The Staff vere so nice and proffessional, since they just had one red wine on the vinelist , they gave us an opportiunity , bring your one wine and we serve you. We vere so pleased with their hospitality. The food was delicious and was served with a smile.

Three of us ate here and all of us enjoyed a tasty, reasonably priced meal. It was pretty standard fare for an Italian restaurant/cafe but it was well prepared, tasty and hot. The service was very friendly and helpful and we were well looked after. The price was very resonable and I felt we got good value for money. Would... More

Very nice food; salmon delicious and lasagne 'piping hot from top to bottom and tastes great' mushroom starter with great attention from staff Andy and Elana (hope spelling is correct). At the other end of the spectrum to rude, couldn't have been nicer or more attentive. Also prices very reasonable with early bird special at around €16. Will be back... More

I visited this place few weeks ago with my boyfriend and a friend of mine and left this place pretty angry due to one of the waiter working here. We had few waiters that day but Alex was the main guy who ' looked after us ' if you can even call that. We had an incident with the table... More

I had one of the worst dining experiences of my life at this restaurant and that was before I even tasted any food. Myself and my girlfriend attended here and were seated at a small table in the corner. The place was not very busy ( I now understand why ) so we asked a waitress if we could sit... More

We picked this restaurant because on the menu advertised outside it said it was "authentic". This is not authentic Italian food but microwaved poor quality food. The meatball starter should of been delicious but was four meatballs the size of marbles and served warm not hot. The salmon pasta mains was just that, bite size bits of salmon which was... More

We ducked in here after some rain showers while window shopping on Grafton street. The food was good, the wait staff very pleasant. Our group was re-energized (especially the 17 year old boy who's always hungry!)

We had a quick lunch here last weekend and I am so happy to have found this little gem. They were happy to accommodate my 3 year old even though they haven't got a specific children's menu, they offered half portions of the pasta dishes for him. The food was delicious. We ordered calamari to start and while it was... More
