L'Officina translates as 'the workshop' and it was with this name in mind that Eileen, Stefano and David came to bring about the inception of its slightly more experimental establishments. With locations in both Dundrum Town Centre and Kildare Village, L'Officina stays alongside the cutting edge of fashion by supplying classic, traditional Italian dishes with a new twist.
Like the fashion around it, the highest quality can come at good prices - making this the perfect stop pre-, mid- or post-shopping. Prepare yourself for the day ahead with a coffee crafted to perfection by our highly skilled baristas and a late breakfast or brunch. Need something to help you maintain the stamina? Our pasta, risottos and panini combine wonderfully fresh ingredients and traditional recipes to prime you for the rest of the day.
New specials are imagined daily, reflecting the name 'the workshop' as our chefs use traditional techniques and recipes seasoned with a hint of artistry to deliver new twists on classics.
L'Officina, with its proximity to Movies @ Dundrum makes it ideal for grabbing a bite before or after the cinema - perfect for an evening's entertainment. Read More
The staff were a little slow to bring our drinks and starters. However, once they arrived, the rest of the service was quick and efficient. The food was absolutely divine, some of the best pasta I have had in Dublin. I would definitely return in the future to sample the rest of this delicious menu.
Great night Thanks to staff very welcoming Very efficient and friendly Food delicious Bruschetta very fresh My friend had the real McCoy - lasagne which was top class My green spaghetti with mussels scallops prawns were delicious first time for green spaghetti Recommend to all thanks again
Staff was excellent Broschetta delicious My friend enjoyed her lasagne and I enjoyed my black spaghetti, mussels, prawns and scallops. First time to have black spaghetti delicious. Thanks for wonderful evening.
We went to L’Officina on Friday night for a girl’s night. The food is excellent everyone was happy with their selection. The staff is friendly and efficient. It is one of the best restaurants in Dundrum and one we keep going back to. The total was 40 Euro ahead including tip, 2 bottles of wine and a couple of extra drinks very good value.
The food here is very tasty and the service is great. The seafood especially is very fresh.

ok...one room with lots of tables squashed in. Storage space is a problem as lots of crates stacked in front of service bar. No music playing!
There is nice seating outside.
Average. Lasagne tasty if a bit too creamy. Bruchetta bland, topped with half ripe (orange) toms.
"roast potatoe side" were more like baby pots boiled (in skins) with a splash of olive oil. bland; would make better myself.
as usual in Ireland very overpriced, €19 for a non descript 2 star red house wine.
Don't like their menu, which is confusing, pretentious (in italian) and has a lack of choice.
They need to get their branding sorted out. Is it called L'Officina OR Dunne And Crescenzi?
I have given this place a bad review in the past but I am very happy to change my opinion and give them the credit they deserve for a really great lunch. The service was really excellent and the waiter was particularly good with my baby daughter - very patient and attentive. The food was great and as it was a lovely sunny day we were able to sit outside by the water. Absolutely perfect.

Service was excellent as always & the Gilligan's Beef in Balsamic Reduction melted in my mouth! My companion, a vegan, was patiently & politely dealt with. I have been here many times and will always come back. I just wish they would put the lamb back on the menu!
Excellent as usual

4 adults & 2 children had dinner on Sunday. We weren't impressed with quality of the food - everything very bland. We've eaten in South Frederick Street and food far superior. Won't be going back to Dundrum
