Like some of the other reviews, we were pleasantly surprised when we entered. Open fire greeted us and a very friendly atmosphere. It was a quiet evening ( Tuesday night) but it didn't matter. Mussels with Guinness were very good to start and then for mains, pizza, noodles with seafood (a little spicy) were too much for us to finish!... More

On the way back from a daytrip to Dublin we visited this restaurant simply to have a meal. We were pleasantly surprised by the comprehensive menu, offering, apart from the usual pizzas and pastas, also meat dishes and fish dishes. We selected different starters but shared the main course, a selection of grilled fish with roasted potatoes. Everything well seasoned,... More

Visited here with my husband. Husband had pizza and I had the cannelloni. Beautiful authentic Italian food with appropriate sized portions. The setting was nice and clean and staff were lovely. Pity this restaurant isn't closer to home would definately be returning!

Visited Cavallinos Saturday night. The decor is rustic but comfortable and the restaurant was busy. The staff are very nice and helpful with information on the dishes. I had the lamb chops with roast vegetables and roast potatoes. My god was it good. Full of flavor. My wife had a pasta dish, she wasn't mad about it as she found... More

We have eaten here a number of times and always had a good experience. Good authentic Italian food in a rustic type setting. The owner is always prepared to explain the dishes and gluten free requirements are easily accommodated. The wine list is good and reasonable value can be had.

Proper Italian food is really hard to get. However, here the choice of food complimented with some nice Italian wine. We had a nice pizza and a creamy carbonara. Owner is exceptionally nice. Overall a real go to place for a nice meal in great surroundings. Parking is usually very easy just outside.

Visited on a Wednesday night with 2 clients. There was a party of around a dozen already in, but we were the only other table in. We got a very personalised service from the owner and we discussed meals that weren't on the actual menu. I had a chilli spaghetti with meatballs and it was fantastic. The wine was excellent...

My husband had the lamb which in... More

Went here for an early lunch on valentines day to avoid the crowd. Service is very very poor and food is worse. Partner's meal was in edible and had to be returned; bacon bits were rubbery and stale. Pizzas seem good. Wouldn't recommend for a sit down meal.
