Staff sneery when asked about vegan options. Long wait for food with no explanation or apology. Birthday cake was never brought out, we had to ask for it back when we were leaving. Lots of good restaurants in Maynooth, including Italian and vegan - go...there instead.More

Food was delicious ,especially the ribs starter, which was almost a meal in itself. Good service topped off a very pleasant evening. Highly recommend.

Myself and my husband ate here on a Saturday night.. The restaurant was very busy, but we had booked a table in advance. Lots of people there and a great buzz about the place. We had a nice table beside the window. We ordered garlic...bread and spicy chicken wings to start. The portions were huge much to my other half's delight. We had the sirloin steak and pasta primavera for mains. Himself said the steak was nice though he has had better. It came with a side salad and rosemary potatoes and pepper sauce. I had the pasta and it was gorgeous, very fresh and tasty. We ordered wine and dessert.. A fruit of the forest cheesecake.. This was massive! They could easily cut it into 2 portions.. Very nice though and I forced myself to finish it off 😁 staff were friendly but very busy. They certainly were kept going all evening. We will be back with the kids for pizza soon.More

Alvitos is by far the best restaurant in leixlip, we love this restaurant & visit regularly. The food is always amazing, the pasta, burger, steak all delicious, we must have tried nearly everything on the menu at this stage & love it, I especially enjoyed...the sea bass they had on their specials menu last night. The staff are always friendly & very attentive, can’t say enough about them especially Aurelia who is always so nice & welcoming to us which is why we always love visiting Alvitos & will continue to do so.Fab restaurant all round!!!More

Always excellent, authentic Italian, start with spare ribs (can be shared between 2), spaghetti gambas particularly recommended, Al Vitos's de luxe burger for something more conventional, good affordable wine, lovely staff.

I noticed a lot of herbs are used in the dishes here, which I don’t like and garlic and peppers repeat on me. The duck was tasteless and I thought I was getting potatoes with it, but they were more like chips. Some of the...vegetables were peppers which I could not eat and there was lettuce on the plate also. The coffee was undrinkable as it was too strong. Overall I was very disappointed and that was my 4th time there and we will not be back. I did complain but I was ignored.More

Great place to meet friends for a short or long walk. You can chat as you walk, a fab way of catching up with all the news and of course keeping fit. You can walk here all year round and in all weathers if you...wish Barn is so loved by families in Leixlip. You can bring a picnic in summer. You can also walk yours dogsMore
