Great Dining Experience

We dined at Giovanelli's on a recent trip to Caragh Lake. A friend of ours recommended it to us and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is quite small so you'll need to book in advance. The beef carpaccio starter with rocket and Parmesan shavings was particularly good. Also the home made... read more

We'd actually come into town to try another restaurant, which turned out to be closed on Tuesdays, so we fell into this one across the street. They warned us (2 adults, with teens) that they were not a pizza and chips restaurant. That was fine by us. they did one of the best gourmet meals we’ve had. Son's pasta in... More

Friendly staff, very good and authentic Italian food. Linguine with seafood were delicious. However, I thought all in all that it was a bit expensive.

We had a wonderful meal here during our week in Killorglin. The food was very fresh (the caprese salad and tagliatelle especially) and the portions well sized. Wish this restaurant was back home in Ann Arbor!

Enjoyed a wonderful meal at Giovanelli's. The chef/owner assisted us in selecting a lovely bottle of wine to complement two very different dishes. I had a beef ravioli in a light white sauce that was rich and subtle with excellent beef flavor. Thank you for a lovely evening.

Last night my husband and I went to Giovannelli's for the first time. Many Irish friends had recommended it, and we finally made it. From the start, with the gracious welcome from our waitress (who managed with energy, kindness, and complete professionalism, to serve all five tables and two women who sat at the "bar"), to the wonderful selections from...

The waitress deserves a big payrise. She ran about all night efficiently dealing with everyone and staying smiling and cheerful. Another restaurant should make her an offer, she'd be a great asset to any team. The chef/owner on the otherhand turned up late so everyone had to wait for main courses. We both had the beef ravioli in butter and... More

Quiet on arrival, but got busier as the night progressed. This was not a cheap meal, but was certainly one of the best of our 15 day trip around southern Ireland. My black sole (E29.50)was absolutely superb. The chef's attention to detail was exemplary. Wine, as ever on this trip, was pricey.

Food was high quality but portions were tiny. Appeared to be under staffed. The waitress was clearly very rushed.
