It's an Italian menu.
Excellent food ! I'd even go as far as to say up there with the very best.
and they seem to have done a good job improving the overall look and feel of what I always considered a very tatty premises.

The menu reads with a mouthwatering want! A working lunch sounds good.

You recommended this ages ago Micheál but it was only yesterday that we went.A large party of friends including two children had the MOST enjoyable afternoon and early night.
I never like bringing children to a formal restaurant but as it was a three generation gathering they were an integral part. The minute we arrived the waiter was over with colouring pencils coloured drawings and two large jusgs of blackberry coloured water and orange coloured water...just what the children needed...not a beep out of them for the duration. The food was the scrummiest Italian I have ever had. A huge selection at prices that wouldn't break the bank.
Well, yesterday we went to Toscano for the early bird menu. Warm and inviting restaurant in from the bitter wind. The choice was as good as ever though the wine prices are steep and half bottles almost the same price as full bottles! Beers (in bottles) were not inspiring either. Still we enjoyed enormously and had great chats with our friends. They didn't throw us out at 6.30 pm either.

Love the Ritz and the Miami too.........both have the expertise on chips and the ultimate fresh cod! I had some food from Kyoto on Patrick Street which was so tasty. Great restaurants in the Town, especially from our new citizens. Take the Curry Garden........Jewel in the Crown........these guys provide such delicious and reasonably priced food. Well done to them.

Just reading this today gingertom. Don't know the Curry Garden or the Jewel in the Crown are they town centre? I had a take away from the Bombay Pantry at the roundabout in Glenageary the other evening and got an early special chicken korma, rice and bhaji for less than a tenner.
