We had passed by and didn't really notice, but the concierge of the hotel recommended for a great dinner, and she was right. This is a multi-floored restaurant, with each floor maintaining a cosy feeling, but still being modern and upscale. The food was fantastic, and the service was just great... read more

This is a small, cozy restaurant with very good food that suited for my American/Italian palate. The kind staff sent me home with a special soap to help me get a stain out of my white pants.

The food, service and overall experience is excellent. The building does not look much from the outside but the restaurant is quaint and tasteful on the inside. The only issue id have is the portions are small (i realise this ties in with fine dining) and its quite expensive. Its worth the experience - once, i just dont think id... More

I usually dine at Robertinos when in Killarney but this past October the host at the Inn where I stay recommended Cucina. Although she herself had not dined there her sister had and raved about it. From the moment we walked in the door ( no one greeted us) and figured out the dining room was upstairs, we were not... More

A must for those that love good Italian food. After reading some of the reviews we were skeptical, but our tour guide recommended this and I am sure glad he did. Food was fabulous. We had Eggplant parmigiana and Mussels as appetizers, the rocket salad, pasta with eggplant and mozzarella as the main course. All very fresh and delicious. This... More

Food very good. Spaghetti with pancetta and Lasagna. Service bit slow that night but staff gracious and friendly made it fine. Pleasantly noisy and happening. Would go back

We asked our Concierge at the Randles to suggest a place to get a good Italian meal. She told me about this restaurant that was off the beaten path and only a short walk from the hotel. We were more than satisfied with the service, ambiance and our meals were spectacular. We were a party of 6 and were very... More

Great, quirky wee restaurant, serving wonderful Italian food in an unusual way, nice staff. The main part of this tiny restaurant is up a steep flight of stairs but they are worth negotiating for the food is spectacular. The night we were there there were a lot of loud Americans there but even they didn't detract from our enjoyment. Recommend... More

3 of us stopped in for dinner, as one of our trio had a birthday. It was risky with the iffy reviews posted. We had great food and split a bottle of Pinot . It was intimate and very good. A bit pricey for those of us not rich , but I would go back for sure.
