About il Pirata
Trendy restaurant with quirky decor and a casual vibe serving creative, contemporary Italian dishes.
Really great atmosphere and delicious food.
We have been to Il Pirata a lot of times and have always enjoyed our food. On the last couple of times we have been there we have been a bit disappointed. I really like the duck ragu with gnocchi and recommended it to my friends but it was watery and lacking flavour. I had to send my polenta cake back because it was dry. The kids food was excellent and so were the starters and the service was as always really good. The portion sizes are much smaller than they used to be and it ended up being a very expensive dinner. I think if they can't be consistent I will have to take my business elsewhere. It's a shame because it was always my go to restaurant.
Love this restaurant, consistently 10/10 for food, atmosphere and service.
Great selection of small plates and wines
Scallop linguine special was perfection
Excellent food, excellent service- we go to Il Pirata 4-5 times/year and have never been disappointed!
Fantastic meal on Saturday 23/11/19. We are vegetarian and I had the butternut squash with Parmesan fries my husband had the polenta side with a vegetarian pizza. . Excellent service and food. Delighted as previously we had a few bad experiences which were disappointing. Many thanks.
Great food! Only criticism I had was the restaurant was so warm last night! Found ourselves fanning ourselves to cool down! Other than that food, drinks and service where great.
Favourite place in ballyhack for vegetarian food - the menu changes regularly so you never get bored. Great vegan menu too - great food, lovely service!
Great food again, scallops a little pricey for what we got but still delicious, will be back again soon 😊
Beautiful food and great service as always
We were a fairly big group but the service was great. Staff were incredibly patient and attentive. The food was excellent. We will definitely be back.
Very friendly service, we all commented on lovely atmosphere, it was quiet but still great atmosphere
Excellent experience. Staff were very friendly- comfortably casual, but professional. Restaurant is comfortable, good lighting with a nice mix of atmosphere and privacy. Food was excellent, fresh and tasty. Prices were good for mains, although dessert was a bit expensive. Overall very satisfied, and would love to go back.
Amazing service, amazing food and a great atmosphere! These guys phoned me when I left behind my wallet and couldn’t have been more accommodating!
Food was fantastic first time at the restaurant and will be back
Great food, excellent service and good value for money,
Relaxed atmosphere, great service, yummy food, good wine too! What not to like?!
Rosemary and garlic potatoes not cooked through,the arancini balls featured uncooked rice inedible and the tiramisu had no alcohol in it bland. Very disappointing visit not your usual standard the only highlight was our waitress Chloe a diamond in the rough who dealt with our complaints with professional aplomb
Food was delicious and service was fantastic but felt it was expensive as one of the main courses didn't come with a side.
Another fantastic visit to Il Pirata. It never fails to delight. Excellent food, drinks and service. Hands down my favourite restaurant.
Fabulous food as always! Butternut squash ravioli is perfection, team up with some green veg for your side.
Never had a bad meal at Il Pirata. Very enjoyable dining experience. Food and service are great.
Friendly staff...good food
We had a great meal with excellent service in a lovely atmosphere. There are so many places to eat in Ballyhackamore these days, but Il Pirata is the best.
