    An unbelievable dinner at Rosa Madre, the food was exquisite and my international guests were beyond impressed - lost for words even! The staff, the presentation, the service, the attention to detail and the atmosphere was perfect and lovely touch having the head chef and owner, the charming Luca come around the tables to chat to customers. I can't wait to go back and sample more of the menu!

    Lovely ambience, great service, food was excellent but I thought the wines were very pricey. An extensive wine list but nothing for less than €42 and the only sparkling wine by the glass was champagne at €25…., too pricey!!

    Our experience was somewhat disappointing it started with lipstick on one of the wine glasses Our table only received one bread option while all other tables around us received two Potatoes were delivered when our meal was nearly over. We waited 20 minutes for our coffee Every time we moved a staff member offered us the bill even though we clearly weren’t ready to leave On a positive note the food was lovely It would be nice to see all tables receiving the same service

    Great food, fresh and high quality, imaginatively crafted and delicious. Limited thoughtful menus, very extensive wine list. Too pushy with wine service, felt the staff were on a mission to sell as much wine as possible.

    Not just the best Italian restaurant in Dublin, the best in Ireland and would sit comfortably amongst the very best in Italy! Service is impeccable, professional but with genuine warmth, the wine offering outstanding in every price range and the food…oh my the food. Every bite is crafted with extraordinary culinary care and screams the joy of the very finest produce. We were a large party of 12 but the experience remained personal and precise. Love this place. What a team.

    A little disappointed. Food was warm when served. When asked how everything was afterwards I disclosed this detail only to be told by the female manager (I assumed) the plates were probably not hot and that I should have said something earlier! Shocked at that response. Secondly, the risotto was a little stodgy and portion much too large being served on a large flat plate. In past in small bowl. Restaurant lacked a little personal service this time. I had hoped someone would wish my guests congratulations as just married and disclosed that detail when making the reservation. The Brazilian waiter was excellent though. Last time I went to restaurant it was superb! Maybe the restaurant has become a little blasé.

    A really nice night ... good food. Good service. Dublin prices but that's the way it is. Wine list is bananas .....Pages and pages of high end wines which no one other that the ultra rich would contemplate buying .. had a nice "house " Pino at €48 ... nice atmosphere and a bit of theatre around the service of some of the dishes a created at table ... all over a nice experience... thank you all

    Beautiful food in a lovely environment. Feels like a family-run, authentic restaurant. Flavours are lovely, portions are decent and the service is impeccable. The only downside is it's very expensive for what you get, but for a once off, it was a fab experience.

    Very disappointed with our meal tonight. The service was nice and friendly. Our starter was good both of us had scallops. The main course was really bad we both had supposedly pan fried sole which came out very quickly and it was completely raw in the middle. But for the price of €45 for the dish you would expect fresh fish and this one wasn’t it was blueberry and disgusting 🤮. Really not the fish restaurant they advertised. So disappointing. Wine list really long and ridiculous expensive some bottles of wine €3000 +. Our waitress recommended something more in our price range and she recommended a nice bottle of white to go with our fish 😂. Dessert was nice but overall experience disappointing definitely not going back there

    Starter was cold. Apparently reheated after refrigeration and unfortunately not properly heated because inside was still cold. The interior is dark and stuffy with old thick brown carpets.
