                                                        Amazing food, fabulous atmosphere and they went all out to give my mom a birthday celebration she’ll never forget! Pretty much a fireworks display in her dessert!!!

                                                        Wine and food overpriced in our estimation. Lots to praise though regarding ambience and service. Recommending for a special occasion maybe.

                                                        There were some great dishes and others didn't meet expectations that were high from previous visits.

                                                        For me this is the best restaurant in Dublin. It's a restaurant for special ocassion. High prices in exchange for high quality. Clean and nice environment, superb food, attentive staff willing to cater for special diets.

                                                        We read a couple of reviews and decided to try as we love fish and Italian food. The restaurant has quite a retro feeling, we were seated upstairs and could see the fresh fish and lobsters in the tanks below . We ordered Galway bay oysters and champagne - all delicious , fill by the clam and blue lobster pasta - both really good. Lovely Sicilian (Etna) wine by the glass which was a treat. Very good wine list. No room for dessert Waiting staff anxious to please

                                                        Wine was great, unfortunately the food had to be sent back and was told the kitchen was closed so there was nothing else I could eat/order. Never had such a horrific service like that, shocked by the work ethic of the kitchen staff and the way they treat the waiting staff. It’s an absolute disgrace.

                                                        Amazing food. Starters very expensive but delicious, main course and dessert excellent and the wine list is very over priced. Enjoyed the night but our table was very near the entrance, therefore a lot of movement and noise from phone and staff being directed, which didn’t add to the atmosphere.

                                                        Rosa Madre is probably the best Italian restaurant in Dublin. The menu is tight ensuring that everything is turning over quickly and that everything which is served is super fresh. I had the gratinated scallops and sea bass baked in salt crust, both of which are excellent. In contrast to the food menu, the wine list is massive with some very expensive options but lots of good options at around the €30 mark. The dining space is very comfortable and atmospheric. Luca is a very welcoming host and he is supported by very attentive and professional staff.

                                                        Gorgeous restaurant, the food really was excellent. We had oysters that were huge, served ice cold. The crab tar tar was so soft and fresh. We had the lobster pasta, the pasta was light and soft and there was plenty of lobster the sauce was delicious. We also had the salt bakedcseabass which was divine. The waitress choose a wine pairing for us which was perfect. Overall the service was impeccable and I couldn't recommend it more especially if you enjoy high quality seafood.

                                                        We discovered Rosa Madre pasta during lockdown and now don't buy any other pasta. We were looking forward to trying the restaurant and were not disappointed. Beautiful restaurant, friendly and attentive staff and super tasty food. We made another booking when leaving.
