I was in town on a Friday and was craving Italian. There were several Italian places in the top 100+ on trip advisor but I was worried about availability on Friday. I got here early around 5:30-5:45pm and luckily got a table for one at that time. Shortly after the place was packed. I started with the radicchio/prosciutto/cheese with roast... More

We had a delicious lunch in Dunne & Crescenzi in Blackrock- in the shopping centre off the Main Street. I hadn't dined with this company in a while & was presently surprised to find they've venture into Blackrock. Same excellent food, and even though the manager said theyve only been open a week or so, the service was good.

We enjoyed a lovely Valentine's meal here after a friend of ours from London had recommended it. The food was delicious and the house white wine was also lovely. The portions were nice and big - we didn't manage to finish or mains! - so you definitely won't go hungry. Prices are pretty average for Dublin and the service was... More

We were in Dublin for a long weekend, and while cruising the Trinity College area, stumbled on to Dunne & Crescenzi's Retaurant and Wine Bar. Very nice surprise! While most of the eateries in the area lean towards "studenty" type offerings (Tacos, burgers, pizza) wander up S. Fredrick St. and you will be rewarded with a serious Italian restaurant. We...

We were lucky to get a table on a Thursday evening without booking. I advise you to do it in advance. Great staff and an amazing cuisine. I just loved my pasta and my dessert. Unfortunately we didn't asked for wine but it has an extraordinary and surprising variety of wines to choose from. The atmosphere is cozy and perfect... More

Myself & my sister met at D&C in Blackrock Shopping Centre today for lunch. Despite getting there at 12.50 & the restaurant not busy, we did not get served our food until 1.35!! And we were having a salad & antipasti board so no cooking involved. People who came in 15 mins after us were served long before us. And... More

Apologies for your disappointing lunch. Although this review is posted on our Town Centre restaurant it refers to Blackrock. The restaurant there is only opened a week and there are obviously issues to be addressed as high lighted in your review. I can assure you that I will personally make sure that the same customer care and attention to detail... More
