“Lovely little place ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Passed this place many times without stoping to go in. I had an hour to kill today & felt a little hungry so decided to give it a try .

Not too busy on arrival , so got a choice of tables , which I love ( I hate being ushered to a table in an empty restaurant , I wana sit where I wana sit) .
Nice simple menu . Something for all price ranges .
Christmas decorations up ( they have made an effort )
Food arrived in good time . Very tasty , decent portion size . So good value .
Pleasant waiter , kind & friendly . All other customers seemed happy & content .
Lovely & warm & comfortable in here ( on a cold day )

All in all I really enjoyed this place , will definitely be back .
Good show guys , well done .

“Italian in the midst of Galway”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

This is a small restaurant off the beaten tourist paths. We found it via the sign man in the square. The service was immediate. The restaurant was offering two appetizers, two meals and two drinks for one reasonable price. The risotto was very good. The lasagna was average. There were fruit flies flying around during the meal which was disconcerting (on a cold November evening).

“Another good spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

I went there by suggestion and what a good choice it was. The wine was alright but the food was brilliant. The girl that looked after me was very nice, it was excellent value for money, this restaurant will be definitely one option if/when I return to Galway.

“Brilliant food and ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Discovered the restaurant because of the sandwich board guy too. It's tucked down a side street. Great authentic Italian food and exellent service.
It's small but enough room, creating an intimate atmosphere.
Best meal out that weekend in Galway.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Found this restaurant because of the sandwich board guy on main street. The place is a little on the small size but the food and staff make up for it. Will definitely go back next time in Galway
