Nice place

In the beginning i was pissed due to the 25 min waiting.. But the stuff was very friendly, apologised ten times during the meal for the delay. Very good risotto, excellent pizza, nice atmosphere. Maybe a Little bit overpriced, but i would deffinitely return.

Ravioli is my favorite dish in the world and in this restaurant they prepared them perfectly... As if you were in Italy! We spent a weekend in Dublin and found this restaurant just by chance, I would definitely recommend you go and try it! The staff is super polite and nice.

We stumbled across this place wandering through Temple Bar on a busy Saturday night looking for a quick bite to eat. The restaurant is small and the tables are close together but that made for a good atmosphere. The wine menu consisted of only 2 whites and 2 reds but we were very happy with our choice and the price... More

Mains came whilst we were still having our starters ! I had a pizza with an egg on it and my girlfriend had the four cheese pizza... More

We found this little restaurant after wandering round the noisy Temple Bar and not liking the look of anywhere and we really please with our choice. We had a couple of starters and two different chicken main courses and enjoyed our food. My husband was a bit disappointed there wasn't any Guiness on offer and just 2 choices of larger... More

We would not recomend this restaurant it's over priced and poor quality. The staff were friendly but this did not make up for the poor food. Our group ordered a variety of pizzas and pastas everything was bland completely tasteless. The garlic bread was basically cheese on toast, the fresh basil on the pizza was pesto, and the £23 bottle... More

Maybe we just visited on an off day or something but after our experience at this restaurant I couldn't possibly recommend it to anybody. For starters, our server couldn't have possibly been less interested in her job and came off as rude and condescending. My girlfriend asked a question about one of the items on the menu and I visibly... More

We tried to get into many other places that were super busy and loud, this restaurant had many customers, but was quiet too. The service was friendly and our meals came out quickly, which were delicious. We'd eat here again.

I don't see how so many people complain about this restaurant when it's fantastic! The staff are friendly, the food is delicious and quick, and the seating was quirky and interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and will be back!
