Been here a few times, and honestly not sure why i went back again! Was a quite tuesday evening and got a seat straight away. Once seated no offer of a drink etc, and then a while later asked if we ready to order our food. Food was ordered and very quickly our starters came which were both wrong! They... More

Thank you for your comments. I have looked into thisand a new staff member served your table. Apologies for the lack of professional service and because of your review it has come to my attention that the waiter just doesn't have a good enough command of the language. He needs to shadow a more experienced waiter for the moment. Glad... More

I recently visited Dunne & Crescenzi and had one of the best fish dishes around. I almost always go straight for the specials board as I love the fresh pasta and risotto they do. The flavour you get with these dishes is so so good. On this visit I went for the hake and what a treat it was! A... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended Dunne and Crescenzi, and it did not disappoint! The food was fresh, tasty, and really delicious. The atmospher at the restaurant was rustic cozy and very welcoming. Our waiter was really nice and gave great recommendations for our vegetarian needs.

I've eaten here half a dozen times, and can only think of one meal that wasn't outstanding (but, it was good, just not as great as others). I almost always order one of the specials, which are generally yummy and fresh-tasting. Occasionally, I have had a glass of wine as well, and they've always been great (sometimes paired with the...

Had lunch last week with my old Mucker Lorcan in Dunne&Crescenzi. We both went for the pasta of the day which was seafood and hit the spot. There's nothing like fresh pasta! The service was good and very friendly. Its an atmospheric place, very like being in Italy. We washed it down with a great bottle of Sardinian White Wine... More

I can't say enough good things about this wonderful, friendly, cosy and atmospheric restaurant. It is a delight to obtain authentic Italian cuisine, friendly and efficient service. For my taste, D & C works wonderfully on every level. I'm now a regular for lunch and only wish that I could spare the time for the occasional dinner. The specials of... More

Delicious antipasti and authentic tasty mains. Limited specials board which meant the ingredients were fresh. Refreshing for the staff to be Italian as well, added to the ambience. Restaurant surrounded with floor to ceiling shelves stacked full of wine. The atmosphere was lovely. Lots of bustle but not so much that you couldn't have a conversation. Great restaurant, reasonably priced... More

Dunne & Crescenzi on South Frederick St is very centrally located, near the National Gallery of Ireland, Trinity College and Grafton Street. I was there for lunch this week, not having been for some time. Both I and my lunchtime companion were on a schedule and wondered whether service would be slow as the restaurant was pretty full. However, we... More
