We had dinner here on a very busy Friday night in Dublin and it was very crowded but the food was excellent and the wine list even better. The special was a butternut squash risotto with sausage in a parmesan cheese bowl and it was delicious! I had the pistachio crusted rack of lamb with roasted potatoes and it was cooked to perfection. Tiramisu for dessert as well as the chocolate gelato each wonderful. Top this dinner off with a bottle of the Clemente VII Chianti Classico and you have one fabulous dinner.
The wine list is all Italian and quite good. The waiters are from Italy and while they don't appear to have enough grasp of the English language to be really good waiters they're charming and as helpful as they can be.

Ideal location in the heart of Dublin, this Italian restaurant comes highly recommended. Wonderful, warm welcome (well it is Ireland and the staff are Italian), and the food outstandingly good.

We visited with our grandson (age 4) and the staff treated him like a prince, which made the experience for parents and grandparents even more enjoyable.

There is an excellent choice of wines.

Value for money.

This is our second visit and confirms our initial experience. Can't wait to go again.

Italy and Ireland together - what could be better!

Went on a business trip and craving some nice Italian landed in this restaurant. We were presently surprised by how authentic the ambiance and food was. The staff were attentive and service was great. We trie the tomato soup which was superb fans a must try, followed by shrimp risotto and Alfredo pasta. The breads were freshly baked and Tasted just amazing. It was so good we went back the next day with more colleagues from work and everyone just loved it. Perhaps one of the best Italians I have tried and would highly recommend it.

Ate there on a very cold Easter Sunday pm. It was warm and welcoming and popular. The Italian staff created an authentic atmosphere and neglected no one. The food was enjoyable but not spectacular. We came away satisfied maybe even smiling. And, very importantly, price was fair. It was not our first visit and we will be back!
