We visited this restaurant on Sunday about 2.30 pm for lunch on our way to Cork. It was an excellent choice. We had three of the Italian dishes on the menu. The food was plentiful, tasty and well presented.Service was prompt and efficient. The staff were pleasant and correct. There was good social distancing between the tables and the staff wore masks/visors. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

I dined at this restaurant last weekend and had an amazing experience! I was with my boyfriend and his family celebrating his birthday. The place was packed and we got to wait in the lovely bar area with comfy chairs while the waitress cleared a table for us. Our waitress was lovely and was smiling and chatting with us despite how busy the restaurant was. I had soup for a starter, a gorgeous vegetable soup (more bread was needed is all I’ll say though) and steak for my main course. The steak was cooked exactly to my liking, and the flavour was incredible. I felt it was definitely worth the price. The wine was great too. Thank you to Laura our waitress for her great work and making sure we were well looked after.

I had the spinach gnocchi with eggplant, and my spouse had seafood pasta. Very good! We ordered a bottle of Chianti, and it was delicious.

Had a meal here with my better half a while back and while the food was good the service and management were sadly lacking, my partner had a problem with her meal and asked to see the manager, the waitress went away and never returned so i asked another who rudely replied that she did not serve the table and had nothing to do with her. We paid our bill "no tip" and left. nice place but do not have the attitude to stay afloat.
