Rosa Madre

When you think of Italian food in Temple Bar you probably conjure up images of pizza slices at 4am.
Despite this area being pitched to tourists as the very best Dublin has to offer in terms of entertainment, food and general craic, the amount of times locals step onto the cobbled lanes with a purpose feels rare enough.

When was the last time you pinged a few friends in the Whatsapp group and said “let's go grab a bite in Temple Bar”?
My guess is never. And, as I’ve discovered a few times of late, that's a real shame.

The biggest shame of all is that you’d be missing out on one of the best little Italian restaurants in the city, Rosa Madre, which is tucked away on Crowe Lane.

Some of the tastiest seafood pasta can be found in Rosa Madre.

As soon as you step in the door you’re met at the door by a huge cabinet which is iced and packed full of fish and shellfish.

It’s a stunning venue, tucked away down the cobblestone streets of Temple Bar but inside it’s got a lot of character.
