The portion sizes and quality of food that we ordered was really nice (pizzas, lamb, calamari, veal). The staff were a little unhelpful in that they didn't let us know about the specials that eveing and just pointed to the chalkboard when we enquired about deserts. It just came across as a little unpolite. Other than that we really enjoyed our meal there.

I have been to both the cafe and restaurant several times and would highly recommend it. The food is delicious and portions very generous - great value for money Service is excellent and the ambiance is wonderful! The covid measures and checks are also much appreciated. Thank you Il Caffe Di Napoli!

One of my favourite restaurants in Dublin-and they have even offered to make my favourite Italian dish Cannelloni, for my next visit-once I give them a few days notice-now that’s service!!

Overall very good as usual only slight criticism is that it was all too fast. Starters came really quick which was fine but main courses arrived literally 2 minutes after finishing starter so a bit rushed .

The whole experience was not great, we have ordered meat and cheese platter to share and there was plastic in the meat. Informed the waiter and he completely ignored us and packed the food away for us to take home (which was not requested)
Main course was left under the hot light before we even finished the starters. No salt in the pasta and the sauce for the chicken dish was so sweet.
The wine we order was the only thing we got to enjoy.
No Covid certs were asked on arrival.

For some reason, my booking had not reached the folks at the restaurant. All was well as there was a table for us, nicely positioned and spaced from others. It was soooo good to be back at Il Caffe Di Napoli after a long gap. The food was very good. My pasta with Monkfish was beautiful. I am still relishing my finale....the best affogato in town! Bravo to all the team.

Good range of choices of food from pizza and pasta to classic Italian dishes, Excellent wine list with a good selection of Italian regional wines, nice to have an opportunity to sample these less well known delights. Food was delicious, nobody had pizza but judging from the food we had I would expect that it would be a very superior pizza! Food was simply delicious, very authentic Italian ingredients and flavours and generous portions. Service was efficient and friendly, we were not rushed and able to enjoy the gentle relaxing quiet ambience and to converse with each other without having to shout to be heard over background noise which unfortunately is all too common,

When we arrived our table was a few minutes from being ready - we were served a lovely glass of Prosecco and given a seat to wait - only about 5 mins. The staff were chatty and friendly while we waited. When we ordered the food was delicious- the pizzas were really good and everything was piping hot and freshly made. Again the staff couldn’t have been nicer - attentive without being in your face. Will definitely be back

Had a lovely catch up with my family, whom I hadn't seen for over 2 years. The staff were very friendly, without being over-so and the food was (as always!) amazing. Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome, I've missed eating in Il Caffe Di Napoli and will definitely be back. :-)
