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!

My son and I went after a major rugby match. The place was almost full. They fitted us in and the service and food was excellent. My son left his favourite hat alas. However he went back a couple of days later and there it was. They remembered him.. How good was that! Go

A waitress was stood on the street outside this restaurant with menus. The menu was small but reasonably prices, especially for dublin! She asked us what size table we wanted and showed us into the restaurant. The restaurant is very dated and cramped.

Stay clear of this place. Don't really see how they can say they're an Italian Restaurant! The food is terrible and the service is also. The waitresses and waiters did not understand simple requests such as 'can we have some cutlery?'. The meals that arrived did not match the description on the menu. waste of money.

This place is as fake Italian as you can get. The service is horrid. And when I complained they refused to remake and I refused to pay for food I didn't eat because it was so bad on the first bite..they called they police. The staff there are rude. But more over the food is just not worth it. The... More
