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.
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.
Were were a group of 8 people -and we all enjoyed our meal. We had a lovely square table with 2 on each side - meaning that everyone was in the conversation - which was lovely. The waiting staff were terrific - very patient with us as we took ages to decide every little thing.
We loved our food - loved our wine -and desserts were fab. We would have stayed all night - be eventually we had to leave......it was midnight!
Window seat with quiet Temple Bar street view, excellent service and food made for a great dining experience for two.
second time here. best italian food i’ve ever had. lovely staff. lgbt friendly.
Group of six had lunch before rugby match.
Lovely food and friendly servicd
Was early booking at .5.15 - quiet & cold in main restaurant
Good choice of food but no atmosphere here for early dining
Staff were brilliant. So friendly. Food was extremely tasty.
a tiny gem hidden amidst the bustling bars of temple bar. service was very good and food, well they are a good ambassador for Italian brand, fresh pasta, and cant get over my garlic prawn starter.
The staff are exceptional and made the evening special.
Delicious Italian food in the heart of the Temple Bar district! The minestrone soup was delicious and the calzone was not only enormous but stuffed with pepperoni and ham. You will not leave hungry nor dissatisfied...really pleased with our dinner!
Good place to eat, nice food, nice ambiance. Would recommend
Good food good drink nice location and staff. Easy to book a table in short notice
Waiters and hostess were excellent and added a little fun to the evening!
We had a lovely time sitting in the cellar itself downstairs. Service was fairly prompt and good - not intrusive. My husband enjoyed his pasta dish but I was disappointed in the quality of the Bolognese was not up to par. Tasted like plain hamburger.
Great food and extensive Italian wine selection
The restaurant is lovely, the food is amazing! All the staff are so friendly and attentive. I had an amazing time there!
Lovely meal and an enjoyable experience. Would recommend booking to anyone looking fur good food in a quietish area of Temple Bar area of Dublin
Very good. I thought the experiment overall was nice.
Nine of us were traveling together in Dublin. We got to the restaurant early, and were able to be seated downstairs (in the wine cellar, which is a brick arched room). The ambiance was very quaint and the space was quiet - we were able to hear each other and share each others impression of the city and its attractions. The matradee was very pleasant and very accomodating. Our waiter was prompt and attentive. We ordered drink and food, which arrived in a timely fashion. Everyone enjoyed their dinner and the experience. It was a special memory. I'd go back again.
