Tried The Chubby Cherub on a Saturday lunch time with family while shopping. Small restaurant not far from Cornmarket and serving Itailian food. Has a service charge of 10 per cent on all tables added to your bill so forget that tip. Food is very good we had bread with dipping sauces and Stuffed Portobello Mushroom's ,Mussel' s in white...

Our son treated my wife and i to a very tasty meal for her birthday in this quaint little place. He choose it because we are both big fans of the Italian culture, land, food and drink, and although we have experienced all of these on our visits to Italy, we both agree that the Chubby Cherub is as close...

Tried here on the off chance and very glad we did. Tiny restaurant with unusual décor that works. Very friendly (non Italian) hostess who looked after everything front of house very well and simple but great tasting food. Would certainly return if in Belfast again - Recommended.

Loved the layout very Italian atmosphere. Music was relaxing. Food was amazing. My girlfriend is lactose intolerant and they altered 90% dishes for her to have a selection.

Been wanting to try here for ages and was not disappointed. Online booking system is so handy. The restaurant itself is just gorgeous-small and cosy. The hubby had the goats cheese crostini to start, he loved it. I had the stuffed portobella mushrooms. They were so flavourful. For main he had a pizza but he was silly and ordered a... More

Sometimes it amazes me when you are not looking for anything in particular you end up amazed and so it was with the Chubby Cherub. Just adored this place, it is small quaint quirky decor. Met at the door by a beautiful young lady who was to be our hostess for the evening and it was just positive from there... More

This is the definitely the best Italian I have ever eaten and I've been to Italy. It was absolutely perfect and there is nothing I could fault, the food was outstanding and the staff were polite and attentive. Unlike larger chain Italian restaurants, this had a wonderful atmosphere and our choice to eat here seemed personal. I would most definitely... More

Booked dinner here for Halloween night, we really enjoyed it. The food was delicious and definitely the best pizza I have had in a long time. We really enjoyed the intimate atmosphere that this restaurant offers. Can't wait to eat here on our next trip to Belfast

I have never had a bad meal in the chubby cherub nor bad service! ( touch wood ) Though the place is a bit small so can be difficult to get into around peak times or with large parties. Food is delicious and drinks service is top notch. Price wise I'd say it is mid range not cheap but not... More
