A large selection of Italian food on the menu. We each ordered something different and not a complaint nor a morsel left! Large portion of tortellini with spinach, stuffed chicken breast served with mashed potatoes and baked stuffed mussels with pesto. Never had mussels served this way and at first very skeptical, they came out in the half shell all... More

For an excellent weekday two course lunch under €10 it would be difficult to top Topolis. I have dined there with different friends over the past 18 months and the quality of food and service remains consistent. For me the house Minestrone is to die for and the pasta is spot on. There's an excellent range of choice. I'll definitely... More

I often come here at lunchtime sometimes with a large group of fellow workers. Service is fast and food never disappoints. 2 courses for under a tenner. Not many starters but a good range of pasta, pizzas, meat or salad dishes for main course.

How this place has 4 stars is beyond me. The food was mediocre (very little flavour on my pizza and a lasagna that tasted like curry), the service was garbage (ordered a bruschetta and never got it, as well as waiting a long time for our food) and the price was so blown out for what we got I felt...

Ordered the grilled mussel starter, came black, burnt pesto topping and the accompanying salad was pretty tasteless, waitress obviously very rushed. Mains were much better, but wouldn't go back, perhaps should have had the pizza which is what they advertise themselves for....

Came here for lunch with a friend (my first visit here, on the recommendation of my friend), and was not disappointed. My first impression was that the restaurant was extremely busy, always a good sign. The lunch is extremely good value...€9.95 for starter & main course, or €11.95 if you want to round it off with a coffee. We both... More

Been here on Friday evening, didn't have a booking, but managed to find a table for 2 even if the place was quite busy. The food was good - we had pizzas - and the staff was OK.

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.
