Dina Dina, Upper Arthur Street, Belfast
On a glorious sunny day in Belfast after a lunch time dander round a packed City Centre I called in to Dina Dina for a bite to eat.
Dina Dina is a family run Italian fast food restaurant right in the Centre of Belfast just a hop down the street from Corn Market.
These guys, all the way from Milan, do their food in a truly Italian way using original family recipes. Their signature is without doubt the ’piadina’, an authentic Italian flatbread baked fresh daily in the restaurant and served with a large choice of tasty veggie and meat fillings. You can also have the fillings in a bowl for gluten free folk.
Also on offer are filled paninis, pizza, pasta (Thursday & Friday), a few sides, desserts and hot & cold drinks.
I went for the ‘Ciccio’ Italian sausage (also made fresh in-house) with juicy roasted peppers, smoked cheese and a sweet bbq sauce. Very fresh, very delicious!
I’m far from being a sun worshipper so I sat in studying the cool framed posters and the impressive wall graffiti, a mix of famous Italian faces.
I love the ‘early bird’ lunch offer they do, any piadina for £4.50 if you get there before 12.15. A bargain for something fresh and filling.
Un pranzo squisito from Dina Dina. Grazie guys!
