This place is just delicious. My boyfriend and I visited here the last time we were in Dublin, and we visited again for the third time this weekend and once again it did not disappoint. Prices are ok and the food is hot and very tasty. The only down side really is that it is small and cramped, and you... More

I came here recently for a quick bite to eat at night on a girls weekend. We had to wait around ten minutes for the table, but that wasn't a problem. The layout is quite small and there wasn't an awful lot of space. The food was lovely, and definitely filled us up and isn't too badly priced either. Perhaps... More

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
