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.

The walls of this restaurant are groaning with awards but look closely and most of them are from some time ago. We were eating here as a family and despite the stack of highchairs in the window I didn't think it was particularly family-friendly (no kids menu for example). Service was patchy. After I had ordered I spotted the daily... More

Visited the restaurant last sat night. Ordered the chicken and what I got was a dry tasteless bit of chicken and a very small portion of potatoes .. It was like a starter portion over priced and poor quality.

My colleagues and I eat regularly here for lunch and are never disappointed. Staff are wonderful. Food is superb from simple Panini to pasta dishes and the bruschetta is the best ever. I crave their tiramisu and best not forget the really good coffee.

This is my favorite Italian resturant in Ireland. I moved here about a year ago and really missed going out for a good Italian dinner until some friends mentioned Dunne & Crescenzi. The pasta is always al dente,the mozzarella really good quality and I love the way they leave the olive oil and balsamic on the table. D&C are very... More

I have visited this restruant several times. The quality of the food and the service have always been consistent and without fault. The menu will suit all tastes and is a culinary delight. Portions are not massive however you will not be left feeling hungry. Spoilt for choice with the wine list. I have also visited the little sister in... More

If you're looking for an lively, authentic Italian restaurant in Dublin; Dunne and Crescenzi fits the bill! The bruschetta and paninia are special, while the pasta and gnocchi are also favourites. Don't miss this!

On Thursday 14th August a friend and I visited Dunne and Crescenzi for a late lunch. We had been there for lunch on a number of occasions previously, Restaurants was busy and had a nice atmosphere. We ordered wine and decided to share a crostini plate. My friend ordered Paccheri Gamberi and I ordered Petto Di Pollo from a limited... More

We have tried a lot of the Irish cuisine on our trip through Ireland, both regular and more refined. I kind of hoped we could say in the end that our best meal was in an Irish restaurant. Alas... Dunne and Crescenzi steals the honour. We had dinner here on our first night in Dublin, but were a bit hurried... More

So disappointed with lunch today. Beef ravioli was so scant on breakfast plate that I asked if it was a starter portion. Waitress advised that it was indeed a main course."Not enough to feed a bird" replied my friend. The price was extortionate for such a meager amount of food. Will never go back.

Perhaps you have mistaken the restaurant since we do not have beef ravioli on the menu and certainly did not on the 11th August and our plates are 24cm wide. More
