Had a nice evening in this restaurant. Sevice was very good. Food was tasty but left disappointed at the quantity. Cheese board was especially bad value £7.50 for small slithers of 3 cheeses. A good restaurant should leave you perfectly satisfied or even to allow you to leave a little left on your plate. This restaurant left me wanting more. Not a place to visit if you are hungry. Don't think I will be rushing back unless the portions improve!

Previously ate here when it was Hooples. Decor slightly revamped - nice idea with green wine bottle display in window.
Arrived at 11.57am for lunch (service starts at noon) to be informed that we were "early, but the chef might be in"......
•Seated promptly but nowhere to hang our wet coats - we just draped over the back of the chair in the end.
•Lunch menu - sparse and difficult to decipher. Translation leaves out important dish info. Specials board expands choice somewhat but prices are steep!
•Had difficulty deciding what to go for as menu did not 'read' well and tantalise my cranial taste buds :-) Eventually chose soup (tasty but no breads offered) and Parmesan pasta (ok but small portion despite £8)
•Staff's attention a little hard to attract to request bill. Took waitress 10mins to process card as paper roll ran out during printing of receipt.
•Noted at outset the 'discretionary' 10% service charge..... SO cheeky and for this presumption alone, we would not be rushing to go back. If they're going to add a service charge on without permission, the service and food/dining experience needs to be faultless.....hmmmmmm.

The food was good but the portions are really small. I had the rocket salad with blue cheese to start it was really good but served on a slate - which I personally hate. For my main I had chicken with pasta it was also good but that was it a small chicken breast beaten out so it was thin served with a small portion of pasta more like a starter price

Great idea Italian themed food and wine , perfect small plates for lunch. Should do really well ! Some faces there from other Belfast Restaurants past and i believe a new head chef from the channel isles . In the right place as well ....Look out Chelsea !
