Don't fret - this quirky reliable bistro is not closing, it's just moving further up the same Abbeygate street to a bigger place nearer the main Shop street. Great pasta at affordable prices

I visited for dinner on Friday night when I was visiting Galway. I was pleasantly surprised, this was the best Italian restaurant I've been in a long time. I had minestrone and spaghetti bolognese and they were both great. Waiters were very kind too.

Really good Italian food. Nothing bad to say at all. The bolognese was delicious, great garlic pizza bread and the lemon merengue was fantastic.

This restaurant is small - it only seats around 22 to 24 people. We had a reservation and without it, we wouldn't have got a seat. Food was really excellent and portions were really good. The only negative was that service was quite slow and there was a wait of over 45 minutes between our starter and main course.

Gorgeous food that's good value. The children's menu is excellent. It was busy and there isn't much seating so if you could book in advance, you should.
