My niece and I visited Killarney. On our first night in town we asked the hotel for a restaurant recommendation. The front desk receptionist told us about Little Italy. What a delightful surprise! The food was fresh and delicious. The staff was very friendly and...helpful. We had such a wonderful experience that we went back the next two nights. One night we even ran into the hotel receptionist that had initially referred us! We loved that there was both indoor and outdoor seating. We would highly recommend this restaurant.More

Excellent service. Seated immediately without reservation. Staff were extremely helpful and polite. There is both indoor and outdoor seating available, with a basket of blankets for those seated outdoors. A very nice touch. Food is delicious and very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.

Everytime my partner and I visit Killarney we come here for dinner and have never been disappointed . The food has been outstanding every time without fail and the waiting staff have always been so polite and went above and beyond to ensure we were...enjoying our meal . A woman served me last time offered me a blanket as it was chilly and we were sited outside, a lovely gesture. Would highly recommend to anyoneMore

Recently paid a visit to this restaurant where all our party ordered pizza & wine. Food was delicious however the staff member that served us was quiet rude. I felt the dining experience was rushed and as a result of both of these reasons I...wouldn’t dine here again and feel much better service can be got in Killarney.More

My husband had just gotten to Killarney and was walking around to find a place to eat. We stumbled upon an alley and saw restaurants so decided to walk down to check them out. We were surprised at Little Italy and the owner and staff....They were so friendly and Accommodating with us. The waitress was friendly and gave great suggestions for dinner. The owner Dion was very friendly and came by our table and talked with us for a very long time. Usually the owners of an establishment will come to your table to check how the meal was but they really don’t stay and chat. Dion was authentic and very nice. We ordered the #17 pizza (meat) and it was delicious. The sauce had an excellent flavor. I would recommend this place to anyone that visits Killarney in the future.More

What a treat. After a week of Pubs and Sea Food restaurants, our Italian meal was a welcome respite. Every bite we had was enjoyable. The Bruschetta was a treat as was our main course pasta dishes. The service was delightful and was provided by...the owners daughter. Mom and Dad can be proud of this lovely young lady. The owner on premise, (Mom) was extremely gracious and a pleasure to speak with. Thanks for the chat and great food.More

The positives of this restaurant is the food we had was gorgeous however the attitude of the girl who served us would stop me from ever returning. I was still eating from my sides when she came over & removed my plate while it was...very obvious that all of us at the table were still eating. This is a common sense rule of thumb in the food & beverage industry you do not clear items until all diners have finished. When she came back to clear the rest of the plates she asked us did we want anything else to which we replied no. I was then asked if I wanted the bill & before I know it she is at my side with her card terminal shoved in my face & which you have to select a tip option before you can pay which I found so rude ( we are not in America yet I felt I was back there such was the attitude) This restaurant advertises that it serves until 10pm but I feel If the staff want to close up earlier then this should be outlined at the onset. We had to gulp down our drinks & leave & once I got to the front door I could see why the rush was it was so the staff can sit down & eat there meal. I don’t begrudge them this but do you need to rush diners out in order to do so?? If you plan on making a night out of your meal & relax with a glass of wine after your meal then this is not the place to so many other options in killarney. This felt like a takeaway not a night out dining experience which is such a pity as like I said the food is gorgeous.More

As an Italian I went here to try the food and see if it can actually be defined as "Italian". Absolutely disappointed. The staff is totally unpolite, she got the wrong order and she even pretended to be right. The prices are high and the...food quality is amazingly bad. Never again in my lifeMore
