Dunne & Crescenzi - South Frederick Street, Dublin 2

Dunne & Crescenzi has been around a long time now (well since 1999) and is a firm establishment on the Dublin dining scene. They've opened up various restaurants around the city and suburbs (see here for a previous review of L'Officina in Kildare Village) but we called to the well established South Frederick Street last Saturday.

Most people were basking outside on the footpath tables, but we opted for a table inside in the shade. I went for the tagliere del casa, a mixed platter of excellent quality cheese and meats, accompanied by honey, marmalade, some bread and rocket leaves (E13). He went for one of the specials, oriechette pasta with cream spinach sauce, bacon and parmesan (E14). I've never found D&C to be cheap, but the quality of food there is always excellent. You'd almost swear you were in Italy.

With one large bottle of sparkling water (E4), one espresso (E1.50) and one cappucino (E2.50) the total came to E35. BTW, D&C are supposed to have the best cappucino in Dublin (as noted by the Irish Times) and this one was damn good.
