A truly delicious meal here this evening. Tried 3 dishes to share, all beautifully balanced in flavours and texture, simple, clean tasting Italian (Sicilian) cooking at its’s best. The restaurant doesn’t pretend to be anything other than an humble home style dining experience. Well done,...keep up the good work!More

We ordered “Pasta all Norma” and “Pasta Pistacchio e Pancetta” and we loved every bite. Fresh ingredients and amazing quality. The most delicious pasta I have ever tried in Galway. Shoutout to Vito, the authentic Italian owner, really friendly and welcoming. We’ll come back for...sure.More

Myself and my brother booked a table here last Friday night. Food was excellent quality. I had Arancini, Lasagna and Tiramisu. Brother had Arancini, Vegetarian Pasta and Tiramisu. Double espresso I had was ultra smooth, no harshness. Vito and the staff made us feel very...welcome, chatted with us throughout, and gave us new knowledge into how food is prepared and eaten in Italy. If you want to eat authentic Italian food, and not the faux Italian food served in the big corporate restaurants, I highly recommend this restaurant.More

Based on the reviews, I was expecting this place to be really good, but was very disappointed. The restaurant itself was very cold and not welcoming at all. The arancinis were not special and we felt they were too heavily breaded and have had better...at other restaurants. The other dishes were decent, but nothing to rave about. The tiramisu was good, but we’ve had better. The cannolis were also not great and we didn’t even finish them, which is not typical for us to not finish our dessert. The prices were actually not as cheap as the reviews seemed to make it appear and the portions were fairly small for the price. So in my opinion, they were pricier than a nicer sit down restaurant considering the small portions. So unfortunately, we will not be back and disappointed that we spent our last meal in Ireland here. We haven’t been this disappointed with a restaurant in a very long time. I usually rely a lot on the reviews prior to choosing a restaurant and the reviews were way off from our actual experience.More

Such a wonderful place. Very modest in accommodations but the food speaks for itself. I had never had Sicilian food—my brother had, and he raved the entire time. Stuffed chicken with ham and cheese was amazing; my stuffed and fried rice balls with eggplant really...good. The place is extra cheap for the quality, so go ahead and order multiple things. Some may be Limited in quantity—hard to overstate how tiny this place is, so prepare to be flexible and you will be rewarded. No matter what save room for the dessert—-great tiramisu, and canoles from another universe. We thanked the mom in the back for her amazing pastries. Now my brother insists on moving to Sicily—More

I cannot praise this restaurant enough. Truly authentic Sicilian food made by people who really care that you enjoy it. The food is made fresh and is very flavoursome. Best Tiramisu ever! Can't wait to come back soon

I'm Italian and i can confirm without any doubts that Uliotru makes the best Italian food in all Galway!! Pasta, Lasagne, Arancini and Cannoli as good as the ones you find in Italy! Also the owner is super friendly and welcoming.

I’m Sicilian and I think this place is one of the best for sicilian arancini. Amazing place, the food was delicious and the owner really friendly. I’ll come back as soon as I can. Thank you for bringing me back to my city, Catania.

I wasn't sure if this was a sit down restaurant or more of a dessert place, but we decided to do dinner here based on the reviews. It is a small restaurant with about a half dozen tables. We did a full dinner, but you...could also come for just wine or desserts. The food was amazing and the owner was very pleasant to chat with. We eat a lot of Italian, but many Sicilian dishes were new to us. We enjoyed trying some new things.More
