Visited several times for breakfast never yet for lunch or dinner. Scrambled eggs are lovely as are the fried and poached. Frittata also looks great (yet to try - not sure about salad for breakfast). Bacon / pancetta is normal bacon but the herby meaty Italian sausage is lovely. The coffee is to die for. Always busy with a great... More

Limerick of a Sunday is normally very quiet and places to have a cup of tea/coffee are few and far between. However, on Little Catherine Street, there's an Italian Restaurant called Olio & Farina. The ladies on duty were very attentive and polite and the weather was good enough to be able to sit outside and watch the world go... More

Regularly have coffee here and it is consistently good with great service. Also does very good lunches. You can dine inside or outside under the canopy. Would recommend.

I was curious when I read a review by Eamonn G. Apparently he's a "coffee snob". I'd love to know what qualifies you to be a coffee snob. Are you a trained barista? Have you ever used a traditional coffee machine? Anyway, I digress. I paid my first visit to O&F today and I was more than pleasantly surprised. The... More

This is a great little Italian Cafe in the heart of Limerick city, a rarity of good coffee and great service in Ireland. Offers take away or sit in, also does some quite nice looking food.

I must highly recommend this restaurant/tapas bar. Have had many a snack and coffee with my friends here...And last night decided to have an evening treat. And what a treat!! We were presented with a huge plate of mixed Italian meats, cheeses, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, salads and a selection of three wonderful dressings...and of course the glass of vino!!! It... More
