I first visited Il Vicoletto with my family to celebrate a siblings birthday and was delighted with the experience, great food and even better service! unfortunatley this was not the case on my most recent visit- I returned last night with friends who were visiting for the weekend expecting a repeat of my first visit. Sadly this was not the... More

My husband and I were entertaining a well travelled friend visiting from the UK. I love Italian food and heard this restaurant was very good. It was very busy when we arrived and our table was hemmed into a corner from which it was difficult to move without bothering other customers. All would have been forgiven if the food was... More

I visited Il Vilcoetto for the first time this week on a friends recommendation - it didn't disappoint. Its a small restaurant on a side st in Temple Bar. Its cosey and quaint. They offer a 3 coure meal for €25. I had calamari, fish of the day (seabass) and tiramisu. Each course was lovely. Service was very friendly &... More

I have been to this restaurant 3 or 4 times now and each time it does not disappoint. The food is really authentic and the setting and atmosphere is lovely. The service is good and the staff are very friendly, the place is small so ring ahead if you want to secure yourself a table and you should be okay.

Went there with friends. I ordered a steak and it was overcooked. I gave it back to the staff but then they asked me to check it with my partner if they had mixed but they did not. They went away with it again and then another came back with the steak and did not believe so and told them... More

My brother and I randomly popped into this restaurant after reading great reviews on google and also as it was labeled 'the best Italian in Dublin' by a few people. We were delighted to get a table for two at the last minute. The restaurant is small and we were very close to the diners beside us, somewhat too close.... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by a colleague and it was a nice experience. Great and authentic Italian cuisine at a very reasonable price. Excellent wines. The only disadvantage is that the restaurant is really very small and tables are very close to each other. Once you sit, it is difficult to move. The food and the friendly service... More

We truly enjoyed our dining experience at Il Vicoletto. The staff were very friendly and the quality of the food, wine and service were outstanding. When my wife and I saw our bill, we were pleasantly surprised to see fair a price it was. We had 2 appetizers, 2 main dishes, 1 glass of wine and shared a dessert for... More

We six seniors visit Dublin every autumn for the Craig! The service has always been excellent in previous visits, sadly the standards have now slipped. Our waiter gave us small glasses for the red wine, even after our request he failed to bring us larger glasses which many others were using. His attitude changed when we decided not to order...
