    The food was expensive. A carbonara 22€ is too much. The recipee had too much pepper. I would’t recommended it.
    Bar Italia - DublinResponded today
    hi Marta thx for your visit. We do have here an original version of a Carbonara which we advise customers and indeed yourself that is quite peppery ( black pepper is an actual ingredient ) and we understand is not for everyone. We know around the world it s a dish that s been very heavily bastardized, but here we want to keep the tradition ! as for the price, i can see that u are from Spain and i go often to Spain and i can tell u that prices have risen dramatically there too. We offer table cloth and linen napkin, a nice welcoming place with professional mature waiters and a team of chef in order to deliver great quality food in a timely manner , so u need to take in consideration the all experience. thank you again David

    Absolutely lovely food! Pizza was light and didn’t make me feel too full. Carbonara was made traditionally without cream and was to die for. Asked to be sat away from the toilets and we were right next to them but it was very busy. Definitely would go back again!

Atmosphere in cosy and inviting, perfect for a date night or catch up with friends. Can’t stop raving about Bar Italia, definitely one of the best Italians in Dublin hands down!

    Bar Italia was busy, we arrived at 6pm for our booking. We were seated downstairs which is very nice, but small. The menu is also small and somewhat confusing, we felt there wasn’t much choice but what we ordered was wonderful. My daughter had the calamari to start. It was cooked in a garlic tomato sauce and served on rustic bread which was generous and delicious. I had the vegetarian pizza which included broccoli in it’s toppings - a first for me! My daughter had pasta arrabiata. Both mains were really good and filling. We both had cocktails and beer with our meals. Although not cheap, the bill was reasonable. Our waiters were excellent, charming and helpful. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will definitely go back (but next time I will ask when booking to sit upstairs as I felt we were missing out being downstairs). I would definitely recommend Bar Italia.

    There were traffic issues on route to the restaurant which resulted in us arriving 30 minutes late. Despite us calling in advance to notify the restaurant of the problem, the servers were quite rude to us as a result and our tardiness was mentioned more than once during our evening.

    Poor value for money. A disappointing experience compared to previous visits; my advice would be to avoid the special recommendations. What I received seemed to be a clear out of what was left in the kitchen; 45 mins from arrival to departure, two courses and a couple of drinks. My opinion- based on my experience- poor quality for the price.
