The most unassuming of exteriors hides one of Ireland's most authentic, award-winning Italian eateries. Owners Laura and Marco Roccasalvo (he's also the chef) and their Italian staff give this little place a warm, informal vibe. The old posters, fishing nets, and wine bottles on display might hint of tourist trap, but this chilled-out spot is introducing locals to the delights of hearty, no-frills Italian cuisine. The pizza and pasta specials are always worth checking
out, as are such fine mains as the lamb cutlets wrapped in pancetta with olives, white wine and herbs. The wine list is large, and the staff loves to help you match your vino to your food. They also have a lovely little deli nearby.
