Set on the Golden Mile, (Belfast's entertainment epicentre, our version of Piccadilly Circus, only with less lights), Speranza's is a popular Belfast eatery. Indeed Speranza's was one of the pioneers, bringing new tastes to what was once a culinary-challenged city. It has recently been refurbished, to three times its original size, and serves good Italian fare - pasta dishes, salads and pizzas with meals starting from around £10-£14 (based on two courses) and a bottle of house wine from around £8. You can bring your own wine - no beers or spirits are allowed - but there is a £2 corkage fee. Brad Pitt ate here to develop his Italian accent for his role as an IRA terrorist in The Devil's Own - if you've seen the film you'll realise how successful he was.
This is a great Italian restaurant in the centre of town. Great choice of food from their menu. Very good service. i would agree with the other review only downside not being able tobook in advance, but from the long wait - its a good sign of a great restaurant.
I have become a regular in SPeranza since it was recently taken over during the summer..
Yeah there are always times when we have an ok experience in a restaurant... but what's 30 mins wait on a Sat night??
I have eaten here 6 or 7 times since August... and cannot fault the staff, their attitude or the service..
Too often in Belfast, good service means fast service... no one notices friendliness, politeness!!! It's all speed, speed, speed!!
I bet to differ with the previous comment!!!
just been back to speranza whilst visitng home after living in usa for past 7 years , what a change!!! the decor and almost everything that goes with it has improved considerably,the expansion is wonderful, the new upper floor is fantastic with great views over shaftesbury square,whilst u sit in plush comfort on leather clad sofas,enjoying a drink whilst waiting a short while on ur table.I see that after my friday and saturday night visits, [yes we did go back the next evening],that after all these years its still as busy and as popular as ever...the food was tasty, well presented ,and service was, as always has been the case really fast for such a busy place,coupled with the excellent waiting staff and extremely pleasant managers johnny and manu ,the uplifting experience and great atmosphere speranza has been famous for hasnt been lost ,a fantastic place to eat whether going there to destress the toils of parenthood or with having the kids on tow,,[more play dough please for the kids it does keep em amused thank you] cant wait to return this summer it made our vacation back home Thomas Hemmings and family ,LA in the USA
we went for a friends birthday. we had a table booked for 7.30pm but ended up waiting for another 1/2 hour because the staff didn't know what they were doing. we got eventually seated, then it was another 15 minutes before our drinks order was taken! then we were waiting even longer for our food order was taken. i thought this was very poor, especially as there was over 20 of us! eventually our food arrived and i cannot say anything bad about the food as it was absolutely lovely! but again, we were left waiting for ages for our sweet order to be taken.
then to top it all off at the end, they decided to put a 10% service charge on top of the final bill which i thought was terrible considering the prices they were charging. then they were expecting a tip on top of that which i am pleased to say they never got. i think you can safely say, even though the food was good, i will not be going back any time soon.
