Dublin Restaurants Named Amongst The Top 100 Italian Restaurants In Europe

Sarah Finnan

Dublin is a foodie haven.

In fact, there are so many places to choose from you could easily eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at a different place and avoid hitting the same place twice. For a considerable amount of time at least.

One cuisine that we have quite the affinity for? Italian.

And it turns out that we do it quite well as six Dublin restaurants have made it onto the Love Italian Life Awards top 100 list. Pretty impressive, no?

The list, compiled with a panel of Italian food experts, reviewed restaurants in over 20 different European cities. The Love Italian Life Awards, as you probably guessed, is dedicated to all things Italy and as industry leaders, their seal of approval goes a long way.

Comparing restaurants on the basis of quality, creativity and innovation in recipe development, presentation as well as wine pairing selections, it sounds like the dream job. Where do I sign up to be a taste tester?

Da Mimmo, Forno 500, I Monelli, Pinocchio, Rosa Madre and Terra Madre were revealed as being the cream of the crop when it comes to Italian feasting in the capital. Praised not only for their food, they also celebrate the best of Pastaland’s culture and history by being truly authentic to their roots.

All nominees in the category will proceed to the Love Italian Life 2019 Award ceremony which takes place in Dublin in November.
