So its Fish and Chips night. Each area has is classics. In South County Dublin its only one chipper - Aprile. Still magnificent. I can't remember when I started going there perhaps over 30 years ago when the Aprile family ran the place.
The chips, the true test of a chipper, are tasty, hot, fresh and tasty. The fish is always perfect. All their batter is perfect. Service is good and staff friendly. On the down side I have noticed the ques are somewhat disorganized at times but not to the extent that it causes too many problems.

Parking is still chipper style - abandon it and hope for the best. And now there is an O' Brien's down the way to stock up on while your waiting.

Aprile - the cause of many a diet over the years. Excellent - excellent.

I just tested this restaurant and I have been very impressed by the quality of food. Everything is very good and very good value. I'd definitely recommend it and we will surely come back! And as a real italian restaurant they offered a complimentary shot at the end of the dinner ! :)

Myself and friends went to aprille for an surprise engagement dinner. On arrival we were met with a table covered in rose petals, roses and prosecco. The service and food was impeccable and to finish it all off we were presented with a beautiful cake. Thanks to all the staff for making it such a special evening.

This place is fantastic, my favourite Italian restaurant in Dublin.

The Penne al Vodka is fantastic and I also had a taste of the carbonara as well.

Wonderful friendly staff as well.
