Very authentic and very reasonable in price and always busy with a great atmosphere. Fantastic sharing board is probably their best option on the menu.

Always go here when my friend comes back to limerick, they do a lovely lunch. She loves the minestrone soup and sandwich combo, and I always get one of the pastas. Also the Caesar salad is so good.

Description
Food in an Italian Restaurant starts with family and ours is no exception. With over 26 successful years as a brother and sister run business, we have the pleasure of working with family everyday. From behind the scenes to front of house family is involved in every aspect of our business. With dishes made to our own Family recipes, we believe simplicity allows quality ingredients to speak for themselves. We attribute the strength of our ‘Bella Italia’ recipe to unfailing family and loyal customer support over the years.
