Caverna Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
Caverna Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar is a really cozy place and really like the basement, which is a bit like sitting in a wine cellar. I went there with a friend and we both had a lovely steak and some nice Italian red wine. The staff was friendly and helpful so can only recommend this place for a nice dinner in Dublin.
Food was ok, but the service was poor and the restaurant was lacking atmosphere. It was also quite run down, had to walk past dusty suitcases and dirty laundry in a back corridor to get to the bathroom.
Service left a lot to be desired, the waiters did not come near us to check in at any stage, we had white wine but weren’t even given an ice bucket for this.
Would not recommend.
My boyfriend and I were visiting Dublin for 1 night and felt like Italian. We read the reviews and so booked a seat and were overly delighted with the service, food and wine list. It wasn't overly expensive and the service was exceptional. Def worth a visit if you're in town.
We went for our daughters graduation . The food was excellent we all had different dishes and all equally delicious . The staff were very helpful and friendly . Didn't actually see gluten free bread on menu but should of asked , but apart from would defiantly return . Thank you so much for ending our celebrations perfectly .
We had a wonderful Italian meal right in the heart of Dublin. The food was delicious and fresh, the ambience was divine (there was some fish tanks in the table!) Overall we had a good experience and would highly recommend for anyone looking to have something a little different in Dublin.
It's hard to put a review for this restaurant into words as they won't do it justice.
The staff are extremely friendly and polite, the food is amazing too.
We have been 3 times since March and every time we have ordered the same food because we know what we are getting. It's mouth watering so it is.
It's one of Dublin's hidden gems, such a nice place, every time we are talking to our friends we always recommend going to this restaurant. It's always going to get a 10 out of 10 from us.
Good value establishment in the centre of temple bar. Seems to be popular with the tourist/stag and hen temple bar clientele. No complaints with the food or service, totally adequate. My only negative is the ambiance is a bit lacking.
Very lovely dinner, food was very nice and the staff excellent. Amazing experience. Keep being friendly as it does make a big difference.
We will come back again:) - loved the decoration, quality of service, food and wine.
Fantastic food and service, will come again next time I am in Dublin. You would walk past it in the street and not think much of it, I had booked on line before my trip, I was very very pleased, it was busy but service was very efficient, food was excellent.
