Pizza Bar
We decided that there were enough FANTASTIC pizza joints serving extraordinary Neapolitan pies, and that, actually, we wanted something a little easier to share, a little easier to pick up (as you wander onto the roof with a cocktail) and a little crisper. We didn't want a base quite as crispy as a Roma pie and so, after Ian Connolly, our executive chef returned from a stint training in a pizza academy in Lazio, along with his chief pizza maker, we realised the style we were after was an 'Italiano' base - softer than a Roma, but cooked at the same temperature, with a Neapolitan style crust. The closest in style would be a New York pizza which was brought from Napoli and adapted to American tastes, so as to create a pick-able up-able slice. The toppings are inspired by Ian's trip to Lazio but with lots of Irish & American influences also. We hope to do lots of 'pizza parties' with 20/25 quid a head menus, including starters, pizzas, salads and desserts, very accessible prices we think!

Distancing is not being respected in this restaurant. Tables are really close to each other. Menus are not digital.. food was not amazing

Such a great set up for outdoor dining - very cosy! I’ve been twice in the last few weeks. Lovely food and delicious cocktails! I’ve already recommended it to some friends! Only thing was one of my friends were gluten free and there was a limited menu for her.

Good food, great service, pity about the added service charge, I’d usually tip cash anyway, it was defiantly worth the service charge however,

The staff were generally very nice, expect for the person who served our table, which is why I scored low. They could have been having an off day or be having personal issues so I'm hesitant to let this one person's demeanor defer others from going, so just I'll pop it here as an FYI

It's a cool spot right in the middle of Dublin yet tucked away on the roof of the building. Great ambience up there and convenient to be central yet relatively private.

We went here for my boyfriend’s birthday. Staff were friendly, the food was excellent, and there was a great atmosphere. Unfortunately, they had none of the lemonades left, which was a bit disappointing as I am a non-drinker, but my fellow diners were happy with the drinks options. I had hoped that since I had mentioned in the booking that it was my boyfriend’s birthday and had requested that they put a candle in his pizza (he’s not a dessert person) that they would have acknowledged it, but they did not - just a note for anyone who might be thinking the same!

Really nice spot, was a beautiful day so we sat outside which was really nicely decorated. Food was yum, spicy pepperoni and ask for a side of fries as they’re not on the menu but yum. Overall really good - if you’re a beer drinker there isn’t a lot of choice

The place was very crowded and loud, we got a table for two but we had to sit next to each other because there was a leak from the roof. The food was OK. Very quick service though.

Nice place you would really notice was there unless you where told it was there.It has a great view of the Liffey from upstairs.Pizzas are very nice really good well made.The chips are huge as well and really nice.The only issue I had with this place was the drinks menu is very limited on choice and is completely different to what is offered on the menu online.

A waitress kept moving chairs around which scraped off the floor really noisily...we had to stop talking as it was so loud and screechy we couldn't hear each other....even glancing at her she didn't seem to get the hint to stop doing that.

Brill, love it! Only issue was some of the advertised drinks online weren't available on the night we were there which left two of the girls without an option (but am guessing COVID orders are to blame here) staff fab and attentive - thank you :)
