Everything about this place was great. Our group was quite large and loud,but we were made to feel very welcome. Whilst the food was great,all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals which were very reasonably priced for city centre on a Saturday. We will be back if we make a return trip to Dublin!

We went for lunch while walking around Dublin. It is very close to Christ's Church (also worth a visit). The fare is traditional but well prepared and reasonably priced. The service was efficient but not rushed. An enjoyable spot to dine and rest during a day of touring. The pastas were good: the linguine di pesce was loaded with pieces... More

Just a surprisingly wonderful dinner and excellent service. My steak was cooked perfectly and was unbelievably flavourful. Food was simple but nicely prepared. First rate.

The waiter was very charming, the food was only so-so. Shop bought desserts are not what you'd expect from a fairly-expensive-for-what-it-is Italian restaurant

I could not fault the service and food I received in this restaurant. I had the most beautiful grilled chicken and after much deliberating I decided on the baked potato instead of the salad however I received a lovely side salad which was very large. The staff were polite, friendly and didn't rush us off the table when we lingered... More

Everytime I travel to Dublin, then this is the first place that I head for in order to enjoy an authentic Italian meal. Once again, it never fails to live up to expectations and upon taking another couple with us to celebrate a "special" birthday then we had an absolutely wonderful meal. The wine at this restaurant is superb and... More
