The food was okay, nothing to write home about. The wait staff was nice and they suggested a few items not on the menu which were tasty. Go for the friendly staff and stay for a glass of wine or two.

Strolling along in the rain and we say the signs for this cute little spot. The staff was vaguely aloof - similar to our experience in the real Venice, truth be told, but the food was satisfying and the wine tasty. All of the tables...More

If good Italian fare is what you're looking for, this place ticks all the boxes. The usual range of Italian favourites - pizza, pasta plus meat and fish dishes - all well cooked and presented. The service is prompt and efficient rather than friendly, but...More

It has a reasonable atmosphere although can be noisy. The food is reasonable without being spectacular. Menu is adequate. Service is good. It is a good solid meal. Based on Irsih prices it is average.

Really busy and buzzy Italian restaurant in Galway City. As a lone diner sometimes it hard to find somewhere you feel comfortable in. Staff were very friendly and could find no fault with the food either.

My wife and I stopped in with a friend for lunch. My wife had the bruschetta as an entrée and enjoyed it very much. I had the spaghetti carbonara and it was expertly done -- noodles al dente and rich creamy sauce although I'm not...More
