We've been many times to Little Italy now! They have a great selection of starters and even more of mains. Since I tried the Bruschetta one night, I always have to get it now! Great staff too.

Two friends and I spent a few days in Kilkenny. We did not have dinner at Little Italy the last night or we would have gone every night! The food and service was excellent. The hostess very accommodating. The food was delicious. I had chicken in the best cream sauce. And, the tiramisu was grand! The early bird price, 18e... More

We went there with my boyfriend on a Sunday night and were very happy to come across this place! Staff was nice and available. Decoration, atmosphere and music set up a calming romantic scene. We had delicious goat crostini as a starter, then I had pasta with gambas and my boyfriend had the tagliatelle carbonara. The dishes were really tasty... More

We ate in this gem of a restaurant but we felt guilty as the waitress was run off her feet she was excellent but had no help the owners need to take a long hard look at themselves it's bordering on slavery. As my wife used to work as a waitress she was upset by the treatment given to this... More
