                                                Enjoyed the meal, service was enjoyable. Didn’t enjoy the Gorgonzola sauce with the steak, I think a more gravy or jus type sauce should have been served. Starter of cod croquettes was beautiful.

                                                Was an excellent option of restaurant to celebrate my husband’s birthday in a familiar atmosphere, we were there in the afternoon so, the time was ideal for sharing in a quiet space and enjoying the beautiful landscape. The only thing that I have to recommend, is about kids menu and cutlery options for them, which ones we didn’t have access, however the kindly sorted it out to enjoy the moment. I highly recommend this place.

                                                Had an amazing night here, food was lovely, the view of the sunset was amazing and the service was excellent, especially our waiter Rodrigo, he was so funny and made our night!

                                                Wonderful space and ambience. Pasta superb. Cod croquettes disappointingly bland with very little cod. Montepulciano a bit rough. Staff and service excellent.

                                                We booked dinner for 2 adults and 3 kids and had a dinner option that everyone loved. Between us, we opted for salami pizza, chicken Goujons, sea bass, lobster linguini and seafood pasta. Each one was totally delicious. Would highly recommend.

                                                Shashuka eggs were oily, poor quality ingredients and badly made. Dish arrived without the sourdough - asked for it twice and then received basic white bread (not sourdough). Chocolate sundaes were missing basic ingredients - no chocolate sauce, poorly put together and dried out brownie bits at the bottom.

                                                Food was great. 10/10. The male host was super friendly and very attentive. It seemed after our mains were done, we were forgotten about for the best part of an hour as the plates weren't cleared nor were we asked if it was ok , or if we wanted any more drinks, but I told our host and he rectified the situation with a complimentary drinks. As we weren't too happy about waiting that long just for plates to be cleared, doing this brought a good vibe back. To be fair, the place was extremely busy and there were only two staff allocated outside. So it looks a little understaffed. Too many people for two servers to give 5 star attention to. The fault here is with management. Also candles wouldn't go amiss outside. (side note: the first female host who first greeted us at the door mentioned we were a little early which was true so asked us to go get a drink and come back (meaning downstairs). I asked her if it was possible to have a drink at the bar they had at the restaurant as our table would only be a ten minute wait and she just said very simply no and didn't explain why, so I wasn't too impressed with that. The male host I mentioned above took over then)

Only suggestion I would make would be to get rid of the small smoking area in the roof garden. It was behind our table with a steady stream of people standing smoking right around us (we are non smokers and were eating at certain points

                                                Beautiful venue.. the staff were very attentive and when we were too hot with the heaters on they moved us. Food was lovely however the fried eggs on top of the burger were overdone and also with the croque madam. However it was all delicious and I’d definitely Italy come back if ever in Dublin again.

                                                Hi DonaF, Thank you so much for the review. Glad to hear the staff were tentative and I'm sorry to hear about the eggs. Generally the food is kept at a much higher standard and I assure you the next time you visit the food will be 100% fantastic. Best, Layla's GM

                                                Food reasonable. Service polite but some orders had to be requested several times. Staff do not appear to be allocated to tables and getting their attention is difficult. Having a 'Smoking Area' beside diners is unacceptable

                                                This isn’t a genuine Italian place. Food is mediocre at best. better off trying Gigi, an Italian place close by.

                                                The menu online is not the same as the menu in the restaurant. Staff are great. Very energetic place. Food is yum! Brought me another pizza, without me asking, when I inadvertently order a cheese free pizza (I like cheese on my pizza)😀
