Always heard good reviews about this place so decided to give it a go. We arrived on a Friday evening with no reservation. They were very accommodating and got us a seat in 20mins. We had a glass of wine at the bar while waiting. There was a good atmosphere and the decor is lovely. Then the food. So disappointing.... More

I've dined in Bistro Bianconi twice now on visits to Sligo in 2013 and over the weekend of 23rd May 2015 when I ate there with a group of friends. This restaurant is very conveniently situated for Sligo centre in the town's small Italian quarter, and it's buzzing atmosphere gives it a happy ambience that makes it a very pleasant... More

We came to this eatery with lofty expectations and we're not disappoibted. The cheesy garlic bread is some of the best we have ever tasted. We ordered the Michelangelo pizza and it was delightful. The crust was thin and crispy but unburnt, and all the toppings were high quality. Should we find ourselves in Sligo again, looking for Italian, we'll... More

This restaurant never fails to disappoint. I have traveled to many places but never had a better Pizza than here. It is on the expensive side but worth if for me.

Despite the fact that I have never been in this restaurant at its new location in Tobergal Lane the end product is still the same as it was when I dined in it at its O'Connell Street location many years ago and fairly regularly too. The nicest Pizza base (IMO) and a varied range of toppings to complement it. (Its... More

The service, on a VERY busy Saturday eve, was excellent. This was at a table of 17 hungry men. Every one of us was really well fed, got seriously tasty dishes, with excellent wines & beers to compliment it all.
