Il Pirata Restaurant

Eating Out

Il Pirata serves rustic Italian food, with a focus on ‘cichetti' style dining (to share) in East Belfast's Ballyhackamore.

Named after veteran Italian cyclist Marco Pantani (‘the pirate'), Il Pirata has as much character as its namesake, with an urban vibe and minimalist design, aimed at making customers feel chilled and relaxed and letting the food do the talking. Specialities include its Sunday Sharing roast porchette and beef brisket; and its fresh pasta made daily in house.
