Lived in Italy for six years and this place always reminds me of parts of Italy. The quality of ingredients makes it stand out

I come here often. It's a place I can come, on my own, and receive a warm welcome. This particular day I arrived with a headache and many of the worries of the world (or at least my world) on my shoulders. I ordered the Focaccia con Bufala and those worries were forgotten for awhile as I enjoyed the soothing combination of creamy mozarella and fresh pesto.

We haven't visited D&C for a few months and so we were pleasantly surprised that the restaurant has had a new lick of paint which makes it even more cosy. The staff are great and the food is top notch italian. I just wish that the pasta/risotto portions were bigger, they are just too small for my liking.

We love this place and the food is excellent. I would recommend going late after the main dinner crowd, as the service can be slow during busy periods. We've been here 4 times and for lunch as well. Each time we were not disappointed and for us the service was great.

Went here on a Sunday evening for my other halves birthday. We both went for early bird special menu which was good value. For starters we both got an antipasti plate which was massive (one would have done between two). It was tasty. Fo main I went for risotto and my boyfriend went for sausage casserole. Both were fine. Tirmasiu for dessert which was great. Unfortunately what let it down was service. Only 1 waiter and 1 waitress working. Our starters were near finished by the time we were served our wine which we ordered at the outset and asked for it twice thereafter. The antipasti plates were big so it wasn't as if we ate starters quickly. Pity as the red wine would have really complimented the cheese and meats.

We go here most weekends as a family and the food is always good, the staff are friendly and overall it is very enjoyable. The portion sizes could do with being a bit larger considering the price but it is a good safe bet!

Despite ALL the awards on the walls, and ALL the positive things we'd heard about the restaurant we were very disappointed. The service was very slow - from the time we waited to be seated, to being given menus, for our order to be taken, for the meals to come. The waiter apologised and said something about the kitchen being too small, and it being a busy night. We all thought that an odd comment to make. When our mains arrived two of us were served, then several minutes later the 3rd diner, then the 4th diner. Our squid ink pasta with prawns and baby mussels could have had less ink and more seafood while my husbands gnocchi bolognaise was served in such a sloppy manner it looked messy. The wine was delicious! I'm sure this place has a great reputation and is deserved of all the awards and accolades, maybe we just had a bad night :( which in itself is no excuse for a restaurant of this calibre. Not sure I'd get my husband to go back again, but I'd be willing to

The restaurant has a nice cosy appearance and is quite informal. The service was of a very poor quality overall however. We ordered a starter of bruschetta which is a simplistic dish to make. It arrived 1 hour and 15 minutes after the order. The only consolation was that we were not rushed out the door & had time to enjoy our bottle of wine. One of the waiters began to clear our table as we finished the starter! Another waiter asked what main course was ordered. This is approx. 90 minutes after we had first entered. Need I say any more?

The starter (Bruschetta) and Dessert (Tiramisu) were both excellent, but the main was a bit of a let down - squid ink pasta with seafood. It was dried pasta as opposed to freshly made and the whole thing was a bit dry in general & not that much seafood in it. We ordered a couple of sides as well - rosemary potatoes were fine, but the roasted vegetables were dripping in oil and were cut into such tiny strips that it was hard to tell what each individual vegetable was. I did like the wine and the service was good. Overall, I'd come back & give it another go, but would not choose that main again.

Visited this well known and established restaurant in Sandymount last night not having been there for a few years. First thing I have noticed is they have seriously cut the prices compared to before. Very friendly staff food was excellent good selection of pastas and salads. Their desserts and Italian ice cream are top notch as well. Only gripe as previously is some of the tables are more or less on top of each other so not a first date venue unless you want to hear your fellow diners conversations! Beware also of the clampers as well on the street outside the restaurant as pay and display is required up until 12 midnight and not 7pm like some adjoining streets! several people were caught last night.

I haven't been to Dunne & Crescenzi for over a year, after some bad experiences (we didn't get seated, we had to grab a table ourselves even though the restaurant was empty, the food took ages to be served, and the employees were cold and seemed very bored), so last night I decided to just go for a bottle of wine with the wife, thinking that it's impossible to mess up with just a quick drink... silly me! The wine was great, good value and all, so we decided to order a cheese platter.. It all started when the waitress didn't know what a cheese platter was, and we had to point to their own menu.. (OMG!) Then, after 30 minutes, I asked if the cheese platter was coming, she simple told me that "the kitchen is very busy, I can cancel the order for you?" which again showed no respect for us. Anyway, to cut a long story short; I am not impressed by their customer service at all, and should have stayed away. Don't get me wrong, the food (for what I can remember) is great, but management should either change their policies or change their staff.

I'm from the area, best restaurant in Sandymount by a mile. Very relaxed and casual feel to the place, however, the pasta is second to none. Go once a week, and have never been disappointed with the food or service!

Generally I love this place so I was disappointed with my most recent visit. The food was up to its usual high standard but unfortunately the atmosphere and service have reduced somewhat. It was cold ( I kept my coat on throughout the meal), very bright (not the usual cosy vibe) and the staff, who were new all new (since my last visit less than a month ago) were unengaging and distracted. I started with a bruschetta which was excellent and had the ragu which again was very good but regardless left feeling disappointed.

I love this place, good atmosphere, great food and excellent wine list. Also quite affordable considering the quality of the ingredients. To be honest tables are a bit cramped but I actually think it adds to the atmoshere funny enough. Parking is not usually a problem and staff are friendly. Favourite dish is the Tuscan sausage with Borlotti beans.
