    Coppi is blessed with the sheer brilliance of Tony O'Neill. The adherence to quality ingredients — meat from Peter Hannan's, which must surely be the best in Ireland — is rewarded with excellent cooking and the result is an experience which demands applause.

    Joris Minne (Belfast Telegraph)

    Coppi, launched by a veteran Belfast chef and restaurateur called Tony O'Neill. It looks like a Jamie's Italian on steroids, all heavy wood tables and white tiling. The intention is similar. It is meant to be a casual place, lighting sparklers rather than fireworks… terrific charred breads, and a selection of steaks supplied by the extraordinary local meat producer Peter Hannan, who ages beef from shorthorns fed on clover, in a chiller room walled in Himalayan salt. Yes, really. Apparently the salt acts as an antibiotic.

    I've tried the beef, and it is something special. It has a depth of flavour and dense texture without that "something just died in the corner" flavour you get with less-cared-for muscle. Best of all at Coppi was a stonking duck pasta dish, for a very reasonable £12.50, of fat ravioli stuffed with a fine ducky ragu, overlaid with more of the same, the whole spun through with fat flakes of crisped duck skin. It was deep and outrageous and completely unfinishable. Naturally I finished it.

    Jay Rainer (The Guardian)

    Set on the ground floor of a purpose built property in the Cathedral Quarter. It's big and buzzy, with rustic furnishings and leather booths, and staff are bright and friendly. Good value Italian dishes; start with a selection of cichetti.
