This is a good Resturant with lovely food but it could be so much better. It is fairly expensive, probably too expensive for what it gives you. The decor is very sparse and leaves the place lacking atmosphere and character as a result. The service is efficient but it memorable, Kerry is one of the most magical and memorable places... More

We spent 5 nights in Killareny and this was by far the most exciting and tasty dinner of our trip. Excellent food, service and wine - what more could you ask for? Try it foryourself :)

If your idea of Italy is sitting in a sparsely decorated room, filled with Ikea furniture with little or no atmosphere then Cucina will suit you just fine! The food, however good is totally overpriced and overrated. It's interesting to see that the only great reviews on here are from tourists who, whilst on holidays don't mind spending excessively for... More

it was an excellent scallop, in an excellent presentation, but when you order the scallop appetizer at approx. 12 Euros, you expect more than one scallop. The veal was tasty and well prepared. But at $30US it did not come with a salad. The accompanying potato, a double-baked potato dis-enrobed from its potato skin was very good. The pasta Ragusa... More

This is a perfect little place for a quiet dinner. We stopped here because another restaurant my husband hoped to try wasn't open and we were perfectly delighted with the menu and staff. Every dining in the small restaurant talked as if we all knew each other (all travelers) as we raved about our wonderful meals. I highly recommend this... More

This was really a great find in a great town. Just a bit off the beaten path, but more than worth spending an evening if you need some Italian to break up the blur of pub food! From the welcoming and attentive staff, to the quaint, romantic atmosphere, to the surprisingly authentic and scrumptious food, and finally the great selection... More

Was one of the best, if not the best meal during our whole trip to Ireland! Tucked in an alley, but restaurant was packed when we arrived, happy to have made a reservation first! Delicious meal, excellent service plus wine and beer selection. Not a red sauce Italian restaurant, very contemporary, everything fresh!
