The nicest restaurant after a long week, for Friday night drinks with the ladies. Excellent friendly service. Fantastic, chilled & relaxed atmosphere. Excellent value for money. Gorgeous food with a huge variety of fresh dishes to chose from. The house pinot is divine! Located in the heart of KK City close to everything.

Circumstances: Dinner for two midweek late evening Venue: Dark décor, clean and tidy, practical layout. Staff: Bit uninterested and didn't seem like waiting tables was something they wanted to be doing. Food: We contemplated a starter but decided against when we saw that garlic bread was €7, bit steep. We had a pizza each, they brought out the wrong pizza... More

I used to visit this restaurant when visiting friends and it's perfect for sitting in, enjoying your food, and relaxing with a big glass of wine or two. Now, I've moved closer to the area and enjoy regular visits. Each time I visit- the staff are very friendly and the service is consistently good. The food portions are generous and... More

My pizza was exactly as I'd expect from a real Italian. My husband had superb veal cannelloni. It isn't often we see cannelloni on a menu so he was thrilled it was there. Lovely staff, Lovely restaurant. Opposite Rothe House so we had lunch there before we visited that attraction.

If you visiting Kilkenny, you must also visit Italian Connection restaurant. It's really friendly staff, lovely design and unbeatable taste of food. Highly recommended by me and all my friends. We had a pleasure to order a best meal in Kilkenny. All Italian pizzas, pastas and steaks. No one got disappointed, also about the menu prices. Thanks. See you again... More
