Given the rather good reviews it is a while we wanted to try L’Arco. We were very disappointed. Prices are reasonable. Venue is rather large and dark. So nothing special about the venue. Lots of pizza and pasta to choose from. I wouldn’t rate there...More

Quite simple really, if you want the best food and service in the area, this is the place to eat. Absolutely beautiful food, service, wine and ambience. Very reasonable prices for high quality food and drinks. Loved it, highly recommended

Very good evening meal. Lovely inside. Plenty of choice for your meal. Would certainly go again. Don’t miss out.

After a week of pub food, we welcomed a change after a long day touring The Burren. Not a fan of their red sauce, but the pizza was good.

After a week and a half in Ireland with some great Irish pub food, my sister and I were ready for some pizza. We searched and found L’Arco and absolutely loved it. The prices were reasonable, the service was good, and the food was great.

What has happened to L'arco? . This place used to have a fantastic Italian chef serving delicious food, great crispy authentic Pizzas and excellent Lasagna and Melanzane. Now the food is terrible, flabby pizzas, reheated half warm lasagne with acres of stringy cheese. A truly...More
