“Little piece of Italy”
This restaurant is a little gem on Westmorland Street in Dublin. Ideally located just a short walk from Pearse Street Railway Station. Great place to catch up with friends.
The delicious food and wine is always consistent and staff create an atmosphere that is reminesant of my much loved holidays in Italy.
Cannot wait to return.

This is a little gem of a restaurant, myself and my Mam came to Il Caffe di Napoli after shopping one Thursday evening, when we arrived the guy in the restaurant downstairs told us they were fully booked but they made room for us upstairs in the cafe.
We were treated just as well as the diners downstairs, quick and efficiently and the staff were very friendly. I had the seafood ravioli and Mam had a risotto. The food was so tasty and flavoursome and the wine went very well with the meal.
I look forward to coming back for another meal, I'll be making a reservation though as they are always busy and the restaurant downstairs is fab.

“First visit but will definitively be back to this Gem”
Visited Caffe di Napoli for lunch earlier this week on the recommendation of a friend. It is 5 minutes from Pearse St Dart Station, so it is easily accessible to get you there & home on the train after a glass or two of wine.
Upstairs is more Caffe style & I had not realised there is a good sized restaurant area down stairs which is well designed with lots of natural light coming through from the windows in the roof - very unexpected and impressive. We had a leisurely lunch and the staff could not have been more friendly and they did not rush us. It was very busy for lunch so booking would be advisable. We were still there when people were starting to drift in for early evening dinner!
The menu has lots to choose from & is very suitable for vegetarians. There is also a good wine list.
Thoroughly enjoyed my first visit & I will be back again soon - really worth a visit for great Italian food and friendly & efficient service.

"My favourite restaurant"
It was culture night in town and there was only one last stop to make on the way home. My favourite restaurant. And my friends were very impressed. Full of warmth great atmosphere and the staff are so engaging. Not to mention the quality of food. Chef came out and sang some Italian songs which added to the evening. A nice way to end an evening of culture. This hidden gem is so popular booking is required in advance. Hope to have many evenings there before Christmas.

“Always delivers good Italian meals”
I have eaten here several times and always had good experiences. The wait staff are pleasant and attentive and informative about the menu. The restaurant is well laid out and spacious, though I particularly like the 2 person tables to the right of the stairs. Quieter and set away from the rest.
The food is nice and filling. Portion sizes are generally good. The pizzas, lasagna, meatballs and panfried chicken are all delish. The potato gratin side is a must order. Utterly delicious.
Can't wait to go back.

Last week on a cold Friday night my wife and I popped in this fantastic, authentic Italian restaurant. Fortunately we were early enough and we could get a table (but make sure you book your table to avoid any disappointment ;-) ). Professional, quick service, our waiter recommended a beautiful red wine for our meal, and my wife had just a four cheese pizza which she called the most amazing one ever!!

“Pleasant surprise! ”
A welcome find! Il Caffe di Napoli had a lovely atmosphere and it was very relaxing dining there, our table was booked for 8.15 and we ate leisurely until 11pm. I had the arancini for started, very tasty. The gnochi for mains I would definitely order again. The chocolate fondant though was an absolute must! One of the most delicious desserts I've ever tasted. Warm molten chocolate and homemade italian icecream to die for! Off the beaten track, but worth a visit.
