“Good quality Dunne & Crescenzi don't let you down”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Peak hour queue but well worth it, the atmosphere was busy but organized. We ordered an antipasto misto nothing to envy Emilia Romagna or Tuscany and home made vegetable soup on such an Irish rainy day worked out very, naturally fresh and good combination of vegetables. Final treat was a wonderful Tiramisu desert and an espresso better than lots of Italian bars. Well Dunne and Crescenzi yet again I will make it a point to visit your restaurants when in Ireland.

“Authentic Italian Cuisine”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Every time I go to Kildare I have to go to l'Officina as the food and service are superb. The food in particular is authentic Italian and that's not always easy to find in Ireland. The wine list is great too. I can't wait to go back next week when I will be in Ireland again.

“super italian not irish”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

everything about this plase is great, the service we receive is always fantastic, the food always authentic, although busy at times it is worth the wait. This is not the place for soup and a sandwich, it is italian food. Monica the manageress has always looked after us, we are regular visitors here and always go back due to the food and service, there is not an italian like it in County Kildare.
Child friendly, good food, and a busy atmosphere. Not for the romantics, good food in simple surroundings.

“Disappointing each time”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

It's the third I've gone and each time it's been overpriced and the food is poor. I can't see how the owners do not realise the damage to their brand from one poor restaurant.
