Love the menu tweaks while retaining some old favourites . Missing the strawberry daiquiri but nice gin selection to make up for it .

I have been to Il pirata over 10 times in the past 12 months and have never experienced the dreadful service that we had. It took 1hour 45mins from time we arrived to us getting our mains! With a three year old in tow, that is an impossible situation Fortunately he ate with the starters! The staff just said it was a busy night???!! There were lots of starters to be made etc etc. Absolutely ridiculous I won’t be back for a long time!

It was so uncomfortably warm in the restaurant, we had to eat our main course and leave

Food by all 8 guests unanimously first class, staff were really attentive, food aware and engaging. So much genuine choice for all food lovers. So sorry to say that there is a but, we experienced this wonderful treat without a basic restaurant management school level 1 rule to keep guests comfortable between 19°C and 22°C, instead we suffered very high 20's. If this easy to fix variable was sorted it would be very hard to find any fault with il Parata, in fact it's right up there with the best of Belfast.

We arrived at 1pm and immediately got shown to our table. We ordered but over an hour later we were still waiting for our mains. The food was lovely but the service wasn't. Not necessarily the floor staff more the kitchen. Although the server at no time kept us updated or apologised for the slow service. We will not be returning anytime soon.

Very nice meal with friends. Some of the portions might have been a little on the small side. Also the menu could be a little clearer with main courses stuck over at the left hand side. Nice atmosphere and well served!

Beautiful meal once again in a lovely restaurant. Great to see it very busy as always with families, groups of friends and couples like ourselves. Service as always was excellent. Can’t fault it in any way-food, drinks, service, atmosphere all fab!
