I had dinner in three occasions last January. The staff was attentive and very nice. The dishes were big and really enough. The place was a bit small but we were very comfortable.

I really enjoyed the food at La Cucina. The staff as previous posters have said arent the best. Totally disinterested except for one girl who was trying her best to keep the whole show going. No interaction with customers. Cosy restaurant with excellent food. Best go as a party of 2 or 3 people. Space is at a premium.

This place was excellent. Small and cozy; wonderful food!!! Authentic Italian and very accommodating, even if a little crowded; but that's the charm.

A lovely small restaurant with great fresh food! Was in with my wife and baby - not much room for the pram, and it was made very welcome! Popular with students (deals available) I'd recommend!

To this day i haven't found a better pizza in Limerick, great price and top notch ingredients, they also sell a bit of italian food, bit pricey but worth it, i prefer to take the food away as the place is tiny and it is a bit crowded at times.

I have always been a huge supporter of La Cunina Castletroy and have made several recommendations to colleagues friends and family on the wonderful food served here always excellent and has never let me down. However it's time I made a stance against the rude and incompetent staff that now seem to hold the mantle here and are more concerned... More

I can honestly say i have never been treated so poorly in a restaurant. Rude, inattentive staff. Food took ages to come out, not surprised as there was another large party there who hadn't received their mains, but the least they could have done was warn us of the wait. 11 of us were totally squashed into the tables, there...
