Win a three-course dinner for two at Italian restaurant La Caverna and two tickets to the opening night celebration of J.M. Synge's The Playboy of the Western World at the newly restored Smock Alley Theatre 1662, on Thursday July 12th.

A proud member of 'Ciao Italia', a worldwide group of fine Italian restaurants, La Caverna is a little taste of Italy in Dublin, creating a tradition of excellence. Experience off-the-pier fresh seafood, hand-cut beef filets, scrumptious stews or any of our other mouthwatering dishes.

The menu emphasises the use of simple fresh ingredients, skilfully combined to bring out the best of a wide range of traditional Italian dishes. The newly renovated 300 year-old wine cellar dining area is a beautifully crafted 18th Century Barrel vault updated with soft lighting and superb selection of wines.

La Caverna also has great offers available from Sunday – Thursday; Choose any two selected dishes and pay for just one and another offer to receive a 20% discount voucher. Both offers are present on the website.

The Playboy of the Western World runs at Smock Alley Theatre from Tuesday, 10th July – Sunday 5th August. Smock Alley Players' second production sees Patrick Sutton direct Ireland's best-loved play.
