We stopped in here on a Friday night for a meal after a few drinks and it was delicious! Very reasonable too will definitely be back. You have to try the Carbonara it is one of the best around!

Slow and impolite service. A continuous vibe that none of the staff wanted to be there. Completely over priced. Would not recommend this place for a moment. A lot more better and authentic Italian restaurants in Dublin.

We just finished dinner at this restaurant and the pizza was excellent. We ate at a neighboring Italian restaurant two nights ago and it was not nearly as good.
