The restaurant is only recently opened, the owners having moved from the Port Road and 'Little Italy' to open this very much larger and very impressive looking restaurant. It was getting late when we arrived but as the lights were still on we chanced it and were delighted to find them still serving.
We chose a table at the back of the restaurant beside double glass doors which look out on to the river behind the building and the hills beyond. Sitting there, we were amused to see horses wander past on the riverbank and cattle in the field over the river ~ and this more or less in the middle of Letterkenny! Salvatore told us that they intend to make a little seating area just outside the double doors which will be perfect on a summers evening.
We sipped on a nice Corvo di Sicilia as we perused the menu ~ well as himself perused the menu, I already knew what I was having having eaten Salvatores food in 'Little Italy' ~ the Carpaccio Cipriani. I love it. An excuse to eat raw meat is always good said this little cannabalistic blogger. It is served with parmesan shavings, good olive oil and a little rocket. Just perfect. Himself went for the frogs legs. Neither of us have eaten these before but I sampled his and they are very tasty indeed, tender and succulent.
