Returned, again, to Il Vicoletto. Another fantastic dinner. Christian is always welcoming. The Ragu di salsiccia con Pappardelle al Chianti Classico del Borgo Scopeto never disappoints.

We were a party of Scottish and Irish family members and dined on Saturday night. We loved the ambience, the food and thought the staff (especially the owner) were wonderful. The interior is cosy, elegant and intimate, the pasta delicious and the steak and fish portions huge. The pasta with walnut and porchini mushrooms was especially good. Baskets of italian... More

Not a restaurant I would have found without recomondation. Absolutely worth your hunger and time. Genuine Italian in food and wines. As it's quite small do make a reservation even mid week and out of season!

We had a problem with the online booking which was messed up by a 3rd party booking system that is linked through Il Vicoletto website. When we rang the restaurant it was remedied easily. The dining room is small. We were fortunate to get a table with a bit of space around it. I dislike restaurants where there are too... More

Everything was great! I tried the ravioli with shaved white truffle, delicious! One of the best meals I had! Would go back to Dublin just to go here again :P The service and atmosphere were also great! In general it was a very pleasant experience.

When we first booked Dublin, we referred to trip advisor for restaurants and promptly booked Il Vicoletto for our meal. Eagerly excited we headed over there and was met by this quaint restaurant and were shown to our table. The atmosphere was lovely, surrounded by various wines, but we were let down. The food was gorgeous but I had the... More

Have eaten here twice and enjoyed it greatly each time. Authentic Italian fare. Pastas are delicious and beautifully presented. Ravioli with white truffle butter was exquisite.Have recommended it to others and they have been pleased with experience as well. Wonderful wine by the glass selection and lovely authentic trattoria atmosphere. Staff are professional and unobtrusive.
