I was not expecting to find excellent Italian food in the wild west of Ireland, but the owner has been here ten years, is very friendly and welcoming, and serves the genuine article! The restaurant is spacious and very near the centre of Killorglin. Fish and fresh herbs are a speciality of the menu.

Charming, quite small restaurant, serving excellent Italian food. We sat at the bar initially, then moved when a table came free. Delicious food, interesting, reasonably priced wine list, friendly atmosphere. And my starter of a half dozen oysters was breathtakingly good, the oysters were so fresh, cool and crisp,

chose this restaurant because of the reviews,not disappointed,the staff & food was very, very .good. After the meal we went to a local bar for a few drinks, when in walked the restaurant owner & waitress who had rung around lots of bars & b&bs looking for us,as they had overcharged us by quite a lot. where else would this happen,very impressive . we always check our bills but this once we didnt,beware. only about 6 basic tables there,but best italian ive ever had by far.

Good Italian food in a nice atmosphere. Professional waitress but a little bit too busy. The prices are quite high (compared to other restaurants in the area) and it was not enough food to fill us up (even though we had three courses).

first impression of this restaurant: it does not look fancy. but the menue board promesses a lot -
and the kitchen delivers. the meat for the carpaccio was top. the ravioli (ricotta/spinach) perfect and the tiramisu was a real italian one. hard to find elsewheare. anytime again, with pleasure.
