“great pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Heard that this was the best pizza in town and to be honest, haven't had a better one in Galway so will have to agree. Thin base, slightly crispy on the bottom, and gets better with each bite. Pastas are very good too, service good and excellent coffees. Its small but cosy. Will be going again to try some more of the great food.

“A must try when in Galway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

You will find very well done Italian food at the Venice restaurant. After several days filled with Irish meals my family was in the mood for something different. We happened upon a young man on the main pedestrian street hawking for the Venice restaurant. We agreed to give it a try. It was lunchtime so we gave the pizza a try. We were so impressed we went back the next evening for dinner. Their pasta was even better. Venice is a couple blocks offer the main street but well worth the effort to find.

“" It's tiny and brilliant... A boutique restaurant ...A must ..."”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

Went back here tonight. It was full. That's easy when it's so small. Then I listened to the accents. It was mainly local.This is Ireland's most multi cultural city. When locals vote for a restaurant it's good. I had the bruscetta to start ... Just like what I had in Rome last Friday. My partner had a veggie pizza... She claimed it was excellent. House Wine Crianza excellent. I had the pasta with Italian sausage OMG. Just perfection. The chef here is good. He knows his cooking. He knows his food. If your idea of Italian food is " ketchup type toppings"... Then this is not for you... But if you appreciate good" Iti" food.. then it's a must... But this is really small and crowded ... Thats part of it's charm...

“No. 1 ITALIAN IN GALWAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

This little hideaway has become our local italian which just attracts us time and time again. The menu is varied, the food (especially the pizza) is excellent as are the portions & very reasonable priced. Simon & staff treat their customers with extreme courtesy and now greet us as old friends. Although I do miss the head waiter who seems to have moved on.
Looking forward to returning again.
