We decided it was going to rain & ducked into a welcoming looking Italian Restaurant. How lucky we were. The Menu hit the spot with a variety of Pasta & Pizza dishes, just the right size for lunchtime. We thoroughly enjoyed the food & quite forgot the rain.

Went here for lunch. For Dublin, never mind somewhere situated in Temple Bar, this place had a great lunch menu for a great price. My boyfriend who is a protein fiend was particularly pleased with his chicken wings started as he got quite a lot, compared to most other restaurants you go to. He even got a wee ball of... More

A small italian restaurant at Temple. A reduced menu, but with a great tasty! Vegetable soup, Caprese Salad, Spaguetti Carbonara and Diavolo and a Sausage Pizza. Great deal. Totally worthy

Went in because we liked the look from outside. From the start the staff were welcoming and friendly, the food was fantastic and you can watch the chef at work, all at an affordable price

We'd had enough Guinness and loud, crowded pubs in Temple Bar on the afternoon preceding an important football (soccer) match. We were hungry, and this little restaurant caught our eye. So glad it did! Excellent service, and a delicious, fresh pizza in a pretty setting. HIghly recommend and would seek out on a future trip.

Delicious spaghetti Carbonara - and my wife loved the Bolognese. We arrived tired and hungry after a hard day tramping round the wonderful sights (and sites) of Dublin. This was just what we needed - fresh cooked pasta, tasty sauces, very quick service, and some very good wine from their small but perfect wine list.
