Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I booked this restaurant for my family and friends over from Scotland, there were 9 of us. We were not disappointed. The food was absolutely fantastic and the service was second to none. All 9 of us had fantastic meals. We would highly recommend a...meal here.More

As galwegians, this restaurant was always one of our favourite places to go but we will never come back here again. We were gifted a voucher for here for the value of €75, which was valid for a year at the time of purchase. Even...though restaurants were closed for a significant portion of this year due to covid, the restaurant would not honour any of or even a portion of this voucher. Even if a portion or percentage of the voucher was honoured I think this would have been fair enough. I think considering the voucher was for a significant amount of money I think this is ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE customer service and we will NEVER visit this establishment again.More

My husband and I dined there a few weeks ago and it was absolutely amazing. The food was delicious and the staff were exceptional. An added bonus for being wheelchair accessible.. This is out new favorite place.. we'll definitely be visiting more often..

Limited house wine selection. Noisy and crowded. Slow, but pleasant service. Food was good, but not memorable.

Mediocre pasta, with sauce that tasted like it was out of a jar. We ordered a bottle of flat water, and they brought water with the top opened, with a label indicating it was a premium Italian water. I noticed the bottle looked like it...had been handled a lot, was a little greasy. The water tasted like it was from the tap. We told our waiter, who went to check. He informed us it was filtered water from the tap that they put in used bottles and sell for 2.50 Euros. Apparently the filter was so old it tasted like it was straight from the tap. They should not have passed this off as commercial bottled water. The service was excellent.More

Found this little gem on our fourth night of staying in Galway for a week, it was really busy which is a good sign, the manager managed to fit us in (2 couples) We was not disappointed it was the best Italian food we have...ever had, the quality the taste and even the price was brilliant. We even booked another table while there for our last night, highly recommend can’t wait to go backMore

I’m a very picky eater and found myself having a lot of chicken sandwiches with french fries when we visited Ireland last month (great meals, but after 4 or 5 in a row I needed a change…). We found this little Italian restaurant in Galway,...just off the main Latin quarter area and close to our hotel. When we arrived, the restaurant was busy and there were already people ahead of us waiting for a table, but we were all seated within a few minutes. They had an outdoor area too which helped. The food was great. We wound up getting a personal pizza, which is larger than what we’re used to in the States and an appetizer to share. The food arrived quickly and the staff were very friendly. This was a nice change and great place I would visit again if we had the chance to.More

My boyfriend and I visited Venice this week while on holiday. When we arrived we were told they didn't have our name down for reservation before I could respond we were told there was space beside the bar. The staff were incredibly rude, we were...ignored and felt uncomfortable. Our starters were nice and the cocktails were ok. After the starters we waited a good while for our mains when they arrived glass from the bar fell and went into our food. We understand accidents happen but no management came over to ensure we were alright, we had to ask for fresh food as the food was now inedible. My boyfriend and I were now upset with the managements response (none) and asked for the bill. We were told we couldn't leave as the food was ready which was impossible. The management was rude to deal with. I wouldn't recommendMore

Great atmosphere, great food and good prompt service. Very accommodating and friendly staff when we asked for a booth and gave crayons to our kids. We were lucky and just got in just ahead of a busy time with no reservation. Definitely recommend.

Visited this restaurant yesterday evening with my mum and we absolutely loved it. The service was top quality and the food was superb! The atmosphere was very pleasing aswell. I got a gorgeous tagliatelle boscaiola, mum got cannelloni and garlic bread to share. Everything was...amazing and we couldn’t recommend it enough. Will definitely be returning soon!More

The appetizer tray was excellent, with a good selection of olives, roasted peppers, meats, and cheese. However, the entrees bore little resemblance to Italian food. Both my penne puttanesca and her penne matriciana were very heavy, loaded with Parmesan cheese and thick tomatoey sauce. We...couldn’t eat either one, so left after paying. Perhaps this is the Irish version of Italian fare but, if so, we will not try again.More

Since we did not make any reservation on that Saturday evening and many other restaurants were also packed we were very fortunate that the owner of the place was very accomodating and was able to seat us. We enjoyed as apertizers Calamari Fritti and then...Risotto alla Pescatora & Ravioli con Scampi as main courses. The quality was very good and service was very fast, even though that they were very busy. GrazieMore
