We had the most memorable italian dining experience at Al Boschetto. Despite the inclement weather the restaurant was cosy and intimate. We were served by Mersia whose husband Pasquale is the chef. She was friendly, witty and helpful in every way. My husband had the carrot & celery soup which was gorgeous. We both had Tagliolini Allo Scoglio for our... More

Two sporty sons devoured the plate of Antipasti for their starters. My starter was portion of smoked salmon with capers and salad. One son had pizza and the other chicken in a mushroom cream sauce with vegetables. We also had Aubergine baked with mozzarella and tomato sauce with chips. Our waitress was charming from Venice and was very quick to... More

Had a meal here on New Years night. All four of us enjoyed our starters and mains. Food was excellent and staff were very efficient. Thank you to the restaurant for the happy experience.

Went their with the family post Christmas, staff were very good and pizzas tasty but other parts of menu such as Pollo Saltimbocca were way overpriced and average. Choose the pizza and you won't be disappointed.

My colleagues and I visited here for lunch earlier this week and were pleased with the service and quality. I had heard about the restaurant before but had never tried it however I would certainly go back. 4 of us had pizzas which were excellent and another had sea bass which was also excellent. The prices are reasonable and the... More

We went here after a rugby match. The place was packed and there was a nice atmosphere. The pizzas and the pasta are good but not out of this world. €19 per pizza was totally ridiculous. All the staff are friendly and the location is good but for Italian food you are paying fancy French restaurant prices!

After attending 'The Bite' at the RDS on Sunday we found the Al Boschetto along the main road very convenient for lunch. We were given a warm welcome and seated in a quiet corner. The menus were brought quickly and we were prompty served our wine. Our traditional Spaghetti Bolognese was really tasty with a generous serving of Parmesan on... More
