Situated in the lively Temple Bar area is Frankie Dettori’s and Marco Pierre White’s restaurant. This Italian restaurant was a little dark when we entered but I think that we got accustomed to the lighting.
The waiter recommended a pineapple and coconut non-alcoholic cocktail and this did not disappoint. It was quite a rich drink but a great start to the meal.
The aubergine parmigiana was a few slices of aubergine baked with cheese and a tomato sauce. The aubergine was sliced lengthways which meant that it was quite a tasty substantial meal. A great side dish was the spinach with chilli and garlic. The spinach was cooked perfectly and it was not spicy, which is what I preferred.
We made sure that we had room for dessert. The New York cheesecake was very fresh and it was big enough to for two people. The biscuit base was quite thick which made the cheesecake even more yummy. The tiramisu was presented in a martini glass and you could taste the quality ingredients.
The walls are decorated with cartoon like pictures of various people. The staff were really friendly and when we asked if we could have a different table to the one we were originally seated at, they happily let us move. They also didn’t rush us when it was closing time for the restaurant. The service was efficient and the staff knew the menu well.
