Irene is a very smart restaurant on the edge so Piazza Della Republicca with seating both indoors and outside on the square. We chose to sit outside to soak up the evening atmosphere. There were street artists performing and a pretty carousel which lit the square and made it really quite magical.
As to the food- we were served by Francesco who was faultless from beginning to end. Nothing was to much trouble and he was very considerate, making our daughter's 18th birthday that little extra bit special.
We started with a mixture of octopus salad and calamari with a green salad with mozzarella. Already we were spoilt! For main course we shared the steak for 2 which was beautifully presented and generous. We paired it with a lovely Brunello red wine at Francesco's suggestion which was delicious. We enjoyed all the dishes we ordered and the chef even prepared a dish especially for our 8yr old who quite simply wanted a burger!!
In spite of being full we felt we had to finish off with a dessert. The Tiramisu was again very tasty and just the right sized portion. We were given a glass of Moscato to compliment the dessert which also slipped down nicely.
We were so pleased with the evening that we asked to see the chef who happily came up and was very animated.
All in all we had a fabulous evening. The service was spot on and the food delicious. We walked away with huge smiles on our faces and enjoyed the atmosphere in the square for a bit.
We cannot fault this restaurant in any way and look forward to coming again.
