I will confess this place was my second choice when I found myself craving Italian food in Kilkenny. I stumbled upon it after another restaurant (hint: RR) turned me away rather rudely. It turned out to be a happy accident. The food here was great, the atmosphere lovely and the wait staff all incredibly friendly. I really enjoyed my pasta... More

I visit Kilkenny on a regular basis due to business. Last weeks visit was one of many and must go down as the best. As ever the food was excellent and Johnny was his usual charming self. The difference on this occasion was meeting his friends, Liam and Gerry. After a week of driving round Ireland and dining in rather... More

Myself and a business colleague visited here late on a Tuesday evening when no one else's kitchen was open. The owner greeted us and we had a very nice chat about Italy, Scotland and Las Vegas. Garlic bread was awesome and the spaghetti meatballs with secret sauce hit the spot! Thanks for accommodating us so late at night.

We visited LA Trattoria for an early bird meal. Tried to change something in the menu and was refused, politely, with an explanation. The food was great and so was the service. #55 on the list - no way!

Myself & my friend visited this lovely restuarant this evening. The staff were attentive & friendly & the food tickled every taste bud which was washed down with a lovely bottle of Montepulciano. The chef came out to say hi & I can't recommend the food highly enough, we will most certainly be back !!

We came in a light dinner. Great by a middle age women, she escorted us to a middle of the resturant table. The Place was empty. I asked for a window table and was refused. The meal was ordered, she said that no alterations to the menu, just what is listed. She did allow us to split a plate. Portions... More
