We enjoyed dinner here and we had enough food for another meal at home. Pizza and risotto were great. Good service.

Another top pick on O'Connell Street not only for Dinner, Lunch but they serve up a particulary good Breakfast menu with plenty of options, including vegetarian dishes. Very affordable & quite big serving sizes. Staff are always friendly, will provide water for your four-legged friend and happy to adjust any meal to suit dietary requirements. This is our go-to Breakky... More

We were looking for a place to eat on Sunday after 3pm and saw this café was noted as open from "7am to late". We thought we would take a chance the kitchen was still open and was pleasantly surprised they kitchen did not appear to close. We sat outside near the corner, which was a little noisy but not...

In the first days of the year of the rooster, I've ordered eggs Benedict from very friendly waitress. A big slice of warm, crusty bread, topped with several slices of thinly sliced gently smoked ham and double yoked eggs, yokes the colour of setting sun! Divine sauce, lemongrass gently sprinkled! Cappuccino, every drop of goodness that Lavazza offers! Italy in... More

We usually enjoy a coffee and cake or breakfast at Pellegrini - it's nice to sit outside in pleasant weather and the coffee is good. However, the last time we went they weren't more full than usual, but we ordered 2 coffees and waited over 30 mins, at which point we gave up, got a refund and went elsewhere. We... More

Family of 4. Didn't order anything extraordinary...just Veal funghi, Chicken Schnitzel & 2 Salt & Pepper Calamari...which the staff member made a point of telling me that... More

Lunched here by default as booked venue hit by power outage. Our group ordered bruschetta,pizza,salads and bread. Everything eaten. Quick service,staff efficient, reasonable prices for city eatery,coffee served at right temp. Just ask the gardener to trim bush in adjacent plant box as it encroached in our space. But apart from this it was a pleasant afternoon.

Thank Mary D
