Caverna Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar
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.
I went with my 81 yr old mother who is is in fine fettle but does need a walking cane. The waiter did not greet us in a friendly manner and directed my mother down a steep flight of stairs to the secondary sitting area despite her apparent apprehension. The food was simple but fresh and tasty. Portions were a little large but reasonably priced. The cavern is noisy when everyone is talking but there was a pleasant atmosphere. It could be really good if there was a little more charm.
Lovely staff, Monika is a marvel. Delicious food, always a wonderful experience.
Monica was awesome. Great energy and food!!! Bruscetta was best ever
Apart from the lovely food, the service was exceptionally good and all done with a smile. Well done!!
Food and service was exceptional! The homemade Tiramisu was excellent! The vegan menu is outstanding as well. It's a bit of a noisy atmosphere but the food makes up for that. We will definitely come again when back in Dublin.
it was an ok italian restaurant but rather more that carried a few things that lingered a little, not all the meat had got the right preparation, and irish coffee cannot be recommended
We really enjoyed our meal at caverna the service was excellent and the food was delicious. The lady at reception was verythema friendly. We will definitely return.
Food was good but what stood out was the female host who is huge asset to that restaurant
It was outstanding. Service and food were top notch and we highly recommend it. Great experience and really good for a date night. Btw, they played classic 80’s music all night. Added bonus!
The main reason we booked the restaurant is because they had such a vast vegan menu. The rest of the menu was also very appetizing for the non vegan members. Food was fresh and very tasty indeed.
The staff were very welcoming and he service was excellent. Would definitely recommend.
Not great at all, not as per advertised pictures and staff not professional or particularly welcoming.
Won’t be returning or recommending.
The presentation of the food was lovely and there was a great variety of food to choose from, no limitations. From the starter to the dessert the food just melted in the mouth and the flavours were lovely. Staff were very courteous.
Loved the lasagna! Sit in the basement where the ambiance of the wine cellar is so nice.
Food and staff were very good, enjoyed it! Only down fall was annoying Americans who over exaggerate everything haha....
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
