Ristorante Rinuccini

Antonio and Marion Cavaliere’s well-known Italian restaurant is in a semi-basement in the impressive terrace opposite Kilkenny Castle and the closely packed tables are an indication of its popularity, with the room quickly filling up.


The cooking style is mainly classic Italian, with quite an extensive à la carte evening menu plus a shorter one available as an option at lunchtime.


Service at this Kilkenny restaurants prompt, and food is characterised by freshness of the carefully sourced local iingredients and a consistently high standard of cooking: excellent minestrone, a superb plate of house antipasti, delicious seafood and memorable pasta, which includes a luxurious house speciality of spaghetti with lobster.


Great service and outstanding value for money can sometimes be let down by a slightly frantic atmosphere, as so many people want to eat at this popular restaurant - but that ensures there is always a buzz.
