Passing through Waterford, please give this Italian a call for lunch and you will not be left short, the place is as good as you will find in the city. the food is very well flavoured and authentically right. House wine is fine too. Location perfect with the quay parking available.

Went on a wet Friday night without a reservation and had to come back 10 minutes later as they had to see if they had a table. Food was very good. The starters of mussels and bruschetta were great and the pizza and pasta dishes we had were both very good. The tiramisu for dessert was nothing special though. There was a bit of a wait between the starter and the main but it was worth it in the end. When we left, we were told to make sure we made a reservation next time which we both thought was an odd thing to tell us. Overall it was a nice place to go with decent food, friendly service and reasonable prices.

Excellent food and service. Group of us were there to celebrate a birthday. range of food ordered from prawns, goats cheese and mussels for starters to pizza, scallops and monkfish for mains and finishing off with toblerone icecream as dessert of the day.
Only downside was a table near us had a little dog on their lap which I cannot understand was allowed and we did tell the waiter we were not impressed, and he said they didn't see the dog until the customers were leaving!?! But had a full blown conversation with the couple......

Anyway apart from that would highly recommend and definitely return if I was in Waterford again.
