Visited with friends from Athlone whilst on holiday. One of the best Italian meals i've had. Portions are humungous for the price. Had 3 courses, all of which were lovely, but the banoffee pie, out of this world!!

Have eaten here a few times. Each time it has been better than the last. The service is top class and the same with the food. Very good priced food and portion size. Boyo is also a great feature!

Good food and nice environment. Like this place , if you are on waiting queue then you can go down to have some pints at the bar and then they come down and take you to your table.

Our daughter is at College in Athlone, and she recommended this restaurant. It's in the town centre, above a pub, and next door to an Off-licence (you can buy a really good bottle of wine and bring it up to the restaurant with you).
