They were very busy on this Friday night but we were able to get the last table. We each had a pasta main course which was very good and plenty to eat. The ice cream dessert was simple but delicious. Very good value for the meal and wine.

Fantastic restaurant, excellent staff, very nice menu choice. I had bruschetta to start and my wife and I then had pizza for main - my wife had gluten free pizza and for her it was a real treat as it is hard to get good homemade gluten free pizza base! Will definitely be back!

Best Italian resturant in kilkenny by far! Highly recommended! Friendly staff and mouth watering early bird menu. Less than €20 for 2 courses. I had the wings to start and pizza for mains. Looking forward to returning to try the rest if the menu.
