Stopped in for lunch on a chilly, rainy afternoon and was served the most delicious homemade minestrone soup. The first incredible soup on our three week trip! Also ordered the cheesy garlic bread which made for a perfect lunch.

It had been a while since I was last in Topolis but I was delighted to find that the food is still excellent and the atmosphere lively. They have their own pizza oven and the pizzas are really good. Service is pleasant and good

Fantastic fresh Italian food at very reasonable prices. Very child friendly. Fantastic pizza and pasta but still reasonably extensive meat menu. Deserts were great with only the ice cream a little disappointing. So why not five stars overall? The decor is a bit dated and...More

The food is average. Nothing to be remembered. The pasta with Salmon had almost no fish on it. Average is the word. Don't expect nothing great.

When I was there I didn't enough covers for 50 people. They would probably have to dedicate the whole restaurant to your party. Best ask them

Located in the heart of the city center, next door to Dublin's City Hall and serves its guests with a wide variety of mouth-watering Italian cuisine. All of the pizzas at Cafe Topolis are cooked in the traditional wood burning pizza oven. A wood fired pizza oven cooks your pizza better than a normal oven because of the heat it stores in its dense walls.Due to its shape, the oven disperses the heat very evenly which ensure the pizza is perfect when it arrives at your table. If you're going out for lunch, then you can get a great lunch at Cafe Topolis from €8.95.The early bird menu starts at 3pm and offers a great set meal from €14.95.
