Was told about this place by a taxi driver. Wasn't disappointed with it. Went there Saturday lunch time and had a couple of beers and a lovely freshly baked 14" pizza. There is usually some entertainment on in the evenings( I think). It has got...More

Great beers, delicious pizza, what more do you need? Overall a good meal. One bartender did roll his eyes when I asked for a water for a friend who doesn't drink, and filled a tiny glass halfway full, but otherwise it was enjoyable and tasty.

We enjoyed a real Italian-made pizza (per my Italian Friend) and good Irish craft beer (pint cost €5.20)! Since I don’t drink beer, I had the mango and raspberry cider (1/2 liter cost €6.50). It went very well with the pizza, too! Our four cheese...More

As far as I know, it's possible to call them to reserve a table. I remember going with Trend Micro, and we had our 2 tables reserved, but it wasn't a Saturday, so I'm not sure.
