LovinBox #6 - Il Primo


Every week with LovinBox we aim to bring you something new, vibrant and fresh and this week we think we've hit the nail on the head. Tucked away on Montague Street, Il Primo is one of Dublin's best and most authentic Italian restaurants. They focus on gorgeous flavoursome ingredients and their risotto is the stuff of legend. When Niall visited he proclaimed it "ridiculously simple and tasty", in short; real Italian food. To get in on the action, get your box here.


Il Primo Clare island organic Salmon salad with anchovy, crayfish, lemon alioli and orzo pasta pesto.
