About The Italian Kitchen
The Italian Kitchen is an AA Rosette award-winning Italian restaurant located at Clayton Hotel Dublin Airport. Our aim is to provide our guests with an authentic Italian dining using the best ingredients. The secret to the authentic flavours and aromas in The Italian Kitchen is Head Chef’s insistence on genuine Italian ingredients and fresh local produce.
Our menus are a tour of culinary Italy, taking in several classic regional dishes and some less well-known specialities. We specialise in wood-fired pizzas, traditional pasta, seafood dishes and homemade desserts. And of course, the other gift from Italy’s regions is the exquisite range of wines on offer, most of which are represented in The Italian Kitchen’s well-stocked cellar.
Many restaurants know how to provide a welcome but we know how to make people feel special, how to ensure that our guests’ experience is beyond expectations. We know the story behind each dish and its taste. The Italian Kitchen goes straight to the heart of the Italian dining experience by focusing on ingredients, recipes, atmosphere and hospitality.
Exceptional food, and exceptionally friendly staff. Would not be out of place in the city centre as a too notch dining experience, never mind an airport hotel!
How fortunate you are with your staff. They are attentive without being intrusive. One waiter remembered our being there a year ago, and the wine we drank and what table we sat at! We were greatly impressed. It was busy but the food came quite quickly. Great pizzas! Great restorative space - one lot of us had been flying from the West coast of California for hours, and were on their way to Connemara, and we had travelled from the north in a storm to meet them. The Italian kitchen made it possible.
Thank you very much. Food and service was excellent. Would recommend to a friend. Compliments to the staff and chefs and cook and indeed at involved in The Italian Kitchen Seamus...……………..
We totally enjoyed our experience at the Italian restaurant. We were staying at the hotel prior to flying the next day. The menu choice was great for both adults and kids and priced well! My son is coeliac and they had plenty of options including gluten free pasta.My daughters had the pizzas which were divine ( We all had a taste) The food was delicious! It was New Years Eve and it was very busy there but the service was fasntatic! We will definetly return!! We had booked a table and were glad as there were people waiting ( but that might have been to do with the fact that it was New years eve.)
Service & Food was excellent.
We had a delicious meal on Friday night in the Italian restaurant. The service was excellent - our waiter was so attentive. Will definitely return.
Enjoyed a first wonderful meal here with elderly mother on a Friday night. We both had terrific pasta dishes--best we'd ever tasted! Believe Pader was the chef who created the tasty meals! Loved the Bartender's choice cocktail! The restaurant was quite nice; especially loved the glow of the large pizza oven in the kitchen. A really nice evening which we hope we can repeat again soon!
Amazing experience Again! Girish the manager is exceptional and his team the best. Brought my staff for a Christmas Dinner. We had the best time! Will definitely come back!
Took almost 3 hours to have a 3 course meal such was the ridiculous wait on servers to both order and deliver to the table between courses. Had booked this online as part of an early bird promotion but was never given the correct menus and charged the full a la carte price. Abysmal service all around, will never return.
Very good food, great value for money, nice staff and pleasant environment. It was great to be able to book a table on-line.
Food was spectacular
Had a lovely evening, staff where great and the food was lovely. Hope to come back soon.
Very good service, one waiter in particular was excellent in checking that the meal went well. So much better than the service for bar food.
The staff were exceptionally good and thoughtful. The guy that attended to us noted my four kids. Engaged with them but directed questions about dessert and when to bring out meals discretely to me. My children noticed how good he was. Sorry I don't remember his name. Lovely family evening enjoyed by us all.
We had a wonderful meal here and will definitely return. it didn't feel like we were in a hotel restaurant. It was warm and busy with a fantastic atmosphere.
Service was excellent
Pricey. (Food and drink.) Very little side with the steak. Nice overall.
Excellent evening, great food and service, thanks
Good service all the time i visit..the food has that authentic Italian taste and menu has great variety of options also catering for vegetarians
I booked the Italian Kitchen for my husbands birthday , we had 25 people , including children. The restaurant was perfect for this , friendly amiable & could not do enough for us. I would highly recommend for families too. We will definitely be returning.
Our waiter pretty much blew us off. One of our steaks was VERY under cooked, & for a fillet, it was a poor quality of meat.
We eat here 6 times a year or so. Excellent staff and a tasty menu. The staff are they key ingredient it must be said.. Every time we are here it seems to be young Dublin people who serve us and they are brilliant..
Lovely food and excellent service.
Service was horrible. First we waited 15 minutes before anyone came to table. Restaurant was only half full. We ordered 2 entrees. Pasta which was very undercooked and a pizza. My pizza arrived 10 minutes after first entree was served to my daughter. I had to ask where the pizza was. It was very apparent that it was never ordered by server.
