Beautiful whether Lunch or Dinner! We have visited many times and have yet to have anything less than a fantastic tasting experience! Also try out the restaurant in Sandy mount! Equally as tasty!

I had a lovely lunch here recently with friends. Great city centre atmosphere and very friendly and relaxed staff. This is a good family or group restaurant, plently of hustle and bustle. Some of our party were late which did not prove an issue in any way. We mostly had the specials which were delicious. Large helpings also. Staff were... More

Booked a table for 6 o clock on a Saturday evening. The place was almost full so we were glad we booked in advance.We were told we had the table for two hours but were gone before that to a concert.It's obvious why it's popular. Authentic Italian food and our waiter was Italian also. A quick service which suited us... More

We entertained friends here at the weekend. From the minute we arrived the team were friendly, attentive and engaged with their guests for the evening. Great advice in choosing our wines. They put up with our 'pigeon' Italian! Starters ranged from a carpaccio of duck, vegetarian crostini, mozzarella, olives and meats. Mains - two specials ordered - one with beef... More

This restaurant was recommended by a Dubliner and despite being off the main drag it was busy. We got a table and the food was very good as was the service. The only reason it didn't get a 5 was due to lack of meat choices at reasonable prices. I had a great ravioli dish and the Tiramisu is lively.... More

I visited here on a Thursday evening. The place was quite busy, probably 3/4 full when we arrived. It was a little noisy for my liking however there was a good ambience. Great selection on the menu, took a little time to go through it all. I had the homemade pesto to start which was good and then their special... More

Finally we found a place where re-discover the flavors we love! It was suggested by Italian colleagues, and it kept what it promises. Great bruschetta with original pesto, awesome ravioli with mushrooms and cheese. And, last but not least, super tiramisù. A stop here is mandatory!

It has been more than a year since our last visit but everything was as good as it had always been. Excellent lasagne , good starter and a fine selection of wine by the glass. Rounded of by a macchiato and tiramisu.
