We'been surprised to find genuine Italian cuisine in Ireland. We had good Italian pasta dressed with original ingredients. A very good Irish meat coocked to the point. I had fish: excellent.

I'm late posting a review for here but given current reviews here I see the standards at Giovanelli are still so high! A fantastic restaurant. Freshest ingredients. Simple unfussy surroundings. Wonderful. Lovely staff and great atmosphere. Just go!

“What a find”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

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.

“Skilfully produced, wonderful food”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

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,
