A proud member of the Ciao Italia group – a seal of quality for Italian restaurants worldwide – Caverna is known for its unpretentious and friendly atmosphere, its pleasant surroundings and, most importantly of all its delicious food, created using only the very best ingredients.
The newly renovated 300 year old Wine Cellar is a beautifully crafted 18th Century Barrel Vault, updated with soft lighting and a superb selection of over 150 premium wines from Italy, France, Spain, Australia, Argentina, California, Chile, Portugal and South Africa.
Very nice charming place, good selection of wines and friendly staff, very friendly, loved it. Food good and cheap price. A good place to talk and have good meals with good music.
Excellent atmosphere and supreme food. Pasta was delicious and fresh.
Great restaurant with super food and service. Will be back.
Went for dinner while on a weekend trip to the city for my partner’s birthday on the back of reading reviews and was not disappointed.
The restaurant was lovely the food was superb and the service was friendly and really attentive, thoroughly enjoyed our evening and when in town again will be sure to visit.
The staff was amazing and the atmosphere is nice. The pizza though is like frozen pizza, which cannot be acceptable for a restaurant that names itself "Italian" (I'm Italian and I know what I'm talking about). Put 3 stars only for the staff, but I wouldn't go back there for a dinner unfortunately.
Very tasty and fresh pasta sauces and cheese. Friendly service.
Service & meals were Excellent! Amount of food you get for the price was amazing. Would recommend to anyone wanting a nice meal away from the pub atmosphere.
Food was AMAZING !!! The previous night we dined at a steak house only a few metres further away from the Caverna paying €34 for a steak alone we were more than disappointed this time we paid €26 euro for a steak chips & sauce could not be more pleased with the meal it was just gorgeous ! Steak cooked to perfection chips nice & crispy garlic sauce was strong corr it haunted me for a few days haha ! Would tell everyone to visit & next time we are i Dublin this will be our first stop !! Fantastic staff also could not be faulted in any way ! THANKYOU for an amazing evening :)
I had the filet and quite possibly was in the top 3 I’ve ever had...absolutely perfect...
Service (Monika from Poland) was an absolute dream...she made our dining experience over the top...sweetest woman...
Everything was fabulous...do yourself a favor and eat here!!
Very enjoyable evening, staff were super friendly and and the food was delicious.
Great ambiance. Got to sit in the Cavern and we loved it. The food tasted authentic and the staff was very friendly. We would definitely recommend this and would eat here again if ever back in town
Amazing food great service over all really good place
Had a gorgeous meal will be back; grilled calamari, garlic prawns, tagliatelle carbonara and Irish steak burger on ciabatta!
Great service, friendly staff, superb value.
Very nice ambiance, great service and delicious food. The lamb shank was amazing.
Me and my girlfriend went here for our three year anniversary which was very special to us. We were here for the first year together and many times in between and we have always loved it and recommended it to our friends. Today was different. We came in , the waiter said table for two and we said yes we have a booking in which he didn’t acknowledge. Our special occasion was dismissed. Our order was taken. The waiter went and watched his laptop during which when the food was being prepared, we could hear the noise from his laptop, the service was not good. We were disappointed with both service and the food as we always love this place. Not sure if we will go back.
As always lovely food and wonderful staff. Deserts now on the pricy side having increased by €2 in the last 12 mont
Very very nice staff, however it's easy to find better price/value...
Great Italian restaurant. Good food and wine. Service is always great and Monika makes sure every guest is well look after.
Really impressed by the service and attention from the staff, would defo go back
Very tasty food and excellent service. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
Great quality food and superb service! Such a good spot in the centre of Dublin City Centre
Been here several times before and it's always been excellent. Same again this time, excellent service and friendly staff. Very nice selection on the menu. Opera cake is to die for 😊
Amazing welcome! Lovely food and good service
Servers were warm and welcoming . The food was outstanding - probably some of our best while in Ireland. Get the Napoleon Burata pasta dish - you won’t be disappointed.
Hostess/waitress provided great service and laughs at our recent visit to Cavernna. She was attentive, informative about the menu choices and hilarious. Thanks for a memorable meal and as said by the woman herself, “life is beautiful”.
The restaurant is full of small flies especially within the bathroom. It should not be open until this is resolved.
Had a group of 12 and they were very good to us, we had a nice space to ourselves upstairs
Very pleasant meal. A group of six of us. All enjoyed their food.
Very average. Thought the chicken wings to start were particularly bad
Food and staff were great!!
Had a blue steak. Was cold. Ask for no onions or mushrooms and it came with both. Asked for mash potatoes and didn't have it but the garlic potatoe ended up to be mash but was microwaved so was boiling hot. Fried spinach was in a pool of water. Wasn't great and wouldn't go back
Family dinner for Christmas. Food not good. Seated upstairs, dreadful decor, cold. 2 glasses had lipstick stains. Won’t be back. Only good food we had was the bruschetta
We really enjoyed our meal, we were a group of 16 friends. Great food and service. Recommend for big groups.
Had our Christmas party here and it was a great choice! Lovely food, lovely staff... we'll be back!
It’s lacking the bar space or somewhere guests could wait for their table.
We had a booking of 9, and I was the organiser of this reservation. So I came in with a friend 15 min beforehand to make sure everything is ok, but they kindly asked us to come back. We wanted to wait at the door, because it was heavy raining and terrible windy outside, but they were pressuring us to leave and suggested that there were some bars down the road where we could wait.
Lovely meal, food is delicious. The restaurant was very noisy that night so was hard to fully enjoy and chat but couldn’t be helped by the restaurant themselves. Would definitely go back
Great location in temple bar, waitress was very pleasant , two courses at 19.90 excellent value for such a wide choice and good tasty well presented food. I went for lunch at 1pm so it was quiet but the music was playing in the background which allowed u to talk without being overheard. I would recommended this place with no hesitation.
Really lovely restaurant, my first visit but it won't be my last. The staff were really friendly and extremely pleasant, not at all pushy and gave us plenty of time to eat our meals and there was a nice amout of time between courses.
