Really good Itallian good variety on the menu & wine list. Very reasonably priced for Dublin. Only issue I would have is the size, it's a small place not great for big groups.

Excellent meal with very nice wine recommended by waiter. The restaurant was very busy with Christmas parties but as a couple we were very well looked after. The manager even came into pub next door to tell us our table was ready!!!

Yes, this is very much a typical Italian restaurant, with the busy, bustling atmosphere that you would expect. Waiters are all very friendly and knowledgeable, and service was delivered in a good humoured, and efficient manner. For pasta lovers I think it is a 'died...More
