DinaDina has earned a strong following since opening on Upper Arthur Street, where the authentic flavours of Milan are celebrated from the original recipes from the owners’ families.

The current menu, which includes the award winning Piadina (a freshly baked flat bread from the North of Italy) and also bakery style pizza will be taken to the next level with a stone baked “big one”, which will include the Italian classic Margherita, as well as the fresh ingredients and toppings (with some new extras) already used for the Piadina.

Alessandro de Meo, proprietor, said: “The Belfast food scene is buzzing and we are delighted to have been so warmly welcomed by our lunchtime customers.

The pizza menu at DinaDina was launched on Friday 16 December to invited guests and some lucky regular customers, who were able to sample a selection of the new items as well as learn some of the unwritten rules of Italian food.

“Our menu would make an Italian mamma proud. We don’t compromise and we keep it simple. That means you won’t find chicken or pineapple on pizza and we don’t use pepperoni (which is not even an Italian word) but proper Italian spicy salame. What you will find is authentic flavours which from January 2017 will be served in a 12 inch pizzas during our new evening opening hours on Friday and Saturday and it will also be available on Deliveroo for home delivery.

“We are also delighted to announce that we are partnering with OhhSocial and from January 2017 diners will be able to make the most of our great menu with exclusive 2-4-1 meals as part of their subscription to the leading app.”

DinaDina – Food, the Italian Way is located on 52 Upper Arthur Street Belfast and is currently open Mon – Fri 08:00 – 18:00 and Sat 11:30 – 17:00.
