The restaurant's appeal lies in it's natural warmth and charm, offering regulars and newcomers an atmosphere that would make you feel like you are dining in the heart of Milan or Rome.

The normal warm welcome in this gem of an eatery in St. Stephens Green as we arrived for lunch.
Charming waitress guided us to the Valpol which was great.
The mussels in a rich wine and tomato sauce were delicious. We both ordered the lamb's liver with onions and potatoes cooked to perfection and full of flavour
We finished off with Gorgonzola.
Great location for fun or business as tables have reasonable spaces between them and staff quite happy for you to sit and chat for hours.

Though this restaurant terms itself "Italian", don't imagine it's menu is full of the usual heavy pasta varietal dishes. It is MUCH MORE than what you would expect. Very "Continental" in it's theme, the chef is wonderfully creative and consistency for good, better & best was our experience with everything we ordered. So good, in fact, we returned a 2nd time during our stay in Dublin.

The decor and ambiance is simple, tasteful and understated. The service was warm and we were greeted with smiling servers throughout dining experience.

I enjoyed a fabulous fresh sole fillet entree that was light, delicious and plentiful; no skimping and the sole truly had that "fresh" delicate flavour!

The location is convenient to almost all points of Dublin city within a short walk. It's prices were moderate and we found them very reasonable, considering our dining options at the Shelbourne Renaissance Hotel were almost twice as much as Il Posto. When you consider the $ value to the Euro these days, that is a BIG plus. We will return!

Great location - just at the top of Grafton Street on Stephens Green. We eat here a lot, particularly when we are going to see a play in town. They have an excellent early bird menu that is really good value. The wine list is good too.

Three of us had a very pleasant pre-theatre meal here. Their early dinner (5.30-7pm) is only €25 for 3 courses. The staff were very attentive and the food was lovely and authentic Italian. A real gem right in the centre of Dublin. Would go again.

We found the perfect ambience in this nicely set out and tastefully decorated Italian restaurant, not to loud but containing a pleasant buzz about the place that added a welcoming feeling. The service and timing of each dish was excellent and we had a hugely agreeable meal - the Calamari in particular was done to perfection. If I lived in Dublin I'd most certainly be a regular, they seem to have got it just right !
