We were greeted by a lady who was very rude to start with,followed by a very long wait for our food.When we asked how long more it would be,a bald waiter came over... More

My wife, myself and friends ate here last Friday night, there was a great atmosphere from the time we stepped inside the door. The staff were genuinely welcoming. The menu has great choice, we had starters, mains and even a couple of deserts to share they sounded so good. Meatballs were so tasty and the ravioli with crab and prawns... More

We enjoyed an anniversary dinner at Rinuccini in August of this year. The food was authentic Italian, which we loved. We had been traveling the country by car and just wanted a nice pasta dinner and we were not disappointed. Even the waiter sounded authentic Italian! This place is right across the street from Kilkenny Castle. The entrance makes it... More

My boyfriend and I were kept waiting over an hour for our food. We both ordered steak. We didn't have a starters. After 50 minutes of waiting for it, we asked a waiter if there was any chance of receiving it soon. The waiter didn't answer and sent a manager over to us, who promptly told us that "the food...

We love to eat here when in Kilkenny. The food is delicious just look at the menu- so much choice. The pasta is divine and the sauce is authentic Italian and a fab dessert menu. A great selection of wines at reasonable prices. This restaurant is sophisticated enough to make dining here a special occasion. Very conveniently located and plenty... More

My wife and I are regular diners at Rinuccini. The meat balls in sauce are the best we've tasted anywhere in the world!! Good value and excellent service at all times.

I confess that while I loved the Irish countryside and people, I am not a fan of the Irish cuisine. My wife and I wanted Italian for a change. We saw this place listed here and highly rated. We tried it and loved it. The service and food was great even if this place would have been in downtown Rome.... More

We enjoyed our culinary experiences in the many Irish restaurants we ate at during our three week adventure. But once in a while we took a break and dined of another ethnic cuisine. This is an authentic Italian restaurant that gave what we were desiring at the time. The food was very good and the service excellent. Nice atmosphere and... More

We ate here recently. The service was fantastic and very professional. The food was 'to die for'. I had the scallops to start, very tasty, simple, quaint presentation. For main i had the fish. It was the best haddock i have ever tasted, really outstanding. Dessert was equally delicious. The restaurant is very cosy and nicely decorated. Really cant wait... More
