It was Monday night and at 6:00pm was surprised to see so many people at that time. What I noticed quiet a few people eating alone that seemed to be regulars. Nice old building which felt relaxing. On my list for a return.

This is a very nice restaurant in the south centre of Dublin with a good seating if in three separate rooms. The food is average and expensive for lunch. However, the staff, Italian, are very pleasant and the ambiance is warm. They should offer value...More
