'Simply Amazing!'

Totally unassuming & perhaps a little off the main drag but worth it by an Italian mile! Superb service accompanied by superb authentic Italian grub & a bottle of Chianti of course!

I cannot comment on the food, because we had to leave the restaurant before we even decided to order. This was due to the fact that our waiter was rude and arrogant with us. He felt that he needed to lecture us on what a true Italian pizza was based off of a question that I had for him. Having... More

Stopped for lunch at this tucked away small and simple place. Sat outside under electric heaters. Blankets available! Tiny inside with maybe 4-6 tables. Good rustic style pizza and pasta. Good house wines. Basic but basically very good. Cheery helpful waitress.

Our friends took us to Mamma Mia when we visited Dublin this week. The special occasion was a 40th birthday, and our night did not disappoint. Excellent service and lovely atmosphere. The cake and candle were an added surprise. We plan to return, and will recommend to all friends and family who come to Dublin.

Our third visit to this gem was the best yet. Sublime in every respect! We cannot wait to return to enjoy the dishes we have yet to experience.

This is a great little neighbourhood cafe, small cosy and friendly inside, I've been 4 or 5 times now, for lunch and evening and the food is always good. This is authentic Italian food and probably one of my favourite pizzas in town.

We went there during lunch time and we were alone. We were not worried about the quality because the place had good reviews. The food is delicious and it's not expensive! Also the team working there is friendly

Picked up a take away pizza from this place. Would never have occurred to me to check the pizza before going home. They gave me a half pizza ( which I have uploaded s photo of) which was also slightly over cooked. It also only treated average at best. Rang to complain and staff not particularly apologetic.

ok, I am a little obsessed with Italian food as this is not the first review of an Italian restaurant in Dublin that I write. I found this place by chance going to Holles street maternity with my pregnant partner. We were the only one there for breakfast and the cook was very nice to us. The eggs and sausages... More
