We stumbled upon this restaurant by chance and were pleasantly surprised. They have great lunch deals (with excellent garlic bread for starters) and perfectly sized pasta dishes. We left satisfied without feeling too full. All in all a fantastic place!

Visited here with family...great menu and lots to choose from, there was a large group of us so everyone had something different and one dish nicer than the other, pizza is pretty special though! Price was reasonable and we will return

Found this place as we were wandering around Dublin. They had a varied menu and that appealed to us. Prices are a little higher, but if you get a pizza it is large enough to share with someone. They have ground floor seating as well...More

If you can't go to Italy, go to Cafe Topolis. Delicious food, big portions, decent prices. Best Italian restaurant I've been to in Dublin.

Lovely intimate Italian restaurant. Casual & comfy. Food was tasty & cooked fresh. Penne salmon was delicious. €52.00 for 3 starters, 3 mains & 2 glasses of wine was good value. Will definitely return .

Went with a small group recently. The waitress that took our order was very rude, she seemed like she'd rather have been anywhere else. To be honest the bad attitude and mediocre food made me feel the same. I wouldn't recommend this place when you...More

When I was there I didn't enough covers for 50 people. They would probably have to dedicate the whole restaurant to your party. Best ask them

Located in the heart of the city center, next door to Dublin's City Hall and serves its guests with a wide variety of mouth-watering Italian cuisine. All of the pizzas at Cafe Topolis are cooked in the traditional wood burning pizza oven. A wood fired pizza oven cooks your pizza better than a normal oven because of the heat it stores in its dense walls.Due to its shape, the oven disperses the heat very evenly which ensure the pizza is perfect when it arrives at your table. If you're going out for lunch, then you can get a great lunch at Cafe Topolis from €8.95.The early bird menu starts at 3pm and offers a great set meal from €14.95.
