The food was absolutely fantastic- fresh pasta, wonderful service, and great ambiance. I tried to go back for lunch but they were open @ noon which was a bit too late for me to go.

My wife and I recently had the unexpected pleasure of visiting this fine Italian restaurant. We have eaten in many of Kilkenny's Italian restaurants over the years but decided to give La Trattoria a first try for a change based on the encouraging tripadvisor reviews and we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was very good and compared well up to standard with the other Italian restaurants in Kilkenny. The atmosphere was cosy with a relaxed and friendly service. The menu was extensive with very tasty pasta and pizza and the desserts were to die for - don't miss the warm sticky toffee pudding!!! If you haven't paid the restaurant a visit yet I would highly recommend it and we will be back. It truly is a hidden gem which will not disappoint! The owner advised us that they are planning to extend the downstairs section of the restaurant and based on our experience they won't have any trouble filling it - best of luck to them with the venture.

This is an understated little restaurant in Kilkenny. We were very impressed with the owner who is on hand to oversee the restaurant. The food was very good and reasonably prices and it would be very easy to miss this place as it is not in the main part of the city. Give it a try.

The exterior could do with a makeover, but this is a fine little restaurant. Very happy with the quality of service, the price and the food quality.

My title says it all... we had Gnocchi and spaghetti & meatballs and they were both wonderful. Service was attentive and friendly. Prices reasonable. Go here for a great meal and then check out the local pubs for some traditional Irish music.

Highly recommend when you are looking for something other than pub food.
