I think it is absolutely the best restaurant in Dublin. The atmosphere is magical, the food is great and the restaurant is very quaint. I spent several evenings in the company of the staff and their joy and I always go back there when it happens. Do not miss it guys .... will remain in your heart ...

Great food and service. Hidden gem just off Temple Bar. On a nice evening/day it doesn't even feel like dining in Dublin. The evening I went it was very quiet, which is surprising considering how central it is. If you're looking for somewhere for great Italian food and very reasonable, definitely check this place out!

Found this Italian Restaurant advertised on the Good Food Dublin Map we picked up at City Hall and decided to give it a try this evening. It is down a few steps in the corner of the square and there are 2 rooms with authentic vaulted ceilings. The pre theatre, early bird, menu was good value at €18 for 2... More

Excellent food, charming atmosphere, good wine, pleasant wait staff. We dined here before the Musical Pub Crawl. Since we dined early in the evening we had the place almost to ourselves. Wait staff was attentive but allowed us to enjoy our dinner. Not the easiest location to find but keep going until you find it and you will be rewarded.

I really liked this place as soon as I walked in for the first time, stepping down into the restaurant you really feel like your getting away from the world outside. The food is very nice, well above average I'd say. I may have had slightly nicer italian food elsewhere, but as an overall experience this is still my favourite... More

On a recent visit to Dublin we were looking for an Italian restaurant that offered interesting vegetarian dishes - not just the usual pizza/pasta. Quite by chance we saw Il Baccaro and read the menu. It listed a fairly small number of dishes - usually a good sign - which included some favourites. The Risotto was excellent as was the... More

Love the style of this restaurant, and they do an amazing pistachio gnocchi! Service very slow but we went for lunch and were a large table and I think it was just the one guy. Had quite a few people outside having coffees so he had quite a bit to do.

I have been told that I have an ability to find a good restaurant. This place met my criteria, in a good area but not on the main street, interested décor and an even more interesting menu. We arrived without reservation and luckily got our choice of seat, opting to sit outside on a very small entrance patio a flight... More
