The Cavaliere family’s iconic Kilkenny restaurant is the essence of the Italian philosophy of La Bella Figura.
Right from the moment when you walk down the stairs and push open the door, Ristorante Rinuccini delivers the perfect impression, the perfect presentation, an effect that the Italians themselves call la bella figura. We all have the picture of that idealised restaurant in our minds, and Riccardo Cavaliere and his team brilliantly create it for their customers each and every evening. This ability to capture the artfulness of Italian cooking and eating, in all its manifest, elegant glory, is what makes Rinuccini such a treasure. There is no other dining room which is so comforting and cosseting, which means every meal here, thanks to the sprezzatura conjunction of beautiful cooking, superb wines and sympathetic service, is always a special occasion.
