What a great find whilst walking through Dublin. A friendly and efficient team serving great coffee and we had a couple of pastries which were delicious.
If you visit here… give in to your temptation and choose that cannolo!
We had diner hete last night, Nice servants. Italian girl. We ordered mussels saute, was ok as a starter.
Then came the main...pasta with a sauce of the house... i send back the pasta because for me these where not cooked enough... i should not...have said this... a cook came to the table and shouted that it was al dente like in Italy. I have been in Italy many times but never had undercooked pasta.
Anyway we left the place rightaway... I should have know this man and the chef can not cook.. to many Burgers on the menu, not to much Italian style meals.
Si do yourself a favour and walk by...More
Only came in here because butlers next door was full. €3 for a miserably small average tasting cup of coffee that I had to go and fetch because they forgot even though I paid in advance. Lots more places in Dublin to get a decent...coffee. AvoidMore
I went there with a group of friends, we ordered different pizzas and food to share and everything was just amazing, fresh and delicious. The staff was lovely, very attention to make us understand the ingredients in the menu and giving us great suggestions! During...our dinner they came many times to make sure we liked our choices!
We loved it and would recommend it to anyone!!!!More

1145 am/ 7th April.
Just walked out of the cafe on Liffey St. An almost empty restaurant - only 2 other people. The waitress could not have been ruder. It took 3 attempts to order as she was too busy talking to her friend at...the counter. We were then abruptly cut off mid sentence and told to move table. I confronted her (politely) on being so rude and she then pretended she couldn't speak English. I tried a second time and she shrugged and said she couldn't speak English. This made matters worse. It was farcical but also appalling behaviour. EL Fornaio you can and should do better than this. We left and went elsewhere. I have gone there weekly for years but this was the first time at at weekend. I will never ever return. The waitress in question clearly has problems with customer service and nothing but contempt for the people who frequent the place and by extension pay her salary. This person is losing the restaurant business and management should either train her properly or get someone who likes dealing with people.More

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly to the point that we felt obliged to tip them (😂). thank you!
We ordered coffees, glass of prosecco and wine later that evening. Meat platter with one kind of cheese accompanied by an amaizing, freshly baked bread...was a good deal we thought- and very tasty.
Lovely evening in a sweet little spot we just happened to walk in. will def be back! I'm giving 4 stars because I simply think it was very good but nothing super extraordinary...but the place really does deserve your attention & you won't regret picking it over other spots in that area;-) cheersMore
We went for pizza after a long day touring Dublin! The pizza is delicious, real Italian style! Fresh ingredients, tasted like wood fired pizza! Great wine selection! Nice atmosphere,friendly, helpful staff. Location right by Temple Bar area, beautiful location!
15 EUR pizza with ridiculously poor ingredients: litterally a big piece of bread with little pieces of mozzarella, few minuscle cherry tomatoes and invisible mushrooms. Total robbery 15 EUR as frozen pizza in LIDL for 0.84 EUR is richer.
Will never come back and would...not recommend it.More
