Best Italian in drogheda

I have never tasted nicer bruschetta then the type you get in simona cafe. The place is a credit to the town of drogheda. I love going there with friends and or family. Daniel is a credit to the place but all the staff are amazing! Would highly recommend the penne arribiata and the coffee is... read more

This is the real deal. Food is amazing, freshly cooked and daily specials are worth trying. But, the service is abysmal. This restaurant does not open for dinner, so many of their lunch time diners are nearby workers, who have limited time for lunch. And it does not work when you have to wait up to half an hour for...

Went to Simona yesterday, been supporting the place since it opened years ago. I booked a table, as you have to do for lunchtimes, turned up and we were seated fine. Then one of the waiters came over to query the name I booked under. Then the manageress comes over, what name did I book under, when did I call,... More

If Italy ever invaded Drogheda and settled this is where they would eat. It's Italy by the Boyne. The food is of a very high standard, I would drive out of my way for the coffee and the service is top drawer. I recommend a pizza slice, Focaccia Diavolo and a glass of white wine. Thank you Simona

Lovely food in Simona. Popped in for some lunch last week. Clearly popular. Very friendly service. We had tuna focaccia and roast pork ciabiatta. Lovely! Will definitely return to try the pasta. Looked fantastic with generous portions.

A busy cafe so reserving a table is advised I visited this cafe only once before and was surprised on my return that the waiter remembered I was dairy intolerant. There is a bit of a wait for your meal epecially during the busy lunch period but the food is worth waiting for, it's nicely presented, tasty and reasonably priced... More

A group of us popped in for a quick bite before work. Nice restaurant but small. The menu choice is fantastic, so much to choose from. I ordered the steak sandwich medium cooked. It was perfect so juicy and tende, there wasn't a pick of fat. Service was good nothing spectacular but I would definitely say it lives up to... More
