Bar Italia is the perfect place to enjoy flavours of Italy while taking in the beauty of Dublin city. Come inside and enjoy authentic dishes and genuine welcoming Italian service, or just sit with a glass of wine and a plate of antipasti and watch the world go by. Our Napoletana pizza with up to 48 hours fermented dough makes Bar Italia the must-visit Italian restaurant in Dublin city. We look forward to welcoming you very soon!

It was my first visit for early meal on a busy Sat. I was very impressed with the service, attention and the atmosphere in the restaurant. The food was authentic Italian at the higher end of the scale. Will definitely go back.

Lovely authentic Italian restaurant in the heart of the city. Nice views of the Liffey if you're lucky to get a window seat. Fabulous food and excellent service. We never had to ask for more water, the jugs were watched and replaced when empty. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

Food was great, place filled up. Service was not so great, even before it got busy they did not bring some ordered items without being asked where they were. As it got busy, the service got worse.
Loved the food, just not the service.

We visited as a family of 4 2 adults , 2 young children at lunchtime. We all had pizza and dessert and 2 glasses of wine. Food was excellent, full of flavour and carefully presented. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We also bought a bottle of the extra virgin olive oil that is used in the restaurant. We hope to return some time in the future.

The food had great flavor but should have been served hot. The risotto was delicious but barely warm. Wonderful atmosphere and nice wine list. Very busy place. I’d return.

The food was tasty but not something special. Tiramisu was far away from traditional recipe. I was very disappointed. The environment was pleasant. The service was very good.

The food and service were excellent. The menu was not extensive, but there were plenty of wonderful sounding dishes from which to choose. We were seated downstairs, which was significantly quieter and less busy than the main dining/bar area at street level. One of the main benefits was that our server was very attentive and accommodated our requests. Yes, we'd recommend Bar Italia to friends (and even friends-to-be).

The food was absolutely outstanding! You would have no idea you were eating in the heart of Dublin, it felt as if we were in Italy. The burrata with prosciutto was to die for (make sure you get it with the focaccia!) There was an extensive wine list with reasonable prices, and the entrees were just as delicious as the appetizer, perfect after a long day of traveling. On top of this, the service was impeccable. The owner introduced himself to us and really made us feel welcome. He engaged in a very long conversation with my dad about wine and treated us to complementary aperitifs. It was the perfect end to our trip in Dublin. A relaxing dinner with great food and amazing service. Wish I could go back every night!

I already wrote a very positive review of Bar Italia a few weeks ago and the high standards I experienced then were repeated on my most recent visit, this time with a party of four on a Saturday evening. It's a place to come to again and again.
