“Great atmosphere and food”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

I had a very enjoyable evening at this restaurant a few weeks ago with my partner and two other couples. The atmosphere is relaxed and the clientele seemed to be regulars, which is a good sign! The food and drink was very well priced, no more than €35 a person, this included starters, mains , coffees and plenty of wine. The staff are very friendly and do not impose unless needed. We all enjoyed the evening and felt in no way rushed as we stayed for some time finishing our wine. One tip I would give is to maybe share a starter as the portions are very generous. Hope to get back here soon.

“Flatbreads are gorgeous and the coffee is one of the best in the city”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Sat in here recently for a cappuccino that you could tell was made by an Italian. Can't think of anywhere around the city that does better. As for the flatbread, this was simple enough but was absolutely delicious with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil just to top it all off. Would highly reommend.

“Slow but worth the wait :)”
Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

This is a small Italian cafe, which was very busy when we went there. It is run by a man & woman , and the food is prepped is front of you!

We had tomatoe soup.. Special starter that day. It was only €5 and it was huge. The flavours were bursting.. And presentation was fab.

I will defo return here.

Service was a little slow with the cafe being full however the man was attending to everyone accordingly :)

Very friendly.

“EXCELLENT Italian dishes beautifully created by an Estonian in the middle of Ireland! Can't get more international than that! ”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

From the appetizer to the dessert this meal was incredible. The restaurant is cozy and casual (seats only 20) and the chef (and also co-owner), a big but very pleasant Estonian knows how to cook! We opted for the evening's specials and were delighted. The facade of the building blends with all others but their food stands on its own!
