Excellent range of tasty dishes on the menu and a particularly good selection of Italian wines. Service was good and the atmosphere warm and cozy. One to return to!

We went for a business dinner last Saturday. I found the restaurant conviniently located in central Dublin. The decoration, lightening, room temperature made it a cozy place to have dinner. The table was correctly arranged. The food was nice. Starters nicely presented and generous (e.g. smoked salmon). Staff very friendly and professional. Maybe expecting a bit more of the dessert...

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Dublin and a recent visit was as enjoyable as ever. Fortunately I had booked in advance as they were turning customers away from the door when I arrived. The food was as good as ever and the service very pleasant though slower than usual given the busy lunchtime. We had an antipasto... More

Had just a main course that had risotto. I was so disappointed with the risotto as it had no flavour and was served with ox tail which was a cheap piece of meat that I use to make soup stock. It was away over priced. I won't be going back

I think you must be mistaken, we do not have and never have had risotto with oxtail on our menu, Our sister restaurant does not and never has had oxtail risotto on the menu. Perhaps you ate somewhere else? More

This is a Dublin gem. Just had a great family reunion dinner there, we were a bit raucous as family gathering scan get (hopefully not too bad!) and the server was most patient. Great food, great prices, great ambience, great location. Highly recommended.

Oh how lucky we were to get a table on Saturday night. The ambience in this chain of restaurants is pure Italian and SO enhances the whole experience. Both the food and wine were amazing. Their ice cream is SO good that I eat it (don't eat ice cream anywhere else) . Thank you xx
