A little bit of Italy yards from the Ha'penny bridge

Caught up with an old friend who's Italian flat mate recommended ToE. It is small only about 10 table and it was constantly busy. I would say it's an all day menu of anti pasta/deli, platters to share (meats, cheese), panini, bruschetta, all freshly made. Very filling. Wine was great. I felt I was... read more

Visited mid afternoon on a Wednesday, its an Italian restaurant that doesn't serve pizza or pasta... its aimed more at meats/cheeses and wine... Go for one of the shared platters.. Amazing!

Everything here is 100% authentic from Emilia Romagnia. Best Bruschette in Dublin. Will come back for sure. Italian spirit in Ireland.

We've been coming here several times a week since we have moved next door. The staff is always so welcoming and smiley and polite and chatty, it feels like you are going to visit your family. All the hot drinks are absolutely delicious - the hot chocolate is thick, dark, a drink of the gods... the coffees are all so... More

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!
