It's an ok Italian restaurant that has been here forever. Nothing remarkable but a pretty safe bet if you're looking for reasonable pasta or a pizza. I recommend the beef cannelloni - go for it.

I was surprised this restaurant did not close sooner than it did. The owner was by far the worst kind of individual you could possibly come in to contact with in Dublin. She was rude to customers and children alike. Customer service skills were non existent. The food served was the poorest Italian on the Dublin scene. No surprise that... More

This used to be a regular Christmas spot for lunch for us but its standards have slipped. 3 of us (adults) were squeezed into a corner and the table was only suitable for 2 people. We asked for tap water but were told the water pressure was down and we couldn't have it - so we had to buy a... More

A number of things on the menu were unavailable, portions were tiny. Food was almost okay, but overall terribly terribly poor value for money. Lady (owner) wasn't very welcoming.

We stopped here for lunch. We were greeted by the most unfriendly hostess who made us feel like such an inconvenience as we had a buggy therefore she could not give us a high chair for our one year old as she had no room... there were plenty of available tables. I offered to collapse buggy but no this was... More

Pasta Fresca is a busy restaurant because, I suspect, of its central location just off Grafton Street. The food is mediocre Italian and the service was intermittent - I wasn't sure whether I was going to be served and once my order was taken there was a long delay before any food or beverage arrived. The lady in charge seemed... More

My wife and I wanted a quick meal before a late appointment in the city centre. Walked into pasta fresca, where we had last dined about 4 years ago. Guy who greeted us was very off handed in his attitude, showed us to a table (only 3 other tables in use). Gave us menus, we said we just wanted water... More
