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

I visited this restaurant with 3 friends. The decor is great and very authentic. The early bird menu was excellent value with good choices. For starters we had bruscetta, antipasta and rocket/mozzarella salad - all were good. For main courses we had the chicken filled with spinach in cheese sause and the bolognese and again, all were good. We have... More

My husband and I spent Out last night in Ireland having a delicious dinner at Il Baccaro. The whole sea bass was exceptional! Can't wait to go back.

Me and my two friends were the only people in the place and we struggled to get our drink order taken. That being said the brochette sampler and seafood pasta were the bomb.com. Cool cave-like atmosphere.

For me this restaurant is the highlight of any trip to Dublin (I'm Irish but live up in Sligo). It's tucked away in the corner of meeting house square giving a feeling of being a little bit removed from the madness of Temple Bar. Normally I visit with my wife and we both love the gorgeous food. I've been to... More

We arrived 15 minutes late and were warmly received, we were led to wonderfully atmospheric brick vaulted room of which we were given a large table with ample circulation space. From the extensive menu the group ate a selection of chicken, pasta and steaks. All were delighted with the quality of the materials used which were clearly all fresh and... More

After visiting friends in Dublin last weekend (Saturday) my wife decided that the four of us go to Il Baccaro after the great experience we had there last year. We were greeted by a lovely Italian PR girl on the street who brought us with a smile to the restaurant which is situated in Temple Bar Meeting House Square. Were... More

Surprisingly elegant and delicate flavors. Superb Italian wine list. Excellent cocktails. Personal and attentive service. It was recommended by people we met at an airport on another trip, and they were right. Others we have recommended it to, have already told us how they liked it. A great break from Irish food.
