We were delighted to return to our favourite restaurant last night where we received a warm welcome. The food and drinks were incredible as always, as was the service.

Food is very expensive for the amount and quality that they offer. Menu is pretty basic I guess because of the Covid time we are now, but still doesn't justify the price.

Chicken salad main was very bland - didn't finish it (nor did my friend his). Calamari starter was rubbery. Setting very nice, service very professional and friendly.

We had such a lovely evening. The food was great, decent portion sizes & very tasty! Service was excellent too with a really friendly vibe. Everything is reasonably priced which made for a fairly perfect evening. Marco (our waiter) was a real character, very chatty & made us laugh...a lot! 😄
If I had one small change to make, it would be a little more sponge & a little less Cream/Mascarpone in the Tiramisu....but that might just reflect my personal preference. All in all I would give Bar Italia 10/10 and we’ll definitely be back! 👍

Went there for my anniversary and the staff were so friendly and helpful. They made myself and my partner feel very welcome. When it came to our dessert they brought it out with a sparkler on it and wished us both a happy anniversary. The food was amazing and the service really topped the whole night. Would definitely return again.

Exemplary food and service. We were treated like royalty. They have completely adapted to covid and given something to thoroughly relish in, as if we were back before lockdown ever existed. If you are worried about a wet and rainy day for outdoor seating rest assured this will not spoil your meal whatsoever you are completely covered during your meal, we arrived on a day of torrential rain and were still bone dry after our meal. The staff are so welcoming, friendly and genuinely good natured. I would highly recommend this fantastic restaurant. Marko our waiter was absolutely fantastic and I could not sing his praises enough. A genuinely beautiful experience and I will 100% be returning in the near future. And the dessert wine! Omg was melt in my mouth amazing. Steak cooked to perfection like jelly. I could not fault one part of my meal from start to finish. Grazie mille Marko and co!

Outdoor dining here was super. It’s sort of enclosed. Good protection from the Irish weather with heat.

Great selection of authentic Italian food.

Cater really well here for celiacs. They offer gluten free pizzas and pasta as well as some of their dishes being gluten free.

I will be back.

Service and staff were brilliant, really nice.
Food wise however there was some issues. 2 of the 4 main courses we ordered were very very salty. One of our group couldn't eat more that a third of the plate.
The starters were really nice.
The wine was served in a bucket of ice but the bottle itself wasn't actually cold which was disappointing for a €44 bottle of wine.

The service was fantastic. It is quite an expensive restaurant but I understand that this is because they use the best ingredients. My food was delicious however my partners pizza was quite greasy and perhaps not enough cheese. My wine, although it was a small small portion, was delicious. They didn’t have many options for people who don’t drink wine and I also found that the menu was largely reduced. Again I understand that this is because of Covid and they don’t have the same amount of business that they would during regular times. Overall a pleasant experience.
