Nice atmosphere in the restaurant and the service was friendly and efficient. The food was great - Especially the fresh pasta! Generous portions - We had to ask for doggy bags!

Visited here on Wednesday night and although quiet, it still created a nice relaxing atmosphere to enjoy some excellent food which was prepared to a high standard and all reasonably priced. The sauces which accompanied our dishes were extremely tasty and bursting with flavour. The...service from the young lady looking after us was attentive and thoughtful so thank you. We did book beforehand as although quiet, downstairs is quite small with only a few tables. This restaurant is located in the centre of Salthill and within walking distance of the major hotels. Would definitely return if back in the vicinity.More

I think it is a great mark of a restuarant if they handle a complaint well. I was not happy with my main course and the waitress listened attentively and brought me an alternative dish of her choosing - which was excellent. Still think the...dishes need a bit more oomph of flavour - but now that I know they are open to suggestion - I may go back again. Service was excellent.More

It is with a heavy heart I write this review. The front of house staff were fantastic but were let down by the quality of the food. I had the seafood pasta with chilli and tomato sauce. There was no chilli heat in the dish...and only two pieces of chilli in the entire dish. I asked my partner to taste one chilli, and she agreed there was no heat whatsoever. The fish was cooked well but just no flavour of tomato or chilli. I finished the meal just to be polite as I don’t like to cause a scene. Maybe it was just an off night.More

We had mussels and a Hawaiian pizza. The mussels were fine. Small by US standards, but perhaps this is normal here. I would have used more salt. The pizza was New York style; around 13" with a thin crust. The crust was delicate with no...charring. Good flavor. Based on my own experience making pizza, I believe they made the dough on the premises. I had no complaints about the pizza. I am a pizza snob, and I thought it was excellent. My wife wanted more toppings. They don't sprinkle with oregano. The Coke I ordered was a realistic size, not like the Barbie Cokes they sell in Dublin for ridiculous prices. They were very kind about seating us without a reservation. I would definitely go back. It would be nice to try the pasta.More

Dinner here recently. I had a goats cheese and pesto pizza for starters. Huge and tasty. My companion had garlic mushrooms which were devoured! I had a fabulous seafood spaghetti dish for mains and my companion had the sea bass. We finished off with tiramisu...and Italian apple pie. Lovely food. Excellent service. Huge portions.More

Outstanding Authentic Italian cuisine.. Food was exceptional; service outstanding & excellent value for money. Highly recommended if in Salthill/Galway area (followed by a few pints in O’Connors pub just a few yards up the road)….

I dined at La Collinav restaurant this evening with my husband. This restaurant was on a par with restaurants we have eaten in throughout Italy. My crespelle starter was delicious, as was my mains - Fettuccine Gamberi. Our server Elisa was both pleasant and informative....We were impressed with their covid procedures and felt very safe. . We will certainly return on our next visit to Salthill and would recommend this authentic restaurant without hesitation.More

We were lucky to get a reservation at this lovely restaurant tonight by taking an early sitting. As soon as we arrived we could see it would live up to its excellent reputation with the staff so friendly. Our food was absolutely delicious and authentic...Italian. The atmosphere was great and everything felt well looked after in terms of covid precautions too. Highly recommend the bruschetta and green wine! Tiramisu pretty awesome tooMore

This place is super low key. As good as everything was, Service was a little slow as is the usual tempo for Irish folks. I suggest waiting until you get there.
