“Untouchable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Visited the Restaurant this evening for the first time and was not disappointed! The Service was fantastic and everything we ordered was amazing. The Bruschetta al Pomodoro was perfect! Tortelloni Funghi, Gorgonzola e Tartufo.... absolutely the most delicious food I've ever had!!! I loved that the Café was very quiet when we went and you could watch the cook as he prepared your meal with fresh ingredients. I definitely recommend you check out this place!!

“Great escape from pub food and tourist industry.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

We were happy to find this small cafe for dinner in Waterford. Nice wine choices by the glass, the vegetarian anti-pasta was delicious. Most of the pasta dishes come with a cream sauce, just heads up.

This place is very very small. They do take reservations and I would think on a popular night it'd be worth your while to call ahead. The chef is practically in the dining room and clearly enjoys his job (was even dancing at one point), the one waiter was cheerful but his English was a bit lacking.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

Visited the restaurant in January so I was interested in the return last week when I took my Mother in Law for lunch. The MIL was a little disappointed in the decor(and probably thought that it was not up to her usual standard) but the pasta was brilliant and the service was good

Not to be missed

“Keep coming back for more !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

I must say that each time I visit this little gem of a place it never fails to impress. This is a must for anyone wanting to taste genuine Italian cooking in authentic surroundings. On my last visit, there were a number of Italian customers eating here, which for me is testament of the quality of food on offer.

“Best Italian in Waterford by far”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Totally authentic, intimate and great Italian. Waterford is lucky to have a place like this. Every town and city should have a few places of this quality. But they don't. First time in Waterford. But of I'm back, I'm here.
