Belfast’s latest chic eatery CIPRIANI Bar, Grill & Pizzeria on the Lisburn Road has brought a brand new and most innovative eating and drinking concept to the city.

Boasting an Italian Restaurant, Pizzeria, Tapas Bar and Music Lounge all in one, CIPRIANI brings tasty, fresh food to Belfast using traditional Italian ingredients with the very best of local produce.

This modern Italian restaurant offering is made all the more contemporary by its luxe surroundings throughout the establishment’s three levels. Dine in the restaurant downstairs and make the most of a wonderful, wide array of traditional Italian homemade dishes, paired with a choice wine from CIPRIANI’s specially selected wine list, and views over the pizza bar for chef watching.

Alternatively, head upstairs to the Tapas Bar and decadent Music Lounge to sip on a cocktail or three and chat over a medley of ‘Spuntini’, the delicious Italian twist on tapas which are available every day in the bar until late. What is more, CIPRIANI brings entertainment to the Music Lounge every weekend, the perfect accompaniment to great friends, delicious food and refreshing drinks.

Proud CIPRIANI proprietor Salvo Liberante is no stranger to the Northern Ireland restaurant scene with an impressive portfolio of successful venues to date including the highly popular Speranza and the former much-loved Café Milano. Salvo comments: “At CIPRIANI we have reflected our passion for Italian culinary fayre in a menu brimming with great quality dishes, expertly executed and perfectly presented in stylish surroundings. We offer honest, home-from-home Italian cuisine at its best and look forward to putting Italy on South Belfast’s map.”
