To be honest, I've eaten pastas like this only in Italy. Btw, they are home made :) You can also try the duck pate. To die for 🤤🤤🤤 banana bread with caramel was to sweet for me, but my colleagues are in love

This is a lovely little restaurant which was very busy when we visited. We enjoyed a tosted pennini which was served with salad and crisps and was reasonable priced. A little gem.

Hi Eveleen, Many thanks for the feedback but I think you may have us mixed up with another Bon Appeit that I believe is situated down the south of Ireland. Glad you enjoyed it all the same!
