Visited recently with a friend for dinner and would highly recommend. We were greeted on arrival by friendly staff and seated promptly. Unfortunately we were not entirely happy with our table and asked if it was possible to move. Within 3 minutes we were sitting at another table which we were much happier with and the staff moved our drinks... More

Five of us stopped in for dinner. We were staying downtown and this was an easy walk - but also off the main drag. It has a cozy semi-formal atmosphere. The food was quite good but the service can be slow. I interpret it as relaxed - they were not pushing us or rushing us. But if you need to... More

Myself and 6 of my friends booked this lovely restaurant on our recent trip to Athlone. The food is very reasonably priced and the portions are very generous. All 7 of us enjoyed our meals and the BYOB makes it a winner in my book, makes such a difference to the overall cost of a night out.

This place came highly recommended, but my experience fell way short of the rave reviews. We were largely ignored, received no check in after the meals were served, and felt stranded when we wanted to leave. However, the lasanga al forno was the best I have ever had. With that being said, I would only go back to get the... More

Food was good and filling.Unlike most other Athlone restaurants, sitting place was better organized .Ample space to sit . Menu has few different and decent options. Tomato taste was stronger in couple of our dishes.One can check while ordering. Ample car park space near by. Service was good.

Had a lovely Itlanian meal. Staff very pleasant asked if we could try both house white wines to see which we preferred no problem. Pizzas were delicious as was the wine. The tomato pasta had loads of fresh cherry tomatoes in it with chunks of chicken and the surprise of the dish was the dough crust on top so thin... More

A group of old friends brought me to this restaurant. The food was lovely, the staff were great. The prices were very reasonable and no one left hungry, as the the portions were big.
