The Irish breakfast had a slew of cooked mushrooms and tomatoes and the bread was excellent. Definitely a different take on the classic Irish breakfast.

Despite the fact that the Cioccolata is not actually that cioccolatish/thick (really, if you've ever been to Florence and tried you'd tell, but it's good nevertheless ) the Tiramisu and pear tart are to die for .... Tasty but not too sweet, the way desserts and pastries should be (for me at least, hehe). Capuccino and coffe is good as... More

We were visiting Dublin for a weekend and, having had an amazing meal at Fire (up the road) on Friday, we decided to go for a chain on Saturday. We have experience of Carluccios locally at home and knew the food would be nice and reasonably priced. We booked online and turned up for our meal at 8pm. All ok... More

The wait for a table was short. Waiters were friendly but under pressure - maybe understaffed? Food was nice. Value was good. Not rushing to come back but I'll be back!

I ate twice here, which is a sign that the food was great. Unforutnately, service was very slow, and the dessert I ordered ought to have had a scoop of vanilla ice cream - but there was none.

We were in town for a meeting and this place seemed to fit the bill, with a nice-looking menu posted outside. We were seated downstairs promptly and given a variety of menus, including a 'set' one, which we both ordered from. My husband started with bruschetta, which was a big helping, somewhat swamped by the rocket salad; I had the... More

I wandered in here for lunch because it seemed like a perfectly good restaurant for a quick bite to eat. I chose the 'Crispy pancetta, gorgonzola cheese, rocket, walnuts, spinach and radicchio leaves with balsamic dressing'...Sounds lovely right? It wasn’t. I asked for goat’s cheese instead of the gorgonzola, when it came it had both but I was ok with... More

Went there for lunch. It was pretty busy but we got a table upstairs. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Lovely atmosphere. The food was delicious and served promptly. Cant fault anything. The menu was extensive and lots of options. Salads were fresh and crisp and the garlic bread was amazing. Will definatly return and recommend highly!

We came into this cute Italian place just off Grafton Street late on a Sunday night and were accommodated with a table as long as we ordered by 10 PM. We only had appetizers (bruschetta, fritto misto) but they were very good and service was excellent.
