  • One of the brightest gems on the Dublin dining scene, Dunne & Crescenzi offers the most authentic Italian experience. The charming Italian staff - from the baristas to the chefs, prepare dishes using the highest quality produce – both Italian artisan ingredients and local produce in support of Irish farmers. They also offer a carefully selected wine list with over 150 labels from all over Italy.

    The owners, Eileen and Stefano, first met in Rome and their passion for Italian food, wine and culture carried them over to Dublin. This passion really shines through in their menus, which include fillet of Gilligan’s Irish Hereford beef with rocket pesto and Grana Trentino petals, as well as Panzerotti ravioli with ricotta & spinach with cherry tomato confit and Grana Trentino DOP fonduta. The seafood at Dunne & Crescenzi is also a real winner - try the monkfish from Doran’s with tomatoes, olives, caper crumbs and fresh spinach leaves.

    With a number of locations throughout Dublin and a restaurant in Kildare Retail Village, pay a visit to Dunne & Crescenzi to experience for yourself the welcoming atmosphere and taste the food that, according to food writer Tom Doorley, “changed the way the Irish eat”.

  • There are only a couple of artisan wood fired oven manufacturers left in Naples. We found the best – a fourth generation Neapolitan oven manufacturer. It took nine months to convince the Fererra family and their team of Artisans to leave their factory in Naples to make their very first fixed oven in Ireland. Nine tonne pallets of original materials were shipped into Dublin in anticipation of their arrival. Brick-by-brick from the ground up, a team of artisan oven builders brought ancient style of oven building using Old World Neapolitan techniques to Dublin.

    Taking ten days to construct, Santa Maria bricks from Campania were used in the walls and dome, the cooking surface is Biscotto di Sorrento and all of this is packed together with mortar made from volcanic ash from Mount Vesuvius. Says Mr Fererra “This is not a prefabbed oven, this is an ancient style Forno (oven) that we built using old world Neapolitan techniques, passed down from my great-grandfather. We locked all workers out during the oven building process so that we could protect our local secrets. I first built ovens with my grandfather when I was just 13 years old, today my son and I carry on this ancient tradition. To this day our ovens routinely maintains daily dome temperatures of 500°C and our ovens can be found fixed in the best street pizzerias of Naples”.

    Forno 500°’s Restaurant, Bar and Pizzeria is situated on Dame Street, sandwiched between the Olympia theatre and Brogan’s Bar. It is in a beautiful warm space formerly known as Les Feres Jacques. Now completely transformed it houses the first fixed bespoke Neapolitan wood burning oven in Ireland. Using genuine top quality ingredients imported from Naples. The new restaurant in Dublin is now a two story eatery serving the classic soft Pizza di Napoli and fresh pastas.

  • The "dream" began with the desire to bring pizza perfection from Italy to Ireland to satisfy the increasingly discerning palates of Irish customers. In 1995 the dream turned into reality with the opening of the first Milano restaurant in Dawson Street, Dublin.

    Dublin had never experienced such pizza perfection before! The first Milano soon became a favourite due to its relaxed and sociable atmosphere as well as for its fabulous pizzas and salads. The restaurant was frequently mentioned as a favourite meeting place of several modern Irish writers and artists.

    The demand for pizza perfection grew and Milano restaurants, each with their own distinctive personalities and styles, opened in Temple Bar, Cork, Galway, Limerick, at the IFSC in Dublin, Dundrum new town centre and at Grand Canal Harbour.

    New Milano restaurants have been springing up for the last few years. The most recent Milanos have opened at Haddington Road and Ranelagh in Dublin, as well as in Ennis and Killarney. These are set to become firm favourites with local workers and residents as well as tourists.

  • Sano simply translates to healthy.

    The idea for Sano came about after the MacHugh twin brothers visited Naples. All pizzas in Naples are made the Neapolitan way, using sourdough for the base, and cooked in traditional stone ovens at 500 degrees. Not only were these pizzas delicious, they had the added benefit of a much lower salt content, a lot less than the traditional pizza bases we are all used to. The other thing that struck the twins was how affordable the pizzas were – everywhere they went in Naples, the pizzerias were jammed packed with friends & families, all out enjoying fine food at affordable prices. Thereafter they set off to open a Neapolitan pizzeria in Dublin, sourced traditional stone ovens and purchased two direct from the manufacturer in the heart of Naples. Not long after, they found a suitable site and transformed it into Sano Pizza.

    Their goal is to serve the customers the finest Neapolitan Pizzas, at an affordable cost, along with competitive cost for drinks, sides and desserts, ensuring everyone can afford to visit and enjoy Sano.

    At Sano Pizza our Neapolitan Pizza is a softer style pizza, its chewy crusts and delicious flavours make is stand out from the crowd. Our dough is made on site daily using only 4 ingredients: flour, water, salt and yeast, and fermented for a minimum of 48 hours. Our pizzas are then stretched by hand, topped with authentic Italian ingredients and cooked for less than 90 seconds at 500°c in our beautiful ovens, all the way from Naples.
