The corner directly opposite Toners on Baggot Street is now home to a beautiful new modern Italian cafe and restaurant by the name of Cirillo’s.
Cirillo’s offers authentic Italian antipasti, pasta dishes and wood-fired pizzas for lunch and dinner, with all their pasta, breads, pizza dough and ice creams made fresh in-house every day.
They also have a choice of regional Italian wines from boutique producers, as well as a menu of craft beers and Italian apertifs on the go.
Their seriously impressive pizza oven was imported from Naples and burns a blend of Irish oak and ash. They slow-prove the pizza dough for 30 hours using a recipe from the Cirillo’s Head Pizzaiolo, Luca.
Out of all the things on their menu, though, we’re most intrigued by their Pizza Carbonara which comes with mozzarella, egg, pecorino, guanciale & black pepper on top. Oh baby!
Cirillo’s is open on weekdays from 7.30am for coffee and pastries, lunch is served from 12pm to 3pm, and dinner is from 5pm ‘til late Monday through to Saturday.
Be sure to check it out this weekend!
