L'Officina translates as 'the workshop' and it was with this name in mind that Eileen, Stefano and David came to bring about the inception of its slightly more experimental establishments. With locations in both Dundrum Town Centre and Kildare Village, L'Officina stays alongside the cutting edge of fashion by supplying classic, traditional Italian dishes with a new twist.

Like the fashion around it, the highest quality can come at good prices - making this the perfect stop pre-, mid- or post-shopping. Prepare yourself for the day ahead with a coffee crafted to perfection by our highly skilled baristas and a late breakfast or brunch. Need something to help you maintain the stamina? Our pasta, risottos and panini combine wonderfully fresh ingredients and traditional recipes to prime you for the rest of the day.

New specials are imagined daily, reflecting the name 'the workshop' as our chefs use traditional techniques and recipes seasoned with a hint of artistry to deliver new twists on classics.

L'Officina, with its proximity to Movies @ Dundrum makes it ideal for grabbing a bite before or after the cinema - perfect for an evening's entertainment.

The staff were a little slow to bring our drinks and starters. However, once they arrived, the rest of the service was quick and efficient. The food was absolutely divine, some of the best pasta I have had in Dublin. I would definitely return in the future to sample the rest of this delicious menu.

We went to L’Officina on Friday night for a girl’s night. The food is excellent everyone was happy with their selection. The staff is friendly and efficient. It is one of the best restaurants in Dundrum and one we keep going back to. The total was 40 Euro ahead including tip, 2 bottles of wine and a couple of extra drinks very good value.

Atmosphere: ok...one room with lots of tables squashed in. Storage space is a problem as lots of crates stacked in front of service bar. No music playing! There is nice seating outside. Food: Average. Lasagne tasty if a bit too creamy. Bruchetta bland, topped with half ripe (orange) toms. "roast potatoe side" were more like baby pots boiled (in skins) with a splash of olive oil. bland; would make better myself. Wine: as usual in Ireland very overpriced, €19 for a non descript 2 star red house wine. General: Don't like their menu, which is confusing, pretentious (in italian) and has a lack of choice. They need to get their branding sorted out. Is it called L'Officina OR Dunne And Crescenzi?

I have given this place a bad review in the past but I am very happy to change my opinion and give them the credit they deserve for a really great lunch. The service was really excellent and the waiter was particularly good with my baby daughter - very patient and attentive. The food was great and as it was a lovely sunny day we were able to sit outside by the water. Absolutely perfect.

Service was excellent as always & the Gilligan's Beef in Balsamic Reduction melted in my mouth! My companion, a vegan, was patiently & politely dealt with. I have been here many times and will always come back. I just wish they would put the lamb back on the menu!

4 adults & 2 children had dinner on Sunday. We weren't impressed with quality of the food - everything very bland. We've eaten in South Frederick Street and food far superior. Won't be going back to Dundrum

My husband and I ate here on Friday night it was a lovely night great restaurant great wine and the food is gorgeous. We had bruschetta to start which was delicious for my main I had, tagliatelle with prawns in a pesto and pistachio sauce gorgeous well balanced flavours. My other half had the seafood pasta with pasta and his was delicious as well. We ordered a lovely bottle of Red which did push up the cost of the bill but there is a house wine at 15.00 Euro. We didn’t have dessert. I give this restaurant five stars we will be back.

I'm sorry to give this place a negative review but I wonder if they've changed their chef. I used to love the lasagne in this place (the one in town is always excellent) but the last couple of times I've been here it's been really disappointing! I forgave it the first time as it had been really busy and we were there for a late sitting but it was the same the next time - dry (the sauce was like tomato puree from a tube and there was no bechamel or cheese at all), bland and not what you would expect from lasagne priced at over €12 in an Italian restaurant. With plenty of other restaurant options in Dundrum I won't be going back here.

Two of us went for dinner to L’Officina, Dunne & Crescenzi at Dundrum Town Centre. We shared an anti pasta plate which was tasty. We ordered the mains as the anti pasta plate arrived. The mains arrived with no break after the starter as did the desert menus after our mains were finished. The risotto was ok it was fairly bland the parmigiana was ok. The bill with a bottle of wine came to €63. The meal felt rushed, mediocre and not great value.

As I work in Dundrum & eat lunch in the Centre regularly - a colleague and I had lunch in Dunne & Crescenzi recently. She ordered Lasagne and I ordered Minestrone soup - the soup was €5.50 or €7.50 with pasta added - i opted for the pasta version . The soup was no more than adequate and came with 3 or 4 strands of spaghettini. For €2 extra I certainly expected more pasta than that. The lasagne (€12.50) was dry and was served on its own - without salad garnish or bread. Overall both dishes were well below par if the price and to charge €2 for 3 or 4 strands of pasta was outrageous - it was the essence of meanness to charge extra for pasta in a minestrone!! Service was on the civil side of surly. My final message to D&C is up your game!

On reading the last 2 reviews, I was taken aback - I visited with my daughter on a Thursday night - we both had Lasagne with a side order of salad, the service was excellent and the lasagne was delicious. Along with a couple of glasses of wine the bill came in under 40 euro. Great value and a great night.
