5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We walked in about 15 minutes before closing and asked if it was too late to be seated. They assured us it was not and promptly cleared a lovely table for us. Our server was more than accommodating in explaining the specials, making suggestions, talking wine with us. Never did we feel rushed to finish because it was so late.... More

It has been a while since I went to this restaurant again - last time was couple years ago. Thankfully, the quality is still there, and they seem to have also refurbished the interior, which is is even better. They can make even a simple dish taste wonderful, I really like this place: typically Italian restaurant are all too often... More

I visited the Dawson street branch of this chain as I had heard so many great things about it from family. Staff were friendly enough on arrival, some slight confusion upon seating but nothing too bad. Food & drinks ordered the waitress offered some bread and olives which we gladly accepted. Had we known we were to be charged we... More

I actually don't feel it's ''poor'' but just below average. I've been here before and was happy enough but we went recently and I don't know what the issue was. It was a Tuesday night at 7:30 and packed to the brim so I appreciate that they were busy but getting a waiter's attention was nearly impossible. I ordered off... More

I have to say, this is probably one of the best Italian restaurants I have been to (and I've been to a few!). The service was fantastically cheerful, friendly and efficient. The food was simply delightful - and they catered perfectly for my gluten intolerant friend. We found the prices to be incredibly reasonable for the location (and for Dublin... More

We had was was perhaps one of our best meals in Dublin at Carluccio's. As you enter there are pastries on display, and the small of the pastries and the food is wonderful. Service was quick and the waitstaff seem to move things along since they are relatively small but busy. The salads were excellent, and the carbonara was also... More

The early bird menu is good value, decent portions and the food is very tasty. The friendly Italian waiters are a highlight. Garlic cheesy bread is a must

Would give 0 stars if could because we didn't actually get served. I have a romance with carluccios which has lasted for over 10 years but this one puts them to shame. We were the first ones seated in the top of the restaurant and then the server sat about 5 more tables and went to them first for drinks... More

The menu is really broad and there is something for everyone, and although it can be expensive for some things, it is really worth it! Great for couples, families, and even larger groups. The...
