“Gorgeous staff, food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

We have enjoyed two meals here in the past week during our stay in Killorglin. Both times the staff (two young girls) were charming and attentive. The menu is succinct and the ingredients are gorgeous. Fabulous Italian food in an intimate environment, be sure to book! Owner was charming too. We have always frequented the Biancone opposite so it was a nice change for a couple of evenings. We will be back soon.

“A gem in Killorglin!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Who knew that Killorglin could be the location of an exceptional Italian restaurant! Daniel the chef/owner greeted us and spent time with us selecting just the right things for our dinner. Special dietary requests (celiac) were accommodated beautifully, my wife felt very special to have the chef prepare something that she could eat without worry and that was unbelievably good!!!

The wine selection was very nice, perfect pairings with the menu offerings.

We tried to get in on a second night later in the week but there was a private party occupying the entire restaurant. No problem, we enjoyed our first visit and will definitely return.

“Great Italian with Freshest Ingredients”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Daniel and occasionally his wife (who also paints and sells water colours) can be found on the main street of Killorglin, Co. Kerry. The food is fresh, cooked as it should be and not traditional Irish "well done". The coffee is excellent. This is not a budget restaurant, go around the corner on Langford Street for a decent Cod and Chips for around 7 Euros. I had the best and freshest scallops two weeks ago. Sweet and not over cooked. I was asked if I wanted the coral (beard) taken off or not. The Irish fillet of beef was not overly large, but cooked as requested and a beautiful cut of meat. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes good food at a reasonable price. Daniel will discuss the food, when it was bought and how he proposed to cook it. The wine is reasonably priced and very drinkable.

“If there was 6* available I would use it!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Fab fab fab! Tasty fresh food, lovely atmosphere. A firm favourite. Everything is lovely from the linguine to the lamb, ravioli to wine. And be sure to have the Tiramisu for desert!

For families, friends or lovers it's just the place to go.

“Fabulous food”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Best Italian food I have had by far. The staff is knowledgable and attentive. Authentic Italian food in a warm relaxing atmosphere. In our group of eight our orders varied from seafood to filet of beef to pasta, simply delicious. A gem. Highly recommend a visit.
