I have visited Il Pirata several times since it opened, most recently just two weeks ago. The menu is varied with lots of local and seasonal produce on offer. The Beef Cheeks were on the specials menu when we last visited and were truly melt in the mouth to die for. I had seafood linguine as a main and it was beautiful. Soft as butter pieces of calamari and a delicious light and creamy sauce.
The service is functional, but not overly efficient or friendly, the decor is industrial and rather dark in the evenings, bring a torch for the menu. I am not a fan of staff wearing what they like, but I may be a dinosaur.Also, if you like quiet and intimate go elsewhere, it has no soft furnishings so is extremely noisy.
Overall the food is top quality but I feel the service and decor could be cheered up a little.
Oh and the loo is grotty but mostly clean.
