It’s probably the best Italian I know in Dublin, simple food that tastes amazing! Staff couldn’t be nicer. They’ve really made the most of outdoor dining, really comfortable in the middle of a busy street, it felt like sitting out for a meal in Bologna again.

We had a great time at Host restaurant. The service was extremely friendly and gave us excellent advice on what to order. The kitchen and servers were very accommodating in providing vegan options for our table and proposing a variety of dishes that met our dietary requirements and were absolutely delicious. The atmosphere was great also.

Really lovely and welcoming staff, very attentive but not overly.
Food was really delicious- some dishes overpriced for the size but generally fair as the quality is very good.
They created a lovely outdoor dining experience in a challenging space - I didnt feel we were on the street!

First time at Host and we loved the food. Tried aubergine with pistacchios, burrata with peaches, and fried gambas as starters. Then, for the main we got all pasta in the menu (pumpkin stuffed, duck rayu tagliatelle, murrel taglioni). I'd suggest cheesecake and chocolate&salted caramel tart for the dessert. The only thing missing was moctail. I wish they had moctails.

Always love coming to host - the food is great and my friend had some food intolerances which the kitchen tried its best to work around including grilling the squid instead of frying it (which I think it was actually much tastier this way)! Will of course return as it’s a favorite spot of mine
