“Great food, great atmosphere, great service!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Il Vicoletto really lived up to the reviews! I was organising a Hen party and opted for Il Vicoletto based on previous reviews. Food was gorgeous, staff were a delight and atmosphere was a pleasure. We opted for the all night menu, it was great value and everyone was delighted with what they ordered. The calamari is absolutely divine for a starter and the bruschetta was top notch. The seabream which was on special was cooked to perfection and the desserts were delicious and ended the meal perfectly. The staff made us feel really welcome and it was definitely service with a smile! The bride even got a bottle of champagne at the end of the night as a gift from the staff. We will all definitely be back and I will most certainly be recommending this restaurant to friends.

“Best Italian I've ever had in Dublin”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Went with 5 colleagues last Thursday evening for an early bird to celebrate one achieving her doctorate. It literally couldn't have been better - from the prosecco on arrival to the grappa at the end. We were told the specials which included scallops (perfectly cooked!) on black pudding with caviar or spicy prawns with garlic bread (also sumptuous- we shared!). The mains involved homemade ravioli one with cream cheese and spinage and another with potato and chorizo. The portion size was perfect, flavour sublime- totally authentic - not trying too hard. I highly recommend it and it was excellent value and the wine tasty and again wide selection. The only thing I would say is that we were summarily dismissed to make way for the next sitting but at those prices they deserve the table back after 3 hours! Service classic Italian- I was in Rome at Easter and the food here was better!

“Delicious food and cosy setting”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

We loved this cute, cosy restaurant which had a very authentic feel to it. Italian waiters were very attentive and helpful and added to the overall experience. The pasta dishes which we ordered were fantastically tasty. I would definitely recommend this place as good value and a great choice for couples.

“Wonderful experience every time”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We have frequented this restuarant many times over the past number of months and have never once been disappointed. Quite the opposite. This is a very quaint, cozy spot. Reservations are definitely required. Each experience has been wonderful. The food is rich in flavours and always top notch. Please try the calamari, it's the best I've ever had. The service is second to none. They always take time to review the menu items and the wine.. oh, the wine. They truly know their wines, from the origin of the grapes, the specialty of each of the vineyards and how best to serve it. They do their very best to ensure that each glass of wine tastes exactly as it was intended.

All the waiters and waitresses are great, but Roberto has taken special care of us. We all appreciate his attention to detail and making sure our experience is the best it can be.

Highly, highly recommend this restaurant.
