    No smile policy for staff, lead by the Grand Dame front of house. Food was good, though not cheap. Having a voucher was the only reason we went, otherwise Il Vicoletto across the road much bettet value, relaxed, smiley staff all of which are Italian.

    Great food and very good service. Wine list was a little too thick that made us difficult to choose the right one though (lol), we really enjoyed our time there.

    Most pasta dishes were heavy except the vongole and didn’t seem to be a willingness to adapt dishes to customer preference. Service was friendly desserts limited selection but tiramisu was great. Prices were reasonable. Great wine selection

    Me and my wife come here for special ocassions. We've been here for the third time and all three visits were amazing. The food, the presentation and the service are all superb quality. The dishes are simple but original, not the usual pasta & pizza menu. They were not overly salty. Wine list has top quality wines but most of them are really expensive. Meals are quite pricy too hence we only come for birthdays or anniversaries. It's totally worth it once in a while.

    A wonderful evening with amazing food. The staff are second to none, service is exceptional. We ordered the seabass which was the fish of the day, absolutely mouthwatering! Booked it for my partners birthday meal and the staff went above and beyond to make it special. We opened a bottle of champagne with a sword and at the end they sang happy birthday with a candle in our dessert. Can’t recommend highly enough and I can’t wait to come back to Dublin to visit again

    Unfortunately we did not have a great experience. The scallops were ok but definitely had better and the risotto was undercooked and tasteless. We both ate the same food and both had a runny tummy so it can only be the food

    Food: Scallops cooked perfectly, bread crumb could be more seasoned, quiet bland. Aubergine parmigiana good, little char on the aubergine made it taste burnt and a bit more tomatoes sauce would be better. Lobster- Catalan style, lobster got lost in it. Slightly undercooked and again more seasoning! Tagliatelle with nudja sausage was delicious. Tiramisu-standard Ferro Roche-delicious Wine - delicious Port - standard Service was impeccable. Environment was lovely.

    Service, wine and mains were amazing, very high quality. Only negative were the starters being a bit overpriced. First time eating out in a while so not sure if that’s due to inflation.

    the food is good quality but rather ordinary taste which is out of kilter with its pricing. Starters averaging €22 per dish is way too much for our rather bland and dry starters. The service was warm and friendly but we felt we paid way too much for what was a very ordinary meal. I don’t think we will be back

    Must dine location while in Dublin… if it’s any indication how good the restaurant is there were three parties that walked in wanting a table and unfortunately were turned away. They weren’t large at all (under 4 each). The food was absolutely amazing and they had an amazing wine selection.
