Visiting family close to Kilkenny, they booked us in to their favourite restaurant. Wow - the decor is stunning!! We booked for the early bird, and the food is fabulous. Good service.

Tonight we booked a table at Rinuccini’s for the early dinner. You are given a choice of two or three courses. We had a starter and a main and were very happy with both of the. The service was quite good and the ambiance was extraordinary.

We stopped in for lunch on a Monday without a reservation and were greeted with smiles and shown to a quiet table for two. Broad menu, decent wine list. The maitre took our order promptly. I let him choose the wine and pasta, both of which turned out nice, a solid merlot that paired well, good value for the money. The liver pate and linguine were served promptly, both were excellent light lunch tastings. Prompt service, good Italian, quiet convenient location, nice people, a terrific lunchtime choice we’d unhesitatingly revisit. Be sure to count their awards displayed at the entrance.

After 2 weeks of travelling through Ireland and enjoying fish and seafood, we were ready for a change and Rinuccini fit the bill. It also helped that it was just a 5 minute walk from our hotel! It is a lovely, Italian restaurant - very elegant and low key, but not at all stuffy. The food and the service were excellent. I enjoyed the delicious chicken liver pate and the rigatoni with egg plant - cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

This was truly a wonderful meal from start to finish. The starters of pate and anti pasta meats were first rate. The pasta dishes were authentic and so tasty we did not save room for dessert which was a shame since they looked terrific. We will remember this meal for some time, a terrific value too.
