decided to try out this place with my girlfriend on sunday. we ordered two pasta dishes and after waiting 20 minutes we were given our food. i in particular was very dissapointed to say the least! on the plate was a few pieces of pasta, if i orderded a starter there would have been more in it, thats actually how bad it was! in the end i had to order 2 portions of garlic bread to make the meal. this was supposed to be a main course. at 14 euro a head and 4 euro for garlic bread it was very bad value for money. to conclude i will not be going back and certainly will not be recommending as a place to go! its no wonder irish people prefer to go abroad and spend their hard earned money elsewhere.

Looking from the outside in this restaurant looked lovely and most inviting, however once inside our waiter was exteremly rude to the point of almost leaving. The food was however very tastey but we would not go back due to the service, although looking and reading our peoples experiences we must have got the waiter on a very bad day.

After spending the week eating traditional Irish food I needed something different. We had the mussels appetizer and it was excellent. We ordered a pizza and a pasta dish. Both were very good. Our waiter was excellent; he was super friendly and very funny.

We searched and searched Galway and happened upon Il Folleto (after being "kicked" out) of the place next store. We were not disappointed. Our waitress (Amanda) was Fabulous! She gave excellent recommendations and made the experience one of a kind. The food (pizza, gnocchi and seafood ravioli) and wine were delicious and the ambiance of the restaurant was very nice. It ended a perfect day of touring and we would definitely go back!!
