The food is good but the portions are rather small like the lasagna which is €12.50 and doesn't come with any chips or garlic bread where as other restaurants in Clonmel like Quimbys offer a much larger portion with chips, garlic bread and coleslaw for around €10 and it is absolutely delicious and hard to finish.

New Years Day, evening, no to busy, lots of staff on. Usual Italian style menu. Didn't know they didn't do wine, but was directed across the road to get a couple of small bottles. Chicken wings where tiny and very spicy be warned. Pasta chicken was lovely. Friendly staff . Very reasonable.

I went for my annual catch up meal with my friends last night and I was really disappointed , not by the food but by the staff, one girl in particular. We were advised when we came in at 7:30 that the resteraunt was closing at 9. After the first time they told us, we were told every single time... More

A little gem of an Italian. Seriously good pasta not your packet stuff. I got the lasagne which was a decent portion size. Side salad and chips I decided to have with it which complimented it beautifully. My husband had the steak which he said was perfectly done and very tasty.

I have dined here a few times over the years but have really been enjoying my last few visits. The food is great and not overly priced. The service is always friendly and prompt. I think the place had been getting alot of stick lately for its minimum spend on wine and cake charge. I can understand the owners reasoning.... More

This restaurant has lovely food but isn't authentic Italian. Having said that, the food is decent, reasonably priced. The steak sandwich on the lunch menu is in some sort of pitta type bread and is pretty tasty. The pizza is only okay, wouldn't recommend it if trying to decide between that and a pasta dish. Sometimes service good, other times... More

Highly recommend this place! Have eaten there numerous times and have never had a bad meal. Great for a catch up with friends as they don't rush you out the door. Extremely friendly staff. They had put up prices on my last visit but still not expensive and there is a huge selection of delicious foods to choose from.
