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”.
