Great take out, a bit bland eat in!

The food is great whether you eat in or take out. The price is good either way. Try the crostini Al fungi for starter and penne pasta with broccoli and chicken. It will sort you back less that €20pp and that includes a glass of Pinot!. Great for a group or just two 😀

We booked earlier in the day, but were seated at a table next to the entrance. Each time the door opened we got a blast of cold, damp air. I asked to be seated somewhere else, but I was told that it was not possible. At a glance, I could see at least one vacant table for 2, but it... More

Due to a spur of the moment valentine's vacation, we were at a loss with somewhere to dine as most if not all places were fully booked. Found this little gem who were willing to accommodate on short notice with delightful and generously portioned dishes. Will be visiting again when in Westport.

Was in westport for hill walking weekend. We ate here the first nite. I thought the food was just gorgeous I had a starter of the specials menu then I had a seafood risotto and this was probably the tastiest dish I have had in 2014 anywhere!! So well done to whoever created it.

This unpretentious Italian restaurant surprised us: the food was delicious and the service was excellent. With another couple, we ordered pasta dishes, a pizza, and salads, and all of us thought it was one of the best basic Italian meals we had had for a long time. We also ate at a higher priced Italian restaurant in Westport and were... More

Myself and a few work colleagues ate here as an end of summer work party in August 2014. The issue I had was the hair I found in my prawn starter! In my opinion this is careless in a professional kitchen. Although the waitress was apologetic when it was brought to her attention, my replacement starter which was soup did... More
