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.

Food was really good, proper Italian cuisine. The tiramisu was the best I’ve ever had. All staff were friendly and accommodating but a particular mention to Christina who was so friendly and welcoming. Full marks all round

We visited this eatery on TA review recommendation. Our waitress was unfriendly and indifferent, but efficient. The menu is huge, with lovely sounding dishes in every section. I opted for meat pizza. It arrived quickly, filled the plate, had loads of tasty toppings and was...a nice thin crust. It took all my powers of concentration to eat the thing, but I’m glad I managed it. Food prices are very reasonable for the quantity/quality of food provided. Drink prices, especially sodas are extortionate. Recommended.More

We visited the restaurant at 1pm. We were in a rush to bring my son to a party so I didnt look at the prices. We ordered lasagne, 2 pizzas&chips, fish and chips, tea and 2 cokes. It came to 90e!! It was nearly 19e...for a lasagne that didn't even come with a side. Fish and chips 20e!!! They charged us 2e for miwadi. My kids wouldn't eT the pizza so I had to get it for take away. Way too much cheese and pepperoni it was sickening. Nearly 5e for a portion of chips. My husband nearly died when he saw the bill. This is extortionate pricing for lunch time. The food was only ok. We won't be visiting again. Its a shame they don't cater for families. The cost of living is rapidly increasing and we could have bought a weekly shop for this. Extremely disappointedMore

A lukewarm reception when we arrived set the tone for what was a disappointing experience. The food is completely overpriced for what it is. Our burgers came with a salad (basically a plate of lettuce with a couple of small pieces of tomato and cucumber...- think Ireland circa 1986) Chips were extra although they were pretty tasty. Chips should not however ever be the highlight of a meal that cost €55 for two burgers and a child's portion of pasta. There were also mix ups with our order, a second portion of chips that we did not order and yet were charged for, 'crispy' bacon on a burger that was in reality rubbery, fatty and unpleasant and when we were asked if everything was OK by a waitress (one of 3 or 4 that had dealt with us - all a bit disinterestedly) and we responded that it was nly OK and mentioned the bacon being undercooked she simply went 'uh' and walked away. The smallest things could have made this a totally different review - listen to your customers when they are ordering and friendly service goes a long way to a customer being more forgiving when other things don't go well.More

Went here for a meal with friends. While service was very good, & food was quite good, We found it to be completely overpriced. €8.50 for a small bowl of olives was absolutely ridiculous, pasta dishes for €20+ with even a supplement of €2 for...gluten free pasta!?! It cost far too much for a quick bite to eat midweek.. I won’t be returning nor recommending.More

We ate in this restaurant last night . It was a last minute thing as we were going to a concert . We had no reservation but felt lucky to get a table at 5.45 to be finished by 7 . Firstly the girls that...looked after us were lovely. But that’s where it ends . I had mozzarella salad for starter at 13.90 . It was very small and bland . All the pasta dishes were at least 19/20 euro . I had a tomato chicken dish which was ok but honestly warm at best and sometimes cold . It was not heated through! Or possibly microwaved ! Our table was in the middle of the floor which I suppose I have to understand as last minute but maybe the restaurant should find another place for the plastic bin and black sack that was beside us . Not a great experience overall . Will not return.More

First impressions count the most so didn't get the best start when the young gentleman who showed us to our table seemed a bit indifferent and not particularly welcoming. The female staff were all lovely, helpful and efficient. Allergy menu has not been thought through...at all. If you have an egg allergy, apparently every single pizza may have egg even though we checked with the chef twice and were told that the dough definitely doesn't have egg in it because its just flour and water. The disclaimer was that they can't guarantee that it wouldn't have traces of egg. If that's the case then every single allergy food listed could be in every dish which defeats the entire point of an allergy menu - it should only list allergens that have been used to make the dish. Every allergy sufferer will be aware of the risk of contamination. So this was a faff at the start of the visit and stressed my daughter out. Pizzas were decent, generous toppings, almost too much on my husbands which he ended up eating with a knife and fork because there was so much chicken on it and the base had gone soggy. My pasta was tasty but had been served in a cold bowl so was tepid after about 5 minutes and I was so hungry I couldn't be bothered asking for it to be reheated. No wine list, drinks menu with no mention of wine. Having read lots of positive reviews about this place I left feeling a bit disappointed because the things letting it down could easily be fixed. Perhaps different staff on because it was Easter Sunday. Really wanted to rate it 4 star because the female waitresses were lovely but 3 stars because of the aforementioned issues.More

It had more of a cafe feeling than it did when situated next door. We were given a table for two with a view of the front of house greeting customers. There was a brush and pan behind us which when needed the waiter had...to squeeze past to get too. Myself and my wife ordered carbonara which was fine although the sauce was slightly split, a bottle of wine (Their Cheapest - Just under 30 Euro ) 1 desert, 2 coffee, 3 spirts which came to an unbelievable just shy of 100 Euro. The restaurant has gone from very good (See previous review) to something that falls far short on top of which the prices have soared.More

The service was excellent and many thanks to all the staff who were so professional and friendly when they were all under extreme pressure ....The food and drinks were excellent and we all enjoyed our food which was a mixture of pizzas and pasta dishes. Highly recommend we love to eat here when we visit Sligo there is a lovely atmosphere and we love the decor and location and of course the food and outstanding staff.More
