“OOOHHH DEAR !!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

My partner and I were in Kilkenny for a nice well deserved break. There is quite a few Italian restaurants in Kilkenny offering great deals, unfortunately we chose the wrong one. My partner couldn't finish her pizza, it was very bland. When we told the owner she just said that the pizza we ordered was a bland pizza....... Funny when you look back that we accepted this, but their loss. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant, maybe they were having an off night......

“What a find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

When I return to Dublin, I will drive to Kelkenny again just to eat at this restaurnt, the proprioter and his brother where friendly and welcoming , the food was delicious and the prica was more than fair, we where told by a local, after asking for the best Italian restaurant in town, we were told La Trattoria was the only place to get Genuine Italain food from a genuine Italain, man was he right!!
If your ever in Kilkenny, and want home cooked Italian food served hot and fast,
I don't think you will be dissatisfied

“Nice warm homely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

We arrived in town late to discover there were no open kitchens and this place was no different. Extensive begging to the local waitress and her chef husband yielded the desired result and we were invited inside and for this we are very thankful and recomend this place and town to every one planning a trip to ireland. Food was fresh and tasty with on-site baked pizza with authentic Italian style. Atmosphere was warm and decor was nice and relaxing

“Best in town by a mile!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

This is the best food in Kilkenny and the only 'real' authentic Italian Restaurant. The food is very tasty and if youve been to Italy, it is very authentic. The owner/chef is also a very nice friendly person and takes time to chat with you. Eating there is a very personable experience.

Best in town by a mile.
