Love it! The only words I can say about it. Tucked away on Chatham Lane, it is never the first idea that springs to mind when you think off an Italian restaurant in Dublin.
Amazing food at a decent price not to mention the authentic Italian layout and vino bar. The staff are uber friendly and really has the feel of an il ristorante Italiano.
I enjoyed a tasty Monday night dinner here with my beau
We both ate the steak dinner special and shared the antipasto as a starter.
Everything was served in a timely manner, prepared appropriately, and tasty to every satisfaction!
Weekly specials advertised (pizza, chicken, and steak main dishes) or the regular menu is in full swing as you might prefer.
We both took the recommendation from the chef to try his steak with a white wine cream sauce. The steak was then topped with mushrooms and lemon. Yum! The main dishes are served with a choice of chips, salad, or pasta. Being in an Italian restaurant, I just couldn't turn down the pasta. I also love carbs- no shame!
The pasta and tomato sauce were just enough to satiate my caving without leaving me too over stuffed. I thought my steak was cooked to perfection (med rare) and the sauce was to die for. I would've licked my plate clean, but I do put forth lady-like manners in public. :)
I saw several good-looking pizzas go around the restaurant and the fresh Italian aromas filled the restaurant all night.
I felt looked after and treated like regulars (even on our first visit). The staff are friendly, polite, and willing to chat if you fancy a chat (on a slower part of the night of course).
If you want to travel back to 1982 visit this pizza restaurant. I don't believe the décor or menu has changed in all that time, and why would it? It's got the perfect kitschy Italian appeal. Italian and Italian American tracks played on the stereo, red and white check table cloths, candles in chianti bottles and the name!
I first read about this place in a Come Here to Me article*, apparently it's the oldest operational pizza place. I was intrigued so I ventured out one freezing cold Tuesday evening with my boyfriend. It was surprisingly busy for a Tuesday so I'd say it does a good amount of business. The service was attentive, the pizza was delicious and the prices were decent. I wouldn't say there's anything outstanding about this place, everything is quite average but I'd recommend it just for the historic value alone.
Pizzas are good albeit a bit heavy handed on the flour.
Decor is kitchy and cosy!
Staff are bit scattered and service is a bit hit and miss.
Price is about std: for 2 12 inch pizzas and half caraffe of house white the bill came to 39.27.
Don't get me wrong I like the place but I did find the management a bit surly. I'm not enamoured with their house white selection but hey you get what you pay for. Are there better places yes but it's a - ok too.
Checkered tablecloths, Italian staff, bustling with people - Pizza Stop is a pretty good Italian restuarant. It's a favourite with lots of my friends. As you'd guess from the name, it's speciality is pizza and they're very good. They're great value too, with the most expensive coming in at about €12. I had the meatballs last time I was there & they weren't great, so think I'll stick to the pizzas from now on.
Great for a midweek bite with friends.
Hands down the best pizza in Dublin. It's a shame that the manager or owner here isn't the nicest.
I was told to come here by my boyfriend's old boss who used to work here and had been a professional waiter for years. He booked me and my boyfriend a table and told us that if we used his name, we would get the special treatment. But instead, we got hastily ushered to our table and someone shoved a menu into our hands. It was pretty aggressive.
Apart from the less-than perfect welcome, the rest of the night went well. It's hard to be grumpy when you have a beautiful cheese pie in front of you. I recommend the pizza with anchovies and a bottle of red wine. The food alone makes this place a winner.
This is one of my favourite places in Dublin to eat pizza, or even to eat Italian. It's a really authentic Italian - Italian waiters, owned by and Italian and it almost feels like you're in Lake Garda or somewhere.
They're bruschetta is delicious and I can never resist the Isabella Rossellini or Show pizza, it's delicious. Really thin base, which I love.
It's quite cheap too - the pizzas are around €11 and the pasta dishes are around €10. There are 10 different pasta dishes to choose form, so between the pizza, pasta and main courses, you are pretty spoilt for choice!
This place is easily missed though - it's down the lane directly opposite Steps of Rome.
If you want to experience the true flavour and texture of an Italian pizza, this is the place. My favourite is the Napoletana, dough cooked thin with a hint of crispiness and a base topping of oregano scented tomato paste and mozarella and then the real deal, capers and anchovies. Not to everyone's taste, I'll admit but when I get it, I ask for extra garlic and chilli and it sings, sweeter than Andrea Bocelli.
Great Pizza! would definitely recommend! Prices are fantastic an staff are very friendly. good if you want a quick bite before hitting the shops!!!
Canned minestrone, good crust, but a poor example of a margherita pizza. BIG downside was downer atmosphere created by staff and owner.
This is the perfect restaurant for a nice, quiet meal with your partner/friends. It is has a real italian authentic feel about it, with dimmed lights, candles on the tables and red and white checked table cloths. The pizzas are really tasty too! They are nice and light so you dont feel really stuffed afterwards, and you still have room for dessert! It is never overcrowded and the staff are really friendly! :)
