As a lone traveller I look for a friendly greeting, a quiet corner and good food at a reasonable price. Al Boschetto had all these in spades.

We enjoyed a great meal Friday night and then Saturday night, when there wasn't a seat to be found anywhere in Dublin after the Ireland- England rugby match, we returned. The food was great again and the staff did a remarkable job taking great care of the big influx of customers - yea Marco who made sure we were well... More

Good food, lovely ambience, & friendly staff at Al Boschetto, honour the 'celebration of life', in this marvellous Italian restaurant. "Life is a combination of magic & pasta", Federico Fellini said so beautifully; so, go add magical sparkle to your day, with some delicious pasta at Al Boschetto... Gratitude to all at Al Boschetto, Ballsbridge & continued success.

We arrived in a very large group but this's didn't stop the restaurant staff from accommodating everyone's needs. A few of our group had special dietary requirements which the restaurant took into consideration and tweeked items on the menu to suit. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. We would happily return l

We go to this restaurant everytime we are in Dublin but after our last visit during the rugby weekend NEVER AGAIN. Service was poor from start to finish and yes I appreciate staff were busy but it didn't stop them adding a 10% service charge for 2 people and a terrible service. Firstly we ordered wine but had to remind... More

Stopped in for a quick, early meal. I was tied of sandwiches and protein bars. I stepped out of my apartment in Dublin, in a cold rain, to step down the street to Al Boschetto. Ordered the house rose', tagliolini with seafood, a small salad and garlic bread. The food was hot, and excellent. This was my third visit to... More

I've eaten here a few times, both for lunch and dinner, working for a local business. Today, three of us girls had lunch there to celebrate a birthday. I booked online this morning and mentioned in the booking form that it was a birthday lunch. We arrived at the restaurant and were warmly greeted, as we always have been. We... More

This restaurant is very expensive for the food they serve. It seems that rip off Ireland is well and truly back up running here. It's a pizzeria with a service charge without the service to back it up. I will not be returning here again.

We eat here every time we visit Dublin but will not return again. We booked for 7.30 after the Ireland game but when we arrived shortly after 7.30 were told we were late and our booking was for 7. I insisted the booking was 7.30 but the very curt and aggressive front of house lady insisted that we were wrong9i... More
