A little bit of Italy, the real thing…
Paolo Tulio, Irish Independent
The minestrone soup can be memorable (always a great test), panini and pasta dishes are the business, and it’s a place worth seeking out for their espressos alone.
Georgina Campbell’s Ireland Guide
The minestrone soup is, without question, the best in Ireland, and the melt-on-your-tongue gnocchi is served in a few different sauces. People travel miles to have their coffee here and the house wines never let you down.
Fodor’s
The essence and charm of Bar Italia is that it is truly and uncompromisingly Italian. That night the quality of ingredients was beyond reproach. My bistecca Fiorentina, cooked exactly as I demanded, was a prime piece of tasty T-bone. Sibella’s prosciutto and rocket pizza, of godly size, was an absolute picture of freshness………honesty, authenticity and charm, I’m happy to give it my custom.
