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.

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.
