Everything was great in Pacino's. My one and only issue was after I successfully reserved a table on Opentable I was told at Pacino's they never received it!! Apparently reservations done same day never get to them. Sounds like a common issue that hasnt been resolved. Fortunately, the host was able to get us a seat around the time we had planned.

Generally all ok but nothing special. No kids menu but kids size pizzas which were too big. Music was a bit all over the place with thumping house music (which I liked ) followed by endless jazz which sent me to sleep. Staff weren’t really that attentive. To be honest I’d probably go to Zizi a few fours down next time.

I absolutely love Pacino's and would happily choose it for lunch or dinner regularly when meeting up with friends. The food is amazing, the ambiance is lively and the staff are wonderful.

On our most recent visit on a Saturday evening we had a really lovely waitress looking after us - she was very attentive, chatty and brilliant for helping with menu choices (we couldn't decide!!).

The only problem appeared to be a "glitch" with our order so we ended up waiting an inordinate amount if time for our main courses to arrive. That being said the m'aitre d apologised profusely once the problem came to his attention and it was generously reflected in our bill.

Truth be told we enjoyed the food even more when it did arrive.

This is possibly best Italian place I have been to in all my time in Dublin. It is word every penny you spend.

Highly recommended items:

Spaghetti Pomodoro
Classic Pepperoni Pizza
Margarita Pizza
Mozzarella Frittata

My friends and I have already been here thrice in last one month.

We enjoyed our meal at Pacinos. We made a reservation through Open Table which they were unable to find when we arrived, so I had to show it to them on my app. Food was great but the service was a little slow. I would go there again.

Service was slow. Food was good but they messed up a meal and we received the wrong order. They did compensate us by giving us a complementary deserts. Would not hurry back though.

Delicious food! Lovely restaurant. Only criticism is that the door was open, with a hefty draft! I asked a waiter to close it and they agreed to but didnt! Had to wear my jacket! Otherwise lovely!

Perfectly good food in pleasant surroundings and decent service was marred by one thing. My partner ordered a calzone pizza and, whilst it was tasty and crisp, he was disappointed to find no egg inside as is usually the case. When the staff asked if we had enjoyed the meal he mentioned this. He was informed rather patronizingly that their chef is from Naples and he doesn't put an egg in calzone pizza. Well, we have had calzone pizza in Naples as well as many other places in Italy and elsewhere and always with an egg!

We were given free coffee to compensate for our disappointment and the meal was good in every other respect but we were left feeling as though we were treated as silly foreigners who didn't know what we were talking about. I would suggest that the staff look up calzone pizza on wikipedia as it confirms that it comes from Naples and usually contains an egg. If Pacino's choose to serve it without one they should mention this on the menu - perhaps offer to serve with the egg if the customer prefers. And don't treat the customer as a fool - it may be someone important!

Excellent food - very Italian flavours and early bird was really excellent value. Service was hit and miss but staff polite. Felt Management could make more of their fine premises - decor had a New Orleans vibe but food was Italian so confusing identity which takes somewhat from the overall ambiance - will likely go back and try again!

Four of us had a lovely meal here on Sat March 9th. The service was excellent and the food very good. I was particularly pleased with the Vegan menu and my vegan meal was delicious and well presented. In fact the reason I selected your restaurant was because if offered a Vegan menu. People like me are weary of having very little choice in Irish restaurants and often having to order a salad and chips!
A lovely experience. Location was also a factor in selecting the venue as it is very convenient just off Grafton Street. Thank you. Sinead Boland

It was an unexpected surprise. The food was off the charts delicious. The charcuterie board was sublime. Prosecco was served with a side of strawberries. It was a great last dinner in Dublin!

Had friends from US over. The staff were very welcoming and the ambiance was lovely. It was a very busy evening and the service was slow. The starter and main courses were good but the desserts were disappointing.

Food was good. Service needs work. Waitress took our order didn’t write it down and then brought wrong dish. Sat there for 20 minutes waiting while my family had their dinners. Maybe we just caught them on a bad night?

Overall of 4 stars because my first time here was Sunday and they were short in staff and service was very slow. Food only for brunch, it was OK and food taste very good, however after many recommendations, I will need to come back for dinner or lunch on Saturday to really know how the full menu is and taste, and hope they have more staff.

Great place with great food. Went back again this week. Only feedback was gnocchi ran out and we couldn’t order. But we did order on the 2nd trip and it was worth it.
