I've had the pleasure of going to Italian connection many times over the years and not once has it been anything less than perfect. Every type of authentic Italian dish you could want on one menu - each dish presented in a modern style while staying true to its origins. Unbelievable value on the wine menu, considering the quality of... More

We got some takeaway pizza here last weekend. I ordered on the phone and arrived as promised 15 minutes later. The welcome was friendly and the food was brought out piping hot a few seconds later. Pizza had a thin base and was light but full of flavour. Without doubt the best pizza in Kilkenny and probably a much wider... More

This Italian restaurant is a gem in Kilkenny, honest Italian food made by Italian chefs and run by an Italian family. Atmosphere and the decor is top notch and modern, great wine list and friendly experienced staff. Authentic tasty Italian, at it's finest outside of Italy. Try the homemade Tiramisu!

Well we were very very pleased, decided to go into Italian Connection on Parliament St. The place looks small from the outside but it is spacious and looks fantastic inside. We Instantly felt very relaxed and cosy. The staff were lovely and obliging from... More
