The best meal in Ireland, could not fault any dish. The chef took the time to come out to the table after the meal and have a chat. All produce so fresh..the wait staff were attentive and knew their menu..loved it

What a fantastic restaurant. We had lobster bisque, gnocci gongonzola, linguini with shellfish, tiramisu, valpolicella, and coffee - all excellent. The staff were attentive without over servicing. We have eaten at the best italian restaurants around the world and this is up there - highly recommended!

Attentive waitresses who made the experience difficult to forget. Don't be tempted by the steaks as you will miss out on beautiful freshly made pasta dishes Would definitely come... More

This is as good as it gets, genuine, authentic, true Italian. ..etc...etc. All true. From the greeting, the flavour of great food hanging tantalizingly in the inviting ambiance. ... you just know, this is good ! The coffee only matches the good. Great 5 stars all round.

This has to be one the best restaurants in Kerry never mind Killorglin! The food is really top notch but this restaurant is all the about enjoying an authentic Italian experience when you're there. The owner/ head chef comes around to every table after the meal for a quick chat and ensure you enjoyed the meal which is a nice... More

Proper italian restaurant with well presented excellent dishes. We both had the lamb which was perfectly cooked. Good italian wine to accompany the food. No beer - something to do with Irish licencing laws, but they do have Prosecco. Booking is essential as they currently only have four tables. Well worth a visit.

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.
