This restaurant is as good, if not better, than what one can get in Italy. Proper Italian food cooked perfectly. I had the special for my starter, which was burrata with figs and Iberian ham, so obviously not Italian ham, though I wasn't complaining because I prefer Spanish ham anyway, it was lovely and tasted fresh which is great.

I am impressed with this restaurant, went back the following week not something we often do and am looking forward to visiting again. It is top of my list for Italian food in Dublin at the moment. The menu was well thought out with something to suit all tastes, the food really well prepared and presented and most important of... More

I came here with my family expecting a bog standard Italian meal that was the same as many others but was completely taken away by the incredible food, service and atmosphere of the restaurant. From the outside it doesnt look like anything special but as soon as you walk in youre hit with this comforting snuggly atmosphere with all of... More

I'm wary of five star reviews, particularly for a restaurant which was a regular haunt of mine almost 20 years ago. But that was under different ownership and management and many things have changed since then. Il Vicoletto remains where it has always been, as the name suggests, in the lane. It bustles with activity. It's noisy, but not obtrusively... More

If you like traditional Italian food, and like advice on which wine to drink with it, then this place will be perfect for you. The concierge at the Fitzwilliam recommended this restaurant, and as it is tucked away on Crow Street, away from the passing tourist trade, it is a bit of a hidden gem. You could easily pass it...

This is a tiny little restaurant in Temple Bar but so worth trying to get a reservation.. The service was great, the wine was amazing and the pasta was spectacular. I was so impressed that we tried to go back a second time...but could not get a table. Anyone who enjoys homemade pasta should make a stop here. Such a... More

My vegetarian husband and I ate here twice during a five day trip to Dublin. The first time was early on a Sunday night. We arrived without a reservation and were told we could eat if we promised to be done in an hour since the table was booked for that time. The restaurant is very small (maybe 12 tables),... More

We ate here in April 2014 and cannot speak more highly of the restaurant, the staff and the food. From the moment we walked in we were treated like royalty. The staff are truly wonderful and the food is the best we have ever tasted, including in Italy itself. Have recommended it to everyone we know travelling to and living... More
