Rinucinni: "Good Itialian opposite the Castle" Rinucinni Tip by Tayto

Rinucinni, Kilkenny: 2 reviews and 0 photos

Good Italian restaurant in a great location in Kilkenny. The restaurant has recently renovated and extended the upstairs part and is now on 3 levels. The ground level and upper most areas have the best atmospheres and it is very lively. It is advisable to book about 2-3 weeks in advance if you want a Fri / Sat night as it is very popular. There is an early bird menu and a good lunchtime menu.

AN interesting feature of the upper floor is there are two large glass floor panels where you can see straight dow to the wine cellar below. Its strange to be walking towards your table and suddenly the floor seems to disappear beneath you ! Also short skirts or kilts may not be advisable at this point !

The food is good italian cuisine with not a pizza in sight. Its probably in the above average to expensive category but worth it. You know you are in a slightly posher restuarant when you get napkins rather than paper serviettes though the dress code is smart casual to relaxed.

Favorite Dish: Lasagne was very good
