Well I have to say it was one of the most average pizzas I have ever eaten. Hard over cooked base with an over cooked top. Flavour was OK but would not rush back for pizza. Very dated looking restaurant with candles in chianti bottles and the walls full of Italian memorabilia. Not for me but would I guess appeal... More

Worked in Ringaskiddy for a prolonged period of time and was very fortunate to have found this little restaurant. Food is very tasty, the pizzas are delicious. The atmosphere would lend itself particularly well to a date. The food was very good value and I definitely recommend it for anyone staying in the Carrigaline Court Hotel or working nearby in...

Staying in a hotel nearby and decided to give this restaurant a try so glad we did. We were a family of 3 and we all ordered pizza, the arrived after 10 minutes and one of the best pizzas I have ever eaten in Ireland a taste of Italy in cork. Well done to the chef.

We had a very, very good meal here and considering the chef was waiting on table and cooking (it was mid-week and the waitress had the day off), the food, wine and service was excellent. I had Chilli tiger prawn spaghetti and my partner spaghetti bolognaise - yum!! We couldn't fault anything. Also, it was very reasonably priced and I... More

A group of us went to Romano's for dinner, our friends had been there before on a number of occasions and it had been ok. This time it was not good enough. Service was slow, not all plates of foid were hot, some were very salty. I love Italian food but this restaurant didn't do it justice. The decor really... More

I am more disappointed to hear this. My first day back to sicily for my annual holiday and I read this negative feedback. As you might know that my chef and waitresses are not the same people as always.. You are very fast as to not give people chances by saying you won't be back.. Very disappointing. But it's your...
