Welcome Back!

We are open every day, for lunch and dinner.


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.


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.

This award winning restaurant brings welcoming service to the heart of the city center...From the antipasti and small plates treats to the perfect coffee and home made pizza , everything about Bar Italia is 100% authentic...hitting the Mediterranean spot!
