OverviewL’Officina is another wonderful, quality Italian restaurant from the fantastic husband and wife team, Eileen Dunne and Stefano Crescenzi who brought us the eponymous Dunne and Crescenzi in Dublin’s city centre.
L’Officina occupies an excellent spot on the edge of the Dundrum Town Centre shopping centre, just along the water and with plenty of outside space covered with an awning.
L’Officina offers authentic Italian food made with quality Irish ingredients. With its lovely al fresco dining area by the pond, you’d think you were in Rome and not the leafy suburbs of South Dublin.
The inside space of L’Officina is bright and modern with an open kitchen and wall shelves filled with wine bottles. The overall effect is one of a more contemporary than rustic Italian eatery.
The food follows this contemporary styling with classic Italian cuisine given a modern twist with Irish ingredients. For example, at breakfast you can enjoy Amatriciana baked eggs in a tomato sauce with smoked pancetta, chilli, pecorino cheese and yogurt. For lunch you can treat your tastebuds to beef and pork ragù on egg tagliatelle with a slow cooked bolognese made with McLoughlin’s Butcher Irish beef and pork.
There is a super selection of Italian wines – red, white and sparkling – with plenty by the glass too. You can also have Italian beer and of course, Italian coffee.
Desserts are decedent Italian classics like tiramisu and gelato.
As for the staff, well, they are an enthusiastic and efficient team, knowledgeable and warm in equal measures. A winning combo.
At L’Officina, the mix of Irish produce and Italian recipes is a wonderful culinary marriage of two countries steeped in gourmet treasures.
When it comes to produce and products, each Dunne & Crescenzi restaurant sources as much as possible from small producers and suppliers in Ireland and in Italy.
