I have eaten in Il Vicolettos on perhaps 10 occasions and have never been disappointed - friendly staff - great food - quick service and the price is always reasonable. Hopefully will be there again within the next couple of weeks.

“Il Vicoletto ”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Very impressed! Great service (Roberto's recommendations were spot on). Delicious fresh food. Better than our experience in Rome! Highly recommended! Romantic music and an unpretentious relaxed atmosphere. If you want geniuine Italian experience, this the place for you.

“You can understand why it's in Dublins top 10”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

This is a compact resturant tucked away in Dublin, but absolutely worth a visit. The staff was super friendly and the food was simply amazing. We had the best mozzarella I have ever eaten outside Italy. The special of the evening was a homemade tomato ravioli which was also superb. My only negative (which is a small one) was it was a little cramped inside and the tables and chairs were tight. If you like Italian food, I would fully recommend.

I am Italian and when I came to Dublin I wasn't honestly expecting to find any good Italian restaurants so far, but I was really really impressed when we first went to Il Vicoletto. It's a small place with good atmosphere, everyone is Italian (which is great), the service is great, the food is really tasty, truly italian, and If you didn't like the service or the food than you don't like the real Italian but just the fake one. I had a great experience and will go back soon!
Try it!

Per il Manager: Ho letto le sue risposte alle review negative e devo ammettere che apprezzo tantissimo il suo atteggiamento, che non e' sottomesso al cliente, ma dedicato a. Mi piace vedere che non tutti accettano passivamente l'opinione della clientela secondo la regola "ha sempre ragione", ma piuttosto difendono la qualita' e la genuinita' del posto in cui stanno lavorando. La apprezzo molto. Le auguro successo e felicita'.

“Great Italian in heart of Dublin”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

People often say you don't go to Ireland for the food, and in general I would agree, unless you go for the Italian. And in that case, it is Il Vicoletto. I found this place several years ago when I was working regularly in Dublin and go back every time I am in town (sometimes, multiple visits on a single business trip.)

The food is always great. Excellent menu , great choices - something for everyone. In addition, the service is top notch. Friendly and welcoming, as you would expect to find in any trattoria in Florence.
