooms are lovely, very comfortable and the breakfasts delicious, always finishing with a desert, and they carry us through the whole day until dinnertime.
When we plan our future trips to Niagara-on-the Lake we will look forward to staying again at La Toscana di Carlotta.
