If you can't go to Italy, go to Cafe Topolis. Delicious food, big portions, decent prices. Best Italian restaurant I've been to in Dublin.

Lovely intimate Italian restaurant. Casual & comfy. Food was tasty & cooked fresh. Penne salmon was delicious. €52.00 for 3 starters, 3 mains & 2 glasses of wine was good value. Will definitely return .

From the very friendly welcome, to the swift service, to the excellent food and drink we had an excellent meal here. Fortunately it was recommended to us by one of the locals. Definitely worth a visit.

When I was there I didn't enough covers for 50 people. They would probably have to dedicate the whole restaurant to your party. Best ask them

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.
