“Poor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2011

two of us visited this restaurant early one evening after work this month. The restaurant was practically empty, two other tables had people at them. As we did not have a long time to eat, we ordered a main course each with two diet cokes.The food arrived quickly and was hot. We thought the food was average to poor quality, it was pretty expensive for what we had - 41 euro for a pizza, lasange, two cokes and some garlic bread. the staff were nice but there are better restaurants in waterford who serve better food at better value.

“Nothing terrible, but nothing terribly nice either.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2011

I brought a party of 5 here on a recommendation from a staff member, who will never be listened to again. The food was edible, but thats about as far as I'd chance a critique. I tried three courses, and all were about the same standard. 3 of the others in my group had the same opinion, but the last person quite liked it. The atmosphere (it was lunchtime) was dead, and the service was perfunctory. Main courses were pricey, given the fare. Honestly ? It was more like pub grub.

“No value here. Tried it lots of times...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2010

No value here. Tried it lots of times. Love Italian food but here every dish seems saturated with salt. Service is poor and Items are expensive. This restaurant does quite well due mostly to it's location. Good effort made with decor pity same effort was not made with the food.

“Sad to say not good”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2010

This restaurant has sadly gone way down hill since it became 'Espresso'. All food seems to be microwaved to within an inch of its existence and should come with a temperature warning. Pizzas and pastas are both equally awful. I've been here a number of times and it just doesn't get any better. Avoid.
