We dropped in to Pavarotti's Pizza n Pasta Athlone on Easter Sunday. Parked for free (free on Sundays) just across the road and right next to Athlone castle and the Viking boat trips. We were seated very quickly by our lovely young welcoming waitress who offered us a cozy table for two right by the window. The menu boasts a healthy combination of pizza, pasta, steak and fish dishes amongst a variety of sides, desserts and drinks. My eye caught the chicken pasta (a choice of either penne, spaghetti or tagliatelli) in creamy tomato while my wife opted for the Pavarotti meat balls in a deep rich tomato sauce. We added a shared side of potatoes gratin. Healthy sized portions of each arrived along with parmesan and black pepper. It was obvious the chef knows his business, beautifully put together dishes, delicious and tasty. If I were to add any criticism at all it would be that each of the dishes needed a little more seasoning in the cooking as it is not quite the same to add this later ... this the smallest of criticisms. We cleared our plates and finished with a gorgeous cappucino. Now here's the thing, all the pasta and pizza dishes were priced at only 10 euro ... we were just recently in Rome and would have paid twice this for the same dish barely of the same quality. A big thank you to our waitress again who guided us to some of the local places of interest before we left.
