Came across this restaurant while walking through Temple Bar and we were really impressed with the great prices and amazing food! We opted for a calzone and ravioli which arrived quickly and tasted great.

I have just visited this restaurant with my 10 year old daughter. The service wasn't great but I turned a blind eye. What I could turn a blind eye to was the fact my daughter ordered spaghetti bolognese. She has - moderate allergy to nuts...More

No frills Italian restaurant just off Fleet Street in the vibrant Temple Bar area of Dublin. Reasonable choice of pizza, pasta and fish/meat. And good choice of Italian wine by the glass as well as the bottle. Fills up quickly in the evenings.

Went there waiting for a lovely meal, since I’ve already been there once and it was great, but the pasta came undercooked as well as the prawns. So much pepper I’ve barely tasted the dish. Staff not so friendly either.

Good quality food at decent price. Small venue so you may have to wait but well worth it. Stayed in Dublin 3 nights and ate here first night, so good went back on final night too. Recommend meatballs
