Gorgeous Sunday dinner. Had the beef and gammon roast sharing plates. Food was wonderful and the gravy was the best we’ve ever tasted!

We were really well looked after on a busy Friday night - the duck rage lived up to its billing.

I don’t think there was much to choose from on the menu and it could be doing with having more of a selection. The food was fantastic though. The restaurant is lovely and very pleasant staff.

We had a lovely evening, service was friendly & professional. We arrived early but were shown to our table without any problem. Staff gave great advice on menu choices. Will definitely be back.

All in all, we had a lovely night at Il Pirata. The night started off well with a gorgeous round of cocktails and we shared starters which were delicious. We then moved onto some wine which our waiter recommended and it was also fab! When main courses arrived however we were all left a bit disappointed with the majority of the table saying their food was just ok. I had the bolognese and the sauce didn't taste homemade and had no meaty depth or flavour to it. The pasta was also quite over cooked and was a bit watery and wet which didn't help. The sauce was like plain tomato sauce with a few sparse pieces of meat through it. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy it. Although I appreciate it started to get late, service did also slow down towards the end of the evening and we had to call a waiter over to order another round of drinks, then for the bill, then for the card machine. It wasn't as attentive as it had been earlier in the evening. I usually love this restaurant and athompshere & drinks are fab. The food had unfortunately gone down hill a bit. I'd still give it another chance though!

Another excellent meal at Il Pirata; we had brought my cousin and his here, when they visited from Edinburgh two years ago and they loved it so much that they asked to return this month, so we did and they loved it just as much!

A great informal dining experience in the heart of Ballyhackamore-buzzing atmosphere yet always warm cosy and welcoming. Very friendly and helpful staff. Tasty unpretentious food-what more could you need? Needless to say I am a frequent flyer!
