This restaurant is small - it only seats around 22 to 24 people. We had a reservation and without it, we wouldn't have got a seat. Food was really excellent and portions were really good. The only negative was that service was quite slow and there was a wait of over 45 minutes between our starter and main course.

Gorgeous food that's good value. The children's menu is excellent. It was busy and there isn't much seating so if you could book in advance, you should.

We have traveled across a large part of this amazing planet and as a rule we avoid eating in the same venue more than once in a single visit. On our first night in Galway we lucked into Venice and it shall forever be the best Italian eatery outside of Italy! It was so good we ate there 4 times... More

Amongst best Italian food in Galway. Not fancy but warm and welcoming. Good kids menu too (very small restaurant though so probably not suitable for buggies). Reasonably priced. Highly recommend it. Has take away menu.

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
