“very satisfied”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014 via mobile

The restaurant is situated in Temple Bar, the tourist area in Dublin. It is one of the very few Italian restaurants found in the area. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The relaxed ambience of the restaurant is ideal for a romantic date or some peaceful time with friends or family. Although there isn't much choice of dishes on the menu, the food is delicious especially the pizza frutti del mare (seafood) which I tried. The food is quite expensive but definitely worth it. The desserts are also relatively costly. I would doubtlessly dine out there again.

“Great meal experience for our group”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

I recently took a group of friends for dinner at La Caverna which is very central to the city and in Temple Bar. We had a very good experience, our own area upstairs, very good service and a good selection of very tasty food. I had calamari to start then the lamb shank, and apple pie slice for dessert. Our group will be back.

I started eating in La Caverna about 6 years now. I really enjoy going there as I find the food very nice and great value, the staff are very friendly and Dan the manager is a lovely man and so friendly. He will always greet us with a lovely smile. We have had many a lovely time there and it's quite relaxing. Will be returning very soon,
