The food at Dunne and Crescenzi is Italian comfort food at its best, with strong and delicious taste profiles. The artisanal salami plate is a must, and the wine selection is impressive. Above all the service is warm and welcoming. My husband and I will return next time we are in Dublin!

A group of friends met up for lunch this week and sampled some yummy treats in this restaurant. We intend to return and repeat the experience next month.

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Grafton Street and just get some brunch, come here. Coffees' are perfect and the brunch items are gorgeous - we have had the paninis and eggs on toast variants and have really enjoyed. Very good value, very friendly service and very relaxed.

My wife and I stopped in without a reservation. The establishment was busy but they found a table for us. Service was good and the meals were top notch. Well worth the walk from our hotel.

I went for dinner here before going to the theatre. We were seated at an excellent table and the service was top class. The food was delicious and was proper Italian food. I can't find one fault with the whole experience. Id highly recommend this restaurant

We ate here last night on the recommendation of my sister. Service is appalling to say the least. Priority is given to drinks not to food. This place is a glorified wine bar not a restaurant. We ordered drinks and only one member of our party had alcohol. Over the course of 2 hours not once did anyone ask us... More

So we literally just ate at Dunne and Crescenzi... We were expecting to be impressed but unfortunately it was average. We shared the extreme bruschetta which was very basic ...not a lot of flavour really. I had the gnocchi which I had read a review about and unfortunately it was really rubbery... The ragu was nice but pasta just not... More

I celebrated my last evening (and birthday) in Ireland by going to Dunne & Crescenzi for dinner. After over a week of eating at Irish pubs, I had my fill of fish & chips, steak and potatoes. I wanted something different and this delivered! The restaurant was packed and we had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated but... More

We really do not know how this restaurant can get so good review. The service is not very professional and the food is average. I have ordered “Paccheri “ and they brought me “ Calamarata” ( I am Italian I know the difference) without said a word. Actually we would not recommend this place : overpriced and overestimated.

What a great restaurant. The salmon and goat cheese starter was the tastiest salmon dish I have ever had. The truffle ravioli was different and so tasty. Service was excellent with a friendly and efficient waiter. We had a set menu dinner with a wonderful selection plus extra offerings on the black board. Nice wine too. Can highly recommend.
