Three of us visited on a busy Saturday night. Whist we were initially placed at a very small table we were moved to a larger table by the waiter before our main courses were served. Just as well as we were running out of plate space! That inconvenience aside we found the food very tasty, the staff attentive & friendly... More

I went there to dinner with some friends (tourists) that come to see us on a friday night and I had great expectations! One of the things that I didn't appreciate was the fact that the waiters that received us on the door told to one of my guest about his "dress code" (jeans and shirt). I didn't saw wrote... More

We took our concierge at his word that this place was fantastic. But fantastic doesn't do it justice. We had been traveling with mediocre food for a few days and then several days of pub food and wanted something totally different. We asked about a nice place to get something really, really good, and thought Italian sounded kind of crazy... More

We ate here our first night in Dublin, everyone was a little tired from the trip over and exploring the city all day but the dinner reenergized everyone. We had the table in the front window -- a table that has a small fish tank built into the table that would be entertaining for kids. Restaurant is small and staff... More

Good Italian food in Ireland, no way! It was not good, it was fantastic. The Chief here is exceptional and authenic Italiano. A must place to eat while visiting Dublin. Fun atmosphere. Call for reservation because the secret is getting out. That said, we enjoyed a glass of wine outside and took in the neighborhood while we waited. Great experience.

Went here on trip advisors reviews and boy was I delighted. From the moment we walked in the door to the second we walked out we were made to feel special as if part of the family... You can't buy that,, it just comes from respect and a willingness to serve the best way you can.. Excellent all round. The... More

Viktor from the Fitzwilliam Hotel tipped us off to this amazing restaurant and we had the best Italian food of our lives. We both ordered from the daily special menu and spent the next day debating whose dish was better. We finally agreed they were both equally outstanding. Fresh pasta, incredible sauces, a great bottle of wine, and melt-in-your-mouth tiramisu... More

Great small place in the very center of Dublin, was fully packed on Sunday night, so the booking is essential. We were a party of 4, incl. 1 child. Everything we had was truly delicious and very reasonably priced. The service was great as well. Enjoyed our visit very much!

We revisited recently with kids (8/6) who thankfully have an open palate. No issue bringing kids at 5pm on a sunday, stayed to 7pm and did not feel any discomfort with having the kids there as the restaurant filled up. They do not have a kids menu but they shared calamari to start which was amazing, shrimps and a special... More

If you are going to go Italian in Dublin this is the place to go! Everything is first rate and a great wine selection. Service is superior. But you need to book a table in advance. They go quick.
