What a little gem of an Italian right on the doorstep. We ordered for collection the other night. Food was exceptional. Pizza was real authentic Italian style with super fresh ingredients. Starters of bruscetta and calamari were wonderful. Along with some real chips. It was...also great value. I would highly recommend.More

We had the best evening, I ordered the steak and I was SCREAMING crying cause it was so good, ate half the other halfs spag bol as he doesnt have a big appetite and it was absolutely DELIGHTFUL. Great COVID procedure and they are surely...doing their part to stop lockdown 3 but we all know it's coming regardless..... Carina was an absolute bae, obviously very experienced in the industry, seemed as though she was the only one serving that evening but she had it all under control. What a delightful lady. The wine was also amazing, fell up the road after skulling a bottle of merlot with my steak, all in all, great success. 10 out 10, would frequent again. On the Luas now on my way to work and it is rainingMore

Four family members dined here with a last-minute telephone dinner booking. Table beside the faux fire which was cosy enough. Attentive and efficient service, Shared starters of prawns and breads. Pasta and fish dishes freshly cooked for mains. Nice bottle of Montepulciano at €32. Well...worth a visit.More

I was staying nearby at the Citywest Hotel and fancied some Italian food so this place was ideal as it was only a short walk away. The restaurant was very clean. Its a small restaurant, but had nice decor. Service was very friendly and the...food came out quite quickly, as it wasn't too busy with clientele. I chose prawns in a spicy tomato sauce to start which was delicious. I had pizza with chicken, mozzarella and sweetcorn for main. I washed it all down with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and sparkling water. I couldn't fault it. Very good food and honestly priced. If I were to visit this area again, I would definitely return for seconds!More
