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.

Amazing spot! Staff were really friendly! The food was so fresh and authentic! Not too pricey for what you get. Had the mozzarella with Parma ham and the aubergine pasta and both were so tasty! I would 100% eat there again!

I had really high hopes for Bar Italia after reading reviews as well as hearing from a friend how amazing this place was. The food was honestly amazing - each member of our party had the truffle pasta and honestly I thought it was the...closest to true Italian food that we could get. The service however was a completely different story. We had a reservation and while we were seated right away, we were seated down in the basement where everyone was crammed together and packed in like sardines. Our waiter was honestly the worst and it took 30 minutes and 5 reminders for us to get tap water. When he did finally come back with tap water he rushed us to order and then didn't come check on us for the remainder of the meal. A female waitress checked on us throughout the meal and we thought she had taken over our table, until the end when our original waiter came over to clear our plate. Now I know in Europe it's common for staff to let you sit and wait and ask for the check, but when we did finally ask for the check he grumbled and made it seem like an inconvenience for him to cash us out. Nevertheless, I still give this restaurant a 3/5 because the food was amazing and I'm sure if we had a different experience with the staff this review would have been a 5/5. If you choose to dine here request to sit upstairs :)More

Fantastic authentic Italian restaurant in the city centre….. looked at some of the reviews before coming, quickly deciding any bad ones were completely out if context! Service was excellent from Felice who looked after us really well, even though he was busy, food was absolutely...delicious and better than some I had in Rome during a trip in the spring time! Wine was very good too with a great selection, although the red Casalforte Amarone della Valpolicella as recommended by Felice has to be tried…. Would highly recommend and will be visiting again, just ignore the poor reviews!More

My daughter loves Italian food so we went looking for good Italian in the Dublin’s City center. Bar Italian had good ratings and was easy to reserve online. For starters we had bruschetta and grilled vegetables. Not super creative but executed perfectly. I had the...gnocchi octopus special and my daughter had mushrooms ravioli. Hers was tasty and mine was excellent. The service is what made me give it 5 stars. Super friendly, and authentic Italian spirit. They take care of your table French style with many team members but everyone was very warm and responsive, and not pretentious. A nice solid dining experience.More

We placed our order with our unhappy, rushing waiter but when I ordered two appetizers, he made a face. They mostly offer pasta dishes which are all carbohydrates and meat dishes. As a vegan who can't eat much sugar, I just wanted to order an...appetizer that was simple. The waiter returned to say he had spoken to his manager and I was not allowed to order an appetizer. I had to order a full meal. I have never experienced that anywhere. So- we left. A restaurant cannot dictate such a demand. As we were leaving the waiter was with the manager. I said we are leaving. He said appetizers aren't allowed as a meal. I said I understand so you won't earn anything from us. We went across the street to another Italian restaurant. Dublin is full of restaurants. No one has to stay in a restaurant so unaccommodating.More

The food was amazing and tasted wonderful, there was however very little of it considering how expensive the menu is. We were disappointed that we could not pay cash as being travellers we'd rather have paid in cash than on card and that wine had...incorrectly been included on our bill - thankfully that was quickly taken off once raisedMore

Visited this restaurant twice this month. My wife and I both had the Stozzepeta (pasta with pepper cream sauce the first time and a pizza the second with Italian salami. We enjoyed both dishes and can recommend this restaurant if you are in Dublin. It...is on the banks of The Liffey and a half block away from the Hilton Morrison. Good wine list and friendly service.More
