after many visit to l'officina, having seen all the changes and extensions since they open a few years back, the food is fairly consistently good, prices a little high but quality of product is a plus, was there last week and enjoyed the risotto, could have done with more sausage but plenty cheese to compensate, antipasti and salads are good,...

Had lunch there recently (20.5.2017), while visiting Kildare Village. I have eaten before at their restaurant near Trinity College, so I had expectations. Now I cannot fault my food - Panino and minestrone - it was good, tasty and fresh, but small portioned and expensive (11 euro) for what you got. My friend had smoked salmon salad. Generous enough, but... More

Had 'Biscuit' ice cream and 'Cassata' ice cream from the salesperson outside L'Officina by Dunne and Crescenzi. The Biscuit flavour was inedible: full of rubbery lumps (wafer maybe, mixed in instead of biscuit?): had to throw in a bin. The Cassata was so granular and grainy with sugar (?) that I had a coughing fit and had to also leave... More

This is a good looking restaurant and welcome if you have just completed a long drive. However, when we were there it was not busy but the staff acted as though they were working flat out. There were long delays between sitting down / ordering / drinks arrival / food arrival. The food was ok. We were glad to leave.

We booked ahead and we glad we did! People queing out the door! Deservedly popular for lunch. Food very good....lamb ravioli, salmon salad and bolognese all excellent. Pizza a bit doughy but nice nonetheless. Only negative would be service which whilst friendly was a bit slow.

Had an average lunch here recently. Food was only ok. It's surprising they don't do baby/toddler food bowls when Kildare Village is full of babies. There isnt a great selection of restaurants here.

Thank you for your review. We do have a children's menu. Regarding toddler's choice I would suggest the minestrone and you could ask for it to be blended should you so wish. Perhaps we should make this more evident on the menu. More
