Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I just phoned at 21:00pm to place an order and go to pick up and when I told them I wanted to place an order they replied "PUES NO" which means in English "BUT NO". I don't understand why they have been so rude to...me if on the website it says that the restaurant closes at 22:00 and their Collection Orders close 20 minutes prior to their closing times. I live in the building next door and from now on I will definitely look for another pizzeria.More

Sometimes you see reviews and wonder is it the same place. I suppose any restaurant can have a bad day but I've been here three times now and every time's been a winner. Proper, uncomplicated Italian food, proper Italian staff with a happy attitude and...very attentive. (They're also patient with my fledgling Italian.) It's a small place but they'll squeeze you in somewhere if they can. My friends and I have always had a great night at Il Fornaio.More

Booked a table for 3 people for 6pm. A group of 3 walked in just in front of us with no reservation and get seated straight away. We then had to wait for a table to become available. 1 hour and 10 minutes after we...sat down we were told the table was needed and we could either leave or squash onto a small table for 2. I questioned why we had to go when the people who didn’t have a reservation and other table that were in before us were not being asked but the lady wasn’t at all apologetic. She then didn’t even come back to us to take payment for the bill (which she presented us with when asking us to leave). When we went to the counter to pay she asked another person to deal with us and to say sorry about the table but the other girl refused. We will NOT be backMore

Fantastic Italian find near Custom House Square. Easy walk from Hilton Garden Inn hotel on River Liffey. Great pepperoni pizza and pasta. Limited bottle beer offerings - red and white wines by the glass. Small but quaint. Immediate seating later a Sunday night. Reasonable pricing....Good eats.More

I usually come to the place (min 3 times per month) and unfortunately, today I had not a good experience. One of the dishes I usually have, came different this time. I gave the feedback to waitress (new one) and she lied to me by...saying that she gave the feedback to the chef and the "chef mentions that the dishes changes weekly " Come on! Suggestion: make sure what is coming in your dish before getting it to avoid any disappointmentMore

Bread was stale on the antipasti I asked for fresh bread and they toasted the stale bread and brought it back The antipasti was the worst I've had Some borderline almost turned ham with packet chicken with balsamic vinegar lashed on top and some prosciuto...and chorizo I had seafood pasta for main and it was tasteless . My friend had the braised beef pasta which was also poor We ate it because we were starving The service also wasnt great at all the staff didnt seem friendly I was really looking forward to some decent Italian food and this unfortunately wasn't itMore

I fancied pizza so decided to try this restaurant . My pizza in fairness was excellent but my wifes calzone was not cooked in the middle , in fact the cheese had not melted . We were the only ones in the restaurant so to...save a fuss i gave her half of mine . The main reason that i will not return is that there was no water to wash hands in the bathroom and they had no hand sanitiser available either . After then last 2 years this is simply not good enough .More
