This Is a small, sleek space in a lovely neighborhood which serves excellent fresh Italian pasta and traditional dishes. Their pizza is thin crusted and delicious and the special fresh pasta dish with prawns was beautiful. The waitress was from Italy and friendly and warm which added to the ambience.

On arrival you get a great welcome and shown to your table. There was a group of 10 of us but this was not an issue. Drinks were served and food order taken which started to arrive very promptly. There is a good mix of Italian dishes and Pizzas to choose from. This was the 2nd time in a month... More

I had been travelling in Spain and was craving some decent food that wasn't tapas. I read the reviews and thought I would try this out given I was staying nearby. I had a capsicum soup with bread which was very tasty (and I'm not a big fan of capsicum) and then a mushroom risotto for main which was well... More

We really liked the ambiance of this place. I had called ahead for reservations (not necessary) and the hostess remembered me. She and the server were VERY attentive and so cordial. This is very close to the American Embassy, but away from the tourist area, so there are mostly locals and a young adult crowd. We had great pasta dishes... More

We ate here looking for pasta as we were running the marathon in dublin, and what a surprise. Don't be fooled by the small frontage like a small sweet shop, the restaurant extends into 5-6 various seating areas, including upstairs and smaller alcoves. More importantly the food! We had a good mix of dishes between our group, including lasagne which... More

We called to this restaurant over the weekend. Much larger on the inside than it appears from the outside. Our two starters were lovely. Good sized proportions. I had a Focacccine bread dip and my husband had the chicken wings. Both very tasty. The only negative was that there was no finger bowl provided with the messy chicken wings, even... More
