After spending quite a while finding somewhere to have dinner, with all the variety in Dublin, we were happy we chose here. A lovely little find! With it being quite small, we popped in on the off chance to see if they had a table left that hadn't been booked. We were quickly seated and served, with so much to... More

I have eaten here quite a bit before and usually have good experience. This time the service was quite poor. Waited nearly 45 minutes for a bowl of soup. The waitress then told me that soup was not ready and that they had also lost my order.

I have been here a good few times to meet up with my husband for a quick lunch during the week. I really love their pizza and I highly recommend it. The service can be mixed but not to the point that it will ruin our meal.

Two of us went for dinner and a glass of wine. We had been here before and had a good experience- but not this time! Food was average only. We asked to move to another table and the waitress was not pleased at all! There was a smell emanating from the kitchen which was pungent. Thought it might pass but... More

A delightful little find. We had a lovely early dinner and the staff were wonderful. My boyfriend is lactose intolerant and they were very accommodating in providing a goats cheese pizza, along with all the condiments we could ask for. The atmosphere was sweet and they played great music.

We visited this restaurant following a recommendation from a friend. Staff were very friendly.. we had a delicious starter, Garlic bread and cheese that was more than enough to share. I then had a slight issue with my dish, I cut into the stuffed chicken and the meat was still very much raw.. with no fuss atall the waitress took... More

Cafe Topolis is an excellent restaurant in Parliament Street in Temple Bar, I've dined here many times with business associates and friends alike, the food is Italian and always superb and great value, I'm always happy to being business friends here. They have a wood oven which makes their pizzas especially excellent ! Highly recommend this restaurant

Thank Berty14

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.
