We called in this evening 2 adults 4 kids aged 9 to 4, we were seated and order taken within minutes, garlic breads for starters and 4 main courses to share, the food was excellent and staff were helpful with spare bowls and plates as we divided our dishes. Great value and pastas were so fresh and tasty. It's our... More

We walked in on a Sunday around 5PM.. needless to say, there were very few people in the restaurant. We were seated by a window and promptly noticed that there were bugs--flies, spiders, other tiny insects--buzzing around, as well as dust in the sills and on the neon sign in the corner. There was one other couple in the room.... More

We ordered pizza and it was good. Just regular pizza. The arugula salad we had was fresh and tasty. The food and service was fine. We've just had better pizza, is all.

This was a very nice restaurant, just over the bridge from Kilkenny Castle. The decor was nice and I felt a little underdressed after a day of touring and driving. However, they didn't bat an eyelash. The food was wonderful and a very welcomed break from the pub food we had been eating over the last few days. The garlic... More

The salmon did not taste very fresh... salmon is a favorite choice and did not compare well to Lord Bakers in Dingle (excellent) and Out of the Square in Clifden (incredible). The appetizers and wine were excellent. The double fudge cake was delicious. Good selection for weary tourists overall at a reasonable price. If not for the salmon, I would... More

My partner and I have been here several times and always find the staff to be friendly and helpful and the food to be delicious and filling. The portion sizes are perfect (and we'd eat alot usually so the more the better :-)). I think the restaurant is decorated nicely with a cosy intimate atmosphere. Totally recommend La Trattoria if...

Had visited La Trattoria on another trip to Kilkenny which was lovely so a natural choice to go again. We were looked after by a very nice lady and food & wine was served very prompt. The food itself was disappointing. I had wondered if the establishment has changed ownership since I was there last. The food was not authentic... More

This was our 3rd time eating in this restaurant. Food is superb, one little criticism my husband ordered steak, (forgot to ask for pepper sauce) it might be an idea if whoever takes the order would offer a sauce just in case people forget to order! Other than that no complaints, excellent wine list and their beer is also very... More

This is a must In Kilkenny, the best Italian Restaurant in Kilkenny. You will get value for money here, the portion are good, food is fresh, if you like the real Italian carbonara (no cream) the chef will do it for you!!! Italian chefs, fab meatballs spaghetti. No children menu but offer starter portion, my children love the food there.... More
