This is a tiny restaurant (maybe 24 covers) serving delicious Italian food. On a blustery night, we were warm and cozy and enjoyed our various pastas and pizzas.

We had a lovely meal here last Wednesday night 4th January. The restaurant itself is very small so we were lucky to get a table and thanks to the waiters for taking our pram out the back for us. The menu has plenty of choice. Food and service was excellent. This was our second time in this restaurant and we... More

I've lived nearby for about a year and discovered this place my first week. I've probably been back 30 times since. Small and intimate, I'd guess about 12 tables total. Great food and great staff, salt of the earth. What you see is what you get; there's nothing fancy about the place - it's all about the food. Wide ranging... More

First went last summer & it was excellent. Always cautious about going back in case the place had gone down. No worries here! Were politely cautioned before we sat down that the table was needed in an hour & a half. No problem. Service was spot on, & the food, very reasonably priced, was as good as the last visit.... More

Returned here for a second time as we knew the food was so good. Great selection of pastas on the menu, and the lasagne in particular was lovely. The place itself is very small but the food speaks for itself, we'll be back if we're ever in Galway again for sure!

The restaurant is so cute and the waitress was so welcoming and friendly. We both got garlic bread to start, it arrived super quick and it was to die for!! I had ravioli and my... More

We were staying in Galway over the Christmas period as we had done 2 years previously. We visited Venice then and hoped that the restaurant was still open - it was! It is only tiny so either get there early or book. We arrived just after 7 and all tables were taken by 7.45. We didn't have starters as we... More

Just had a wonderful meal in this little gem of a restaurant. We found Venice by chance and were thoroughly satisfied. All the courses were delicious but particularity the pasta special in a bisque sauce and reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.
