Nice quiet place in the heart of Dublin. Very nice Italian food and the staff was very nice and helpful. Would recommend the ravioli and the restaurant.

The menu is very broad, you can have pizza but also vegan Bolognese or lamb stew, which we liked a lot, because everybody found something they liked. You should try the pizza though, it’s really good and the dough is just perfect. Besides, you can...see how it is prepared which the children liked a lot. The music is a bit loud, but apart from that the atmosphere in the restaurant is very nice and cozy with beautiful interior design, especially the bookshelf in the basement is worth a look..More

We heard about this place from the Hop on Hop off bus tours as when you purchase a bus ticket, it includes 2 for 1 on main meals at this venue. We arrived and were greeted warmly by the staff. We opted for a cheesy...garlic bread starter and I’ve got to say it was one of the best I have ever eaten. The pasta for mains was also equally as good. Staff super friendly and welcoming, would definitely recommend for anyway visiting Dublin.More

Had a late lunch with my son today, we didn’t book but welcomed warmly by staff who found us a nice table on a busy Saturday afternoon, the menu was very good with a variety of italien food, pizzas, pasta and lovely starters. The food...was delicious and would really recommend as it’s affordable. The staff were efficient and extremely friendly and welcoming, the decor was great also. Would recommend if you are in dublin!More

We had a wonderful day, in a very comfortable and friendly environment, to celebrate Mothers day with my mam and my two daughters. The food was excellent, the staff were most welcoming, overall a fabulous day. Thank you so much. L.Hamilton

It all started off as a very pleasant evening. The food was delicious and the service efficient and friendly. To end the evening we asked for the cocktail menu, as neither of us fancied anything on the menu the bar man agreed to make us...a porn star martini. When the young waiter brought it over there was no shot of prosecco with it as anyone who drinks PM will know there should be. When we mentioned it to the guy he said we were only looking for free prosecco, He was half joking but the more we argued there should be the more he implied we were chancers. In the end my friend googled it and showed him a photo and the shot was immediately brought over to the table. The drink was undrinkable, it was just awful. Admittedly he did say they had no vanilla vodka but I assumed they would do as I would and substitute it vanilla puree, There was also no passion fruit puree added as far as I could tell. We complained but again made to feel like we were looking for free drinks. May I say my friend and I are in our 60's and have no need to play such games. The drink was not the issue, it is how the situation was dealt with that will stop me from returning, If a manager gets to read this get your finger out and start training your staff in good customer service skills.More

We ordered Pasta Carbonara even thou it wasn't on the menu, cheff made one for us. And it was amaizing, portion just enough to be full but not over eaten, the pasta was creamy and delicious. After that we had dessert, Tiramissu and espresso. Staff...was really helpfull and polite. We enjoyed our dinner and will come back again. If You enjoy in delicious food and tasty desserts, we highly recomend this restourant.More

Delighted to get to finally eat here. Upon arrival all Covid rules strictly adhered to which was good to see. Charming decoration inside the restaurant. The food was outstanding especially the “Linguine al frutti di mare” it was exceptional. Excellent presentation on every dish and...super service through out the meal. Can’t wait to go back.More

Excellent food and a very nice ambience (the music was kept nicely low, and the lighting was soft), and the staff were very courteous, helpful, and efficient. A very positive experience all round. Thank you!
