We dined here in a Saturday night and while it wasn't very busy, the food and service were top notch. We both had bruschetta to start, with Peroni beer, and they were delicious and tasty. Plenty of tomatoes and dressing. The beer was excellent and we got a bonus half pint, as the keg ran out while pouring the 2nd... 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...
