Excellent value, great food. Not very good interiors but comfortable enough, service was a bit rude.

“Very good food, a little overpriced.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2011

We found starters to be on the small side, main courses were very good. This restaurant has no early bird offers on a Sunday night. Desserts not great. We found a better value Italian in Athlone. We found the service quite rushed.

“Probably the best Italian in Athlone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2011

The best Italian to be had in Athlone. The portions are a bit small but the care the chefs bring to their food is wonderful. The decor isn't really anything to speak of, but the staff are friendly and this place can get full in the evenings.
