This restaurant has a really nice atmosphere and the view from the window is great. The staff are very attentive and provide a great service. We had visited this restaurant many times but were a bit disappointed with the quality of the food both of us thought the standard of the starters and mains had been much better on previous... More

Here with family, staff couldn't have been more friendly. 2 courses for €19 was great value. Minestrone soup was full of chunky vegetables and beans. Bruschetta my wife had was yum! Mains were Mushroom ravioli with truffle oil, a heavy dish, but delicious and kept smile on my face. Pancetta, tomato, chilli pasta was perfectly cooked and nicely spiced. With... More

Had reservations for Valentine's Day evening with my boyfriend. I had surprised him with the reservation and he was very impressed with the place. A special Valentine's Day menu was provided with prosecco upon arrival--which was very nice! I had the lobster ravioli which was absolutely divine! He had the risotto with sausage which was also tasteful. Would definitely come... More

Called in on spec for lunch on Saturday afternoon with mum. Staff couldn't have been friendlier. Mum doesn't like big helpings so they were so nice n helpful, giving her smaller portion. Would recommend

We had arrived in Dublin on a 12.30 flight, after a taxi ride into the city we wanted to find somewhere warm and friendly with good food. We were walking along the River Liffey and spied Bar Italia and a quick check on the Trip Advisor App looked like it was good. No booking but that was fine and we... More

I was craving pasta and this restaurant was recommended to us by a local! Fresh ingredients make this restaurant exceptional. My girlfriend enjoy the pizza! We shared a fine bottle of wine. We walked in on a Friday night and the place was packed. They were very welcoming and we waited only 10 minutes for our own table.

The restaurant was cosy and welcoming on a cold December night. Staff were extremely attentive and welcoming. We had made a group booking for a Christmas meal and we all ordered from the Christmas set menu (€32.50). My starter of bruschetta was nice and I ordered a green tagliatelle pasta with smoked salmon, cream and lemon zest for mains. Finding... More

Great restaurant near the millenium bridge over Liffey, for a good Italian menu. I greatly enjoyed the minestrone as well as tagliatelle alla bolognese sauce. The waiting staff was very friendly. The ambiance is good and spacious. Worth it for its value. I went there twice (for dinner and lunch) and I'd go again.

Popped in here on our last night in Dublin as we'd seen it on a few occasions as we walked past and drove past on the bus. The staff looked flustered when we arrived and tried to find us a table which was right in the window. My partner had wanted calamari since we arrived and was definitely ordering it... More
