Popped in on a Friday evening with a friend looking for a bite to eat in a relaxed atmosphere. Starters (Polenta 'chips' and calamari) were ok, but the pizza was very good and quickly devoured. House wine very drinkable. Staff friendly as always. It was a Friday so staff in many places can be frazzled, but here they seem to take it all in their stride!

We were a party of 9 who went here for lunch which was priced as 25 euros. There was a choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and 2 desserts. All were lovely and portions were good. Staff were very attentive. We had house red and white wine which were both lovely. I don't think I could fault it very much . I would definitely return here again

Service here is second to none. The staff are humorous, knowledgeable and attentive in equal measure. The food is great with ever changing daily specials. I tried the Craft beers from Italy and certainly had my eyes opened as regards what Italy can do on the beer front. One of our favourite places in Dublin

Party of 4, this was our first visit to this restaurant and what a joy!. It was recommended to us by an Italian friend who said it was the most authentic Italian in Dublin. We had Tagliatelle Verdi and two pizza. The food was absolutely beautiful and the waiter explained the menu very well. The desserts would be well advised, they are delicious. We shall certainly make a return visit soon.

Love this restaurant. Great authentic Italian food and while not cheap is good value for money. I had a shared starter (ciabatta rustica) and the special (spaghetti with fresh tuna). Washed down with a couple of glasses of Barbera D'Asti - perfect with pasta. Great service, as always.

Wonderful authentic Italian food. The waiters were very attentive and friendly. The food was a little salty for me but that was probably because my dish contained Tuscan sausage. My friends raved about the quality of the pizzas. Great food and very good value. I'll be back.
