Description: Ivano's and Gianni's philosophy and passion for food was cultivated at childhood and developed while working for some of the most renowned establishments in the world. Gianni, Ivano, Attilio and their team strive to make dishes that fulfil a true Italian's most essential senses - exceptional tasty but simple food, beautifully presented in austere but welcoming surroundings. Ingredients are sourced from around Ireland and Italy interpreng dishes from Calabria, Puglia, Sicily and Sardinia, and reach further into the Mediterranean with Moorish influences revealing dishes with bold yet clean and distinct flavours.

The guys managed to cook perfect Italian and multi regional food (yes it is not the classical foreign "only south Italian cuisine") in a simple and delicious menu.
Lovely Italian human touch coupled with Northern Europe efficiency.
Pricing absolutely reasonable for Dublin standards.
Only point of attention, since the place is an old house, the space is tight and tables are a bit crammed.

We had a lovely three course meal here recently. The waiting staff were very friendly and helpful, and everyone who served us was of Italian origin.

I had scallops to start which were delicious, but were surpassed by the seafood linguine for main course, which was the special that particular night.

For dessert I had a pesto panaccotta which was unusual, but worked really well!

Overall, it was a really enjoyable evening and reasonably priced for the quality of food on offer. It was approx €120 for a table for two enjoying a three course meal with a bottle of wine. Thoroughly recommended!

Had a lovely dinner here last week. Food was very well presented and tasted delicious. Wait staff were friendly. We were not rushed and the owner came over to speak to us a number of times. We will definitely make a return visit.

We had an early bird dinner. I can not overemphasize how good it was. We will be in Dublin for another two months and plan to go back once a week. Fabulous food, lovely people. Great house wine at 23 euros a bottle. Every course was wonderful. Can't say what to eat because everything was so good. Looking forward to raking friends there.
