This is Little Italy and probably the best place in town to eat. Lot's of choice available from Pizza joints to up market restaurants, with outside seating. Parking is a real chore though. 2nd visit here

Imagine our surprise to find Little Italy in Canada! Erie Street in Windsor is a nice collection of stores and restaurants that are all Italian. We dined at a sidewalk cafe with delicious Italian cuisine. Not much happening after dark, so we went to the casino.

Many nice Italian restaurants as well as Italian shops. You are in the middle of Little Italy. Great for lunch, dinner,shopping or just the place to grab a cappuccino!

Italy has made its mark in Windsor. Via Italia, also known as ERIE STREET is home to Italian slops, bakeries, restaurants and even a church. Only inconvenience is limited parking, but worth the trip for authentic Italian and Sicilian foods and goods1

We had a really good meal. The service was good. The prices were mid-range, and good for the quality of food. We would go back.

A variety of restaurants, gift shops and groceries catering mostly t Italian tastes. Worth the trip and all the restaurants ave their signature on the street. The ice cream parlour with homemade gelato and the Italian men sitting on the stoop is so characteristic of this street. Go.

Thank Patricia L
