Stubbled across this place by chance and what a great restaurant it is. Such amazing atmosphere with the exposed brickwork. Food was great, all of us really enjoyed what we ordered - especially the garlic and chilli broccoli side dish and the Panna Cotta! The service was good too and I highly recommend this place.

I ate here for the first time with a friend of mine last week. The restaurant is lovely with a really good atmosphere and it feels very authentic Italian. We only got main courses and happened to get the same dish which was very tasty (the chicken dish). I ordered a portion of bread and as my friend is coeliac,... More

Lovely food and nice restaurant. My friends and I had a meal here last Friday. We did struggle to find the place, it is a bit hidden away but the food was worth it. Not the best location but lovely food and friendly staff. Nice decor.

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.
