The place is tiny but it serves the real Italian treasure: affettati (Salame, prosciutto, mortadella, and other less known gems of Italy) with cheese and decent wine or Spritz. Although the quality is not the same level of excellence compared to what you can find in Italy for the same price, it is a very enjoyable meal indeed and a... More

An Italian Café/Restaurant run by Italians, serving food from the Emilia region. I LOVE this place. The staff are so friendly and the atmosphere is great. The food, wine and coffee are excellent and it is, in my opinion, the closest thing to an authentic Italian experience that I have come across in Dublin. I HIGHLY recommend Taste of Emilia... More

nice place for a dinner....i took a bruschettona margherita 2 times in a week....simple dish but with an incredible italian's flavour.....the only negative note is the staff in the restaurant because IMO they are not polite with the customers as they should be. recommended

The Italian experience at 360 degrees! The staff is friendly and it feels like home, the food is the best Italian quality you can find in Dublin and the wine is simply delicious! Maybe a bit expensive, but well worth it! Lovely outdoor seating and authentic espresso coffee :)

Just right for a rainy evening in Dublin - hearty and inexpensive plate that looked beautiful. Incredibly nice Italian immigrants are doing a great job here!

Taste of Emilia is located across the road from the old Woollen Mills (which has now been converted into a restaurant) and right by the Ha'penny Bridge. It was a rainy August evening and H and I just wanted something light before we headed home after some shopping. It's a small space and most of the tables were reserved, but... More

Had a nice leisurely lunch while we were in Dublin a couple of days ago. Service was a bit slow but didn't really matter as we weren't in a hurry. Besides which, it was worth the wait. My husband and I had paninis made with good ingredients. Would definitely recommend it for lunch.

So much fun. When you're hungry and need real relaxation, this little deli restaurant works magic on your soul. Fabulous fresh cuts of Italian cured hams. Great cheese and good wine. Warm caring staff. Good price. Happy ending!

I was in Dublin on a very short visit to friends celebrating my birthday. As we have done before we visited Taste of Emilia for some Bruschetta and prosecco, which we were enjoying in the busy, friendly environment. Unfortunately the whole experience was soured as my bag was stolen, from between my feet, by some-one I didn't even see! The... More
