This is a new restaurant. Having noticed it on Tripadvisor we decided we would give it a try. It is just off the main clonakilty road at Shannonvale. Not knowing what to expect, on arrival, from the outside it looked cosy and pretty impressive. A new extension , behind the pub, it appears a lot oft thought went into the planning. Warmly greeted by the italian manager, we were looking forward to the menu.
Very Italian, we took our time looking over it. I choose Parma ham with melon. The presentation was quiet spectacular, and it was absolutely delicious. All the ingredients were extremely fresh, and it was obvious it was prepared and brought straight to the table. For my main meal I had Lamb, done to near perfection, with a great selection of vegetables. And the desert looked too good to eat. A coffee pudding. It was just delicious and different.
It was quiet, but that is to be expected for a new restaurant in an area they choose. We are quiet critical, but we so enjoyed that we decided from an overall point of view, quality, presentation,and value it deserves 10 out of 10.
In these trying times, and at this time of year, with the tourist season just over, if nearby, or want a change from the usual restaurants, try here, and give this new business a little support. You will not be disappointed. It is a really good Italian. More than up there with the best of them.
I wish them good luck and to be successful, and will definitely be going there again. Well done.

The food was great, simple tasty and well presented. The staff were friendly and helpful. It's great to see Italian staff in the restaurant as you know the food is going to be authentic Italian food. We had lasagne and fillet steak. The fillet steak was fab the only complaint was that the portion was quite big!!! Will definitely be back
