You get the personal attention of the owner / chef and his food is really good. Suggest you book early as he has limited space and as the food is so good he is very popular

We were finishing up a three week trip to England, Wales and Ireland and I can honestly say this was the best meal I had on the whole trip. The ravioli was excellent and the steak melted in my mouth. Really this was top notch Italian food!

Decided on this restaurant during an overnight stay in Killorglin, Did not to expect to find a traditional Italian restaurant owned and run by a Milanese in this part of the world. Excellent waitress with a cheery smile showed us to our table. Very clean and tidy dining area. Menu on a chalk board added to the 'family Italian' atmosphere.... More

Charming Italian restaurant in Killorgan. Pasta, Kerry lamb and beef all cooked perfectly complimented by friendly service. Slight delay on receiving main courses but owner/chef did apologise in person which was nice. Would like to return but a bit pricey with kids. (our mains ranged from €17.50 - €32).

Everything that we had here was perfect, from the house wine to the home made pasta. I have an oyster starter followed by home made ravioli, and home made tiramisu. The bill at the end was also reasonable. Definitely worth the visit if you are in Killorglin.

Celebrating Puck Fair and returned to our favourite restaurant, "Giovannelli's. From start to finish, fresh home grown herbs and vegetables, to the wild sea bass, and perfectly cooked lamb. Owner/ Chef was his usual charming attentive self. A meal to remember.

We returned here after an absence of two years. If anything, the quality and taste of the food served has improved. We had lobster and wild salmon with potatoes and veg. Both were outstanding food. Service was very good.

A few tables, high quality and customer focus. Great care raw materials, vegetables are grown directly from the owner, Daniele, chef of the restaurant. We tasted bruschetta, caprese, homemade ravioli, fettuccine shellfish & lobster, a great salmon. Recommended.
