I ordered vegetable soup.. I got what can be described as puce coloured liquid with shredded pieces of potatoes/ ginger/ something else in it. The pizza base was burnt but the steak was perfect.. once I scrapped off the sauce.

Hi, Thank you for your comment. We served a lot of vegetable soup this week and had no other complaints. Sorry you didn't enjoy it. Glad you enjoyed the steak. Please come back and try some of our actual authentic Italian dishes, pizza, pasta, risotto, calamari etc. More

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...

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
