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.

I had lunch with my friends in this restaurant. The staff was so nice and helpful. I ordered a Silician pizza, it was big enough and good. For dessert I ordered tiramisu and it was not so good, it tasted not like the real tiramisu, it is the only think that I didn't enjoy.

Walked in looking for a table for 6 on a Wednesday at 7:30pm when other restaurants in Bantry were closed. Restaurant was full, we were put on a waiting list with possible waiting time of 45 minutes but were seated within 40 minutes. The staff even though they were extremely busy were friendly and attentive. A wide range of meals... More

It was a Good Friday and everything was closed. We took in to have a bite. Well, the place is ok but I can't say "wow". My husband ate pizza and I took a salad. Personal was absolutely friendly. Food was ok.

Walked in without an appointment and three very hungry children. We were offered a table for an hour which was perfect. Our order was taken quickly and the waiting staff couldn't have been more helpful with drink changes and special requests. The food was fresh but quick to the table and it even though we all opted for basic dishes,... More

We had a meal with friends here and it was lovely. It is a bit more expensive than some other restaurants. There could be a little more choice on the menu for plain food I.e a roast chicken/port etc and perhaps more fish choice as being on the bay you'd hope to have more fresh fish on the menu. Otherwise... More
