Very good hearty Italian food. I had a pizza and my partner had the lasagne. We didn't try the wine but they had an extensive list. Good for couples. Maybe a few too many tables but I suppose that's how they make money. We nearly went back for a 2nd meal but didn't because we wanted to explore.

Small portioned but not the price. Early bird menu looks cheap enough. The 3 starters were nice but small. Not a bad thing. The Lasagne and chips was a let down In size taste and portion. Chips were hot, but hard and sharp. Bad fries really.

I have visited this restaurant three times since 1999 and unfortunately I don't know why I go back. Each time I hope it has improved, but in my opinion it has not. On frequent visits to Dublin I walk past it often and it can be full of people from quite early in the evening which is good. Last week... More

Visited this evening, 4x Adults and Grandson. The welcome, the menu, the atmosphere and the food are all simply superb. This is relaxed dining at it's best with food that would be quite at home in Italy, plus some nice little local touches. If you like red wine, their Primitivo is a delight...and kept at a good temperature, too. Too... More

Visited here with my girlfriend. The restaurant was really nice. The food was really nice and the carbonara was great quality. One of the waitresses serving was a bit cold but finished her shift half way through her meal and we had a much nicer and friendly waitress afterwards. Over all we paid 80 euros for a bottle of wine,... More

We love Il Corvo restaurant and go once a week at least. The food is excellent, there is a good wine list and the service is friendly and efficient. Great for Italian dishes in particular but the steak can be unpredictable. Ali as proprietor-chef, and Rosemary as maîtresse d' run an excellent establishment.

According to traditional Italian recipe, Arrabbiata sauce is made from chilli, garlic and tomatoes. Maybe because I work in catering and have extensively travelled Italy that I had high expectations of this 'authentic' Italian restaurant. I was greatly disappointed. Since being in Ireland for two weeks I was craving a great authentic Penne Arrabbiata. I usually make a pretty good... More

I had the chicken & mushroom risotto and the others had pizzas. A nice Chilean red and Bob's your uncle for a good meal. The chocolate orange banoffee for pudding was yummy. The service was very good.
