Love this place! Amazing food made from excellent local and specially imported ingredients - fresh homemade pasta just how they make it in Italy, perfectly cooked local meat and seafood, as well as homegrown vegetables and salad. Staff are lovely and only too happy to help. There's also a deli counter at the back, so you can continue to pig... More

This is like being in Italy! That us the highest compliment I can pay this restaurant, the food is divine! Tagliatelle with tomatoes and carpaccio starters were superb, followed by seared tuna, rack of lamb and pepper steak, tiramisu affagato, and gelato, we were in heaven. Service is impeccable, friendly and knowledgable. Very accommodating when we had to change reservation.restaurant... More

Excellent Friday evening meal after arriving in Kilorglin. Specials of linguine with lobster and shellfish, and black sole really were special. Fantastic white wine that complimented the food. All staff from waiting to owner were helpful and friendly. Can't wait for my next visit.

We popped in on the off chance last night, of celebrating our 24th Wedding Anniversary whilst on holiday in Ireland. The moment we entered we were made extremely welcome and the food was outstanding - especially the tirimasu which was made in the morning! The service was efficient and friendly with a permanent dose of Irish humour and bone amis.... More

Each dish was prepared simply with wonderful flavors and all fresh ingredients. Amy was our server and she could not have been better. We told her what type of wine we desired and her recommendation was spot... More

We had read and heard many first rate reports, and we eventually got the opportunity to put it to the test last evening. It is everything that has been reported, Absolutely Excellent Cuisine, scallops and mozzarella for starters, rack of lamb (medium rare) and mussels linguine for main course, enjoyed with a classic chianti, it was all that we wanted...

This is a lovely intimate Italian Restaurant, but the menu is far better and more varied than the usual Italian. Lots of interesting fish dishes, as well as super variations on locally resourced food. Friendly and helpful service, and the food cooked beautifully by the owner. A lovely place and highly recommended.
