We have been once in this restaurant before and it is a convenient venue when you go to Olympia theatre. Food is authentic but seating is very tight as it is a very small room. I have booked a table for two a week in advance for 6 pm promising to leave the table before 8 pm as we were... More

In the Temple Bar district, this restaurant tucked on a little side street was walking distance from our Westin Hotel location. Understandably, most people want authentic Irish food when vacationing in Dublin. Well, good food is good food wherever you are and these folks cook up some fine italian fare. Make a reservation, as this restaurant has a very limited... More

I try to get to this superb restaurant at least once a quarter - usually when attending a gig at The Olympia. Always a friendly, welcoming staff to greet you (strongly recommend reservations). Just simply good authentic Italian food with an extensive wine list. They always have lovely specials on offer to choose from, too. Class, attentive service, as well.... More

Very good Italian food, all food was really great, the service was also very warm and good like at home of Italian family. The only disadvantage was that the restaurant was too hot may be because it was very full.

Authentic Italian food in Dublin located in the Temple Bar area. Food and service were great but we were mislead when asked if we wanted sparkling water... we said no and asked for still. Mistake! We got a bottle of still water which was almost £5! If you don't want a bottle of water ask for tap water... Other than... More

The staff are great here, they make you feel very welcome and seem to know and be passionate about the food on offer. This is a very small restaurant and you don't get much room but that is also part of the charm and it is very obviously popular as there was a constant stream of locals at the door.... More

We were visiting Dublin and dined here based on previous recommendations - it didn't disappoint and far surpassed expectations. The food and service were both outstanding and the vibe from the restaurant is electric. Located in the popular Temple Bar area, highly recommend a reservation or you will have a bit of a wait. We especially loved the carpaccio starter.

Not often you visit a restaurant for a second time and find it as good as it was the first time. But Vicoletto surprised me by being even better on the revisit. The service was great with a personal touch to it. The owner even remebered me and my country of origin from that first visit 3 months ago. The... More
