We enjoyed our first dinner in Ireland - pretty good Italian meal and good service. Some menu items not available - perhaps let guest know before they decide what they'd liek,

“Best place we found in Trim”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Maybe the headline is faint praise (Trim Castle Hotel bar was bad, Brogan's Steakhouse was out of business), but Franzini's actually was good enough that we ate there twice during a three-night stay in Trim in which we explored Bru Na Boinne, went into Dublin, etc. Franzini's has a big menu, with ample portions, and some pretty good food overall. The service was more than adequate for our group of seven. If there was a better dining experience in Trim, we didn't see it ...

“Poor service, average food”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We ate here on the recommendation of our b&b host and we have to say we were disappointed. The restaurant was busy, but not full and it seemed to be understaffed. We had made a reservation and were seated promptly and our drink orders taken. The server did not take the food order and we had to wait at least 15 minutes for the manager to do so. A bizarre concept. The meal (ribs, salad) was average. The aggravating finale was having to wait for at least 15 minutes for the bill after having asked for it. When it finally arrived, it was the wrong bill. We waited at least another 10 minutes for the correct copy. Food - average. Service - poor. Would we return? No.

“Excellent Food & Service”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Our first night in Trim we enjoyed a delicious dinner at Franzini's, which was a restaurant recommended to us by one of the guests staying at our hotel. We were so pleased with the food, service and atmosphere, that we ate dinner there two more times! The manager & wait staff recognized us, each time we came back, and we were treated like royalty! Each meal was excellent and the wait staff was always very attentive. It was nice to dine in a restaurant where
your business was truly appreciated. (Can't say that about one of the other restaurants, in Trim, that was recommended to us!) We would definitely dine there again!
