Italian Restaurant

Belli Dentro 

We’ve already built an enviable reputation since we opened in Dun Laoghaire two years ago – for superbly-cooked Italian food at reasonable prices (thanks to Max and Valentina) and friendly and efficient service (overseen by Valentina).

Now, after a couple of lockdowns, we’re open again with a full table service menu featuring all our great dishes. And, of course, you can still order a takeaway meal. Or just enjoy some of our coffee and cakes. Whichever, we hope to see or hear from you soon.

To book a table or order a takeaway meal, phone: 083 866 3784
