My wife had the risotto which was very good but served on a cold plate which meant it was cold before finishing.

Probably the best restaurant we've been to in Dublin (and that's coming from someone who doesn't like seafood). The seafood lover was exceptionally happy and I really enjoyed the vegetarian options (that might be an understatement) 😁 the desserts weren't too sweet, but, from what we experienced in Italy, very authentic ❤️

The proposed menu (foods and prices) are different from the menu showed in OpenTable when you book the table online! So we paid more and we didn't find the dishes we wanted. Anyway food and service was good, as always.

First time to visit this restaurant, obviously the menu has been shortened because of the times we are living in but there is still lots of choice to cater for everyone's needs. Fish is the main attraction here, fresh and fabulous. The restaurant is very well set up and there is a lot of space between each table. The staff were really helpful and friendly. This was a birthday treat and it was money well spent.

We really enjoyed our visit to Rosa Madre. The food was mostly excellent, and the service and attention given to us as diners was also very good. There was a mix up in the kitchen that meant our food was quite heavily delayed getting to us, but the staff made up for this by taking some of the items off the bill and making sure we were being looked after. I would definitely like to go back and sample more of the menu.

A pasta dish—spaghetti vongole, and gnocchi with shrimp were almost inedible. A third person who had fresh fish was quite pleased.

This is the only restaurant in Dublin I can have fresh fish and feel like I’m on holiday!
The food here is exquisite and the service and attention to detail is great.
Upbeat, friendly warming and engaging staff.
