We were asked to leave the table after 75 minutes. No warning of this 75 minute booking rule for brunch when we booked/ made the reservation . Other tables were not asked to leave despite being there longer than us. We were not drinking alcohol and expect this is why we were asked to leave. We were actually going to order wine before the waiter informed us we had to vacate the table. We then went Elsewhere for a drink. Odd rule but seems to only apply to those who are not drinking cocktails!

I found for what I got it was far too expensive , calamari starter was a joke 3 small pieces on a bed of salad the calamari was tasteless , the pasta ragu dish was tasty but at 20€ not worth the price , I asked the waitress for Parmesan but she never bothered to come back ..

I would not choose to eat here again, neither of our meals was very good. Our food was over cooked and lacked any real flavor, extremely disappointed based on previous reviews.

Really friendly staff. I got the small antipasti, was massive, definitely for sharing! The frutti di mare pasta was amazing. If you're getting dessert, get the maltesers cheesecake, it'll change your life.

Brunch food was great but I think the popularity is ruining this place. A constant queue out the door of people waiting for tables. Even with a reservation we weren’t seated for a good 20 minutes as everyone had reservatations. This coupled with the difficulty of actually getting staff attention somewhat ruined our experience.

That being said the Maltesers cheesecake is amazing.

Cool environment and good service but the food was lacking.
We had a crab starter (a special on the night) which had a measly amount of crab, but moreso, which did not work as a combination with the other ingredients.
One main course was skatewing, again a special but unfortunately was nothing special and poorly presented.
The other dish was pork belly, which was overdone and the meat was dry.

We booked a table for 5 a few weeks in advance, I received a phone call on the morning of the dinner to confirm our booking of 5. When we arrived at the restaurant we were squeezed into a table for 4. One of our party had to sit sideways at the table, the staff would not give us a bigger table. This was very disappointing.

Arrived early but table ready. Had asked for quiet table as I’m partially deaf but this was not so. Table for 5 booked next to us but women made to squeeze into a table for 4. Staff friendly and attentive. Choice of food admirable and top notch .

Great little restaurant! Super busy, so I would recommend booking. We went for brunch. The food was tastey! Service was great. The only criticism would be, the avocado and poached egg dish, the under side of the toast was very very burnt, and therefore ruined the flavour of all the other ingridents. It was so busy and my friend had started to eat when she realised so we didn’t complain. Other than that the food was good, staff were friendly and atmosphere was fun.

Perfect Rib Eye Steak (one of the few places that haven’t compromised on quality). Excellent Crab Fettuccine- more crab than pasta; pasta clearly made on site, and got the thumbs up from the difficult to please Sicilian. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My favourite brunch spot in Dublin I've tried. Have tried most things on the menu by now and the pork belly hash is a favourite of mine along with the coco pops french toast as a dessert. It's a small bit pricey but worth it.

I have been at San Lorenzo a few times for brunch and every time I left satisfied!
The food is lovely, the service is good!
It is quite small, I would love seeing this place in a bigger area, maybe one day in the future.
