Bowls Of Pasta Worth Craving!

A list of must-try pasta dishes in Dublin.


There is nothing more comforting than a tasty bowl of pasta. While we’re sure you can whip up a delicious dish yourself, we’ve found some options in Dublin that we think you should definitely try.

The dishes we’ve included are ones that we’ve seen on Instagram that instantly made us crave carbs. If you’re looking for a pasta hit this week, read on to find out what we think you should try. Buon appetito!

Grano, Stoneybatter

Grano has been getting rave reviews since it opened last year and with pasta made by a real Italian nonna, it's easy to see why. The green basil pasta below is handmade onsite in Grano, then dressed with organic tomatoes straight from Puglia and fresh burrata. While these flavours are a classic combination, we think this dish looks to die for.

Crudo, Seafort Avenue

Crudo, which is owned by Dunne & Crescenzi, is a southside gem. This dish features housemade spaghetti dressed with seasonal nettle salsa bianca and topped with confit egg yolk and aged ricotta. Nettles are back in season now, so we would say this dish is totally packed full of flavour.

Da Mimmo, North Strand

Da Mimmo on the North Strand is a firm favourite with Dubliners and one glance at this will tell you why. The dishes feature the freshest ingredients matched with fantastic flavours. This seafood spaghetti, which includes clams, mussels and squid, looks like it would certainly brighten your week.

Osteria Lucio, Grand Canal Quay

Osteria Lucio, owned by Ross Lewis of Chapter One and Luciano Tona, offers some of the capital's freshest pasta. Their squid ink pasta is served with Irish crab and scallions, highlighting the flavours of the Irish sea with an Italian twist.

I Monelli, Portobello Road

This seafood cannelloni from I Monelli in Portobello combines monkfish, which is one of our favourite types of fish, with the fresh flavours of wild asparagus and cherry tomato. With so many tasty dishes on offer at I Monelli, you'll struggle to pick just one to try, but we think this is the one we'd go for!
