No hesitation in putting 5 stars for Olio and Farina. Great atmosphere, really nice cosy place. Old fashioned, top class and fuss free service. Fabulous quesadilla and carbonara. Great coffee and home made desserts. Will definitely be back.

Excellent service, my waiter was a gentleman. Delicious food, the meat and cheese platter was beautiful. Reasonably priced, full cheese and meat platter and 4 glasses of wine for just over 40 euro. A jewel in the crown of Limerick that everybody should visit regularly.
