We are very proud of our exclusive Italian wine list; we spend a lot of time visiting the ‘Cantinas’ in Italy to find exceptional wines to bring back home to Ireland for our customers to enjoy. This award and the award for best customer service is a fantastic acknowledgement of the commitment of our team to providing our customers with a memorable dining experience.”
