Very nice Italian Restaurant with reasonable prices ( soup of the day 5,-, Pizza from 10,-, meat dishes from 13,-) Modern interieur, very clean and tidy. The bathrooms are great. Quick and friendly service. Some guests braught their small children and the staff was very warm, nice and relaxed. The Pizza was large, and exellent made, really worth the money.... More

Came across this restaurant while visiting Kilkenny for the Arts Festival 2014. Attracted in by the early bird prices posted outside (which are available all day , every day except Saturday). Attentive, knowledgeable staff, good wine list and great food. Also stunning modern décor and excellent bathrooms (Gino & Gina !). Highly recommended in a city full of good restaurants

Terrible experience here. Overpriced, bland food and the service was awful. We were seated, ignored for a while and then subjected to staff who clearly would have preferred cleaning toilets to serving customers.

A good family-friendly pizza restaurant, with some of the best pizzas to be gotten in Kilkenny, and very reasonably priced too. This might not be Kilkenny's best Italian restaurant overall but you won't be disappointed if you take the family here for pizza!

Didn't seem to be much seasoning either. Toppings were lukewarm and undercooked. Wish we had walked on as there were loads of nice looking places around Kilkenny. Would recommended... More

On my way to the Kilkenny Watergate theatre I had a pizza in the Italian Connection. Great staff, a dark but cool atmosphere and a wonderful pizza, great base, excellent topping and light and tasteful on the tongue. A pleasure on a main street.
