Spent a delightful summer evening at this charming restaurant in Youghal. Great selection of food all reasonably priced. Would highly recommend the pizza- all made from fresh ingredients of course. The apple cake was also delicious. Of course, what makes this restaurant truly unique is its wonderful character. One genuinely feels like they have been transported to Sicily. The music, the ambiance, the decoration all create a magical feast for the senses. It is easy to forget that one is still in Youghal. The staff were immensely welcoming and didn't mind serving us even though it was well past 9:30. They went out of their way to accommodate us. Will definitely return to this charming place

Ate here with a friend last night. Absolutely fantastic. Hospitality was top class. Had vegetable soup for starter followed by a delicious tropical pizza. Pizza was made from scratch as well. The waitress who served us was very kind and not to mention beautiful :) full marks for decor too. Truly a recommended spot for good eating in Youghal.

Decided on a take away and the staff at carleton village recommended this and it was well worth it. Got pizza which was one of the nicest I ever had and fish and chips which would have fed 3 people. Very generous portions and great value for money.

This place has fantastic food with a fantastic boss luigi. My girlfriend had the stuff squid special and I had the silcilian fish stew which are both accompanied by rustic potatoes and side salad. Our dishes are absolutely delicious. You can really taste the authentic flavour of sicily italy. The boss luigi is one of the nicest guy I ever met. Thanks luigi for a beautiful meal and also the chocolate cake. I will definitely be back.

I won't write "best chowder ever" because I look forward to returning for a topper. The huge bowl of superb broth, brimming with mussels and sand clams, potatoes and fish, was accompanied by a stack of toasted brown bread. The friendly server was also the cook, cashier, and music director, acquainting the few of us dining with the songs of a brilliant guitarist whose work he enjoys and champions.
