All around the world is plenty of restaurants, caffetterie etc that pretend to be Italian. Italee is not one of those. When you step into Italee you feel the Italian atmosphere and courtesy. Coffee is just like back home. Savour it while the guys are preparing it for you. Breath the aroma and sip it calmly. Best in the late... More

Good coffee , food acceptable, but come for morning breakfast and watching managers who heavily criticizes the staff , makes you lose every chance to come back again some other time. Education is not' some of their best qualities . Left the shop very upset.

A popular Italian restaurant with friendly and efficient staff. Great choice using fresh produce. Everyone will find something on the menu within their taste and budget. I have visited Italee many times and always return.

I have eaten here a couple of times and have never been disappointed. Best espresso in Cork and even better value for a doppio. Food is fresh & well seasoned - very unfussy presentation. Well worth a visit if you know your Italian flavours.

This is the only restaurant in Cork that serves real Italian food, or the closest thing to it. However, the staff, including who I believe are the owners - are extremely unfriendly. They make you feel as if you have entered their living room and they want you out of there as quick as possible. The owner is always scowling... More
