It had taste but with a lot of oil on the pasta and not to many, everything that we order was like that! So sad!

Was walking past looking for food when this place caught my eye...small and cosy and slightly old fashioned. Staff were lovely...food was delicious and very reasonably priced in what can be an expensive city. Would highly recommend. Lots of variety on the menu also.

Nice Italian restaurant in the heart of Dublin with a huge menu and sweet desserts! Very Expensive restaurant, dont serve Guinness( or any 🇮🇪 beer at all!) and the "well-steaked" beef was still quite raw...

It's hard to overstate the quality of the food here. Whatever you choose, you can be sure that its freshly prepared from the very best of the ingredients. The house wine is excellent, and service is always fast and cheerful.
