Toscana is a great little Italian in the center of Dublin. The food is fresh and tasty and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Would recommend making a booking, the early bird is one of the best around.

Every time we visit Dublin, Toscana is a must stop for us! It is conveniently located in Temple Bar. The service is always exceptional and the food is always outstanding. I highly recommend Toscana - we consider it the best Italian restaurant in Dublin!
