Went on a Sunday evening, had been assured that we needed a booking but turned up to a restaurant with about four other tables on,y- so much for needing a booking, Food was mass produced tasteless Italian, smothered in sauce. deserts were fresh from their supermarket packaging and stolid. Living on past glories. Don't waste your time or money on this- even the coffee is poor.

We asked a young man on the street where the best, reasonable place to eat nearby...and he recommended this wonderful restaurant. It was so cozy, and with authentic Italian food. We had a delicious dinner there.

Ate here with some friends on a week night in December. The place was extremely busy, so space was a bit tight. However, we weren't made feel as if we had to rush and move on. Food was very tasty and lovely and hot. Staff all pleasant and helpful. An enjoyable evening.

Ate here twice during my stay in Dublin & both times it was delicious. The mushroom & truffle ravioli is the best. Really creamy & you can taste the quality of the cheese sauce! Try it & you won't be disappointed. Great for couples or family.

Comfortable settting and great service competed against maginal food preparation. I ordered "baked" lasagna. It had been "baked," i suppose sometime last week, but it was feebly microwaved for serving at my table this evening. You can get this quality and taste from the frozen prepared meals section of your local super market.
