I'm pirata is one of our favourite places to eat, and we brought some visiting family along and they were really impressed with the food, drink and service. I was so happy to be able to get the gnocchi side too despite it not being on the menu...thanks for that...never stop doing those! Desserts this time were great too, that white choc panna cotta mmm :-D

Il Pirata continues to be one of my favourite restaurants in Belfast. Never had a bad meal or service in all my visits.

We took friends as they have never been before. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals, however, if I was being totally honest I felt the pork ragu was a little bland. I felt it lack depth of flavour. It certainly wouldn’t put me off going back but I would choose something different.

Booked in for the 3 Antipasti & carafe deal for £16. Food was delicious and as we chose this offer as our main course, this gave us a choice of tasty dishes to enjoy. Superb value!

Honestly our favourite place to eat.. it’s lovely no matter what you order,we can never choose as it’s all so good so we order ALOT of food lol Although we’d love if the goat meatballs and duck ravioli came back :) such lovely staff and a nice chilled out atmosphere. All at a reasonable price..Love it! Plus the cocktails are worth a try :)

I suspect there was an understaffing issue the evening we were there. The email told us we had to give up our table after 2 hours but we waited about 45 minutes between starter and main so we felt a little under pressure towards the end as 1 member of our group chose to have dessert. Our mains were served at different times also so I felt rude eating my pizzetta while friends waited but it was over 5 minutes until theirs appeared on so I wanted to eat mine while it was warm. Apart from the long waits the servers were lovely.

Food and service were both superb. This was our third visit and hopefully won’t be to long for the fourth. My wife and I both love you duck ragu.
