“Lots of attention, but high prices, little space, little food!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2011

First and last visit to this small, dark crowded restaurant. Service was friendly throughout evening but constant interruptions to fill water and wine glasses, to hand each other plates of food up and down the table as service was limited to one side – we were a medium sized group and had been put ‘’up against the wall’. Starter portions were small and served in little ramekin dishes. Main courses were overcooked and plated to appear larger e.g. sole fillets per menu was actually one fillet divided in two. Desserts portions were also small and served in glass tumblers. Quality of each course was disappointing. And an additional Service Charge of 12.5% is added for groups >5. To join or leave the table, one had to climb over or around chairs and skirting boards. We left the restaurant feeling cramped, hungry, bruised and overcharged!!

“Fab & Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2010

Went there for a meal with the girls. Had a lovely evening. We were asked to be out by a certain time but when a group of girls get together that haven't seen each other in like forever, it is difficult to tear yourself away. We didn't leave the restaurant when we were asked but the staff were still lovely to us. Very polite & patient and lovely atmosphere with great food. Had a really good night. Definitely go back again.

“Ever so slightly above average italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2010

My abiding memory of this place is just how cramped it is and quite dark as it is in a basement. Other than that what's on offer here is quite average fare. However, it does have a great location right on Stephne's Green. Not a bad choice perhaps for a lunch if they have a special offer on but I won't be rushing back.

“Outstanding service, fantastic atmosphere...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2010 via mobile

Outstanding service, fantastic atmosphere and delicious food.

The waiters and waitresses are so polite and so attentive to food allergies. We told the person taking our order about my nut allergy and we had 2 other waiting staff who had been informed.

Service everytime is fantastc and so is the food. We've eaten twice from the a la carte menu (great choice and reasonably priced) and last night from the early bird menu (2 courses €20).

Highly recommend this restaurant. Fancy too for a celebration. Looking forward to going back.
