Myself and my partner went to Il Vicoletto after hearing rave reviews from friends of ours. We are really into food but are on a low income so save to go out. The night we went there was a flood in the restaurant, which we understand threw the staff off a bit, but they were unattentive and unapologetic - for... More

In Dublin with friends for St Paddy's Day. Was recommended this restaurant. 6 of us had a 3 course excellent meal with 2 bottles of decent wine for around 250 Euros. Good service, good food, great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

We were there the day before St. Patrick's day so it was very busy and in high demand and even though we we're there for a little over 3 hours (not due to service but cause we wanted to), we never felt rushed and the staff was very professional and courteous. The food was amazing and a good value as... More

We booked this place before we came and I'm so glad we did. A quaint restaurant off the main hight street. The place was busy but small so it had a good atmosphere to the evening. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food however was delicious. The calamari starter was the best I've ever eaten, so succulent and melted... More

An amazing fine dining experience for the just above the "average Joe's" price. If you are tired of bar food and looking for something relaxing but not far the Temple bar hustle and bustle Il Vicoletto offers a great wine selection to be paired with your authentic Italian food.

I've been there yesterday 12/3/17 with my wife for our 1 year wedding anniversary. First thing you should know is that i'm Italian, and I think this restaurant would be a very good restaurant even by italian standards in italy. We had 2 starters, one was a special of the day (burrata and pata negro) and bowl of seafood. then... More

Been here with a friend. The food was over priced, the restaurant really small as well as the portions. Italian reataurant on top of offering good food should be generous with the portion as well like in Italy. 6 ravioli (worst ravioli ever), 1 glass of wine and a dessert 35 euro? First and last time.

Absolutely one of the best meals we have had in Dublin. We come from an area of the USA with good Italian food and this restaurant was on a par. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and an intimate atmosphere. On Crow St. off Dame Street in Temple Bar.

A delicious, authentic, hidden gem. Particularly enjoyed the homemade spaghetti with beautifully cooked shellfish. We shared lovely fresh and flavoursome bruschetta to start and poached pear for desert. Absolutely no faults with the food! Staff were also friendly and attentive and gave great suggestions for the pasta choices Not a big deal but we were slightly disappointed to see other... More
