Visiting Dublin with parents, they recommended that we come here based on their experience a couple of years back. What a recommendation that was! This is a tiny(!) restaurant with a buzzing atmosphere just off temple bar. It's cosy, quaint and charming. The waitstaff are great fun, make sure you're never out of wine and aren't obtrusive in the small... More

Everything here is to perfection. Food is the best Italian I've had outside of Italy. Fresh white truffles the night I visited also!

Firstly I have to say staff are very friendly and smiley. The restaurant itself is cosy and intimate which was a good start. We popped in here for a meal on the off chance and having scanned trip advisor first we had high expectations. Credit to the restaurant, they were busy but said they could squeeze us in after a...

The restaurant is small and cute, definitely cosy. The service is friendly. The dinner was only OK, I was not overly impressed with it. Also €4.50 for a bottle of still water (and €5 for a small bottle of Peroni) isn't my idea of good value, despite the food being reasonably priced. Temple bar prices I suppose.

The food is lovely but I felt uncomfortable with the service. I went for a lunch by myself, the waiter took my order but didn't tell me the specials of the day, but said to the table beside me. And I got very interested... after order my food. He also didn't bring me a basket of bread and olive oil,... More

"You are going to have to get a bigger restaurant" I told the Patronne of this, as always, jam-packed eatery. He responded with an indulgent smile and an assurance that he has no intention of changing a thing . Returning after a long absence I have to admit - this trattoria is nearly perfect. The atmosphere is extremely cosy and... More
