Everyone tells me how fussy I can be so when I say had a brilliant night out I mean it.
Had popped down to Dublin for Matilda with the children and took a chance based on Trip advisor. Got lucky with a table at eight. The restaurant was full and buzzing.
The service was excellent throughout the night and the food was a pure delight for everyone.
My daughter and wife had Bruschetta and I had the rice balls (forget name) but beautiful.
They went on to have authentic Italian Pizza’s , chicken cacciatore and I had the seafood risotto. All were cleared.....finished with a chocolate fondant and ice cream dessert and coffee.
I will definitely return to this restaurant. The service and quality of food was spot on.
Thank you.

Thank Andrew D

I have been to this restaurant twice in the past few weeks, for lunch. The daily special are gorgeous, on both occasions.
We have found the staff to be attentive, without being instructive.
The dining room is down stairs and nicely laid out and the staff are all Italian, so it feels very authentic

As a train commuter I have walked past this place so many times thinking it was a little coffee shop ..... well I was delighted to discover there is a lovely restaurant downstairs. Myself and my friend visited after work on a Friday, we didn't have a reservation so were lucky to get a table considering everyone else seemed to be regulars and well known by the staff. Anyway onto the food.... we shared a starter of Arancini (€7.85) which was fab and the dressing it came with was just fab, I then had squid ink linguine with prawns (€18.85) nice portion size with a lovely flavour to the sauce - I would have loved some crusty bread to mop it up it was that nice! My friend had rigatoni polpette (€16.75) which she said she enjoyed and would have again. Our meal in total came to €52.45 this included a coke and a glass of red wine. The restaurant has a cosy atmosphere and the staff are very friendly - love, love this place will be going back very soon ... with a reservation!!!

On my second visit to this restaurant and like my first time it was a delight, great varied menu, good prices, and great service. Lots of people don’t realise that below their coffee cafe to the front there is a great restaurant below. Very enjoyable worth a visit.

I went with a group of Irish - Italian friends...the place is very nice but the service was very slow and the pizza was not good at all. The reviews on trip mentioned that it was a good Italian pizza. I disagree . La pasta della pizza non era lievitata bene and was difficult to digest. Il forno elettrico anche non hai aiutato... ok for international standard of pizza...not a good Italian pizza. Also very expensive. One pizza and coke 22 Euro. Sorry but I def do not recommend this place for Italians...
