Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited Bar Italia while we were in Dublin. What a fantastic dinner we had. I had the stuffed ravioli with mushrooms....literally melted in my mouth. My husband had the fettuccini with a braised lamb. Homemade, fresh pasta!!! It was that good, that we went...back two nights later. We will be back when we visit Ireland again.More

I stayed in Dublin for more than one month for business and I was in this restaurant a lot of times getting both pasta (Tagliatelle ragu' di salsiccia, Amatriciana and Carbonara) and Pinsa romana. Regarding the Pinsa it was perfect, pinsa pasta very light as...it should be and with a very good taste. I enjoyed it, it is the top one in Dublin. On pasta i was a little bit disappointed, sincerely i was expecting more taste and a better preparation. I found "Amatriciana" sauce not really linked with pasta, i mean the "guanciale" did not give its taste to the sauce. It seems that sauce was made in advance and maybe they cooked only the "guanciale" on the fly (it was not even crispy as it should be), then warmed up the sauce and added the "guanciale" when prepared the dish. "Carbonara" was a little bit better than Amatriciana, but also for this one i found "guanciale" not crispy and i didn't felt the expected real carbonara taste that i usually have in my Italy (Trattoria). "Tagliatelle al Ragu' di salsiccia", usually the salsiccia is very tasty and gives a very strong taste to the sauce, unfortunately also for this one i did not felt this "salsiccia" flavor in this pasta (maybe mixed it with more beaf and less "salsiccia"). It does not mean that pasta dish was not good, what i didn't like is that an italian restaurant (owned by italian and with an italian chef) should have an higher level than the average, at least on the italian dish. One good point on all pasta dishes is that it was fresh and handmade pasta (good quality). For sure i will come back to this restaurant for Pinsa (really the top), but for pasta i would not since same average taste can be found on a lot of others Dublin restaurants. Hope these feedbacks will help owner/chef to improve.More

The food was truly Italian and totally delicious. The pinsa was really good and the dough one of the best doughs we have had the pleasure of eating. The pastas were great, too. Prices a bit high for what we had. Very good selection of...wines, too. Our waiter was very polite. Other members of the staff looked less interested in their work. Beware they have a "no tracksuit" policy and are not happy when you are not dressed smartly. We showed up in our tracksuits (as we didn't know any better) without a reservation and were placed in a small, corridor-like space outside the restaurant which was not nice. The restaurant inside looked beautiful, though.More

Wine was Devine. Main courses were stunning. 2 pasta dishes. I...don’t think I will waste my time eating Italian food anywhere else in Dublin. You will def see me again.More

We wanted something other than steak or lamb. What a wonderful find. Wonderful food and such helpful staff. We had the bolognase sauce with Tagliatelle......highly recommended. The sauce was one of the nicest I have tasted. Well done.

A genuine Italian restaurant in Dublin. The staff is sympatheti, the manager is italian and give effort to explain any doubt of the menu. The menu is awesome and contains good appetizers. But the pastas are amazing, even a simple Tagliatelle alla Bolognese. Finally, there...is a good selection of wines and beers. The Italian food lovers should visit that place. Pre booking is important.More
