I have passed by this little restaurant many times in the last few years, and decided to give it a try. We went for Sunday lunch and the restaurant was very quiet, however the service from the waitress was excellent and all done with a wonderful smile. I ordered from the set menu and I was not disappointed in any... More

Lovely intimate setting and lovely food, but, unfortunately the mood was spoiled as who I presume to be the manger openly berated a member of staff across the entire restaurant for everyone to hear ... He was extremely unprofessional ..I found this incredibly awkward... It is a real shame as the food and service couldn't be better !

Dear diner, This is just to tell you that I feel extremely offended and downgraded by the lie you reported. I did not berate someone and let this be heard by the "entire" restaurant. As you were sitting at the table just beside the kitchen and the service station where we usually gather for service updates, I did say something... More

Had dinner here on a weekend night with my mother and sisters. Excellent food - pasta dishes full of flavour and just delicious. We will be back Only downside I would say is the service- it's slow and you are left sitting a lot- maybe less "chat" about ones self and more attention to the customers!!!

Always lovely good, fantastic and friendly service and outstanding, original wines. The manager, Angelo, always finds a table for us even if we're late and the restaurant is authentic and welcoming. Can't say enough about it!

We just dropped in for a post-work, pre-evening glass of wine and were delighted to be met by Angelo who suggested that 6 o'clock was precisely the time to indulge in the traditional Italian aperitivo (drinks and nibbles). Platters of sliced meats, cheeses, olives and breads were the perfect accompaniment to our glasses of prosecco and bottle of Barbera red... More

It far surpassed what I was expecting from a restaurant in a small Irish village. The menu choices were excellent, particularly the vegetarian options. The goats cheese & balsamic starter was very tasty but the highlight was the ricotta & porcini mushroom filled ravioli - divine! Not the most inexpensive meal I've ever had but worth every penny especially when... More

We went for the early bird menu as we havd our toddler son with us. The starter of Italian croquettes and soup were adequate but nothing special. We both had carbonara tagliatelle which was tastleless and lacked sauce. The addition of extra side orders of mushrooms and sauteed potatoes were simply fried in garlic and too much dried mixed herbs.... More

Simple as the title. Excellent authentic Italian cuisine, very friendly and attentive staff, superb atmosphere, faultless really. The selection on the menu is not massive but everything looked good and I am always very pleased leaving there. I would recommend this place to anyone, the wine selection is wonderful too.
