Excellent food although the portions of pasta are not huge. The menu is nicely varied- pizza and pasta both come recommended. Well worth a visit.

I have eaten here twice in the past week and it has been excellent on both occasions. This evenings dinner on a lovely evening in Dublin was particularly good and my own dish of ravioli in a butter sauce with shaved truffles was an absolutely stand-out dish by any standards. it was very refined and delicate. Starter was a very... More

We recently moved into this area and eventually decided to give this restaurant a try. We passed it so many times and it always looks busy. We were delighted we did. Great food. Lovely staff. We felt the food was very authentic. We shared a giant portion of prawns to start. Then I had a pizza and he had pasta.... More

maybe its more of a spot for evening meals - and I'd like to try that sometime. But they seemed very disinterested in us going in for breakfast. Loud rock music was blaring on the radio and the lady in charge was having a loud conversation with a tradesman. The daily papers were provided, which was nice, but breakfast options... More

I was walking around Dublin (spending most of my time staring at my phone GPS so I didn't get lost) and noticed this restaurant had some outside seating available, so I decided to get lunch. I love Italian (which is mostly what I ate during my entire vacation) and this place was delicious. I had a pizza and it was... More

This is a lovely and cozy restaurant, a bit small, but I really loved the food, and the ambiance, and the personnel was very friendly. I have been there once before and I will certainly go again soon!

Considering my consistently poor experiences, I am somewhat suprised how good the reviews are for Mama Mia. I live very close to the restaurant and considering the fact that if you want to eat in the immediate locality it's this or Mizzoni's, Mamma Mia's should win easily. However, after eating at this restaurant 6 or so times, Mizzoni's as dreadful... More

A friend introduced me to this small but perfectly formed Italian restaurant and now I feel like I am a member of a select club as this place is a little gem. The service is immediate and friendly and the food was fantastic and very cheap. The only thing that will disappoint is if you don't book and turn up... More
