Ristorante Rinuccini has been awarded ‘Ireland’s European Restaurant’ at this year’s Keeling’s Gold Medal Awards 2016. The awards recognise excellence in the Irish hospitality and catering industries and are run in association with Hotel & Catering Magazine.
Having been shortlisted for four awards including Ireland’s Wine Experience, European Restaurant, Ireland’s Fine Dining Restaurant of the year and Leinster’s People’s Choice Award, we are delighted to have scooped this award and feel honoured to have been chosen from such an exclusive list of world class restaurants throughout Ireland.
We would like to thank the dedicated team at Ristorante Rinuccini, many of whom have been with us since we opened 27 years ago, providing exceptional customer service in a warm and welcoming environment.
Here at Rinuccini we strive to provide our customers with a rich dining experience with all the delicious authentic flavors of Italy. We take immense pride that our produce is sourced and imported directly from Italy – including the finest olive oils, charcuterie and cheeses, while the restaurant’s sumptuous décor features beautiful hand blown Murano glass from Venice.
The restaurant also offers a number of exclusive Italian wines, imported from Antonio’s home surrounds of Lazio on the west coast of Italy and handpicked by the family from the very best vineyards. Showcasing our wines, the restaurant houses a custom-made wine cellar where diners can choose their favourite wines. The cellar is also visible through special glass portals built into the floor of the upper dining area.
We’re looking forward to presenting a ‘Taste of Tuscany’ in November, an exclusive wine pairing event with a special seasonal menu cooked by our head chef.
Continuing the winning streak, we won ‘Best Wine Experience’ in Leinster at the 8th annual Irish Restaurant Awards 2016. The Irish Restaurant Awards, known as the #FoodOscars, are one of the most prestigious industry awards in Ireland.
We would like to express huge ‘thanks to all of our customers who took time to nominate us and made this award a reality, it is very much appreciated.
