Centrally located in Kilkenny Little Italy is easy to find. It's cute look from the exterior drew us in with pretty candles adorning the window. Entering the restaurant was pretty cold inside and seated by the window there was a cold breeze blowing under the entrance door. The starters we ordered were disappointing. The spicy chicken wings (the three we... More

Went for the early bird, very reasonable and filling. Good, tasty selection. Good and fast service. They're able to accommodate large groups, and everyone was satisfied. I would recommend going and would definitely go again.

Stumbled on this restaurant by accident; it was beautifully lit up for Valentines week (we were there with the kids!!!). It was early so the kids were very welcome. During the week, the early bird is available up to 9 or 10pm. Excellent value in a set menu (which still had plenty choice) - 3 courses plus bottle of house... More

I didn't have any expectations, I hadn't read a review but it was near where we were going for a drink after so ti was convenient. Our meal was excellent. Nice big portions, friendly staff and not overly expensive. It was busy throughout the... More

Had dinner here last month and it was really nice. The only down side was the place was full and there was only one waitress on her own. She could have done with more help. Not her fault she was doing her best. Even the chef was dropping food to tables to help her out.
