Real Italian!

Very authentic food and an enormous selection Italian wines. This was our third visit so we knew to make reservations. While a large restaurant, it fills quite early. (before 7 PM) good place to practice your Italian as most of the wait staff seems to be from Italy.

Recently while in Dublin we were searching for a very good Italian restaurant and found it through advice from a friend who resides in Dublin. When we arrived at Dunne and Crescenzi we were told that they were fully booked but offered to set a dinner table outside. We had amazing service and wonderful platters of antipasta, bread and mains... More

Everything was amazing. The food taste was the best Italian I have ever tasted in Dublin. The service from federica was amazing even when we was in the terrace. I really recommended this place. Carlos Meyer

This place has an excellent reputation and some good dishes, but service seemed untuned and the food was just OK. Maybe you'll like it more. Others have.

Great restaurant - we will be... More

Last evening we had a most enjoyable family dinner out in the Dunne & Crescenzi Restaurant in South Frederick Street. This is always a very buzzy place with a good atmosphere and very friendly staff. We were given a lovely table at the window and then we perused their wide, varied and very mouth watering menu and were also advised... More
