This is a lovely cozy authentic little Italian spot. Very nice staff and a perfect spot for a special date night. It has a fantastic wine list. The menu is extensive, authentic and everything is absolutely delicious. My husband and I like to eat here whenever we are in the neighbourhood. It is an upscale restaurant, but you don't mind...

Attended a business dinner which I could only describe as appalling. Restaurant was busy but not crowded, were seated promptly and menu's were provided, quickly decided on the wine and ordered whilst browsing the food offering. Took an age for the wine to arrive and when it did it was pointed out that one of our party was running a... More

This is an Italian/Irish establishment as the name indicate but the food is 100% and rreally very good. I highly recommend the ravioli in a butter sauce, excellent. Antopasti are very good as are desserts. Nice quiet atmosphere. Highly recommended 8/10

It was a rainy evening in Dublin so we decided to try this Italian restaurant next door to our hotel. Service was excellent and so was the food. My ragout of wild boar with rigatoni was first class and my wife's choice of spaghetti bolognaise was equally good. The standard continued with our desserts, chocolate brownie with whipped cream for... More

I was in town on a Friday and was craving Italian. There were several Italian places in the top 100+ on trip advisor but I was worried about availability on Friday. I got here early around 5:30-5:45pm and luckily got a table for one at that time. Shortly after the place was packed. I started with the radicchio/prosciutto/cheese with roast... More

We had a delicious lunch in Dunne & Crescenzi in Blackrock- in the shopping centre off the Main Street. I hadn't dined with this company in a while & was presently surprised to find they've venture into Blackrock. Same excellent food, and even though the manager said theyve only been open a week or so, the service was good.

We enjoyed a lovely Valentine's meal here after a friend of ours from London had recommended it. The food was delicious and the house white wine was also lovely. The portions were nice and big - we didn't manage to finish or mains! - so you definitely won't go hungry. Prices are pretty average for Dublin and the service was... More

We were in Dublin for a long weekend, and while cruising the Trinity College area, stumbled on to Dunne & Crescenzi's Retaurant and Wine Bar. Very nice surprise! While most of the eateries in the area lean towards "studenty" type offerings (Tacos, burgers, pizza) wander up S. Fredrick St. and you will be rewarded with a serious Italian restaurant. We...
