I've been here many times for coffee and even a breakfast croissant, but never for lunch before. The menu is a bit all over the place in its order, but there is a lot of choice. I settled on the salmon lasagne, which was delicious - great mix of flavours, and not too heavy - just right for lunch. I... More

Dropped in for an early dinner and were delighted by the quality of the food and the service. Charming restaurant just a stones throw from Dawson Street St and Grafton Street in Dublin South City Centre

This is a very nice Italian restaurant. The service was good and not rushed, even thought the place was pretty busy. My dinner was excellent, although it was a little different than described on the menu. Our waiter was great at suggesting complimenting wines for us.

I popped in for a late lunch snack. The place was very busy even at 2:30pm. I really enjoyed a plate of antipasti with a drop of house red wine. The food on surrounding tables looked good too. Will definitely return for a more substantial meal!

Dined here this evening, we were a party of seven and got a lovely window table. They were busy and there was a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant. The staff were excellent and the service was very good. We shared starters and desserts which were very tasty and well presented. We all ordered different mains and there were no complaints....

I am usually quite a fan of Dunne and crescenzi, especially the l'oficina branch in dundrum but I had an unsavoury experience on Frederick street recently. The waitress was quite rude and almost raised her voice at me when I asked if my meal could be served with tagliatelle instead of ravioli. On top of this, my vegetarian friend who... More

The food is wonderful. Best steak I've had in ages, cooked to perfection! Great wine list.We went two nights running and my husband also took a friend there for lunch. Friendly and efficient staff. Be sure to book in advance as it's very busy.

Excellent food wine and service However...... They do not serve pizza, lasagne, spaghetti, steaks All the standard Italian classic dishes you would expect. Shame they are not included

Thank you for your review and it is disappointing to receive two stars when you mention excellent food , wine and service. Whilst we do not serve pizza we do have fillet steak, lasagna and our best seller is spaghetti al pomodoro. However, your comments are appreciated and hope to see you back soon, More
