Very disappointed with the food. Specially the caprese salad. The giant blobs of cheese does not make a caprese salad. I have the ravioli and they were overcooked and quite dry on the inside.

Excellent food. The seafood platter was delicious and, although pricey as a special on the night, there was a generous amount of selection on the plate. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. Venue is a little cramped particularly on a busy Saturday evening. Overall would recommend

We were on our last night in Ireland. Found the restaurant on trip advisor. Meet and exceeded our expectations. Our first table was very small for 6 of us. Manager moved us to a window seat which was perfect. We're Italian so we're extremely picky when it comes to Italian food. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They even brought ice cream with a candle in it at the end of our meal for our son's birthday. It was the perfect meal to end our trip to Ireland.

Overall simple, friendly, adaptable food menu that makes one feel warm. Service was friendly and welcoming. Manager seemed to sense those wanting to be quiet and those receptive to conversation. White and red Wines were surprisingly nice and inexpensive; often when you order by the glass you over pay for junk but this was the complete opposite. Choice of options changes what seems regularly and both visits my options were tasty. Food is good and in combination with all else outstanding experience during both visits.

Love the relaxed and friendly atmosphere in this restaurant . Great house red. Excellent menu at very reasonable prices. Food delicious and portion size very good . Easy to book on line . Made a late decision on Saturday and even though the restaurant was very busy the service was good. This is my second time to visit the restaurant and hope to have many more delicios meals there. I would highly recommend Al Fresco
