Get a table upstairs if you can. Beautiful view of the harbour complements the perfectly cooked pasta dishes. And make sure to get the dessert - the best dessert I have had in my life. Great service and the food makes this a 5 star review.

I love the food here, it’s really good, the waiters are amazing! They could not be any friendlier or welcoming. The desserts are the best though. Great in winter or in summer they’ve a cute little terrace. They normally have beautiful views over the seafront too. It’s currently blacked by railings while the Dun Laoghaire baths are being renovated, but will be back to normal soon, so ask to be seated upstairs at the window.

Very good. Amazing authentic Italian food, brilliant thin crust pizzas and will not leave you hungry. Indulgent desserts. Company was poor but I guess that was my fault so I won't blame the restaurant. Great setting

This place is as great as ever. The food is exceptionally good. Service is fast and although busy the place isnt too overly crowded or noisy. The prices are also very fair for the wonderful food (particularly pizzas). Cant wait to return.

We had a wonderful Lunch there one Sunny afternoon. We were given a beautiful table upstairs with a great view. A High Chair was provided for our daughter and the staff were extremely accommodating. Most importantly, the food was delicious. Would highly recommend!

Delicious, fresh food and friendly service. The pasta in particular was amazing! They also boast an extensive wine list and cocktail options, everything you could want for a lovely evening. We visited toscana on a Monday evening and it was quiet and relaxing. The food was exceptional and the service was excellent. Every part of the meal was perfection down to every detail including the baileys coffee! Will be returning again very soon, would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Toscana is without a doubt my favorite restaurant in Dublin. The staff are incredibly attentive and friendly. Myself and my girlfriend always look forward to visiting and whenever we do the team always greets us with a warm welcome and even remembers our order! Thank you to everyone in the Toscana Sandycove restaurant for everything you do. 🙂 The food is consistently delicious and staff are always very friendly. If I could give it 10 stars I would!

Classic Italian, well located on the Dun Laoghaire waterfront.The upstairs window seat has great view over Scotsman's Bay, and is always in demand.Pastas and Pizzas very good, but many other options on menu.

A nice and reasonably priced restaurant offering pizza, pasta and meat dishes which is on the front in Dun Laoghaire and which has fantastic views over the bay.

One of my favourite Dun Laoghaire restaurants. Lovely rooms, seaview from upstairs. At sunset this time. One salmon with lovely creamy sauce and chips. One trout fillet ditto chips. Had a carafe of white. Should have had a slightly more expensive bottle and left some behind. Carafe wine a bit too acidic. We made a table for three into a very comfortable table for two. Our Hungarian waiter was very attentive when necessary. But we were given the indulgence of time for a long chat after the food. The staff are always attentive and laid back Italian style. The food is consistently good with a big enough choice that you can visit several times without the menu becoming too familiar for interest.

“I have visited many restaurants in Dun Laoghaire but toscana restaurant is definitely my favourite one by far. The staff are fantastic and the food is amazing”

“What a beautiful restaurant, everything about my trip to Dun Laoghaire makes me want to go and live there. I see now why Bono and other music movie stars love this part of the world. Toscana was amazing— food, service, atmosphere, view!!! STRONGLY recommended to anyone visiting Dublin, go see Dun Laoghaire, have a walk and visit Toscana, its close to the Pier where everyone goes walking”

“Great friendly staff who remember you when you arrive. Food portions are really big, focus on seafood and steak. Everything on the menu sounds great. Recently updated the selection and there’s way more choice than before. they took the crab claws off though, and they were my favourite, so I was disappointed. But then they managed to find some from somewhere. That’s service!”
