Had a meal here on New Years night. All four of us enjoyed our starters and mains. Food was excellent and staff were very efficient. Thank you to the restaurant for the happy experience.

Went their with the family post Christmas, staff were very good and pizzas tasty but other parts of menu such as Pollo Saltimbocca were way overpriced and average. Choose the pizza and you won't be disappointed.

We went here after a rugby match. The place was packed and there was a nice atmosphere. The pizzas and the pasta are good but not out of this world. €19 per pizza was totally ridiculous. All the staff are friendly and the location is good but for Italian food you are paying fancy French restaurant prices!

After attending 'The Bite' at the RDS on Sunday we found the Al Boschetto along the main road very convenient for lunch. We were given a warm welcome and seated in a quiet corner.

The place hasn't changed in 10 years - not sure if this is a good or bad thing. The wine, like most restaurants in Dublin is grossly overpriced for an very average bottle. It's fine for a quick bite but not a huge amount of physical room in the place. The food is good - The Irlandese pizza excellent !

Thank BruceLee2016
