Went here whilst in Dublin for the weekend. Maybe my new favourite pizza restaurant. Booked here last minute which was surprising as it was full not long after we sat down at 7pm. Not massive but the food was great, I like my pizza and...these guys make very good pizza. Great base and plenty of toppings. We had starter and main and a few drinks and that was plenty for us both, good size portions. Prices were about average for the area and not too bad generally, especially when considering where its located. Good location on the edge of the temple bar area but not quite in the melee.More

Arrived without a booking. Only one other table occupied at the time so it wasn't a problem, thank you. Staff attentive and helpful initially. Ordered two pizzas which came on large, pizza sized, platters which.... were a struggle to fit on a tiny table for...two! The pizza was very tasty, can't complain about the flavour, however, it came on a cold plate. The first slice was great, as were the next couple. By the time it came to the 2nd half it was tepid at best. The last 3 slices were freezing cold. We are not slow eaters I can assure you, and even faster that night due to the rate our food was getting cold! I pointed this out to the waitress who said, 'well it is a thin pizza!' I pointed out to her that, albeit it would be less pleasant for her hands to carry, it really should come on a hot plate (I would have welcomed even warm that night). We are not local to Dublin but if we were, despite the good flavour, we would not be returning.More

Although the food was tasty, the portion of ravioli I got was very small the Tiramisiu was very small also. My friend got Carbonara which had a strong taste of eggs. Staff were friendly and food came quick which were two positives.

A lot of friends recommended me this restaurant as I love italian food and now I go almost every week. I love the spaghetti allo scoglio and their pizzas are delicious. They also have a great variety of italian wines and the staff is always...very friendly and professional. A restaurant that really embodies the essence of italian cuisine. I would totally recommend it.More

Thuis is a very nice restaurant with great service. In our company some people had pasta and some did have a steak. All around everyone was very happy with the dishes.

Have been a few times and always have had excellent food. The only niggle is the noise of the Luas tram which runs overhead but minor issue. The prices are very reasonable and a wide choice of pizza and pasta.
