I stayed in Ballsbridge recently with my parents, and this restaurant was in easy walking distance of many hotels in Ballsbridge. The restaurant looks small from the outside, but this is deceiving - although the inside is narrow in spaces, so on busy nights the seating may be quite close to other diners. Luckily it wasn't so busy when we... More

Went there on a Wednesday night and had the dinner special for €16.90. Lasagne, salad, a beer and tiramisu. It was really good value

Lovely little restaurant, a little expensive but the food is beautiful and the staff are really helpful and friendly. Lovely atmosphere. I've been coming here twice a year with work for the past 5+ years and I would definitely recommend it.

MY girlfriend and I ate at Al Boschetto on 23/7/14.The food was quite good if a little expensive.The house white white wasn't good at all and we ended up not drinking it.The reason I am leaving such a poor review was because the restaurant sneakily added a €9.60 service charge even though there was only two of us.I hadn't properly...

Delightful evening.We started with the bruschetta--perfectly served and garnished. The gnocchi was great and we were surprised to even find a vegan offering--sauteed tofu with vegetables, which our son had. We dined al fresco on the patio, which made the meal even better. Our server, from Italy, was efficient and gracious.

Menu was well priced but not extensive, could have done more to have more authentic dishes to the list of dishes but what we had was good.

We stopped here on a whim after discovering that the restaurant we had hoped to enjoy ( just across the street) had suddenly closed. Al Boschetto was a treat! I had the penne arribiatta and it was PERFECT. My mom had the lasagna and raves as well. We were very pleased!

This spot was just OK... the food, the service, the facility. Actually, the service was poor. We had to continuously search out our waiter. At the end we had to get up and start to leave in order to get our bill. The food was blah and reminded me of a frozen dinner. If you want excellent Italian food and... More

I do like my pizza and Al Boschetto did a fine job. I was having a quick meal, so didn't linger to take in more of the menu, but I will return. Vegetariana Pizza was well cooked and the ingredients were fresh, which is not often the case in many restaurants. Restauarant is upper middle in the sector going by... More
