Review: Ladies Night at Fratelli owned by the Galgorm

Pizza, pasta, wine, ice-cream and Ryan Gosling. There are some combinations that you just can’t dream up for yourself unless someone presents them to you. Luckily those lovely folks at Fratelli, owned by the Galgorm, have done all the hard work for us.

Every Tuesday from 5pm, Fratelli,  based in Belfast and at the Galgorm Resort put on a Ladies Night. With a main course, glass of wine, and selection of desserts to enjoy while watching your favourite tear-jerker or rom-com for only £25, this is the perfect way to turn your Tuesday night in to a Tuesday night out with the girls.

On the 5th of June, we were invited to try out Ladies night for ourselves. We started with the breads to share (focaccia with tapenade and pesto) to ease our post work hunger, followed by theFormaggio e Cipolla pizza (Goats Cheese & Carmelised Red Onion) and the Pork Fillet served in a creamy mushroom sauce with whipped mash, finished off with two glasses of the Via Nova Sauvignon Blanc.

We say ‘finished off’ here, because we easily could’ve been – but in fact it was time for desserts and at last, Ryan Gosling as he stars alongside Rachel Adams in The Notebook. Screened in a space away from the main hubbub of the Fratelli restaurant, the light and airiness makes this a cinema experience like no other. With an assiette of desserts on hand, all ladies were catered for – the chocoholic, the crème brulee Queen and the ice cream lover. Having never tried Morelli’s (shock, horror, gasp) before, the unbelievably smooth Irish Sea-Salted Caramel ice cream nearly brought us to tears – never mind the movie.

By the end of evening, there was not a dry eye in sight as our two star-crossed lovers said their goodbyes. We did too, regretfully, as it was time to go home and prepare for work the next day, not forgetting that for one week night we were off-duty enjoying delicious food … and actors alike. Ladies night? It might just be our new favourite night of the week.

Fratelli are currently running a competition for Ladies Night attendees, if you fill out their competition form on the evening you will be entered for a draw to win lunch for two in The Gillies restaurant and a full day spa experience. You have to be in it to win it!


  • Get together with the girls for a Main Course, Glass of Wine, Mini Dessert Buffet & Private Movie Screening for £25 per person.
