Not too bad

Are here on a night out had brochettes to start great choice. I then had the special pasta, chicken with wild mushrooms. Pasta was a little underdone but not worth handing it back. The sauce was very tasty. My wife had a pizza calzone it was huge. No way one person could finish on their own. I... read more

I am a regular at Al Boschetto. It has decent Italian food, always good value and generally good food. Some dishes are worth a special mention - I love the lasagne for a very hearty meal, and the tricolor salad as starter is delicious. It's a friendly place, good service and decent house wine. A good place to go for... More

This is a deceptively large restaurant given the size of the frontage. The food is of excellent quality, especially from the specials menu on the board outside (just a bit more unusual than on a normal Italian menu) and all at a very reasonable price!

This restaurant was recommended by the b+b we stayed in. From the outside this restaurant looks small, but you are greeted inside by friendly staff and a spotless restaurant. Food was really nice and reasonable, with a good selection available. Would definitely recommend and would go here again.

I recently enjoyed a lovely meal here with a few friends. The service was excellent and very friendly. The restaurant was cosy and warm on a cold wet evening in a Dublin. The food was basic simple Italian but good value for money and I enjoyed every bit.

Found this fantastic restaurant by accident while walking on a very cold January night looking for somewhere to eat. Staff were very welcoming and friendly - they went out of their way to accommodate us even though we had not booked a table. Restaurant was cosy and warm. Food was exceptional and wine was excellent. Very reasonable

Let there be no mistake this is a nice restaurant and staff very pleasant and I use it professionally and personally 2-3 times per month. I brought two staff members for a meal and one of them was not drinking alcohol and ordered water with some cordial. And the end of the mail we four ourselves charged €5 for the... More
