Award Winning Restaurants

An Award Winning Year at Ristorante Rinuccini

Looking back at a phenomenal 25th anniversary year we have been humbled by the support that our customers and indeed the restaurant industry have shown us.

We always strive to give a memorable dining experience and place a real emphasis on providing excellent customer service. Over the years Chef Antonio has gained many accolades including ‘Chef of the Year’ and also received acknowledgements from the McKenna Guides, Georgina Campbell and Lucinda O’Sullivan.

Seeing our customers enjoying their dining experience at Rinuccini has always been our reward. This year we have been honoured to receive national recognition for our team and service.

Restaurant Awards & Accolades

Restaurant AwardsWith menus specially created by Chef Antonio Cavaliere, Rinuccini has been consistently listed in the Michelin Guide since 2004 and we were thrilled to get the Michelin nod once again for 2016.

Over the past 25 years the whole family have been involved in the restaurant’s continued success so finalising in the ‘Family Run Business’ category in the Blacknight SME Awards held special significance for us.

We were delighted to have been awarded ‘Best Customer Service’ in Kilkenny for the Irish Restaurant Awards 2015 and we completely overwhelmed to scoop the national award; bringing home a coveted #FoodOscar gong!  This award was all the more special as hundreds of our customers took the time to nominate us.

We were shortlisted in the Blog Awards Ireland from thousands of entries across Ireland. We were also named in the Top-Ten Traveller’s Choice Awards putting us in the top 1% on TripAdvisor from thousands of restaurants around the globe.
