Most consistant pizza I've ever had. They always have some sort of wing combo special too. The key to the Rex is keeping things old school and authentic.

The Rex has been around for years and for good reason. Their food is delicious. Service is always good and friendly. They offer a small salad bar and it always compliments your meal. Real Italian home style food. You will love it.

If you are looking for ambiance or sophisticated decor the rex is not your place but if you want delicious Italian food then the rex cannot be beat. Whether it is pizza, veal parmesan or fettuccine Alfredo you are craving you will leave satisfied. The little homemade rolls are fantastic too.

I live in Welland and drove past The Rex several times before I had the courage to go inside. Actually, it was a social group I belong to that decided to meet there, so I went along. I was very nervous walking in to what I thought was a seedy bar in a seedy area of town. When I got... More

The rex pizza is probably the best in Welland. It's been here a long time and provides great pizza at a reasonable price. Try the party tray with "the works" & u won't go wrong !

Called and made a 14 person reservation days in advance so the kitchen would know we were coming. When we arrived they didn't have our reservation, we had to move tables around ourselves so that we could sit together, the staff were rude except for the one young new girl. Took 15 minutes to have someone come and ask us... More

If they would only get rid of the one waitress that has been there for years and is miserable as can be. Move on so people can enjoy coming here!

The Rex was once the place for dinning but now I only crave the pizza. They have the best pizza in town. I take it to go because the interior is a turn off. Order the pizza you wont regret it.
