I brought my big sister as a treat for her birthday. This was our first time and we both loved it. The staff were so kind and helpful . As we were seated we happened to say it was a treat for my sisters birthday to a lovely young lady and she later surprised my sister with a little cake and candles and had happy birthday played on the piano. Such a fabulous surprise. We will definitely be returning More

Italian | South City Centre, Dublin 2

It was a very nice dinner for my best friends birthday. The lights were a little too low and we could barely see what we were eating but I see the mood and vibe they were setting in the restaurant. The waitresses weren't all that attentive, however the manager or maître d' that was on duty the night of September 6, 2017 was great. He was very friendly and attentive to our needs as well as others. Kudos to him. He is the only reason I gave the service score a 4/5. The food was delicious and we over all had a great time. I would definitely recommend this spot for nice sit down dinners or date nights. More

Italian | South City Centre, Dublin 2

Caffé Parigi is the result of an ambitious and wonderful dream to create a Café (or Caffè – depending on who you are talking to) where one could believe one was on a corner in Paris or a backstreet of Milan without ever having to leave the country. To bring to Ireland the very best that France and Italy had to offer, and to provide good, simple and delicious food.

Our aim is to provide great food at affordable prices in a stylish environment. We know that these are easily found in the beautiful cities of Paris and Milan. Caffe Parigi lets you experience the French and Italian lifestyle right here in the beautiful city of Dublin too!More
