“Great tasting Italian food - keenly priced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

Recently visited this restaurant with friends. We booked for the early bird menu priced at €21.95 (four courses). We were greeted by a very pleasant waiter who immediately informed us on the early bird menu and wine list.The house brushetta and vegetarian anti pasta were really tasty - however our favorite was their tomato soup. For mains we had beef strips served on bed of rocket, roasted vegetables and a choice of side order. Tagliatelle with fungi mushrooms, bacon and white wine cream sauce was another choice, both main courses were really tasty. The dessert menu included ice-cream, cheesecake, chocolate fudge cake and apple tart. We finished with coffee. On this occasion, we brought our own wine (small corkage fee). However, the wine list was quite impressive with a good selection of Italian wine with quite few few priced between €18 - €25 euro.
Overall, and for this price, we had a really nice meal, great atmosphere and a friendly service. The chef is Italian as is the waitress. If you like a nice bottle of wine and tasty food, this is the place to go. Our bill came €105 for four persons, this included the corkage of wine and champagne, and bottled water for two.

“Loved the food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

Popped in for lunch one Saturday & very glad we did. Just had a mains which was fresh & delicious. A nice generous portion arrived piping hot. Friendly laid back place. Nicest Italian I have had to date.

“a real italian treat.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Hi everyone, if for any chance you find yourself in Wexford and you are fancying italian... there is only one place where to go, Nonna rosa.
Positive: it'srun by italians and the food is cookedby italians as if you were in italy and not to please an irish taste.
I ate pizza and it was fantastic, I didn't try any wine coze I had to drive but they had a good selection.
If you want to drink a good espresso don't hesitate, it's very good.
The bill was good as well.
Negative: it's pretty small and always packed so just book in advance.

“Just poor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

Waitress was awful. I mean, she never made eye contact, asked us was our food okay, did we need anything, had to ask twice for water, she just dropped the plates onto the table and walked away, NO SMILING OR HUMAN INTERACTION AT ALL! Service was something you'd expect from an American truck stop.

The food was good (typical Italian) and it was good value. This place was recommended to me so my expectations were high going in.

Hopefully it was just a bad experience but I definitely will try another place.

“Tasty little Italian place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

Visited this place on a lovely summers evening after a pleasant couple of drinks in the nearby pub 'Sky and the Ground'. We enjoyed a lovely 2 course meal which included a lovely vegetarian antipasto platter and a great pizza. Would definitely recommend it!
