Good Italian Eats in Dublin!

Late night dining and excellent Italian food in the heart of Dublin. Outstanding Italian cuisine if you are looking to take a short break from the overwhelming number of Pubs.

Visited mid-week for dinner with a friend. Restaurant was busy with some kids running amok and shouting - not the best atmosphere. The waiter was exceptional, very helpful and knowledgeable of the menu but the service at times was painfully slow - dessert took about 25 minutes for eton mess. Perhaps the kitchen was understaffed. Pasta was very undercooked and... More

We stopped in for cake and coffee to revive us after walking tour. Fantastic coffee. We had delicious brownies, pear and polenta cake and strawberry tarts with ice cream. Top notch tastes and superb quality.

I have visited here a few time for breakfast. It is very nice, with a good selection of great food. The coffee is amazing and the pastries are gorgeous. The staff are very helpful. The only downside is that it is incredibly busy and there can be a long wait for a table.

Stopped for dinner with friends after shopping and drinks and the menu was very impressive.. I choose the Chicken Milanese and it was absolutely perfect. It was served with an arugula and goat cheese salad drizzled with a balsamic but glaze. We had a Chilean Pinot Noir that is a label that I drink often while in Chile. The service... More

The dinner was, sadly, mediocre but the pastries were amazing, as were the croissants. I wouldn't return for dinner but came back more than once for the pastries.

We visited their newish outlet in Glasthule Village for coffee and cake. Reasonably priced but we have had similar fare cheaper elsewhere. Mean cup of coffee for the price paid. Lots of staff about the place but service seemed a little slow. We were not in any hurry so were happy to wait. Several times we were asked if our... More

Went here with some family after a special occasion and was absolutely delighted with everything. The coffee was perfect, not too hot (which I find is a problem these days in cafe, it burns it), the breakfast I had was just perfect. The only thing was the poached eggs were cooked in water that I think might've been slightly too... More

Met Family here for breakfast. I know this place well in London and was hoping that it would be as good .... we were not disappointed at all. The breakfast was simple but perfect, the staff were excellent and attentive really looked after us. Definitely worth a visit and the rest of the menu should be excellent too.
