Went here as it was recommended and first impressions were good. Quickly downhill though. Ordered pizza but it turned out to be exceptionally bland. Very little sauce and very little cheese. 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.

We ate here recently with family members home from America. The food was really good and the service top notch. The only downfall was that we were up the back of the restaurant and it was really dark. My mum took a torch out of her handbag to read the menu and then we all used it. The waitress saw... More

I have eaten here far too many times to count and I always look forward to my next visit. The food is fresh and tasty. I love the atmosphere and the staff are friendly. Garlic bread is dangerously tasty!
