We went on a Friday night and the place was very busy - however it seemed that priority was being given to the take away trade and we sat at the table like lemons for ages with just a glass of water - after the third time of asking we managed to get some wine but the food still seemed... More

We were staying in A guest house in Ballylicky. Went on line to book for dinner, filled in the booking details. The response advised we would get a confirmation - we didn't.

We stopped in for a dessert and found that they have a selection of some very innovative sweets. In addition to the more traditional selections, they have very creatively made delicious fruit, crumbles, and sauces into quite a tasty treat. We did not have a pizza, but from what we saw coming out, they looked very good. Service was outstanding.

We arrived after a speculative phone call to be warmly welcomed on a busy Saturday night. We both had a fish dish which was good and plentiful. We were looked after during our stay by a great waitress who was attentive but not pushy. Highly recommended especially if looking for food In a hurry

I really enjoy all of their food. You can go in for a pizza (exceptional) or a complete gourmet meal.. There service is friendly and service is quick.

A lovely bustling restaurant. Very attentive staff. The pizza is delicious. My son had the spaghetti bolognaise and while it pains me to say this...he said it was better than mine! The only strange thing to me was that this is an Italian restaurant and there is no Italian wine on the wine list. Despite that I would return.
