Dined here with a friend recently before a night out. Shared a delicious pizza with a side of potatoes. Great coffee too. Really great location in centre of Galway.

My niece and I were searching Galway for an open restaurant (at 4pm) on a cold winter's Friday afternoon when we happened upon this surprise. We were drawn in by the posted menu outside and the welcoming faces of the staff, poised at attention. We were delighted with the menu choices and decided on the goat cheese (warm) and beet... More

Went there for lunch and had a pizza. The restaurant was empty and the waiting staff at the back and therefore not hearing when we needed their attention to order other stuff. The pizza was ok, had better but did the job.

We were wandering the streets looking at menus when the venison ragu caught my eye from their menu. I wish it didn't, it was tasteless. I mean actually tasteless. The red wine venison ragu which you would expect to be a big bold dish tasted of nothing. When I said I was disappointed I got told 'Oh it's one of... More

Fiancée and I split a margharita pizza and the pumpkin ravioli. Both were delicious. Service was great, prices were reasonable, and the restaurant was located on Quay Street in the middle of the action in Galway. Definitely a place I'd revisit in Galway.

As an Italian I always distrust Italian restaurants abroad, however Magnetti has been a delightful surprise. Being in Galway for business, I and my colleagues decided to give Magnetti a shot. And we went back 3 there more times during our 2-week stay! Pizza is delicious. Nice dough, quality ingredients, and most importantly not stodgy. You can eat it late... More

Two of us ate before a rugby match. The pizzas were thin and well cooked and presented. Unfortunately the lasagne had sold out, which at 13.30 seemed a bit strange. Staff were friendly and the restaurant is modern and light. Well worth a visit for a quick Italian
