The menu has the expected Italian fare but with named local ingredients (“Gilligan’s Irish Free Range Chicken Breasts”)and with a touch of flair. They have pizzas with “24 hours natural levitation”, and a menu of snacks and treats, including a “Cheese larder” available until 5.30...More

No a choice for locals. It's clearly aimed at tourists of North America. It's expensive and taste less for the price. Other less obvious and medals award advertising restaurant is your better choice. Not worth the money from my point of view. Staff are friendly...More

On our first night, it was obvious that this place is quite authentically Italian, and not some quasi-Irish/Italian. The food was great as was the service. Great wine too!

Located in Dublin's Italian Quater, Bar Italia sits on the corner of Ormond Quay and the Millenium Walkway. With wall to wall windows overlooking the River Liffey, the restaurant has a bright, classic interior. The outdoor seating is a bonus on a sunny day. Thankfully...More

Tables on the ground floor (good) and in the basement next to the toilets (really bad). Pizza looked good, tasted OK but was very watery due to the mozzarella. As a result, the tomato sauce was washed away during baking. Would not go there again.
