After a long day round the shops, we just wanted something handy and tasty and this little Italian at Ballsbridge hit the spot. Restaurant was busy for a Monday evening, plenty of families and despite this, the service was excellent. Ordered bruschetta to share for starter, perfect and a nice kick of garlic on the ciabatta. My wife had the... More

During a family trip to the Dublin horse show my family popped along to this restaurant for dinner. Our party included fussy eaters and a one year old. Food was prepared to accommodate all. The kitchen even organised a half portion not on the children's menu for my young son without the slightest hint of trouble. The staff were engaging... More

Lovely tasty food, nice service, nice environment. We walked in on a Monday evening without a reservation, but were easily accommodated. Service was very friendly but leisurely. My husband had calamari to start which was a very generous portion and he reported it to be very good. The goats cheese and polenta was very good, polenta can be a touch... More

Food poor, not sure how they all the good ratings!!!!! Had the early bird. Had Lasagna and chips, Lasanga was tasteless, seriously if you cant get a good Lasanga in an Italian there is something wrong. Had Profiteroles for dessert. Again poor, chewy and nothing like Profiteroles. We also got a complimentary dessert to try on the side. Some sort... More

Popped in on a sunday evening with three colleagues. Very pleased with the level of service. Staff were attentive and were willing to arrange for the kitchen to accomodate specific dietary requirements. Food was very good. Presentation was perhaps not of the highest level but portions were generous and quality of ingredients high - arguably the more important aspects! We... More
