The Irish Times:

“Another reliable place and one that won’t break the bank.”

“The food is delicious and reasonably priced, the staff friendly, the atmosphere easy-going and laid back.”

“He forgot what good value was until he returned to the Independent Pizza Company in Drumcondra recently, where two lunchtime main courses and two glasses of the house red can be had for little more than €20.”

The Sunday Tribune:

“The cheesecake looks so ordinary, so unassuming, the white cheesy bit sitting firmly on the khaki biscuity bit. But taste and see. The creaminess, the richness is almost too much. Then dip it in the blackcurrant coulis and….well, words fail me.”

The Dubliner Restaurant Guide:

“Southsiders venturing into Bertie’s stomping ground for the rugger will be relieved by the sight of this sister restaurant to South Anne Street’s Gotham Café. Yes, we love Perki Chick, and Apache provides adequate stomach-liners, but this pizzeria, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, is a slice above its competition on the Drumcondra Road strip. Back when Independent Pizza opened in the 1980s, the height of sophistication was pineapple as a topping.”

“Early evening, it’s packed with young families – high chairs and crayons as far as the eye can see – so we tend to go in later (the kitchen’s open until 11pm). Book early on match days – it’s always jammers.”

Georgina Campbell’s Ireland Guide:

“A sister restaurant of the popular Gotham Café just off Grafton Street , the Independent Pizza Company is in smart new premises and the menu includes many of the Gotham favourites, so you can expect to find designer salads and contemporary pasta dishes, for example, alongside the excellent range of gourmet pizzas for which they are best known.”

“Family-friendly (crayons, colouring books provided) and a handy place for a meal on the way to the airport. Lunchtime specials are good value and there’s a good drinks menu, including speciality coffees.”

The Guardian:

“This is a very popular pizza restaurant in Dublin’s increasingly trendy north side suburb Drumcondra, the home of Ireland’s current prime minister, Bertie Ahern. Their slogan states that they’ve being serving Dublin’s favourite pizza since 1984, and quite frankly, I find it hard to disagree. Might I also add that their spicy chicken wings aren’t half bad either?”

“Edward Hopper fans will love to dine here and gaze at prints of his finest paintings whilst their pizza is being cooked in the large woodstone oven. The oven’s flames provide atmospheric lighting and are also quite hypnotising if you grow tired of gazing at paintings (or into your dining partner’s eyes).”
