Staff are so friendly and welcoming, food is delicious and authentic as is the wonderful array of wine selection and cocktails. Will definitely be back!!

                                                      Always good. Only issue was they have started charging for the bread they give at the start, this is no issue but I would like to be told beforehand rather than just seeing it on the bill at the end. We had ordered a starter which came with bread so it was redundant but we were still charged for two portions of bread at the end.

                                                      This is one of our local restaurants. It never disappoints. Service very good, food good what more could you ask for. The lasagne has changed since I last ordered it, was better before. It's not a cheap eat so I expect a little more.

                                                      The food is amazing, service is amazing. Definitely, I will be back. I had the ravioli and were perfect! So tasty and the service is great!. One of my fav places in Dublin.

                                                      I booked a table for 12.30 and arrived on time, only to discover that the restaurant was not open until 1pm unfortunately, so had to wait on the street for 20 minutes. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The food is excellent, a 'tad' pricey, but good food and flavoursome. Highly recommendable.

Home made pastas are divine and love the pizza bases especially the black pinsa base. Staff are a great team, great rapport which results in a very friendly and welcoming environment. Service is always outstanding, and food is consistently excellent - one of my top restaurants

                                                      Over all a lovely experience. Food was excellent apart from my daughters lasagne which came out dry and burnt. I mentioned it to watiress and she did say we can take it back, however my daughter wanted to eat with us and not after so she ate some of it. It was very clearly burnt and dry and should not have been sent our from the kitchen. No follow up by waitress afterwards. All the other food and wine was excellent but it did leave us a little disappointed at the end.
