Booked this restaurant in advance as it's extremely popular and indeed it was busy the evening we visited -a Monday ! Very warm welcome on arrival . Food was wonderful -the pork escalopes in lemon sauce literally melts in your mouth and the chicken dish my other half had did likewise . Excellent service throughout . This is our favourite restaurant in Dublin after discovering it by accident a few years ago on a visit and we've back several times since -it never fails to be first class . Recommended it to a friend recently and she's been raving about it since . Be back next time we arena the city .

We visited this fab restaurant for a family lunch a couple of weeks ago and had such a wonderful experience we immediately booked a return visit the following week! Luca is a great host with an authentic passion for food and wine. We had a delicious selection of starters which included Dublin bay prawns and Scallops followed by Sea Bass and lamb shank. A great selection of wines and an atmosphere that is friendly welcoming and relaxed means this will be on my list of favourites.

Rosa Madre is an authentic Italian rwstaurant in Temple Bar that uses local ingredients to prepare delicious food. The owner and his wife hold court here and work veryhard to make sure that you enjoy your dining experience. They also offer a nice wine list. I recommend it!

We were recommended to try this restaurant as one of the best Italian restaurants in Dublin. Well, the food was very good,even though coffee was too bitter for me, it's ok, I understand tastes differ.What was really exceptional it's their service. Atmosphere is quite and peaceful, with nice music on background... Thank you, staff of the restaurant, for a pleasant evening.

Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and made booking over phone 2 weeks in advance because I knew Dublin would be very busy with France playing Ireland that day.
The menus are different to Italian restaurants in the UK and we both chose pasta dishes which were both excellent.
However, we were sat near the open kitchen and judging by all the fresh fish that we saw being cooked, this restaurants clearly specialises in seafood. Most of the other diners were clearly locals and most people were ordering fresh fish and all the dishes looked really good.
I would also mention that the service was excellent and we were not rushed even though it was a very busy Saturday in Dublin.
