This is our third time using this restaurant for a family birthday and it was the most disappointing. The starters were good and the desserts also but the mains overall were disappointing. 3 if the party had the baked monkfish and it was boringly bland, saved only by the polenta chips and the sweet potato wedges. One person had the ravioli with spinach - nothing memorable at all about it. It is a child friendly space and our two youngsters behaved well because they were not too confined and we brought plenty of drawing materials to occupy them! But overall I would not rate this as one of our more enjoyable family dinners and especially as it was a celebration of two birthdays.

I love this restaurant. The food is fantastic and the staff are amazing. We were returning for our first year wedding anniversary and it was as special as it had been on the day. Already planning a return.

Really trendy restaurant. Cosy with good atmosphere. Nice house wine. Pasta was amazing, so fresh & tasty. Nice size portions. Starter of flatbread was enough to share & was so good. Will definitely be returning to try the pizzas which looked fab!!

From the moment we sat down our whole experience was amazing, our waitress was so lovely , my husband asked her if they sold one of the dressings , she organised it with the manager & gave us a parting gift of a bottle, he was thrilled !
The food was superb from stater to dessert , my main the ravioli was just mouthwatering . My husband had the steak with cabbage & delicious. Would highly recommend & can't wait to go back & try the pizza !

Gorgeous food, really wonderful service, and very accommodating to someone with a dairy allergy (which is quite unusual). It's a lovely restaurant too, with a nice relaxed atmosphere. The lemon and mint sorbet was the highlight, best sorbet I've ever had. Will definitely be going back!

Food was excellent - gem of a pizza. Service was prompt , especially important as we were heading to the local theatre straight after. Waitress was very pleasant. We changed our booking at the last minute from 2 people to 4 and it was no trouble. I would highly recommend it.

We were very disappointed with this restaurant. It was extremely noisy. We were seated close to the entrance on a cold night and there was a cold draught throughout the evening. I ordered a Tiramisu for dessert and asked for it with no icing sugar sprinkled on top. The waitress came back with a message from the chef saying that there is icing sugar in the Tiramisu. I found this very strange as it would make the Tiramisu sickly sweet. I therefore did not have a dessert. The use of icing sugar in the dessert is a very poor baking practice leading to very poor quality desserts.

The food was good but my only complaint was there was no salad options on the main menu. However, the chef responded with an option but while it was fine, it lacked imagination and any serious content.
Wine was excellent .

Thought the experience was excellent from start to finish. Lovely starter, pizza and one of the best tiramisu i’ve tried and that is many! Daughter loved her pizza and what seemed homemade ice cream was delicious.
Very good wine list covering a lot of Italy. Opted for a Nero do Troia which was lovely though feel it’s a tad expensive on the wine front but that’s just Dublin Restaurants on the whole.
Will definitely recommend and would go back again

Nice place - Loved the restaurant's interior and layout. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Food was very good in general. The beef tagliatelle was superb and the chorizo pizza was good but we have had better elsewhere in Dublin. The glowing press reviews maybe led us to have too high expectations but we will definitely return.

Great food with excellent pasta dishes. The spaghetti for the dish spaghetti with cockles were perfect. Gnocchi was light and airy, not stodgy nor heavy as found in many other restaurants. The pizza base was also delicious. Well done and we hope that the standard of cooking and service will be maintained .

A delightful venue hidden under a train station with inviting exterior and pleasant decoration. Only flaw was screaming children running amok, but they soon left and all was well.

We went for the Big Lucio for our table. Taster menu, it was just an incredible food experience. It takes 2.5 hours and it's a lot of food but it was so tasty. Great night and great service, highly recommended.

Excellent food and service
Nice to hear Italian accents, the cocktails were terrific
But it's the attention to detail that won it for me , the small detail of removing the salt and pepper before you serve dessert top marks

Ate her pre show in the Bord Gais, fabulous food, great atmosphere, and such a lovely walk down to the theatre afterwards. We started with the bruschetta, which was lovely and fresh, I had the gnocchi with a mushroom ragu which was delicious and my friend had the calzone pizza, again delicious but very large!
The service was fantastic, and I will definitely eat here again.
